Taking notes helps me retain information...even when studying the Bible. This week’s study had me tracking Jesus’ linage, crying at the reminder of how much he loves us, and knowing that this month we will celebrate his birth. #seamlessbiblestudy
God’s love for us is a beautiful thing. When I feel like I’m about to be consumed by fear and hopelessness, I just need to remember to stand firm and let God fight for me. I can’t imagine the overwhelming fear the Israelites were feeling when they saw the Egyptians coming after them that day. But God kept his promise and made a way out for them. ❤️ #seamlessbiblestudy #exodus14 #standfirm #Godspromise
These girls. ❤️ I “met” them over FaceTime when our small group first started. I couldn’t attend for the first 4 weeks due to a lupus flare. I had no voice and couldn’t communicate but they included me in their group via technology and made me feel loved and important. The first day I actually met them in person, it wasn’t a big deal. No big fuss was made. They welcomed me with open arms and treated me as if I’d been there from the start. ❤️ It was perfect. These girls are amazing. Gracious, funny, forgiving... real people doing real life and showing the love of Jesus through it all.
Now I’m just sad that I won’t see them every week. I’m sure they have no idea the extent, but I’m so very thankful for each of them. 🥰

On slow mornings when we’re not rushing to get out the door, I sit in the living room and read my devotion while the kids eat breakfast or play. Most of the time, my sweet girl crawls up in my lap and occasionally will ask questions about what I’m reading. (Today she brought her makeup too!) Of course, what I’m reading is over her head right now, but I explain it anyway because it won’t always be.
I want to starting preparing her (and her brothers) now. I want to teach them young about the love of Christ. I want them to have a foundation on which to grow and learn. I want them to grow up with a desire to learn about God and to know Him.
My most precious calling is to be their Momma! And that means showing them that it’s important to always be learning. That just because they know who God is doesn’t mean that they know everything about Him. That in order to share His love with others, they have to understand and accept it for themselves. I pray that they are always as inquisitive as they are now and that they develop a deep love for knowing God. 💕

Starting my day early this morning with black coffee, bible study, my cozy robe, and then a workout.
I’ve realized that starting my day as soon as I hear the kids get up is not what is best for me. When that happens I usually wake up more grouchy, more rushed to get things done, more stressed... On the days I wake up early, drink my coffee, spend time with God or doing some sort of personal development, and sometimes even getting a workout in, I am SO much better off.
The hardest part is getting out of bed. I am guilty of pushing snooze 75% of the time. I feel a New Years resolution coming on!! Are you a morning person?

Bible study tonight...who knew there was so much drama...lies, drunkenness, and deceit. Yet, so much obedience, love, and trust.
This morning I was able to spend a little time in my Bible while I had my coffee. I don’t get to do this very often because of, well, kids. But today, only two got up extra early and they stayed calm long enough for me to read a bit.
This morning’s lesson was on the beginning of the church, being filled with the Holy Spirit, and The Great Commission. I consider it part of my calling as a mom to teach my children about these things daily. One of the ways I do this is that the four of us pray on the way to school every morning and I ask God to help them show His love to everyone they come in contact with. At 6 and 3, learning to show God’s love is a vital step to them later being able to share His message with people. 💕
Matthew 28:19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Did you grow up reading the Bible? I did not, and don’t know ALL of the major events. I know the BIG ones, but not many others. I never thought about reading children’s bibles to help get a better understanding of some of these other stories until starting #seamlessbiblestudy
So much easier to comprehend! 🤯
In the midst of our growing family an online bible study opportunity presented itself to me. Initial goal was to spend 20 minutes each morning, I haven’t met it yet but a Saturday afternoon with a sleeping babe by my side and the other two men in the House fulfilling their PlayStation fantasies, it’s time for me to hit the reset button and see where this journey will lead me #week2 #seamlessbiblestudy @casey.renner7
is the best for taking charge and leading over 60 women
Tonight is our final session. What a wonderful study this has been. Come and join us as we discuss the final week. The lovely Beth Ann is hosting us AND feeding us this week! Check our Facebook page or message me for the address.
You guys.. this bible study has changed my life and I’m only halfway done 😱 If you’ve never read a page of the Bible in your life or have insecurities, doubts, or questions, I encourage you to get the Seamless bible study and make a promise to God that you will devout 6 weeks to learning His word. This book is so relatable, easy to understand, and makes it such a fun experience ☺️ HUGE thank you and shoutout to Madi & Karris for organizing this bible study
This was the last week of our Seamless study. I love how different it was from ones of done in the past. Love the history it covered and the linking of chapters & stories. The things that were brought to my attitude that I’ve never heard before. Really makes you dig a little deeper.
You know you’re a work from home mom when your kids ask you where you’re going when you put on jeans 😂🙌🏼💯 Soph took this picture because she said “we need to remember the special moments mom, like wearing pants!!” 🤣💖 Anywho 😂😂 so excited for tonight! Headed to my very first Bible study! So expectant for the next 8 weeks ❤️❤️
I’m really enjoying this #seamlessbiblestudy
. It’s a nice overview of the big picture of the Bible.
I’m also loving #Inktober
and how I now find myself drawing more often- like on the cover of my workbook.
Thank you @angiesmith19
for each teaching and inspiring in your own unique way! 💜
Our second to last session is tonight! Join us at my house at 6:30pm!
So excited to be reading my new bible study... perfect way to spend Baby Ainsley’s nap time catching up. Love all the things I’m learning with an amazing group of ladies @heystudysisters
🙏🏼Who wants to join us 🙋🏻♀️ Thanks to @heymadinelson
for creating an online bible study to meet every Sunday. After a long week, it’s nice to be refreshed gather with empowering women feeding on the nourishing words from our Father to us. (Frankincense is great for grounding during prayer and being in the word!) 🙌🏼 #biblestudy #seamlessbiblestudy
Waiting for the group to arrive and praying over our time together. Tonight we wrap up the Old Testament and this week we launch into studying the Messiah against the backdrop of our newly acquired historical context.
This study has taught me so much in just 1 month! The gospel is such a strong contrast to the struggles of the Old Testament. Can't wait to share with my sisters tonight!
Also, purple pens make me happy.

