1 peter1:23-25 since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; for "All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever."And this word is the good news that was preached to you. 💐💐🌻
As I sit here, I'm contemplating joy and happiness, what does it mean to you?! Can you say that right this minute (overall) you're happy or joyful?! It's a question that was posed on the tv news I watch every morning. And I can't help it to wonder how many of us can say yes to this question.
Happiness is a feeling based on our circumstances and it may be impossible to be happy all the time because life throws at us different things constantly and we have to deal with them. However, in the midst of all of that we juggled in life can you find j o y?! I believe we can if WE place our joy in a personal relationship with God the father.
When our focus and trust is in God we can experience true joy in life! " May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. " - Romans 15:13
I start every morning reading a daily devotion, reading my Bible, writing scripture, praying, and then I read some type of personal development. This habit has made my early mornings less painful and has made me a better person (especially in those early hours)
Not everyday is as good as others. Some days I have more time, some days I barely get my devotion read. I don't always understand what I'm reading and that makes it a struggle to keep going. But I know that everyday I dive into these books, I'm getting closer to God. And when I'm closer to Him I have more peace in my life. And when times get tough and I'm struggling, I know that He will be there to tell me to keep going. And that is why making time for Him is the most important thing I can do on a daily basis.

Hi, I don't know if I'll ever stop posting pictures from this wedding. Just a heads up. Everything's fine. Just casually freaking out over these two incredible humans. I mean really.. they shot confetti canons off after they were announced as Mr. + Mrs. Chlouber for the first time!! (Look extra close for the leftover confetti. 🎉)
Also, Jesus is so stinking cool + I feel like confetti canons are going off in my heart. Another big season of moving + shaking in on the verge. Really, really excited to share the freedom + fun God is writing on my heart! If ya wanna stay updated, sign up for the est.HER Tribe newsletter. 💃🏼🎉
Roll call! All our Fierce Femmes drop a 🙋🏽♀️ below and let us know what City/Country you live in 👇
Another season is around the corner. 🍁 Before we know it, a new year, too. 🍾 Do you have clear, definitive goals for yourself, and a plan for how to hit them? 📝
As organized as I’d like to think I am, I never prioritized my health in this way. It wasn’t until I signed up with a coach who asked me these questions and helped me with a plan, that I started doing it. 👉🏻And I must say, it feels sooo good to be intentional instead of “floating about” - especially for something so important!
Being in a virtual “challenge group” aka a private coaching group has made a world of a difference for my fitness and nutrition, and I want to be able to pay that forward!!! 🙌🏻
I’m looking for 8️⃣ new ppl to join my next group ~~> Whether you have 5 lbs or 100 lbs to lose; want to maintain where you are or simply want to make healthier nutrition choices and/or fitness more of a habit, I want to help YOU!
🏃🏽♀️ Over 30 different workouts to choose from, done on your own time ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🥗 But working out ISN’T required. That’s right - ppl with injuries/overloaded schedules can follow this!!
👥 A virtual community to support you / help you maintain your goals once you hit them!
I knowww you’re thinking about it! 📲 me!! I can’t wait to see what results we will see in the fall!! 🍁 💃🏻
➵ One of the most important things you can learn right now while being single is that you are COMPLETE in Christ and in Him alone!! It is vital that you learn to let Jesus be the lover of your soul without distractions. I don't care how "great of a person" they are, they will not make you whole. God might send you someone to compliment you, but not to complete you. If you don't learn that now, you could enter into a relationship being needy. Wanting a love story of your own is so much different than needing one. When you need one you come to take, not to give. You come to be filled up, not to be poured out. Love is selfless. It does without expecting anything in return. It comes to serve, not be served.
To a hopeless romantic like myself, the waiting period seemed to be unbearable, but God knew what He was doing by making me wait. Looking back now, He turned those lonely nights into some of my most cherished experiences with Him. Do you know why? It was because I let Him be the Potter and I was the clay. I let Him mold me. I was obedient and available to Him. I wanted to pour my love out onto someone else, but He wanted me to allow His love to be poured into me! I learned so much about His character, his heart, and His love for me in my single days. I chose not to run to others for fulfillment, but to Him.
So to all of you singles....you have a choice to make. You can seek out a relationship, or you can seek to grow your relationship with the Lord Jesus. When you know more about Him, you are able to trust Him more. When you trust Him more, you can rest knowing that He will work it out in His time and in His way, and it will be more perfect than anything you could ever imagine. When you trust Him, you have less room for fear because you ultimately know He has your best interest at heart. Spend your time getting to know the One that will love you like no other. When it is time, He will cause your love story to unfold. ➵ 💕 #soulchaser
Out for my walk. Have a great day!
A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps -Proverbs 16:9
How many times have we tried to do it on our own? Jumped at the latest craze or wild idea and expected God to bless it? Too many times for me 🤦🏼♀️
Have you ever thought that the One who made you might have an idea of what will work for you?
Your faith and your fitness should not be two separate journeys. God wants to be part of and guide you in EVERY area of your life. .
No area of our lives should be off limits or thought of as little concern to God. He loves you and wants to help you and bless you in every area of your life! .
What area have you closed off to God or just thought He doesn’t really care about this?? .
Are you afraid to let Him in because you might have to give something up?
THIS IS BRITT. SHES MY BESTIE! VOTE FOR HER TO BE ON MAXIM SO WE CAN BE ON A BOAT!!

