How I Get the Most Out of My Quiet Time

DISCLOSURE: There are affiliate links below in case you want to try out some of these resources for yourself. They don’t cost you any extra to shop with them, but I do get a small percentage of the proceeds. I also received the IF + DaySpring kit for free. All opinions are always my own. Promise. I’ve been following Jesus for about 15 years now, but it’s taken me until the past couple years to figure out what works best for me...

Pregnancy Update: 17-18 weeks

How far along are you? 18 weeks on June 5. How big is baby? An artichoke! About 5 1/2 inches and 6 3/4 ounces (if you’re like me and can’t picture the size of an artichoke off the top of your head!). I pretty much always look like I just ate four plates of food at a buffet now, so if you didn’t know that I’m pregnant it just looks like chub (although it’s a little more hard than flabby), but I’ve had...

A couple months ago, I started “counting the fruit” before I share my monthly goals and I think it’s helping. It gives me a chance to look back on...

Pregnancy Update: 15-16 weeks

How far along are you? 16 weeks on May 22. How big is baby? An avocado! 🥑 My boss asked me how I was doing a couple weeks ago and I happened to be looking at my pregnancy app, so I told him that it was the size of a peach and he said, “Awe, it’ll be an avocado before you know it!” He was joking, but here we are. Haha! How are you feeling? I’m still sleepy most of the time, but not as...
