Four years ago a dear friend asked if I wanted to have a table at a little home market she was hostessing. I said, “Selling what?” And she said, “Those hand lettered verses and signs you’ve been making!” I had just started learning and was playing at it. I remember thinking People won’t want to buy those! But her suggestion gave me confidence, and I tried it. I only had a handful of art print designs, and I made a few pallet signs (That wasn’t for me - I didn’t do it for long). The market tonight is an offshoot if that first one. You never know when your words are going to make an impact on someone’s life! Choose your words carefully. Thank you @ashbrownjones for encouraging me along the way! - To all the makers doing craft shows and markets this season, you’re putting yourself out there, taking a risk, and you should be proud of that. God bless you and multiply your efforts!
The average human spends over 8 months of their life waiting.... - And I think we spend way more time waiting for the right time. If I waited for the right time to have kids I would have no kids. (Thank God for margs or I wouldn't have any kids🤣😁) - When it comes to your health and living your best life...the time is NOW. Don't wait for Monday or the 1st of the month or after the holidays or the New Year. Start today. Because here is a little gift from me to you- you can start your journey and still enjoy the holidays. You're welcome. - Take that step today and check out my Bootcamp Sneakpeak.

Day 12 of #100daysofgraceandgratitude. His greatness. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore, my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song. Psalm 28:7.
❄️Friend, there’s a time a place for constructive criticism. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are times where people will say things about you, even from an ugly place, that can still have strands of truth in it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And those times require you to sit with Christ and allow Him to show you the truth within the hurtful words and how to change it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🗯️However, what I want to focus on today are the times where people say things about you that aren’t true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They’re saying it out of a heart of bitterness, jealousy, or immaturity. Or they’re saying it from an incorrect perception or judgment of you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s hard to hear comments others make about you and not wonder if there is truth to it. It’s easy to allow their words to automatically be truth while struggling to accept the truth of who Christ says you are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❔Do you know exactly what Christ says about you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Click the LINK IN BIO to read just a snippet of who Christ says you are and how to handle the hurtful words of others.
Day 15// trust. Thank you Lord that you are forever faithful and entirely trustworthy. When humans or life is not, you are true and loving. You are faithful to your promises and Word. Help me know those promises better to know what you do say you will give and what you withhold and what you say you will provide to and for me, for all humankind. I am grateful daily for #if_gratitudedocumented and for making the time to prepare my heart, express my gratitude and hear from Him. It's priceless. #100daysofgraceandgratitude#if_graceandgratitude #liveyourfaith#dayspring#pnwbiblejournaling
I signed my first book contract today with @dayspringcards !! 🙌🏼🎉✍🏻 📝 This is seriously a dream come true and I wanted to make sure I soaked in the moment so I sat down to pray before I signed with my hot pink sharpie (of course)! Cue ALL the grateful/happy tears! 😭 I looked up from signing and I had this quick pang of sadness that I didn’t wait for Chris or someone else to share this moment with me.... and then at that very moment my sweet Vance was walking towards me with a giant fistful of confetti! 😭🎉 I literally throw confetti at All She Wrote Notes during all the happy moments and THIS will go down as the happiest of them all. One of my favorite moments ever! SO blessed and grateful for this amazing opportunity. Praying this book will bless SO many people and encourage them to toss a little more confetti in their life! To God Be the Glory! ✍🏻📝🎉🙌🏼💖 #mompreneur#happyhandlettering#dayspring#author#allshewrotenotes#bestdayever#liveyourfaith
