{Be Confident} Peace in Surrender

In preparation for this particular post, I asked a few people what their idea of peace is. My mom actually gave me my favorite response,  “Well, it’s kind of like being in a boat with a storm all around. Your faith gives you peace to know that no matter what happens, God is in control.” My wise, wonderful mother. But just being real, I don’t always have that kind of faith. After my pastor’s Sunday morning sermon, I typically leave church feeling completely restored. Just feeling on fire for Christ and ready to kick the devil’s behind, you know?! But by Monday…

Sweet girls, the Lord blessed me with peace today through my dear friend Erin. I was sick, and could not write, and she stepped in to share the most heart-felt words about feeling like you’re not enough, and how that steals our peace in Christ. I am SO thrilled to introduce you to my dear, dear friend Erin Westermeyer. I pray her words sink right into your heart spaces today. ********************************************************************************************* I fell to the ground and let the sobs take over my body. All of my empty spaces were screaming for Enough: enough beauty, enough fame, enough talent, enough love. Enough,…


{Be Loving} Get Out of The Boat

“But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He…

Three of the biggest things I want to share with you that aren’t just from my personal experience but from the wise advice of other photographers that have spoken truth into my life. Here is what I wish I could go back and tell myself, that confused girl that so badly wanted to not just be a hobbyist, and not work at the cafe anymore, but wanted to actually be able to make a profit to spend more time pouring myself back into my passion, and one day own a successful portrait photography business. Yes, I’m still on that road,…

You can’t have the peace of Jesus if you’re only giving pieces of yourself to Him.  Because God is a gentleman, He never forces himself on anyone.  He can only fill the spaces you give him.  Sometimes, in our attempt to stay in control we hold on to things that aren’t good for us.  If we really want to be drenched with the peace that comes from Jesus, we have to let go of this world and free fall into what Christ has for us.  Jessica writes from her heart to yours today.  Let her words sink in.  The BEST…
