you guys are too much.

I love doodling and hand lettering, but let’s be serious, it’s just something to make my kids pay attention when I write something to tack up on our walls. y’all were so kind with your requests on insta, fb, emails, and some of you, sweet loves, even texted to tell me how much your family could use these words.

so I scanned and cleaned it up a little. but friends, it’s not perfect and I’m totally okay with that. print this baby out – plaster it all over your walls. tape it to your kids’ heads if you need to (I’m totally considering that for a special little friend in our house by the way). I’ve said it to myself a dozen times since posting it on our fridge yesterday, and I’m praying it makes a huge impact in your home as well. xoxo

and hey, if you feel like sharing this link with friends you love, that’d be cool too.

it’s been one of my favorite life quotes for some time now. it’s easy to think about hurdling fear in my life, when I think about all the good that awaits me on the other side.

fear can be debilitating. it can keep even the strongest people from moving forward and doing what they love. and when I think about the power grip it can have, I get sad thinking of all the good, amazing things being missed out on while we’re crushed underneath its weight.

so here’s to 2016. the year of knowing we are enough. that we are strong and kind, and it’s worth taking the first steps in whatever crazy direction we want, as long as it means we’re bringing joy to those around us and glory to Him.

be brave + strong. crush all fear. the life you’ve prayed for is just ahead.
