Mine is telling me to read & write more and worry less. Much easier said than done!! But it’s all about practice. The path won’t be perfect, but if you return to your heart, it’ll all be okay 👌🏻 What does your heart tell you? ❤️ 📷: @commandinglife

I’m Yours💞 “Love me like I’m all yours, love me for me.”✨ AL🌺HA Warrior~💕 Finding self-love has been the most challenging, difficult and gut wrenchingly painful, lifelong endeavor for me personally. I have had repeated, devastating heart lessons to learn in my life. It is taken me a lifetime so far to get here, to get where I am. I am just fine being me. I am just fine being who I am, in this moment, in this in mind, in this body and forever grateful to have my Aloha Spirit. Sharing my intimate bathroom selfie, without any glam or pimping, because none of that is needed or required. Me and my cherished “Mermaid Pearls” are all that’s needed to allow my AL🌺HA Spirit to shine.✨ Do what you need to do to find your way back to your authentic self. That’s when your life will begin for you, or begin again. Be yours always, do not wait for someone to be YOU!! LOVE YOURSELF!! 🙌 TRUTH!! 💯💥 #selflove #lifelessons #loveyourself #beyourself #beyou #authentic #loveme #love #liveforlove #heartlessons #ibelieveinlove #bathroomselfie #nomakeup #real at Kalaheo, Hawaii

This month’s #heartfocus is #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness . Taking this month to love and encourage my fellow sisters of loss ❤️ . . If you have not lost a baby, or if kids aren’t even on your radar, this is still a wonderful discussion for you. Ultimately, it is about suffering in light of the gospel, the hard questions, and the beauty that comes from our broken. And we are all broken ... . . I hope you will join us, friends ❤️ . . #heartlessons #grief #suffering #loss

Morning! Layers, layers and evolution; I just love the process of painting. Not long ago (like, *really* not long ago🤪) I approached art with a cringe, fingers crossed and expecting a big disappointment. It wasn’t ever going to turn out “right” -or I hoped it would become what was in my head, but in the end it was...not that. I found some artists who inspired me to TRY. To experiment. To look at my art and say, “what’s going right” in a work, not focus on what wasn’t working. They inspired me to add paint. And keep adding paint. Love the textures. Build a dream on canvas. It has been liberating, knowing that each stroke is not a final sentence, but part of the process. And, MAN, do I love the process. My heart hope is that you find freedom in your work/play. To explore, build, try and live through it. What a gift it is to express with endless color, each work a boundless opportunity to live. #art #process #wip #artinprogress #painting #artist #acrylicpainting #life #heartlessons #artlessons #explore #georgetowntx #vibehigh #texas at Georgetown, Texas

Time to stop forcing myself to paint. I just don't feel it. I've been trying to push myself to paint for the wrong reasons for quite some time now. There's a resistance in me and it carries a message, like all feelings do. There's a deeper understanding sending signals, so I could really paint from my heart, from my soul, and also give more room for other important things. I decided to concentrate mostly on creating healing, intuitive art for myself, as well as doing some commissioned work. Soon I'm starting a piece that will be a very healing experience for the client, and for me. I can already feel it. Creativity can heal, open hearts. If I will paint something that I want to share on social media, it will be from the heart. I find instagram a great place to share creativity and my thoughts. I share them because it's healing for me to speak my mind as someone who has been living behind thick walls for years. It also offers possibilities to connect with people. So, if you have been following me because of my art, you might want to reconsider. 😉 For now on, there will be less focus on art. (But isn't life itself an art?) #thoughts #art #fromthesoul #heartlessons #whatisimportant #healingart #growth #soulspeaking #parantavataide #maalaaminen

