♥️And that’s one of the reasons why I fell in love with you. That is why I chose to move in purpose with you, because we aren’t like any one else. Our lives. Our marriage. Our family. Our friendship. God’s way.
Kings and Queens,
You should want different. Marry someone who isn’t like everyone else. Someone who isn’t quick to follow the crowd but will follow Jesus. You should want your own thing with God’s divine direction. God has the perfect marriage for two imperfect people who serve a perfect God.
Existem pessoas emblemáticas. Existem lugares emblemáticos. E existem livros emblemáticos que contam histórias sobre pessoas emblemáticas em lugares emblemáticos.
Este é o caso de "Answered Prayers", ou, Súplicas Atendidas, do Truman Capote. Uma tentativa ambiciosa do autor de fazer uma releitura do "Em Busca do Tempo Perdido", de Proust, ou até mesmo da Cena Parisiense da "Comédia Humana" de Balzac - descrevendo cenas da vida cotidiana dos "muito ricos" do seu tempo.
Os efeitos foram desastrosos. Faltou doses de bom senso da parte de Truman, mas a obra em si é muito instigante. É lastimável que não tenha sido terminada.
O meu capítulo favorito chama-se La Côte Basque - nome do restaurante que servia como pano de fundo para uma série de encontros e conversas sobre pessoas influentes.

Never lower your self-esteem or standards because you are plus-size! Your good man is out there and he wants you as you are. Beautiful, Smart, Stable and passionate. Claim you and claim him...he’s coming!
Not only do I strive to be an amazing dating coach and matchmaker, I also work hard to be an amazing and nurturing mom. None of this is easy but I’m driven and I am enjoying this place I’m in.
I finally learned to create a schedule and lifestyle that I put myself first. It allows me grace, peace and energy to be fully present and in my zone of love and passion.
Its now carrying over to my 13 year old. 💔I’m in my feelings because last night was high school registration. I can’t believe my little baby Izzy my future AKA is on the way to high school. She has already declared she wants to attend Pepperdine University in Malibu CA.
WELP- 🤩Third grading period is done & done Izzy once again achieved all “A’s” and she’s in 8th grade advanced courses.
She’s done this all while:
•Being a cheerleader
•On student government
•Youth Group at church
•Working for me editing my videos
•🔥Managing her Social Media Accounts
Plz follow her she is very quirky & entertaining.

Prayed for something good to happen this morning and not even an hour later our Pest control company came by.

Someone says » I’m so tired.
Me » But are you pregnant?
First trimester exhaustion should be its own category of tired! Rounding the corner into second trimester 🙏🏼 It’s easy to complain while pregnant but I remind myself on the daily, there are so many women praying & praying for these symptoms and instead finding themselves in pure heartache.
Counting my blessings, especially growing this little nugget ♥️
Everything is because of God. I can’t exclaim it enough. On everything I have and everything I’m able to do is because of my faith. Your faith is what gets you everything you need, want and deserve is the reason for your life. Your life can be greater just believe and have faith.
Honestly, I’m not even accepting changed behaviors anymore...⠀
Show me consistency, integrity and unwavering conviction.⠀
Show me how your LIFE has changed.⠀
Show me how your patterns and cycles have been broken.⠀
Show me how your CHARACTER has changed.⠀
Show me how your MORALS and VALUES have changed and taken root in your soul.⠀
Real change takes a level of self-awareness that most people are terrified of. Because who is to blame for all of your toxic traits, mistakes and screwups? YOURSELF! Sit with it, own it and do everything it takes to CHANGE.⠀
No, I’m not accepting verbal apologies or changed behaviors. I’ve been through the gauntlet. I’ve been tested by fire. I have battled my way out of hell and I’ve been the a**hole who needed to change too. I know I’m still a work in progress but If I can do it, anyone can. The truth of the matter is, real change takes a lot of work, but only God can change a heart.

