the author of peace.


So I came to sit down and work today and didn’t know even where to begin. Ever felt like this? Like there is so much to do you don’t even know where to start? Yeah, that’s how I’m feeling today. This is a busy season for us photographers and I feel like my work has been slowly piling up. I think it’s best if I stay honest so to be honest, everything is kind of a hot mess right now. My house, my computer, the photos waiting to be edited, emails, facebook messages (oh facebook messages…ah!) are all kind of…a hot mess. And I think it’s good to be honest because I always wonder how some moms who have small businesses seem to have it all together. Cause I don’t have it all together. But that’s okay.

…It’s okay because since I don’t have it all together and my life is currently a little crazy…His grace is enough. He knows that I’m putting one foot in front of another and trusting Him during this season. In my weakness- He can be my strength. I am taking a deep breath today and telling myself that everything will be finished and I need to let go of worry. Soon enough, things won’t be piled up anymore ;) A verse has been going through my head the last few days: “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace…” 1 Cor. 14:33 Praying for that kind of peace today as I look at the load of work that’s currently sitting in front of me and the laundry that is piled high :)


It will all get done. Just breathe… Love, Mom

Thanks for sharing Arielle! Hang in there dear! It will all get done in His timing. Such a great reminder from 1 Cor. I love love love that verse. Rest in His peace and move forward one tiny step at a time. :) Praying for you!

My friend, you are certainly NOT alone in this. My room is a disaster zone, I have at least two sessions to edit, and plenty more things that I should be working on. ;) LOVE that verse. He truly is peace… and to know peace is to know Him. Praying He covers all of us in the peace that passes understanding today! xoxo


You will get it done! Keep chipping away. Your work is amazing, so people will just have to wait a little bit :) I love you!

Yes, yes, yes. I’m not a photographer but I’m there. Grace upon grace! xo.