My mom is an amazing gardener. You can literally bring her two tiny sticks with dehydrated leaves and by next week, she’ll bring you basketfuls of fresh tomatoes that she harvested from what you were convinced were old sprigs from last year’s Christmas tree. She doesn’t just have a green thumb. That stuff goes all the way up to her elbows! . . I did not inherit her gift of gardening. I have killed what they claimed to be unkillable. If plants are superman then I am definitely, definitely kryptonite. . . Not only do I lack the gift of a green thumb, I also don’t care. I hate dirt and bugs and sweat. Part of God’s curse to Adam after the fall was to curse the ground so Adam had to to work immensely hard in order to bring anything worthwhile from it. I’m just saying, I’d rather my hobbies not be so closely related to the curse of sin.😉 . . The plant in this picture is the only one in my house. My mom gave it to me because it is super low maintenance. It only occasionally needs some water. I can do that. . . The thing that I hate most about plants is that they require maintenance and attention. They require water and light and some of them even have to be dusted (I just ... I just can’t). Plants require work and I would rather dig into a giant bowl of ice cream and binge the Great British Baking Show than make sure one more thing in my life isn’t thirsty. . . Relationships require maintenance too. All relationships have been tainted with sin and require attention, sometimes sweat, sometimes dirt underneath fingernails. We need to pull weeds and water and move toward the light. We need to counter what sin so unfortunately sprinkled over all of us: selfish natures and blindness to our pride. . . But when that work makes us tired (and it does make us tired), may it always point us to the One who died so that one day all of our relationships will be made whole. As we dig our hands deep into the mud and toil with heart and soul, may we always breathe a sigh of thankfulness to Jesus who rescues and restores and will one day provide rest for every aspect of our lives, including our relationships.🌱

Loved getting the chance to talk to @deidrariggs about loving outside of our comfort zones. She said, “I do think comfort zone has to do with me, myself, and I. So the first step is probably to turn that upside down and think of others first.” . . . What a great conversation to finish out this month’s heart focus. A huge thanks to @deidrariggs for sharing her wisdom with us. ❤️ . . .

This little heart on my kitchen wall reminded me this morning to be gentle, kind and loving to myself. Yesterday was rough with parenting lessons and this morning I was struggling with how to start this new day. I think “be loving” is the mantra. Doesn’t mean be weak, but more like the quote, “let everything you do be done in love.” I needed this. 💕💗 Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday -best day of the week! 🌈🍂🍁😻 #bekind #parenting #heartlessons #love #morning

Last night, I recorded a conversation with @sarah_rieke for her #heartlessons podcast. We talked about love and comfort zones and other things. . Something I said and believe is that we cannot give love -- real love -- and stay in our comfort zones. We can receive love in our comfort zones but, to truly love, we've got to go through doors and over walls and across lines that make us uneasy, vulnerable, and exposed. . You can listen to the full conversation this Tuesday and, yes, #SashaFierce🐶 makes a sassy appearance.

Here is the truth: God CHOSE you. He did. He loved you so deeply and desired a relationship with you so much that He sent Jesus, like a valiant knight, to die for you, to save you. And His Spirit? It pursues you every day, whispering kindness and love and wooing you to draw near. . . . There may or may not be a romantic relationship in your life to provide comfort and validation and support, but I promise that no human can ever love to the same depths as the Father’s, all for you. ❤️ . . . #heartlessons #heartfocus #livingwithandlovingotherswell #girldefined #lovedefined @girldefined . . .

We make loving people a lot more complicated than Jesus did. Everytime I try to protect myself by telling somebody one of my opinions, God whispers to me and asks about my heart. Why are you so afraid? Who are you trying to impress? Am I really so insecure that I surround myself only with people who agree with me? When people are flat wrong, why do I appoint myself the sheriff to straighten them out? Burning down others’ opinions doesn’t make us right. It makes us arsonists. @bobgoff from #everybodyalways ❤️ . . . #livingwithandlovingotherswell #love #thisislove #heartlessons

We’re living in our city. We are members of our community. We’re occupying our lives in the lowest (and broadest) form possible. Because we can, and we want to, and we fully feel there is no shame in our game. This is the ‘job’ our kids have, and love. They collect every bottle and can they see. We ask for them from family and we store them up until the lack of space is bothersome enough. And then we let them all go in exchange for something else to save 💵, again. Purpose, full-circle. I wish I’d had more ‘real life’ teaching when I was young. I would’ve been more wise earlier on, if only I knew. Alas, we are here now, and I get the honor of teaching my kids how to take advantage of their world and make it all work for them. • It does my heart a world of good that they can hardly contain their excitement on recycle day. My 7-year-old wrapped her arms around me, squeezing me tight, while in line and exclaimed, ‘We’re gonna be RICH!’ 💰🙌🏼😂 • Be still my heart 💗 . . . . . #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmama #homeschoolreallife #reallife #teachthemyoung #teachthemright #ochomeschool #homeschoollove #heartlessons #homeschooltheheart #homeschoolworkethic #dowhatyoucan #dowhatittakes #dreambigworkhard

