When it’s come to big questions of the universe or small questions of my life, I’ve always just defaulted to trust that God has a plan and loves me and is in control. But very recently I’ve finally decided to face a personal struggle head on. Off and on in the past nearly four years of wrestling with the why, I’ve found myself tugged to view it as an injustice towards me. I start towards the whiny kid stage of “It’s just not fair!”
I completed my first Whole30 in January this year and Kyle and I have eaten Whole30 or paleo on and off before and after that. In January, I blogged about how that round was going every week. I had several of you ask me for tips and favorite recipes. So here’s my collection of our favorites! About half of them are super easy to make, and they other half aren’t complicated, but are just too yummy not to include! Try them and let me know how you like them!
My great-grandad said, "If there's anything else in the world besides ministry you could do and be happy, do that instead."
After coming off the college years of binge-browsing Pinterest homes and DIY decor, I idealized (maybe idolized) what it looked like to be the perfect hostess.... I finally decided: Hey, this is where I live.
I'm extra sensitive to nagging - it's like my biggest fear to become a nagging wife, so I lean towards the secret grumbling end of things. The only problem is, that builds up then explodes over something insignificant like a single sock that's been on the living room floor all week. These explosions are not pretty or helpful to anyone.
Ok, honestly, I love lazy days on the couch binge-watching Netflix and surrounded by the trash that once held my junk food just as much as the next guy. In fact, I did a lot of that this past weekend. But even then, encompassed by my lack of motivation, I feel super antsy I’m not doing something.
