  • A Rule for Health and Growth.
•
A "rule" is used for measuring by a set of standards. A "Rule of Life" describes a set of practices by which we can measure and ensure growth and stability in life. I've lived with my own personal rule in life for over a year now, and it's transformed the way I live and structure my life. •
A Pastoral Rule for Today is a necessary return to the core practices that found and stabilize a pastor amidst the ever-growing demands of ministry. Every pastor should have a rule to live by that includes community, prayer, devotional and scholarly reading of Scripture, intellectually pursuing theology. Organizing and structuring life with these as the foundation will ensure health and growth.
•
This book details 7 different aspects of a Pastoral Rule, founded within the life and practice of numerous Church Theologians and Pastors: Augustine, Calvin, Newman, Bonhoeffer, Benedict, Wesley, and Gregory the Great. Each chapter draws on their writings, life, and theology to show the importance of each specific practice. There's a lot of good in this book, and if you've never written a rule for yourself this is a good place to start. On the whole, it's spectacular. In the detail, I found each chapter to be a bit long and overdrawn by the historical/biographical narratives (the concepts for each rule are relatively simple, and there seemed to be more words than necessary to accomplish each chapter).
•
If you're a pastor, check this book out. If you're not a pastor, you'll still find a ton of insight and resource in this book.

  • I said to my bedroom wall after all of my strength and positivity had shriveled down to very little, "It is not well!" That's just how it is sometimes. Things don't always seem "well."
•
It took some time for me to REMEMBER God. The truth is- My circumstances themselves weren't well, but God was with me. I had everything I needed in Christ! Though I didn't feel well, all of it was making me depend on God.
•
It was all making me more mature and like Christ. None of it was without an eternal design from God. I took a moment to look over some other hardships I had endured.
•
I worshipped because the same God that was for me then was the same God who was for me at that moment...and at THIS moment.
•
It is the same for you too, my sister in Christ! Whatever your portion is right now, God is towards you. He has not forgotten...It Is Well! Remember this and Rest in the Rock of Ages.

The phrase “quiet time” is tossed around causally in most Christian circles. But if you didn’t grow up in church, you’re probably wondering the same thing we’ve all wondered at some point: What does the phrase “quiet time” actually mean? And what does it practically look like to spend time with God?
•
Most of us hit the ground running each morning and go to bed exhausted later that night. We spend our days accomplishing tasks, big and small, that keep our families and lives in order. With busy schedules and instant access to the noise of social media, it’s pretty hard to find any type of quiet in our lives.
•
Spending time with God looks different for every person, but there are three things that will help us hear from God in any season.
•
3 Essential Elements to Help Us Hear God's Voice
•
1. The Bible
The Bible is the living, active word of God. It is how God most clearly speaks to people. Regardless of the season of life we are in (student, single, married, working, etc.), everyone can take their relationship with God to a deeper level by reading in the Bible. Think of it like a letter from God to you, explaining who He is, where you came from and who He’s made you to be.

Reading the Bible every day can change the rest of your days. If you’re not sure where to start, try an online Bible reading plan or study. A journal or notebook is a great way to write down verses in the Bible that speak to your heart so you can remember them later.
•
2. Prayer
Prayer is our direct connection to Jesus. Philippians 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” As we pray, we share our worries, doubts, and fears with Jesus, and we thank Him for all the good gifts in our lives. Prayer is a time to communicate honestly and sincerely with Jesus and give him honor and praise.
•
3. A Distraction-Free Environment
Jesus often had to leave town to get a few moments alone with His heavenly Father (Luke 5:16). Thankfully, most of us don’t have to leave town to get alone.
•
Reading the Bible just 10 minutes a day, every day, can change the rest of your days.

  • The desire to have a flat stomach and toned arms will never be enough to keep me disciplined in how I steward this body here on this earth. 
I realized this the other day. Colossians 3:2 hit me like a ton of bricks- “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
‭‭
This body will not last. It will pass away with the former things but my mind- the health of my soul, the perspective on how I view this temple- is here to stay. 
Eternity is coming and when I’m face to face with Jesus He’s probably not going to ask me about the time I missed a day on my 30 day workout challenge but instead He might ask, “How did you use those hands I gave you?” “Did you take your legs for granted?” “Did you spend your days sitting or did you get up and move?” I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with wanting to be lean and toned and fit (heck I want that even now) but I think the key to seeing change is discipline and discipline is found in the perspective shift that earth isn’t forever. It starts in our mind and in our hope to steward well what we’ve been given. 
Motivation just isn’t enough. 
So, shake off the pressure. Just get up and move. Use your hands, your feet, your arms. Just do something. A little everyday. Your body was made to do things far greater than just looking good.

