This shoe is so beautiful and exceptionally durable! You'll wear and pass down to the younger generations😂. .
I particularly love the fact that the bandage on the upper part will keep your leg firm while you move around😘
I have always try to be as transparent and raw as possible wether it’s sharing great news or not so great news.
We lost the baby almost @ 7 weeks.😢
I started loving my little peanut the moment we found out. Immediately we started to envision our future with the expectation of this new life. We were ready to surprise my mom on her birthday and start the journey.
But from one day to the next, it was gone😭Experiencing a miscarriage is superrrr hard!! I have felt an empty void for weeks. It has been a rollercoaster of emotions but God has been preparing me for this moment and I will keep pushing along with other women in which I didn’t realize how common this was until it happened to me.
From the ashes of defeat the resurrected King, is resurrecting me and in the midst of pain, we know there's hope. We are still grieving and although I think about my baby everyday, this new path I’m walking on is lighter.
There aren’t enough minutes in the day to express out the ways in which Jesus has blessed my life and heart throughout the years. He has always been there, holding me up. For that, I am eternally grateful.
We are hugging Xavier extra tight. 🤗 He has also helped us throughout the entire process and he doesn’t even know it.🙏 I chose to believe whenever God says it’s time again, it will be his plan.
I’m healing and smiling again. Thanks to everyone who have reached out and have supported us. We love you! I hope that families who have suffered pregnancy loss know that you have not failed. You don’t have to suffer all alone. Never lose hope and faith. God is always in control 🙏🏻

Learning to stop and #bestill . Embrace the small moments *
I struggle with anxiety, and with MY anxiety my brain is constantly on overdrive. Thinking what others are think about me, did I effect their thinking? Did I offend them, what should I do to fix it? When in reality it’s all in my head. Nothing and no one was offended, hurt or even question what I had said. *
MY anxiety is overwhelming, even just packing bags for a weekend trip.... did I pack everything, what did I forget and how will that effect our weekend.. ? While I sit there and think of every possible outcome... stressing on the what if’s, rather than thinking of all the smiles and laughters that we can soak in. *
Most days I hate who I am, I hate my anxiety and how I react with it. I hate the way I look, constantly comparing myself to others, feeling worthless and not good enough. Why? Why do I do this to myself? I am loved and I am different from everyone else for a reason. I’m not supposed to be like anyone but ME! *
Everyday is a constant internal battle. Most days I can overcome that battle but there is day(s) is struggle greatly. Unfortunately the love ones around me are effected. With my crying spells, or my moods, or the days where I’m crippled with depression and don’t want to do a single thing other than sleep. *
These are the days where I need to sit still, and write down my thoughts and remind myself that I am not in control, but God is. It’s time to give it all over to him. And pray my worries away. Because in the end, none of my anxiety will matter, but the moment I chose embrace the love around me and accept who I am, a child of God, a wife, and a mom. Embrace my flaws and count them as what makes me, me ❤️ *
I pray for whoever struggles like I do, to keep pushing forward, take that moment to breathe in the life and breathe out your insecurities. You are wonderfully made and you are perfectly imperfect ❤️ God bless
Today was a day long time coming for me. (Long post FYI)
I was told last October that my running days would be over and that I would have to have 2 major surgeries (anyone who follows Tiger Woods, it’s the same surgery he had) to decompress a nerve that was almost completely compressed along with a hand full of other issues going on. I was NOT ready for this, I had just stopped working and waiting for my husband to stop so we could travel while we were young and in good health.
I went into a depression that is hard to describe. Something that had been part of my life for 20+ years had been taken away. I know those who don’t run don’t/can’t understand, but it was a punch in the gut for myself.
After surgery Dr Crawford told my husband that I “may” be able to run since my bones were really strong! At my 6 week follow up I asked about it and he said just be patient and we will see at my 12 week follow up. At that appointment he said I was doing great, no PT needed and I could ease back into my normal life RUNNING INCLUDED!!! His assistant said she’s never seen anyone so happy to run. 😂😂
I waited another 2 weeks to get my nerve up to attempt a run, I was petrified I would mess up the surgery. It felt so odd, I can feel the plates in my lower back, a sensation I have most of the time but I’m learning to live with it.
So today I went out and completed a 4 mile run. I felt good, the back felt good, my hamstrings on the other hand are so crazy tight.... but it’s fine. It was almost 6 months of nothing but waking and elliptical so it’ll take time...
Y’all I’m stoked!!!! #running#runningmotivation#lumbarfusion#2levelfusion#gettingmymojoback#emptynesters#emptynest#earlyretirement#godsplannotmine#godisincontrol

I’m not going to force the promises of God to happen. If God can make the promise, then He’s definitely God enough to fulfill the promise WITHOUT my help. Sometimes we get in the way and try to takeover God’s job by doing unnecessary things that God isn’t wanting us to do. That can look different for everyone. For me it looks like — saying yes to everyone to make sure they’re happy with me to get a lil pat on the back and even sending a text that’s not needed. I’ve learned that God does NOT need my help so it’s best that I #fallback and let him stay in control. Yep. God you can have your job back. Do you know how much time you waste by stepping in trying to control the timing of your promises? #Trust#TrustGod#Promises#GodPromisesNeverFail#Faithful#Consistent#HeNeverLoses#Winner#GodIsInControl#HisWayIsBetter#iChooseFaith#iLoveGod#DOPE#Inspiration
I've been making music since I was nine years old and when I wasn't being successful at it, I started to question why God made me. But through the fire and the failure, He showed me that He created me for so much more. That above all else I am a child of God, and He wants me to be Christ-like, love others, and tell people about His love. He’s been with me through all of it, and I always want to be this excited to tell people about how awesome God is!

