July Favorite Things

Once a month, I love to share my favorite things in order to connect with readers and promote the things I love. I hope you enjoy and please comment and let me know what some of your favorite things are right now.


Powersheets by Lara Casey

Powersheets is BY FAR the best goal making resource I've ever used. I never thought this INFP (emphasis on the P) would enjoy goal setting so much.

Setting goals has always been tragic for me. I begin with good intentions and never follow-through (emphasis on the P). I start feeling overwhelmed and quit. I focus on accomplishing, which quickly wears out its excitement.

Powersheets is different. It includes different thought activities that help you declutter your brain and heart, let go of your fears, focus on thankfulness, and make goals that really matter. It helps you break down the goals into manageable parts and reassess your goals every three months. It focuses on progress and process, not accomplishment.

And it includes stickers!

Powersheets is currently sold out, but look out for their new releases in November for the 2018 year.

Listening To

Moana Soundtrack

I know, I know. I am so behind. But, Cupcake and I recently watched Moana on DVD and now I'm obsessed with the soundtrack. I am not sure what took me so long to listen. I mean, I am obsessed with just about everything Lin Manuel Miranda writes.

Everyday Moments

Here is me and my stud husband out on a date Fort Collins, CO. To say I love this town is an understatement. I would move here in a heartbeat if the Lord allowed it. It's a little bit artsy mixed with a little bit outdoorsy and NO HUMIDITY. I love cold weather, so Winters would not be a problem.

We visited Fort Collins last week for our biennial Cru staff conference. This was my sixth Cru biennial in 14 years on staff. Some of my most favorite memories are at this conference-the singles party bus I was tricked into going on, hearing wise words from the late Bill Bright, pregnant with my first baby and throwing up in the dorm community bathroom, pretending to be The Little Mermaid on a rock in Estes Park, watching Cupcake crawl for the first time, raiding the Container Store with my dear friend, Holly.

This year I was reminded, thanks to Jenni Allen, that discipleship works and those crazy runs to Sonic with girls half my age means something for eternity.


I watched this movie on the airplane to Colorado. Yes, its whole purpose is to manipulate your emotions, but I don't care. It was a beautiful story that was beautifully acted, so manipulate all my emotions, Marc Webb!!!

Also-Chris Evans as a brooding, loving, present, surrogate dad. All the ovaries in the world are exploding.