When you let yourself love, you let parts of you die. Or you aren’t really loving. You must let your false self be broken, parts of you that you only thought were necessary. You must embrace your union with Christ, bravely surrender and trust that what’s breaking and being lost is never the eternal, needed parts of you, but always the temporal, needless parts that were getting in the way of becoming real. @annvoskamp . . . #heartlessons #theheartlessonspodcast #love #livingwithandlovingotherswell #thisislove #truelove

After spending two days in training with heart rate monitors on, two of the top trainers in all of Switzerland gave two cardiac ICU nurses a fitness lesson on the heart❤️! We learned about the importance of increasing your heart rate and staying in the aceptable % for an optimal fitness range. We also learned how to warm up to increase the rate slowly, maintain it in the optimal range, and reduce it back to baseline with a cool down.

“Contentment comes when we see the immeasurable, incomparable beauty of each human.” -Kate Wills Wyma . . . It can be so easy to love those who are like us, to love those who seem easy to love. But if we saw each and every heart on earth how Jesus does - a soul worth His precious blood - maybe it would be easier to look past faults and annoyances and quirks. . . . Maybe if we saw every person as a soul with eternal value, we could know exactly what the Lord meant when He said we were all fearfully and wonderfully made.

How true. Sometimes we hold on so tightly to relationships, jobs, homes, possessions, and feelings that no longer serve us. Nature gives us a beautiful reminder every fall with the falling of the leaves that sometimes we have to let go in life to move to the next season. What is God inviting you to let go of today? What no longer serves you?

📸: @mmcohen (2013) . . This photo encapsulates process: messy, sweaty and pensive. Process requires surrender to the struggle. The struggle doesn’t have to end in pain, but there may be a bit of that happening in-between. I’ve known this and been willing to struggle openly in many areas of my life, but there are a few places that I wanted to remain untouched.

God does not want us to be perfect but to be real with Him. He wants our heart because it has all our motives, feelings, desires, will, thoughts, and intellect. He wants us to turn our heart towards Him because only then can we align it with His and be obedient.  He wants our obedience because in obeying we show our love for Him (1 John 5:3). .

Hey friends. So I’ve been thinking/praying about how to be more organized and purposeful with my online spaces and I’ve come up with this plan: a monthly heart focus. This way, you’ll know what to expect on all the spaces where you find me, and I am more pointed in the content to provide. I’m looking forward to it!! . . . For the month of September, we’ll focus on living with and loving others well. With so many new relationship dynamics this time of year - classrooms, roommates, classmates, fellow room parents, etc. - I thought it would be a good thing to focus on. . . . Some other changes? New logo/color scheme to keep things cohesive. My brain needs it lol . . . So follow along and invite a friend! Let’s explore what it means to live with and love others well. . . . #heartlessons #heartfocus #livingwithandlovingotherswell ❤️

With so many new relationship dynamics at the start of the school year, for the month of September, the heart focus on the podcast will be: living with and loving others well. Kicking off this series is @yourenneagramcoach sharing her wisdom on the enneagram personality typing system. We chat about the enneagram, what it is, how we can use it to better understand ourselves and others, and how the gospel redeems the hardest parts of each type. I hope this episode inspires you to grow greater compassion, understanding, and appreciation for all the nine types!! . . . Thank you Beth!! Loved talking enneagram with you 😍❤️ . . .

Yesterday I had the privilege of doing my first ever “on location” podcast interview with Deb, the sweetest woman you will ever meet. She serves bereaved mamas in our local area through her Perinatal Bereavement RN position at the local hospital. She has also lost a precious baby, and she also loves Jesus. . . . We recorded an episode for the upcoming October PAIL (pregnancy and infant loss) podcast series. The hospital where she works? The same place I delivered both Evie and Charlie. I’m not gonna lie, my heart took a bit of an emotional turn when I saw Hoffheimer Hall, the place where I had all my dreadful appointments, and the main entrance/exit, where I climbed into the car, freshly postpartum, with no baby. I didn’t cry, but my the deepest corners of my soul remembered. . . . It was strange but, at the same time, really beautiful. The same place where my heart broke is the same place I returned to in order to provide resources for healing for other mamas with broken hearts. Isn’t that kind of, circle of life - like? To me, it was really beautiful. Broken, and yet deeply beautiful. ❤️🕊 . . . #brokenbeautiful #evenbrokencanbebeautiful #pregnancyandinfantloss #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #theheartlessonspodcast #carryingtoterm #heartlessons #infantloss #grief #bereavedmother #payitforward