Like many I can struggle with prayer at times but be diligent and keep pressing on! I personally have seen much answered prayer in my life even when at times it didn’t seem like it! Prayer is a discipline just keep at it! “The Enemy wants you to think you’re wasting your breath. I want to encourage you to pray and keep on praying.
Prayer does make a difference. A life-changing, mind-blowing, earth-rattling difference.
We don’t need to know how. We don’t need to know when. We just need to kneel confidently and know the tremors of a simple Jesus girl’s prayers extend far wide and far high and far deep.” - Lysa Terkeurst “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16b (NIV)
How do I express my gratitude to God when ' thank you' is not even enough.
I keep writing and deleting stuff because what I want to say is inexpressible and that is my point. Saying 'Thank you' just does not cut it.
But all the same thank you to my Maker my God my everything. Chawucha! Asante! Merci Beaucoup! #gratitude#fridaymood#greatful#answeredprayers#prayerworks
Our sweet Olive Iris is 2 months old today! [I’ll eventually get around to taking an “official” two month photo of her 😏]. Today I’ve reflected on these last two months with our beautiful girl, but also on the journey it took to get to her. I want to write her birth story (and share the photos like this one!), as well as a blog post about how our secondary infertility journey has changed how we parent her as a newborn as opposed to how we did with Graham. Now, can someone please invent more time and give me a second set of arms so I can do so? 😉👩🏼💻

simply feeling thankful for all of the wonderfully intentional and loving people God’s put in my path. like seriously my heart is overflowing. never underestimate the power of an encouraging word 🖤 #badweeknotabadlife#lovemypeople#answeredprayers
Meet Ryder. Every day was scary. Every day could be the day he would go into anaphylactic shock. Every day I tried not to be overcome by fear.
This was our norm just 3 short years ago. I’m sharing his story again in hopes that I can breathe some knowledge, awareness and action for those who continue to suffer. ❤️ If you think this is just a weight loss company...this is for you.
If you’re tired of my posts...this is for you.
If you question the validity of this gut health stuff...this is for you.
If you can’t understand why I’m so passionate...this is for you.
My words from October 2016 👇🏻 “So today we got the official news we've been praying for, for many years! Ryder's latest blood work results came back with a NEGATIVE result for almond, pecan, walnut, sesame seed, wheat, coconut, garlic and milk!!! And All his remaining allergies levels are drastically lower, including peanut!
We were told that because his were so severe it might not be possible for him to grow out of much. But guess what? He has!!! I opened that letter today & was overcome with emotion that I burst into tears. Happy tears, not the paranoid, fearful tears of having to watch every single food and/or person he comes in contact with!
Please hear me when I say GUT HEALTH MATTERS! What we put into our bodies MATTERS! What we come in contact with MATTERS! 70% of our immune system is located in our gut.
I'm so thankful I followed my gut & refused to accept that there was nothing we could do & quote "his body just doesn't function properly & that's just the way it is." Thank you God for hearing this Mama's cry!!” #healingstartsinthegut#alleyways#allergymom#answeredprayers#wellness#boymom
God cares about the little things in life. Our son asked at bedtime if we could have crepes for breakfast and the recipe called for 2 eggs, but we only had one. In the morning I checked our chicken coop...one egg. Friends, God cares about the smallest requests. #answeredprayers#crepesforbreakfast#daughteroftheking

