Qualities to Look For Before Saying I Do

By most accounts, Brandon and I moved very quickly in our relationship. We actually married two days after he proposed and he proposed 7 months after we started dating. Whirlwind!

7 Self-Love Habits to Cultivate in Your Life

‘Self-Love’ was my word of the year for 2016 and I failed miserably. I had vowed to be less self-critical, more fearless with my heart, and more committed to self-care.

A Holiday Tradition For Couples That Give Back

We limit gifts to three (to represent the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh that were given by the three wise men) and then each choose an organization that we…

When God Says Rest

I’ve sat at my computer for the last 37 minutes, simply staring, watching the flashing cursor on my blank screen. I have no inspiration, nothing to share. There are no new products to rave about, no tutorials to teach, no inspired words of encouragement for your weary soul. Just…nothing. I’ve been laid up with a…