Is it too late for #fridayintroductions ?? . . When I was a kid I wanted to grow up to be a pediatrician. I had plans to have the BEST prize box in the area. We’re talking Barbie dolls, people. I also wanted my license plate to read: KIDSDOC. That was my plan. And then I realized how long doctors have to go to school. . . I thought maybe I’d be a teacher, maybe a school counselor. Something kid-related. Earned a BS in Psychology/Child Development, but mostly just wanted to marry @joshrieke and have a family and be a full-time SAHM. And I did and we did. It was my dream come true. . . In 2012 and then again in 2015 (2nd and 4th babies), we lost babies to fatal conditions the doctors told us about at the 20-week ultrasounds. After both Evie and Charlie passed away, the Lord stirred in my heart that maybe He had a different purpose than solely my role as a SAHM. . . Today I write from that place of loss but mostly of the hope of Heaven that helped me survive. I also host the Heart Lessons Podcast, an interview-style show where women share what God is doing in their lives. I aspire to write a book one day. I feel honored that the Lord entrusted these things to me and find redemption in the fact that my precious losses unlocked these gifts and passions in me. . . I am still a SAHM and I love it immensely. But I am also so thankful for my passion projects/ministries/dream/goals. Life is good and God is faithful. Ice cream helps. ❤️🍦 . . #theheartlessonspodcast #heartlessons #sarahrieke #infantloss #grief #loss #suffering #carryingtoterm #christianpodcast #christianpodcaster #reallife #realfaith #strongwomen

Who is God? What is the nature of His loving heart? . . God is not a God of disorder, but a God of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:33 . . God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5 . . God is love 1 John 4:16 . . The Lord is a shield around me, my glory, the lifter of my head. Psalm 3:3 . . Our God is this and so much more. See my stories for three great resources to help you rest in the joy of what God is, and discover more of the greatness of His loving heart ❤️ . . . #heartlessons #theheartlessonspodcast #truth #scripture #restingodspromises #godislove #shereadstruth

On Tuesday’s episode of the Heart Lessons Podcast, @autumnmiles shared how the Lord brought her or of an abusive relationship. She was broken and bruised and convinced God could not use her. And yet ... . . . Today she is an author, radio show host, an all-around passionate voice for bold truth and raw faith. What was once her greatest shame and the weak part of her story has been transformed. Praise God who, everyday, is in the business of making all things new. ❤️ . . .

Yesterday this big cheese had a doctor’s appointment and she had to get a shot. We talked about being brave and cooperating and she was on board with getting a treat after it was all done. When the moment came, she freaked out a little, but was still very brave and very cooperative. . . . On the way home she said, “Mommy, I’m sorry I cried.” I spun around in my seat and said, “Oh baby, it’s ok to cry. You were still so very brave and so very good. Sometimes being brave and having tears just go together.” . . . Friend, sometimes bravery and tears go together. The two are not mutually exclusive ❤️ . . . #heartlessons #bravery #100daystobrave #momlife #intentionalparenting #lifelessons #strongwomen

Here’s to having the courage to re-arrange priorities, to re-align our focus and to remember what we’re here for. To lay down mirrors and shallow pursuits. To go deeper.. The call is so much bigger and more beautiful, dangerous and impactful than we can imagine. There is freedom beyond the confines of a self-focussed life.. There is nothing wrong with the pursuit of wholeness (it’s important) but it is always with a purpose beyond itself. It is always for overflow. So we can love deeply and fiercely and invest bravely into the purposes for which we exist. Looking beyond ourselves may feel like burying a seed, a kind of dying even- But in giving ourselves to the call, strangely we find ourselves- most whole, deeply loved, empowered and living an adventure of the greatest magnitude. #heartlessons #alifepouredout #sometimesgrowthlookslikedying

My sweet son chatted on the podcast with me this week. Several times throughout our conversation he mentioned how you can talk to the Lord anytime, about anything, especially if you are sad. Our Heavenly Father cares about whatever is in our hearts. Bring your requests, cares, and concerns right to His throne. • • • Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them falls to the ground without the Father knowing . . . so don’t be afraid, you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31 ❤️ . . .

