I am thankful for so much.

I am blessed to have a wonderful man who loves me and made me his wife.

I have children who bring me joy.

I have friends who keep me grounded.

I have not just a house to live in but a home to grow with my family by my side.

I  have a pastor and a church that keep me focused living every day in the Word.

Most importantly, I am thankful that I have a Savior who loves me so much, that He gave His earthly life so that just by accepting His love and sacrifice I can live my life by His side for eternity.

I am forever thankful to be so abundantly blessed.

Shop Small this Christmas

Let’s be sure to remember that Jesus is the reason for this season!! Let’s be sure that we proclaim His name and our faith in our amazing Savior this Christmas!! What an awesome way to share the goodness of God by just wearing a hoodie or drinking some coffee out with the neighbors. Best of all, share these with others this year! Just remember TT&Twins is liquidating this month, so buy right away because your print may be retired after November. Click HERE  to view their items.



This is one of my favorite bath and body companies!! You can find them on etsy. They are based out of the Arizona area and this helps support their ministry! The coffee scrub is my FAVORITE!! I love the lip balms too!! Click HERE to go to Cactus  Flower Naturals etsy shop.


This is their other shop Soul Blind Designs also on etsy. Every item is made by hand with love. These would make amazing gifts to share as well :) Click HERE to check out their etsy shop.



I love the chocolate fresh water pearls!!

These are 3 of my favorite small Christian small businesses/ministries. I love to support them and what they stand for. I love that I can get to a personal level with these shop owners by shopping small. I love sharing their creativity and love with others too.

Remember that when you shop small that often when they sell out, that item is gone sometimes forever. So if you see it, buy it!! Also you are giving CHRISTmas twice when you buy from a small business. Not only are you buying a gift for someone you love, but you are also helping them gift someone they love. I think that makes it even better!!

Support small businesses!! They are what keeps America going strong!!




Worship and praise

Copied with permission from Humbly Seeking God’s Wisdom: 

You will love this!!

Worship and Praise

I love to worship The Lord.

I love to be at church as our amazing worship team begins lifting their voices in praise. It is filled with such an energy. It is warm and calming. It is filled with emotion. The deep power behind the praise brings tears to my eyes some days…more often than not, as I feel that in a room filled with people who are in love with God, I am still here alone with Him in His glory. I am made whole with Him. I am so overwhelmed with the joy of His goodness and thankful for His grace in those moments, that the tears just stream from my eyes.

Have you ever felt it?  The Spirit of the Lord that just seems to fill the room as everyone pours out their hearts in song to Jesus. The congregation, one by one, raises their hands up as the love surrounds each soul. Doesn’t it just give you a strength you never knew you wanted or needed? It is incredible how that works. We are covered in the love of God. We must be glowing in the spirit! What a gift to give our King!

God loves to hear us worship Him.

We are in His presence when we worship and praise! Satan hates that. It is like a battle cry that he knows he cant beat.  Now the enemy is engaged in a war with us. He does not want us to be with God. True spiritual warfare has begun. Satan will try to attack with darkness every chance he has. Yet, every time we are in the mind set of searching for God’s heart, When we worship and pray, we are filled with light, His light. It shines through everything! It sticks too! With God there is always a brightness to protect His believers in the spiritual aspects.  Everything else is temporary. Following the light makes us a formidable target for the enemy’s evil schemes.

We are the militant church, us right now, the believers here on earth, we are the Christian soldiers. We are waging the good fight with our worship. When we praise and give God the glory, we are strengthening our armor of God! Amazing right? The Lord has told us so. It says in Ephesians 6:10-20

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

When we pray and worship it is eternal! It builds up our shields and armor! Our weapons are not carnal! No weapon created by man will every be able to break the bond that our God has with us! Our worship makes us stronger! The war between spiritual light and darkness is not of human powers. Our path for victory is to desire for God to be part of us and to give all glory to Him! For it says in the KJV 2 Corinthians 10:14 “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”

So WORSHIP my brothers and sisters in Christ! Praise His name at all times!! Keep the light of the Savior burning bright in your living being! May He shine brightly through you into others lives so that He may be known, loved and cherished by all! May your armor be bright and strong in this spiritual war for your soul! May every breath you breathe be filled with pure devotion for YWHW, the Lord Almighty!!

That is true worship and praise for a believer to the Everlasting King of all!

1 Timothy 1:18 NIV  Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well,

May our lives be lived out here on earth end like Timothy’s. When it is our time to enter the church triumphant,  those who have gone on before us, like Timothy, worship Him in heaven for all eternity! How incredibly fabulous!! He is always to be worshiped! He is always to be praised!! I can not wait!! Lord Jesus, may our hearts be professing this truth when our day is at hand:

2 Timothy 4:6 KJV

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Keep your shield of faith strong and your sword of the Word sharp my friend. Know the Bible. Study the Word daily. Praise Him in all you do. Worship, rest and may your light be His.

Good-Morning-Coffee-PinkToday is: Thursday, September 17, 2015

Going to make this a quick post today, got tons to get started on!! Whoo hoo!


Outside is: Just a little bit of light blue creeping up over the horizon with speckles of white fluffy clouds lingering in the sky.


I can smell:My diffuser is puffing out mists of Thieves essential oil, so I have a bit of a cinnamon scent here in my room.