  • THANKFUL 💫 • As bright, bubbly and full of life as I am this man helped me through one of the darkest times of my life. Yes, a lot of you know me as a business professional 24/7, but I’m a living human who has a personal life. Reading “The Dear Queen Journey” + “Dear Soul, love after pain” saved my whole soul. I’ve been restored & I’m breathing in much fresher air. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
[my story will be heard soon, & so many of you have had my back...]⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀

In 2017 I attended his event #artandlovetour & now in 2019 I had the opportunity to photograph #freeyourenergytour here in LA. This day was truly unforgettable. 6.22.19 💛✨ // @sylvestermcnutt

  • You know those times someone delivers a certain message that just slams you to your core? The same message you’ve heard a dozen other times and face palmed because you knew it was directly for you? But then you hear it AGAIN and it’s like it brand new? Yeaaahhhh... me too.
.
There I was, exhausted from spreading myself extremely thin with work these last few weeks, and ushering at the Kingdom Culture Conference tonight at #Bethel, with eyes that felt like sandpaper and an aching body that was groaning while I stood on my feet... and @brevived is up there doing what he does best - killing the room with his ability to be a 5 year old and the wisest man on the planet all at the same time - and then that line comes out of his mouth.. and in all my exhaustion and almost deliriousness, there was that all-too-familiar “click”.
.
I’ve lived in survival mode for so long that it’s become my norm. My reality. A lifetime of having to make everything happen on my own or it wasn’t going to happen. Great life skill to obtain if your aim is to be self sufficient... hardest one to break when your goal is trust and surrender. I’ve at least gotten to the point where I’ve learned to BRING all the things to Jesus, but there are moments where I can step back and realize I didn’t let Him keep them. I didn’t let Him walk me through it. There was no partnership. It was all striving... it was all ME.
.
Point is? You do it alone, you maintain it alone. But what if you didn’t have to? .
.
I’m so thankful for so many things about God’s nature. A few of those things are that He knows I’m human and He has grace for me. That He celebrates my progress, and (while He face palms) He’s proud of me anyway. That the life I’ve lived thus far isn’t the life I’m doomed to continue. That even though I’ve never had a human to do things for me and take things off my plate, He really wants to and He’s going to figure out how to help me really understand and believe that... it’s only a matter of time, and 36 isn’t too old to be taught. That I’m never alone, no matter how much it feels that way. My feelings don’t dictate reality, His word does.

  • It’s so easy for me to feel overwhelmed and afraid, in this crazy world that we live in. .
But once I get back into God’s Word, I am reminded that He loves me, that He cares and that He is in control. 💜

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. 
I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

  • Never in a million years would I have every thought I’d be brave enough to be a part of Arbonne. I’ve always struggled terribly with self-love and confidence and had my own version of what it meant to be “healthy.” The person in the mirror was never who I wanted it to be and I always felt there was something wrong with the reflection I saw. Joining Arbonne has been a huge leap of faith in not only the company and the beautiful founding principles it has been built upon, but also in that woman staring back at me. It’s time I stand up for her and not allow doubt and fear to cloud my sense of self any longer. It’s time I cleanse inside and outside of any toxicity and face my fears head on. I’m ready and I am so happy to be here to help any one else who wants to embark on not only a healthier outside, but allowing acceptance to shine brightly from the inside too!🌱 #arbonne30daystohealthyliving #arbonneconsultant #ShakeMyBonneBon #selflove #letgoofhate #vegan #allergyfriendly #livealifeyoulove #momboss  #faithoverfear

  • Stay focused on creating the life of your dreams. Keep your heart open to opportunities that make you uncomfortable. Nothing magical comes from staying in our comfort zone! Dream of having the flexibility and abundance to travel the world? Stay home with your babies? To live without the pressure to work in a field that no longer energizes you? To stay in a job you love but have a passion-project like Arbonne that feeds your soul and also funds your dreams and security for your family? This is my “why”. From a young age I have practiced manifestation to overcome obstacles and redirect my life. Nothing came easily, but establishing a vision is so important because what you think about..you bring about. Encouraging others to become healthy and to also create abundance in my life is why I committed to “do Arbonne”. This is only the beginning, and this is where my commitment and consistency will bring me to the top of this business. I hope you’ll join me and come along for the ride. ❤️ message me if you’d like to chat further about this opportunity.

  • Change .
.
Can be beautiful and scary at the same time. You can be hurting and wondering what tomorrow will bring , but you can also be healing and happy.  Sometimes it’s best not to question why you’re feeling this why, but instead experience all the emotion change will bring. Change can be a beautiful but scary process.

  • Did we mention that we have a guest worship leader joining the team this year?! Since @taylorbarber27 & @amanda_cheeley are going to be in full baby bump mode we need someone able to dance around with you girls! @destinynicolemcdonald is just the girl! She’s a part of the @summitsoundslive team! We love her, & we think you will too! 🤗Learn more about her below:
•••
Destiny is the Worship Director of @summitcrestview . She became a part of The Summit when she was 17 years old and was radically transformed into a life of joy, worship, and consecration unto God. To this day, Destiny’s heart is to raise up worshippers who carry pure hearts and the single agenda of Holy Spirit having His way. She has faith that when authentic, vertical, throne-room worship is released, we are able to step into an open heaven where people can receive healing, deliverance, salvation, joy, freedom, and the Spirit of the Living God. Her desire is that God would raise up a generation of fearless worshipers that believe what they sing, consecrate their lives to be Holy unto Him, and encounter Him face-to-face. In 2016 Destiny married her husband, @dariusmcdonald , who serves as the Student Ministries Pastor of @summitcrestview . The two of them have given their lives to see the young generations live in constant devotion with Yahweh, and be rooted and grounded in their identity in Christ.