And that’s a wrap! •
I just completed my favorite study yet! I have been discouraged over the past year or so because of my lack of knowledge and understanding of the Bible. I have tried doing small studies here and there, and have tried reading the Bible chapter by chapter in the order they’re listed (which you’re apparently not supposed to do). I always found myself getting frustrated and discouraged whenever something didn’t make sense to me. I thought, “I’m 26 years old, I should know this by now!”. But, the truth is, we’re all always learning more about God’s word. You should never feel less than because you’re not at the same level as another Christian. The author of this study, Angie Smith, read children’s bibles in college to get a better understanding of God’s word - I don’t know about you, but that encourages me to not be so hard on myself! Angie goes through the Bible from beginning to end in this study and really helps us grasp an overall understanding of the Bible. She puts things into perspective and digs into the small details that I have always overlooked and deemed unimportant. I feel so full after this study and cannot wait to learn more and be able to help others know Jesus! #seamlessbiblestudy #biblestudy
This is our second to last week of Seamless and this week we begin connecting the Old Testament to the New Testament. I’m excited to see how more of the Bible will come into focus after all we’ve learned.
Sunday morning quiet time! Digging into my new study our group started I am loving it! Has anyone else done #seamlessbiblestudy
We’re over halfway through our Seamless study! I’m looking forward to session 5 with you. See y’all Thursday! (Remember, your presence is a blessing so come even if every day isn’t completed. We’d love to fellowship with you!)
Ending my #seamlessbiblestudy

God loves to take the broken and weak things of the world and make them beautiful for His glory. •
I so many times, have been down on myself and wonder.. why.. I ask God “why”. But instead.. I should be asking: “How can I use this to serve? How can I spread the glory of you through this weakness?” Because in my weakness, He makes me strong! Today is another migraine day, which is causing me to have some anxiety.. I didn’t sleep well last night either... so I am in a bit of a fog. Normally, I’d let it get to me. I’d let the situation drag me down... but nope, “I’m telling the devil, no, not today” - @hillsong
What is something you feel has made you weak that you could use to help someone else? How do you think you could serve others through your weakness?
Paul: “Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. ****For when I am weak, then I am strong.****” 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
Scriptures to Read: Philippians 4:11-13 ; Jeremiah 29:11 ; Isaiah 40:29-31 #seamlessbiblestudy
Rayna and I decided to use our Thursday mornings together to work through a teen Bible Study! #seamlessbiblestudy
Now living in South Florida there’s one thing I truly miss living back in the mountain state....FALL! I miss the leaves 🍁 , brisk air, bonfires, WVU football etc. I can’t complain too much because I have sunshine all the time and I’m not too far from the ocean (red tide sucks) so in order to make me feel like fall which includes : bible reading, pumpkin spice waffles, and last but def not least: hot tea with Thieves! Thieves is such a wonderful smell but it reminds me of fall back home every time I smell or taste it! Thieves is a combo of cinnamon, lemon, clove, eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary. Theives also kills 99.96 of bacteria and germs! And the best part about it is that it’s natural! You also get Thieves vitality in your awesome premium kit with so much more! So here’s to thieves for being my new fall bff 🍁🧙🏻♀️🍂🌙 #essentialoils #mountaineersarealwaysfree #fallsmells #seamlessbiblestudy #yogitea #localhoney
We’ll be discussing session 4 tonight at Stacey’s House! Please check the event or message us for the address!
Tonight we meet and discuss the homework from session 1 as well as the into to session 2, The Patriarchs. I hope you can join us!
I'm so excited to have you all in my home this week! Thursday at 6:30pm will be the start of our first session, see you there!
In all transparency, my studying of the Pentateuch usually ends with Exodus. After that, well, the others are kind of (okay, very) hard to read. This past week, the study I’ve been following (Seamless by @angiesmith19
) led me through the other three & y’all, I had been missing something oh so important that I couldn’t help but share.
I knew Moses never entered the promised land because he sinned against God—but I had never read Deut. 34. God took 120 year old Moses high on a hill & showed him the land he had promised his people. Then, right then & there, He buried Moses.
What a tender image of God showing His beloved Moses that He kept His promise. Then, God Himself buried Moses’ failing body & brought Him Home to be with the Father. Almost as if to say: your work here is finished—they made it—now come enjoy enternity.
Oh, my heart.
