After lots of research, I decided that natural birth was the right way for me to go! These are the reasons why I chose this birth plan.
Defining Natural Birth As noted, we will be discussing Natural Birth this month. To make these conversations easier, let's define Natural Birth by first explaining what it is NOT. ✗ Hospital Birth We are not going to consider hospital birth as natural birth, although you can have natural birth at a hospital. Most hospital deliveries … Continue reading What is “Natural Birth?”
I’ve found that although I love writing, I am very much a verbal processor. Which means that talking out loud and communicating externally is a big part of understanding thoughts whether they be my own or others. Think of the question, “are you hearing yourself right now?” As part of this revelation, I have tried … Continue reading Rebranding My Blog

I’ve been needing this message. Funny that in two weeks, this post’ll be year old.
Time, patterns, patience!
Enjoy this today, be blessed!
Just a friendly reminder to be patient:
To be patient with those around you.
They will get there.
To be patient with yourself.
You will get there.
To be patient with God?
Wait on God.
Be His servant–a server–a waiter who does what is asked when it is asked.
Patience is preparation.
Patience is understanding.
Patience is savoring life.
Patience is the virtue most forgotten.
Patience, my friend.

I celebrate independence in all its forms. I respect the spirit that breaks chains. And I am free to do what I love! Like cook! Chilli is an American staple...
"Free Falling!" Haha, the song is stuck in my head. I deleted 100 drafts yesterday. Yes, 100 potential blog posts. 100 pieces of drafted ideas, brainstorms, or entire essays in the trash later and I feel so free! There is something very satisfying about getting rid of things you worked on, especially when they just … Continue reading and I’m FREEEE…

Titus 3:1-8 (NIV), emphasis mine:
Saved in Order to Do Good
Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.
3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,5