We're meant to be getting out the door but instead I'm frantically trying to fit my housework into five minutes: dishwasher loaded, benches clear, table wiped down, washing on, lounge tidy, a quick spot vacuum.⠀
The kids are groaning at me. Beeping the car horn even. The older one is texting me, "Hurry up Mom!"⠀
I don't even really know who I'm cleaning up for. The person who 'might' pop in? Am I hoping to give off the impression that I've got this working from home/homeschooling mom juggling act all figured out? That everything is under control?⠀
Is that the same reason that everything gets thrown into the master bedroom when guests are coming and the door firmly shut on any 'mess'? (Don't tell me you've never done that!)⠀
Lately, as I've found myself in this frame of mind, running around like a mad woman with my thoughts condemning me for all that is still undone, I've had Paul's words from Galatians ringing in my ears: Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of God (Gal. 1:10).⠀
You see, it's not my cleaning that's the problem but the driving force behind it. The search for approval and praise still often has me looking in the wrong places. Still sees me striving to earn what Christ has already given me and now invites me to stand firm in: grace, freedom, love, acceptance, belonging, purpose.⠀
And when I get caught up in trying to prove myself to those around me; in bending my priorities to reflect theirs, I miss His. I miss the things He is inviting me to partner with Him in. I miss the moments He is inviting me to enjoy. I miss the rest and peace that He invites me to live out of.⠀
So, I can't promise you I will never hide my mess again, but this recovering perfectionist is daily seeking to find her approval and her priorities in His presence. Where is God inviting you to cease striving and instead serve Him?⠀

I’m a soul;
I’m here to soak up
As many sunrises and sunset
as God allows;
I’m here to serve my light,
A lighthouse for the storms,
A keeper of joy, hope and love,
For my light is a Star alone
But the Sun with Him Above
Yes, I’m a Soul.
I collect experiences like trinkets
And form them into memories that sit,
Collecting dust on a shelf.
Yes, I’m a soul
Encased in a vessel of
Flesh and bone;
And while it will be sad when this vessel must go, this I know.
I’m a soul, my trinkets won’t break or fade, I’ll simply dust them off and enjoy
Each and every one of the memories I made.

From a sermon that a friend shared with me...
Courage and complacency can NOT coexist. God gives us courage for any climate in our life but it is our choice to CHOOSE whether or not we use it.
This hit me in a huge way. I know for me, I know when I feel comfortable. I know when I’m cozy in my own little bubble of life and I start to feel that tension. The tension of knowing God is calling me to get uncomfortable again but I’m not sure what that looks like...but I also know He’s faithful in the waiting.
I feel like I’ve talked with a few women this week who feel this tension too. What helps you most to seek God’s guidance and wisdom? Praying? Journaling? Seeking out a mentor? I’d love to hear from YOU!
It is time to stop being used by the enemy the same way we wouldn’t allow ourselves to be used by people!
Look Ma! I grew my first melon!!😃🍈
It’s the little things.😌
So proud of my first garden but there have definitely been a few fails! You can learn new things in your life if you’re willing to be a beginner. Then the whole world opens up to you!💜
