Always Enough, Never Too Much

Lies. In your head. We all have them. Don’t pretend like you don’t… you’re human, after all.

Sometimes they just pop out of nowhere and you find yourself going to The Dark Side (yes, Star Wars reference – Mom of BOYS, remember?). You get caught up in picking at and pointing out all of your so-called flaws, and forget that EVEN AT YOUR WORST, you are still loved and adored.

So this devotional caught my attention – for myself and for all of you! Sometimes you feel like you’re never enough, sometimes you feel like you’re just too much — so this devotional helps you get back to reality on both fronts (literally – it’s double-sided!).

From the publishers:

We’ve all been there. We know that sneaking, small voice in our heads all too well—you’re too loud. Too quiet. Too young. Too old. Too unimportant. Too ugly. Too silly. Too serious.

You’re not as successful as she is—look at her perfect family, look at her high-powered job, look at her great hair and size 4 skinny jeans. Why can’t you be more like her—be more in general? Why do you expect so much from everyone? Why can’t you take up less space? Ask for less? Be less?

The lies track well-worn paths in our minds and our hearts, wearing us down and making us question our role in God’s kingdom.

Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan, bestselling authors of Wild and Free will help you replace those lies with God’s truth. This devotional flip-book is designed for you, the woman who feels like she can be both too much and not enough—sometimes in the same day. When you  banish lies and insecurities and find your identity in Jesus, you can embrace these truths: You are always enough. You are never too much.

I love the topics for contemplation, they are so relatable! We have ALL had these thoughts..

… and these!

Such a great devotional to have on your nightstand to remind you that you are indeed just the way you’re meant to be.

A little inspiration…

Some of you already know I’ve been having some creative fun with one of my Instagram accounts. For those of you that didn’t know – well, now you do!

Time is precious. Every minute that ticks by is lost forever, and it seems very sad to me to waste our precious moments doing things that don’t fulfill us.

Now, I’m not saying we can all just up and quit doing laundry or emptying the dishwasher… things still need to get done for the sake of sanity. However, I had found that I was pouring myself, and a LOT of time, into something I wasn’t truly passionate about. And I was so, SO caught up in the hubbub of competition, success, and reaching the next goal, that I was letting my precious moments pass me by and neglecting the things that mean most to me.

Inspired by my friend Morgan, one of my creative soul sisters (she makes the most ahmazing candles ever @thebarnatpostoak ), I decided to make a change.

If I’m going to spend time working on something, I want to be passionate about it and be creative. If I’m going to be creative, I want it to be with purpose. My creativity is being channeled towards, and directed by, my faith — I see it and experience it more clearly every day. Thus my new adventure, The Berry Sweet Life.

Follow me @theberrysweetlife on Instagram (I’ll update this blog with it some day soon, I promise!) for some Love, Inspiration, Grace… and a lil’ bit of coffee and wine … and plants, because life is great with those things too, right?

I want to share the light of the world with everyone, and I find that this little project of mine is a great way to do just that.

I’ll still be here, getting crafty, making and sharing and yapping.. but if you’re into that inspirational stuff like I am, come visit!

The feed is also on Facebook if you live in that world.

God Bless!
