First Christmas Picture..Nailed It!

"God, I know I ask so many questions. It's because being a mom is the toughest privilege I've ever loved.  I don't want to mess this up! So I simply offer my willingness to be a great mom today. That's all I have to give. I trust You to fill in the gaps and give me the wisdom, patience, and discernment that will be required of me. I love this child I call my own, but in reality this child is Yours first and You know them best. Thank You for the honor to join You on this journey of walking this precious person toward physical, emotional, and spiritual maturity." 
-Lysa TerKeurst

yes. yes. YES!

The last two weeks have been the hardest and BEST weeks of my life. Learning how to navigate my new role as a mom has been so incredibly humbling. I have never needed Jesus more. The nights where he just won't sleep and screams his head off for 3 straight hours, the days where I can't seem to produce enough milk to keep him satisfied, these moment require me to rely on Him more than I ever have in my life. And I am SO thankful for this opportunity. Besides being Adam's wife, being Bennett's mom is the greatest thing to ever happen to me.

And side note.. my husband ROCKS at being a dad. We are so thankful for him.


  1. This makes me so excited to see what all the Lord will do in your life through motherhood. I am so glad you’re sharing that here!! The baby photos are greats (obviously!!!) but I really do love getting to see your heart behind it and how Jesus is using it. You’re an encouragement to me! I love you, friend! My favorite Mama!

  2. The first few weeks are the hardest :) My little is only 5 months old and it does get easier and you will get more sleep (she isn't sleeping through the night yet, but your body adjusts). I tried to use those moments when she wouldn't sleep and would listen to praise music (it calms her) and podcasts. God is doing a mighty work in you!