Today we learned about the titan arum, a pretty cool flower also know as the “corpse” flower. The corpse flower grows in Indonesia and is one of the world’s largest and rarest flowers. Though it is a pretty flower, it is known for the rotten, foul odor it gives off to attract insects for pollination. Basically, the corpse flower is the hypocrite of the plant world: the inside and outside don’t match. Does anyone else struggle with being a corpse flower at times, showing beauty on the outside but then emitting a foul odor from the inside, or when no one is watching? While this was a great heart lesson for my children, it was also a reminder for me. How often have my words been more harsh or critical when at home, in the confines of my own walls? May we strive for our words and actions to be loving, whether anyone is watching or not. ❤️ *cool time lapse video of a blooming titan arum at the Chicago Botanic Gardens in comments*

The truest miracle of my life. I have no words, only tears and a heart brimming with gratitude of how true this has been for me. All praise and honor and glory to the Lord who is forever, eternal, the unseen One, working goodness when I didn’t even know it. ❤️ @kathleenfucci #kathleenfucci #kathleenfucciministries #heartlessons #theheartlessonspodcast #thisisthegospel #redeemed #brokenbeautiful #grief #suffering #loss #bereavedmother #infantloss

Facing some crazy business with humility and an open heart has left me feeling light, flirty, and fun. Last night, started with heads hanging low and ended with the smell of the salty sea, instant friends from around the world, heartfelt words, reminders that I also have Puerto Rican roots, and growing sense of soul power to rise, rise, and rise with every crashing wave until the sea itself meets the sky! #puertorico #sanjuan #miami #sassy #empowered #expansion #heartlessons #growth #service #joy #love #100natural #madebynature #female

Regrann from @sarah_rieke - There are souls everywhere in need of Jesus. Some people’s fields of service look like remote jungles and learning a new language. Another’s field of service might look more like a board room or NICU floor or ringing up customers at a register. Wherever God has you, that is where you can serve. You don’t have to wait until you feel more qualified or your location looks more churchy. Open your eyes and your heart to the ones the Lord has placed in arm’s reach. ❤️ #heartlessons #theheartlessonspodcast #amyparkerbooks @amyparkerbooks • • • ps ... don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win Amy’s new book!! - #regrann

Morning fog. As soon as my dad sent me this photo from our land that my husband & I want to build on one day, all I could think of is “His mercies are new every morning”. Oh how I’m so thankful for this truth. How I need it every morning (sometimes every hour). . Tonight at bedtime it was definitely not as peaceful as this photo. Voices were raised and lack of listening (both kids and me 🤦🏼‍♀️). At one point my daughter was crying and blaming herself for all of it. It was heartbreaking to see her being so hard on herself. And boy did it remind me of ME 😩. I stopped everything and went and got the book “The Garden, the Curtain and the Cross”. The reminder in this book of what Jesus did for us so we could have an open relationship with our Creator was just what we needed to reset. . We were also able to talk about our sin, how the Holy Spirit will convict us and that when we ask for forgiveness, He does! He already did. We can live in the amazing freedom of Christ. We have played a game since E was little where I ask her “What happens after we ask for forgiveness?” She will reply “Poof!! It’s gone” . Boy did it change bedtime! It wasn’t easy but taking the time to stop my mindset of just disciplining a specific issue, to look at the heart of what was happening and use it as a teaching moment was definitely something I won’t forget. I’m so thankful for how God worked through all of us despite our shortcomings. And what a sweet moment at the end snuggling with my babies and listening to my 5 year old talk about why she loves God. . So tomorrow is a new day. A gift from God. And an opportunity to grow closer to Him and each other. For that I am thankful! . #thetransformedmama #hismerciesareneweverymorning #ourland #virginia #morning #trustinHim #trustingod #forgiveness #jesus #thankyougod🙏 #lesson #bedtimeroutine #stayathomemom #momlife #bedtimestruggles #heartlessons #faith #loveofjesus #jesuslovesme #bible
