Rylee is OBSESSED 🔑 .
So little Rylee Rae has a bit of a thing for her mama’s car keys. She will do whatever she can to grab a hold of them, shake them about, throw them on the floor, shove them in her mouth 🥴 and cry when they are prized from her sticky little fingers (sticky because OMG her GRIP 🤯).
I bought her a plastic set of teething keys and she pretty much laughed in my face 😂
Along came @yummikeys , they are a teething “toy” but who cares that she’s not teething, she LOVES them and is totally obsessed 🙌🏼 they obviously taste #Yummi because the only time they’re out of her mouth is when she is jangling them about 🥰 🎶 they are worth every penny and if you have an active, munchkin that is either teething or just needs constant entertainment, do yourself a favour and get some. They also do rings and gorgeous little teething necklaces that don’t look like you’re wearing a great big silicone child’s toy around your neck 🙌🏼.

I'm not usually a big fan of short stories, but this one I love!
What if that was the one story you wrote for yourself in your life?
You made it. (Whatever that means to you!) What does that look like to you in the future? What does it look, sound and feel like to have 'made it'. This is the kind of thing that we need to get super clear on in our lives and in our businesses too.
Where will you be? What will you be doing? Who is there with you? How will you celebrate?
Keep your story simple and easy to follow. Don't get distracted along the way.

This is where our spiritual retreat idea all began. We took a survey to identify our God-given passions and we're completely shocked that we both mentioned a spiritual retreat. We had never once talked about this idea, but it's clear God was stirring something in both of our hearts.
Are you reading this and thinking, "Huh, I wonder what MY God-given passion is?" Then, answer these two questions yourself:
1) What would you do for God if you knew you couldn't fail?
2) What are the top two needs I love to meet for people?
If you feel comfortable, please share your answers. Your answer just might encourage another to take that next step towards their passion. 🌱
"Jesus loves me whether you come to Christ or not. I’m covered by Jesus’ righteousness not by my ability to explain the Gospel well. Nothing I do makes Him love me more and nothing I do can makes Him love me less. Apparently, I was worth dying for and that really should satisfy my tender little ego enough to get me over myself and enthralled with Jesus.
I’m freed up to please Him, to enjoy Him, to be so affected by His love that I love you.
I have my Quiet Time because it’s nice to spend time with Someone Who loves me.
I tell others about Jesus because He loves you like He loves me.
I still won’t explain it as well as I want to, people might think badly of me, they may never be interested… but the Gospel matters.
The Gospel is worth being thought of as gullible, manipulative, or dumb.
The Gospel is worth being ridiculous for because we are ridiculously loved.
The Gospel is worth all kinds of rejection.
Jesus is worthy. (Another supreme understatement.)
So, I’ll keep wanting Jesus so much that you might want Him too."

Now when Mary came to where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet, saying to him, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled. And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” Jesus wept. So the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man also have kept this man from dying?”
Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, “Lord, by this time there will be an odor, for he has been dead four days.” Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me.” When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” - John 11:32-44
Take heart, sufferer. God is aware of your anguish. He is deeply moved by your pain, and there is no single tear not counted and kept by Him. Hope in the Lord, you brokenhearted, for God is at work in your suffering. This shadow of death is not meaningless! For we belong to a Savior who can use the deepest grave for His glory and our good. 💕
"I believe one way we can start closing the division gap is by being united even in our quiet times. Quiet time with Jesus doesn’t have to be a lonely place; your secret place with the Lord can grow stronger by the accountability of a quiet time partner or group! You don’t even have to be physically present with them (even though this would be good for you to have a couple of times a month) but you could simply read the same passages during your quiet times and discuss them afterwards! Knowing that others are going through quiet times just like you not only motivates us, but it strengths our faith as believers.
For a long time I noticed myself answering questions the world had about division in christianity with my own opinions instead of using the sword given to me by God: His word. I was lacking in my quiet time with Him!
The natural human response to fix division in the church would be to have a nation-wide meeting where we address the issues and tell people how to behave, but that’s not necessarily how God does things. One thing God has been personally speaking to me is that change often begins in secret."

"The amazing truth is that God changes our appetites- the more we go after Him the more we want to go after Him. It doesn’t always look perfect (Instagram can be deceptive!). Some weeks I miss mornings (especially after parent’s evenings or the last week of term!), but rather than feeling bad about this, I sense God’s pleasure in my pursuit of Him. I know that He wants my heart and has no interest in the empty work of simply ticking off quiet time from my to-do list.
The best advice I could offer you would be to make a plan that makes the most sense for you. There is no set pattern to follow, the time we spend with Him is unique. Also, a short time with Him is better than no time at all. I used to think that there was no point if I couldn’t spend hours poring over scripture but I have heard God’s voice more in these short minutes in His Word than I have at any other time in my nearly 10 years of walking with Him." - @myheartnotes
Every Friday we send out a short email written by a sister-in-Christ who loves and values having a daily quiet time! We're all on this journey together. If you need some encouragement from women like you who are striving to seek the Lord with their whole heart, then sign up for our Quiet Timers series at the link in our bio. 💕

Persevering in faith has been heavy on my mind lately.
It seems as though everywhere I look there is a Christian leader who is walking away from core truths of the Gospel. It is discouraging to say the least, and even a little frightening. It makes me realize just how little I know people, and how true it is that man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord sees and knows the heart.
Jesus warned us time and again that this world would do everything it could to rob us of our faith, and for those who have yet to be adequately discipled in the truths of the Gospel, I believe this to be a real danger. It is far too easy to profess Christianity, attend church for years, and never actually understand what it means to follow Jesus. When salvation is cut down to a Sinner's Prayer, we run the risk of casting the majority of our evangelical seeds onto rocky and thorny soil. It's easy to say a prayer, it's another thing to persevere with Jesus.
We have the promise that nothing, NOTHING can ever separate us from the love and grace of Christ, not even our own fallen natures. This is the beauty of GRACE! Freedom is available to anyone who wants it, no sinner is exempt. However, we often forget the frightening truth that Jesus isn't going to save you against your will. If you don't want Him, He will not hold you hostage.
For many, this denial of Christ is a slow fade. Christianity might have given them enough reason to go to youth group or write a book or get to the mission field, but as the years go by, the secret places of our deepest loves will inevitably be revealed.
Take heart, fellow Christian. Jesus will finish the good work He started in those who truly belong to Him, and anyone who has had an undying love for Jesus stoked within their soul can never quench the flame. And when you are grieved by your own lack of feeling for our Lord, (which is typical of mortal creatures) pray with all the groaning tears you can muster, "Lord, help me WANT to want you."
He never ignores such a plea.

Truth and grace should never be separated from each other, and the perfect example of this is Jesus.
Jesus didn't only come to graciously atone for all who believe in Him. He came and spoke truth, condemned sin, and revealed all manner of idolatry. Jesus never beat around the bush, and He never hesitated to stomp on the serpent head of sin.
But as He offered us the painful conviction of truth in one hand, He extended a salvation of grace and love with the other.
If Jesus had only come to tell us how wicked and evil we are without giving us an escape route of GRACE, then He would not be perfectly loving.
And if Jesus had never told us the TRUTH about our death-bound condition then we would have never seen our need, and His crucifixion and resurrection would be meaningless.
Season your words with both grace and truth, sister, and whatever you do, do not allow one to forget the other. 💕