Bison, zucchini zoodleghetti. Despite having the flares which I am certain I will live with for the rest of my life to one degree or another I am loving my nutrition plan. I am almost 100% non gmo, organic and gluten free (those cookie cravings sometimes); and for roughly the last week and a half have been 100% dairy free. Last night as I was taking my meds (carvedilol, plaquenil, aspirin, klonopin and flwxeril) I had noticed that I was out of my flonase (no idea when the last time I used it #earlyonsetdementia ) but I had an aha moment and Thank you Jesus! For the first time in nearly 20 years I can breathe through my nose fully! Like no or very little congestion. I have had chronic rhinutitis or sinusitis (dependent upon the doctors diagnosis) and allergies. I can breathe! I have an intolerance to dairy and never knew it! I have been tested for celiac and that has come back negative but I am going to continue on this journey regardless because I can breathe!! How bad was it? I used to take Zyrtec in the morning, and Flonase coupled with either benadryl or nyquil so I could breathe through my cpap. Not anymore! #ddpyoga#lupuswarrior#autoimmune#icanbreathe#sleepapnea#dairyfree#notogmo#organicalltheway#glutenfree#weightlossjourney#extremeweightloss#chronicsinusitisnomore#owningit#godisgood#thankyoujesus#answeredprayers#smallvictories
One of the best animal moments ever! Thank you, God for giving me this beautiful moment! If we surrender ourselves to God, treat everything and everybody with love and respect and if we connect with nature in a beautiful and positive way and if we have positive intentions with God, ourselves and everything and everyone around us there is no stopping us from doing what we want to do in life! This is how we connect with nature and animals as a whole! This picture of me holding a Blue-tailed damselfly and caressing a Flame Skimmer dragonfly is proof that if we set our intentions with God we can possibly do what we love to do and prayers will be answered if we work hard! The universe will answer us and our wishes and dreams will be realized! I am proof of that along side of so many other believers! God comes first and with doing that the God in our hearts and souls will become activated and God will work small and big miracles through us! Praying for others and being generous is the most important! God will only double our blessings! - Tara
We went from a Coin Machine family to a family made of dreams!
My name is Amber Gray and this is my 1-Year updated Thrive Experience.
My family and I were your typical family, living paycheck to paycheck, and barely making it. We were visiting the coin return machine way too often, and that's just how our life was, and how I really always thought it would be.
I could not afford my first month of Thrive, but I knew in my soul I couldn't afford not to. Something deep down told me that this was the answer to my prayers. My family needed the beast in me, not the least of me, and I had nothing to lose but didn't quite understand at the time just what we would gain.
My Thrive Experience started March 16, 2018. In just a few short days, I knew I had to share this with all of my friends! They had a similar mood and personal struggles, and if it was helping me, the most straight forward skeptic on earth, It could help everyone and anyone.
My quickly growing team shared with passion and heart! We soared to 12K VIP in just 6 short weeks! We built friendships, and relationships and worked hard together for it!
We just got to go on our dream vacation to Punta Cana and came back so fired up, our team went 40K VIP 12 days after we got home!
That 40K VIP rank up is about to change so much for my kids, my family, and our futures! I will never be afraid to dream big again!
We have our first brand new car, that's paid for by this amazing company! We went from a coin machine to planning vacations, having savings, a team that is full of passion, and a bonus that will help secure a future for my children.
Thankful Grateful and Humbly Blessed,
40K VIP Le-Vel Brand Promoter

I'm loving the person I'm becoming - confident, happier, stronger, & goal oriented.
She went dormant for awhile...covered in shadows of self doubt, insecurities, discouragement, frustration, & feeling like life has a vicious cycle. 🌫😔
BUT through prayer, 🙏 Gods Grace ☝️, and taking control of my life instead of being a passenger...I'm finding myself again.
I know it sounds crazy, but this program was an answer to prayer. Now I'm surrounded by people who are positive 🔆, encouraging🌷, loving ❤, & who want to become the best versions of themselves 🙌. _
She never liked to comb and there only were a few who dared to walk through the mess that is her hair.
The cracks on her lips were never shy, they always put on a show.
She took pride in her arms that never knew how to embarass her.
Her breasts she took care of, because genetics threaten their existence.
She lived to make a living, her career her reason for being.
Until you came.
She still dreaded combing and the closest she gets it is from your fingers pulling her hair in every direction.
She never thought she'd press her lips as much as she blinks, one thing she finds herself doing the moment she had you. That, and nursing each crack that bleeds because you like to trace them, gingerly one minute, and forcefully the next.
Her arms might not know their old selves but they do know they can carry you all day, and grab diapers and wash sippy cups and even twist themselves for your viewing pleasure in between.
Her breasts never has she respected more, when they give you more than enough food even to this day, make you stop crying even by merely looking at them, and provide you with that comfort you need to snuggle yourself to sleep whenever you want to.
She discovered she misses who she was, but that also, there is more to making her career her everything -- because she was given a life and the gift to bring forth one; because she was given you, and you are everything she could ever ask for.
She makes her choice and she chooses you.
These two are the best miracles God has ever given me. I spent two pregnancies absolutely terrified every single day that I would lose them. The previous losses taught me that not every story has a happy ending, but these two are mine. I wouldn’t change a single moment of my journey to become a mommy, because to ask for change would mean these two wouldn’t be here. God’s timing is perfect, and I thank Him every day for my babies. #tbt#mybabies#momlife#godisgood#perfection#rainbowbabies#rainbowafterthestorm#answeredprayers
Rarely does answered prayer mean it’s smooth sailing all the way. 🌸 We pray for that prodigal child to come home, and they do. Yet there’s work to be done in the relationship.💪 We pray for God to help us achieve a dream. He does, and it’s more difficult than we imagined.❤ We pray for a promotion, and there’s a learning curve.📖 He answered our prayers, and He’ll be with us every step of the way. We can get caught up in the challenges, or celebrate where God is taking us.🙌 Heavenly Father, I have been so focused on the obstacles that I lost sight of what You did for me. Thank You for answering my prayer. 💞🙏 (Suzanne Eller, Proverbs 31 Ministries)
