some inspiration…

There are a few things that I’ve been loving lately, have inspired me, or are just awesome that I wanted to share. Over the winter, I didn’t blog too much but I journaled and read more books than I have in a long time. (I’m going to do a separate post with some of the books that I read soon!) For now, here are some things that are definitely worth sharing…

1. Souvenir Magazine–  Loving this lifestyle magazine! Souvenir is kind of like my own Kinfolk (Kinfolk Magazine is a very popular magazine out right now.) ;) The photography is absolutely beautiful and I love all that it features.

2. 50 Tips for the Work at Home Mom– I love, love, love this writing from Karen Stott. It totally blessed me and put things into perspective when working part time from home. Even if you don’t work part time from home and have kids- it’s still worth reading! One of my favorite points she made was number 18:

“Avoid Comparison  You are enough.  End of story.  That girl over there… you don’t want her life.  Because you don’t have the grace for it.  You have the grace for yours.  You don’t have her kids, her job, her talents, her hubby, and her network FOR A REASON.  Because you are needed right where you are at.. by Your kids, Your job, Your hubby and YOUR network!  Do what you can, with what you have… right where you are at!  And be grateful..  Always be grateful.  What you are taking for granted, someone else is praying for.”

3. Influence Conference Workshops– This September, y’all must check out the Influence Conference! They announced some of the workshops that are being held (I wish I could attend them all!!) and I’m excited to be leading one of them on photography. You can read a little more about it on the Influence blog.

4. “Bring Your Nothing” by Shane & Shane – My goodness. I love Shane & Shane and am loving their new music!!  I’d say I’ve probably listened to this almost a hundred time already…almost. It’s just that good. All of the songs are blessing me and my walk with the Lord right now. Here is a song “Without Jesus”…

 Hope you are inspired today… Much love!



That #18… wow!! What true words. I love the ‘you don’t have grace for that’ and the ‘what you’re taking for granted is what someone’s praying for.’ Great little punch in the gut (in a good way, of course ;)

Always be grateful. What you are taking for granted, someone else is praying for. I love this..thank you for sharing. Hope you are doing well.

I too love the Souvenir magazines. They are lovely. As are the tunes of Shane & Shane. I pray the Lord continues to bless and inspire you! :)

that is such a great list! i’m not a mom, but a lot of it is still relevant to me. i did however send it to my bestie, who is a mom. thanks for sharing!