She has faith that when authentic, vertical, throne-room worship is released, we are able to step into an open heaven where people can receive healing, deliverance, salvation, joy, freedom, and the Spirit of the Living God. Her desire is that God would raise up a generation of fearless worshipers that believe what they sing, consecrate their lives to be Holy unto Him, and encounter Him face-to-face. In 2016 Destiny married her husband, @dariusmcdonald , who serves as the Student Ministries Pastor of @summitcrestview . The two of them have given their lives to see the young generations live in constant devotion with Yahweh, and be rooted and grounded in their identity in Christ.

  • P•r•a•I•s•e•R•e•p•o•r•t• Day 4 What a day yesterday!! The kids and I bust out of the house again. This time we cruised all over. Ran through the drive through at Panera and then we went to... Walmart! 🤪 After Walmart, we stopped and dropped off “Welcome to Idaho” goodies to the Alano ladies and met the darling Baby Lucas!!! 💙 We also went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and Target!!’ That was enough stores for the day! For supper, I made homemade lasagna as well. It was a full day. After that, the symptoms started to rise again but having friends pulling for me and encouraging me, God brought me through once again! So many victories in one day!! #blakesleyfamilyadventures2k19 #faithoverfear #fightback #godisonthemove #confessionispossession  #holdonmandie

  • Summer is here!! .

Crazy how we can stay so focused on our goals and workouts and nutrition and by the time Memorial Day gets here - the best laid plans start to go out the window! .

I don’t want this to be me!! I bet you don’t either!! .

Creating those better habits NOW will help fight the feeling of tight pants, mad at me feelings for eating all the things, and will banish the “who needs to work out today” excuses. .

Is it 💯% perfect and fail safe - no! But what I do know - I have my workouts at my finger tips - and I take my nutrition know-how with me wherever I go! .

I can’t think of a better way to sail into summer!! .

So - bring on the weekend trips - the bbqs - and the get togethers - I GOT THIS!! .

So can you - just ask me how!

  • My heart is full from attending the funeral of a faithful woman. Her life wasn’t spectacular. She wasn’t known widely outside her church, neighbors, and friends. But she loved Jesus, her seven children, and her twenty-five grandchildren. She laughed easily, served generously, and could hit a softball a long way.

Ecclesiastes says, “It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting” (7:2). “The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning” because there we learn what matters most (7:4). New York Times columnist David Brooks says there are two kinds of virtues: those that look good on a résumé and those you want said at your funeral. Sometimes these overlap, though often they seem to compete. When in doubt, always choose the eulogy virtues.

The woman in the casket didn’t have a résumé, but her children testified that “she rocked Proverbs 31” and its description of a godly woman. She inspired them to love Jesus and care for others. As Paul said, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1), so they challenged us to imitate their mother’s life as she imitated Jesus.

What will be said at your funeral? What do you want said? It’s not too late to develop eulogy virtues. Rest in Jesus. His salvation frees us to live for what matters most. From odb.org 📷 @ryanresatka

  • Do you ever feel like their is a heavy weight on your chest before a test? I do, with every single one, big or small. Feeling completely overwhelmed, scared, and mostly, afraid of failure. Test anxiety is real and can really take a toll on your body. Your heart (and mind) are going 90 to nothing, your shaking, everything you have studied starts to escape, and you feel like you have no control. BUT, as soon as it’s over, that heavy weight is lifted and you can breathe again. If you have ever felt like this, you are NOT alone, I have struggled with it and continue to. Anytime I start feel it come on, I rebuke it in the name of JESUS! It will NOT affect me, it will NOT put me down, & I WILL overcome it! .

Test anxiety is our mind telling us a lie and it will not win anymore. You and I CAN do this!!

  • A Rule for Health and Growth.
•
A "rule" is used for measuring by a set of standards. A "Rule of Life" describes a set of practices by which we can measure and ensure growth and stability in life. I've lived with my own personal rule in life for over a year now, and it's transformed the way I live and structure my life. •
A Pastoral Rule for Today is a necessary return to the core practices that found and stabilize a pastor amidst the ever-growing demands of ministry. Every pastor should have a rule to live by that includes community, prayer, devotional and scholarly reading of Scripture, intellectually pursuing theology. Organizing and structuring life with these as the foundation will ensure health and growth.
•
This book details 7 different aspects of a Pastoral Rule, founded within the life and practice of numerous Church Theologians and Pastors: Augustine, Calvin, Newman, Bonhoeffer, Benedict, Wesley, and Gregory the Great. Each chapter draws on their writings, life, and theology to show the importance of each specific practice. There's a lot of good in this book, and if you've never written a rule for yourself this is a good place to start. On the whole, it's spectacular. In the detail, I found each chapter to be a bit long and overdrawn by the historical/biographical narratives (the concepts for each rule are relatively simple, and there seemed to be more words than necessary to accomplish each chapter).
•
If you're a pastor, check this book out. If you're not a pastor, you'll still find a ton of insight and resource in this book.
