Completion

A few weeks ago I attended a webinar that helped me plan and commit to creating daily posts to Instagram and Facebook and a blog post to WordPress at the beginning of each week. It was a lot harder than I thought. Each week I was not consistent, but last week was the first timeContinue reading “Completion”

Mental Health Self-Advocacy

This past weekend I had to call my pharmacy for my new ADHD medications. Long story short, I ran out of meds and went a day without them when I shouldn’t have. It wasn’t complete chaos, but I definitely noticed the difference. One area the meds help in is time management. I struggled pre-medication days,Continue reading “Mental Health Self-Advocacy”

Singing My Heart Out

This past week has been a good one! We celebrated our nieceโ€™s birthday. Then we celebrated with one of our childrenโ€™s friends and her family. They are moving from middle school to high school. Our time out was something I missed this past year. I had such a deep time of reflection once we wereContinue reading “Singing My Heart Out”

Preparing For An Official Launch

As some of you know, Iโ€™m preparing for an official launch for my small business. I have continued to work on creating items and I have been enjoying the creative process. The date I originally anticipated for my launch will be here in less than two weeks. However, I am new to this and canContinue reading “Preparing For An Official Launch”

Comfort Zone

As things begin to open back up here in Las Vegas, I noticed how many things I have taken for granted. I am someone who loves to be inside, at home, away from the crowds. It has been easy to be at home during the pandemic, until we slowly started doing more outside of ourContinue reading “Comfort Zone”

In the Waiting

As I have continued to pray about something very personal, I have been in this place of waiting. Waiting to hear from God on whatโ€™s next. Should I stay in the familiar place, with the comfort Iโ€™m used to or is God saying move into the unfamiliar and the uncomfortable? I think I know. ButContinue reading “In the Waiting”

Routine Mom

โ€œAs long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.โ€ Genesis 8:22 NLT As I read my devotional this morning, it got me thinking about how exhausting itโ€™s been lately. Always the same routine as a mom. Sometimes I feel like not showing up,Continue reading “Routine Mom”

Happy Halloween 2020

Happy Halloween friends! This day represents a couple of things for me. For one, itโ€™s my parentโ€™s wedding anniversary. This year is 39 years! Thatโ€™s pretty awesome! Happy Anniversary mom and dad (since I know youโ€™ll read this, mom)! Second, we usually celebrate a (wayyy) less scary version of Halloween each year. This year weContinue reading “Happy Halloween 2020”

Unexpected Changes

Hi!  For some of you who donโ€™t know, this is my family.  Family is an important part of my life.  In the beginning of starting Heartening Forward, I had decided that I wouldnโ€™t share my familyโ€™s faces publicly.  I did not want my page to be based off of only pictures of us because IContinue reading “Unexpected Changes”