In the oven for dinner: We are having tacos!! I love tacos!! I am using left over chicken and then I am making some fish tonight to have some delicious homemade tacos with pico de gallo,white beans for a side and as an appetizer guacamole and homemade chips!


What I have been thinking about: I just got my new MOPS table the other day. God is so amazing. We did a random draw to figure out which girls would go to which table. Our table is so perfect for each other!! Really, these girls are all grouped together by God. It is amazing to see how as they get to know each other a little bit, that you can see how they have been lined up to help each other already. I am just so blessed to be able to be there and witness the greatness of God  at work in these girls!! I pray that I will be the mentor that they need and the Lord will bless me with the wisdom that each of these precious young momma are looking for. May the Lord make me the Titus woman that I need to be this year.


The project I am working on: I am going to start making some baby items for a friend who is having her precious little girl next month! I have the fabric and the ideas, now I just have to get in there and sew them together!! Babies are such a blessing I am so excited!! Oh, I forgot, one of the girls from my old MOPS table is pregnant and I need to make her a gift too!!


Mood today: I am just craving Jesus today! As I am typing I have a sermon playing in the background.  I have heard it a few times now. Very insightful. I just love hearing about Jesus in praise or in the Word.


What I am reading: I have been re-reading my Healing Oils of The Bible because I am conducting a class on them next month and I want to have all the information fresh in my mind. It is really beautiful to read about annointings and the importance of the essential oils the Lord provided for us. I suppose that means I am reading for fun not just to gather back up information in my forgetful brain. Ha ha ha!!


School Stuff: One thing we have been studying is the indoctrination’s happening in the great land of the United States. Really getting into studying some of the new laws the state is trying to pass too. I am sorry, but really? I think having boys and girls use the same bathroom, changing rooms and showers is way to Sodom and Gomorrah for me! You can go to to read more about this if you are interested. Ugh it makes me sick all these evil laws they are trying to sneak into our state by our governor with his own agenda.

We have done basic studies too, biology, algebra, literature, bible, etc… I think history and bible are my girls favorites this year :)


Picture to share: My new MOPS mug :)



My Oily Lovelies…

It is that back to the books time of year! I have been hitting them hard learning all sorts of information about additives in our food, supplements and such. The one I am bringing to you today is dicalcium phosphate. Why should we care and what is it? Well we should care about EVERYTHING we put into our bodies! We live in our bodies and we need to keep them in prime condition! What is dicalcium phosphate…this is an additive that is included in the production of enriched grain products (like flour and Maize) in breakfast cereal, pasta and many animal products (like dog bones and dog food) It is also available in diet pills and sometimes as a meal supplements.

Dicalcium phosphate is an ionic salt, meaning it’s made up of charged particles of calcium and phosphate, both of which humans need in the diet. While dicalcium phosphate isn’t as common a nutritional supplement as the more familiar tricalcium phosphate, it still shows up occasionally on nutrition labels as a means of adding calcium to a food.

Dicalcium phosphate has the chemical formula CaHPO4; it’s a combination of positively charged particles of calcium, and negatively charged particles of hydrogen phosphate, which is interchangeable with phosphate in the body .  Dicalcium phosphate shows up in some foods as a calcium supplement, but isn’t typically used in calcium pills.  Dicalcium phosphate shows up in some foods as a calcium supplement, but isn’t typically used in calcium pills.

Dicalcium phosphate is also a source of phosphorus. While humans typically don’t need phosphorus supplements, notes the Linus Pauling Institute, many animals do, so dicalcium phosphate has extensive application as a supplement in animal feed, according to  Though dicalcium phosphate isn’t the best possible source of calcium because of its low quantity of calcium as a percent of weight, it’s still a source of this important mineral. You need calcium to maintain the bone structure.  Uses of calcium include cell communication, neural signals and muscle contractions.

Negative effects:

According to evidence gathered by the National Library of Medication, National Institutes of Health, while calcium supplementation is often well-tolerated, high levels could upset the gastrointestinal system. Symptoms of gastrointestinal problems caused by dicalcium phosphate include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, stomach pain, thirst, dry mouth and increased urination. This worries me when I find it in some “Dietary Supplements”   that ask you to use their product multiple times in a day.  In line with  evidence gathered by the National Library of Medication, National Institutes of Health, while calcium supplementation is often well-tolerated, high levels could upset the gastrointestinal system.  People who are already experiencing problems with diarrhea, parathyroid disease, lung disease, kidney stones or other stomach-related problems should  stay away from products with diacalcium phosphate,  it has been known to increase the severity of their  pre existing conditions. .

As I  continue to  read information in  Physics Forums as well as the National Library of Medication, National Institutes of Health, and Pharmacy Health, calcium phosphate may interact NEGATIVELY with a variety of other drugs. For example, gallium nitrate decreases the ability of calcium to be absorbed in the body. Calcium decreases the effectiveness of the anti-epileptic drug phenytoin, and the antibiotics quinolone and tetracycline by decreasing absorption of the drugs. Verapamil increases absorption of calcium. Therefore, taking a calcium supplement such as dicalcium phosphate in addition to verapamil may cause symptoms similar to calcium overdose, which can include kidney stones, fatigue, muscle weakness, nausea and vomiting, frequent urination, changes in heart rate, confusion, constipation or diarrhea, headaches and coma.



Just some information I was glad to learn and I thought I would share.

Most important always remember:

The cleaner we eat and the cleaner we live the healthier we will be.
