“As I go about my days, I can’t help but have a pure disgust for this world. It’s awful. I spend everyday watching as people hate one another. They bow to their idols. They choose themselves first… I look around my own house, marriage, and life to find so much idolatrous clutter. I am disgusted!
I feel like my body is crawling with 1000 bugs and I am trying to throw them off. Panic sets in and I’ve become more and more desperate to purge my life of sin and immorality and carnality. I wish to be a minimalist. Not because it’s a fad. But, because my life has taken on a form of its own. It has followed the gluttonous ways of this world and I no longer want anything to do with it…” [an entry from my journal] Read more
So many exciting things have been going down at the Davis Place. There’s just too many testimonies to fit into one blog post. But, slowly and surely, I will share them through this blog and my Instagram/FaceBook feeds. Some are small wins and others are major happenings that rocked my God-filled heart.
Waiting. Honestly, for me, waiting is much more grueling than the diagnosis (or lack there of), the treatments, the hormones, the nonexistence of understanding from loved ones, and the bitterness that will sometimes infiltrate my heart just because I’m even having to go through this. None of it pales to the waiting.
Waiting. That’s a big part of any storm. Read more
I’m ashamed to admit that, while it’s no means a habit, I’ve actually sneaked out of my office and run like a crazy person to my car in an attempt to escape the noose held in my boss’s hand. Like a criminal fleeing from the scene of a crime. Wide eyed, trying not to look over my shoulder because let’s face it, you just lose time that way! Escaping the opportunity for my boss to find me or poke his head out of the building’s door to flag me down. Yes, I’ve done that. Complete with tire tracks leading from my parking spot to the stop light… #RunLikeMadFromTheBoss #AshamedButNotReally
Step with me onto Jil’s Imagination Fun Bus for a second and conjure up a similar scene. Toot toot! All aboard! Read more
God is good. That’s all there is to it. The Holy Spirit has brought to mind the things I am to share with you today. Coffee in hand. My journal, bible, and heart are wide open. I’m ready to bring you to a level transparency that shows how in my weakness, I am made strong.
Y’all, I’ve been struggling these last few weeks. I mean, I have felt like the weight of this world has been on my shoulders. We all have been there. We’ve all been under the constraints of life.
In the spirit of “sharing is caring”, I’m going to share a few of my woes with you in hopes that perhaps one or a few of them will ring true with you today. Golly, that sounds sick? Doesn’t it??? Like I’m misery and would love some company??? That’s not what I mean and you know it.
My hope is that something may sound familiar because the ending of this short story is a good one. Read more
Well, it’s been about a month since I went full time SAHW (stay at home wife). It’s everything I’d thought it would be, plus a few surprises but it’s also been hard. SO much has happened over the last 4 short weeks that I still sit with my head spinning! Read more
Hello All! I am so excited to share how our appointment with the Naturopathic Doctor went this week!
First, let me throw out a disclaimer. The regimens and advise shared in this post were given to me specifically. While a lot of these can be utilized by anyone, I highly suggest consulting a practitioner before trying them individually or all together.
Ok, with that out of the way I can share away!
Brooks and I had the pleasure of meeting with a Nathuropathic Doctor this week. As you may know by my last blog post we are not moving forward with IVF at this time. We had planned to do so but some stuff happened and we are not able to now. So, in lieu of that we are giving natural medicine a shot. Read more
By now, you’d think I would be a pro at the unknown. I mean it’s been almost 10 years since this journey began and it has been a big question mark from the start. Navigating this unpredictable life is something like walking blindfolded, having to feel your way through the darkness. You have arms length knowledge of what’s to come but nothing more. And sometimes it’s only elbow length. Life is like that.
Brooks and I are in that exact season. This entire summer we’ve known a change was coming. We knew something was going to be different and we thought we knew what that difference was.
I’ve even been planning my fall blog posts around these changes and how I’m going to tell you about it! I’ve been so eager to share with you!
But circumstances have changed and those plans aren’t plans anymore. At least not now. Read more
I’ve always felt in my heart that I needed to live expectantly. To live as though tomorrow I could get my first “BFP” (Big Fat Positive pregnancy test). I’ve based my job decisions, where to live, and even which car to drive on “but what if we have a family???”. Read more