Hey everyone hope everybody had a great weekend! Last week I was talking about how important it is to have a dream and a purpose. In order to start on the path to living that out, you have to have a vision for your life. One of my favorite books that helped me craft my vision is “Act Like Success, Think Like a Success by @iamsteveharveytv. It takes you step by step through the process of creating a vision and goals for your life. Check it out and I’ll talk to you tomorrow!
Had to take a break to #playwithkids — well, the littlest, anyway!! Here’s the deal: my mind is full of spinning ideas and unwarranted worry... praying for the health and safety of someone REALLY important to me. #godisincontrol #Bestsolution This kid helps me smile when I feel like crying. Asks if I need a kiss and snuggles hard!! #muchneededbreak

Morning Blessing: Here’s what’s true: If the devil can get you to doubt God’s provision, you’ll grab for yourself and miss the wonder of God’s goodness. If the devil can get you to doubt your worth, you’ll strive to prove yourself and miss the gift of God’s assurance and rest. If the devil can get you to doubt God’s timing, you’ll rush ahead and miss the wisdom of His ways. We grow deep and wise when we trust God fully. And yet, and yet, if we miss Him and we mess up, we can know that a plan is already in motion to redeem our story. We won’t get it right all of the time. But praise God; Jesus will never get it wrong on our behalf. We can trust Him. Rest tonight knowing that God is on your side. He guards and He guides. He’ll always provide. He sees you. He loves you. You can trust Him. #SusieLarsonBlessings#goodmorning#monday#god#jesus#jesusisthetruth#lord#bible#christian#faith#godisincontrol#thankyougod
So I’m deep in this 1 King’s study that Courtney over at @womenlivingwell created and I love using the SOAK method so I thought I would share with you what mine looks like today so you can see why it’s such an effective and simple way to study the Bible!! 🤓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
S- scripture O- observation A- application K- kneel in prayer ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
S-“He walked in all the ways of Jeroboam the son of Nebat and in his sin, which he made Israel commit, provoking the LORD God of Israel, [to anger] with their idols.”
1 KINGS 16:26
O-Following in someone else’s sin can have dire consequences! Breaking generational curses comes to mind and how important it is that we DO for future generations!! Someone MUST rise up and break the cycle!
A- I have broken several generational curses. Are they any others I am missing?
K- Dear Lord,
Thank you for helping me to recognize generational curses and for placing the desire for me to break them in me at an early age. I pray that they are never again an issue for any future generations in my family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Jesus Name,
Feel free to join in!! Have you tried this method before?
This week is National Infertility Awareness Week. It's a week all about raising awareness to the fact that there are so many - too many - families struggling with infertility. Many of these families are struggling to afford to build their family through medical intervention or adoption. Many of these families are making decisions they never dreamed, without much of a support system.
Dan and I have been trying to build our family for 10 years. Some of those years were full of invasive medical tests and procedures, shots and medications that made me crazy. Some have been full of us questioning if we are making the right choices and wondering if our day would ever come. We have had scary diagnosis spoken over us and hurtful comments spoken to us. We have experienced the darkest of days and we have felt defeated. We have lost babies and we have cried many tears. SO MANY TEARS. •
I spent much of the past 10 years letting infertility tell me who I am and who my God is. I allowed it to make me feel less than. I have listened to and believed so many lies.
If I am being completely honest, I was frustrated that the first day of National Infertility Awareness week fell on Easter. I think it is so important to share our stories, but I hate a day that should be filled with hope and celebration was clouded by infertility. It felt like another thing infertility has stolen. •
However, last night I realized something. Infertility has ripped my heart in two and left me feeling broken, however because Jesus went to the cross and rose again, my healing is already paid for. My heart can be whole because of who He is. The reality is, this battle is already won! Infertility is nothing compared to the greatness of our God. Easter reminds me I can face infertility with HOPE! •
Last year, during National Infertility Awareness week I wrote a blog about the lies Infertility has told me... and how God has showed up in the middle of those lies. This year, I have to share it again. I want to shout from the rooftops, infertility is not the end of the story. We don’t have to live defeated!!! Follow the link in my bio to read more!
Today is a new day!
It’s easy to get into the schedules and flow of everyday life and not make it special or extra ordinary. Schedules can be important and make days easier; however, they can make everyday dull and repetitive. One thing I say to my students is that every day is a new day! It’s a time to start over and try again, a chance to try something new or different, and also another opportunity to discover something new about someone or something. Every day will bring its own trials no matter how much or how hard you plan. Don’t worry about what tomorrow will hold. Enjoy today!
Take advantage of each day the memories you can make and opportunities you can take.
Whether busting out in song at work, saying hello to someone new, changing your routine up a little bit to have dinner as a family, or trying something that didn’t work yesterday take each day to make it special for you and those around you. Time flies! #todayisanewday#tryagain#schedule#maketodayspecial#dull#repetitive#trysomethingnew#godisincontrol#timeflies#flowers#changeitup#dontworryabouttomorrow#takeadvantage#bespontaneous#bookofmatthew#jesus#bibleverse

My name is Anthony Scott...aka @thehumanpanther83...I am a simple man with a great responsibility, which is helping people. Helping people unlock their true selves. That starts within the mind. This philosophy is placed within Bori. This is how I teach my students and this is what I want for all people. Accountability within the fabric...everyone being on the same accord toward mental strength as our bodies follow. I am not military, just a simple man who is military minded. Making an effort to leave no one behind and to leave no one out...there is a leader in all of us. It is my vision that everyone who wears the brand remembers these things✊🏾. #god
