House of Belonging: the art of living courageously 

::::: 

we will tell stories of courage

answer the questions of HOW do I live courageously in the middle of cancer for example
you fill in the blank a word
YOUR stories
grassroots stories 
we will peek inside hearts of people around the country
we will get real
we pray hearts are stirred
we will offer meaty content to chew on
that encourages YOU to pioneer new territories
take down giants
set captives FREE
maybe even cook a good meal
just to BEGIN..
to let each other know WE ARE NOT ALONE!

our first lookbook..ebook..some kind of book…haha
to say it was a learning curve is an understatement!
my upcoming surgery had us in a time crunch which meant we didn’t get to put
EVERYTHING in it THIS go round

but hey...we are trusting Jesus with it all…it’s ALL GOOD!! right?

lesson learned: there is A LOT of work in putting together a lookbook!

volume I is a  sampling of  sorts of what is to come

WHO took these pictures you ask???

i love this person so much..and i have been so…beside myself to share her and her beautiful work with all
my FRIENDS!

we mailed lissa the shirts and she ran with it telling the story that we all believed God wants
women to hear

lissa so freely gave herself..her heart..to us
i’m just going to SAY it…it was God!
she bared her soul and let Jesus pour Himself into her

i can’t even pick a favorite..can you?
i LOVE them all!!

her gift is telling soul stories through the lens of her camera
she lives her life REAL and is a living example of  allowing God to heal her and set her FREE
to BECOME all that He had in mind for her from the beginning

house of belonging : the art of living courageously

webversionmag

God, You catch us -You can reach alllll the way
from sky to sea – You can pull us out of anything!
from the ocean waves that leave us gasping to the giants breathing out threats and taunting us,
only You truly know the void in which we are drowning
they hit us when we’re down,  when life’s blows come
but God always sticks with us
You stood us up in a WIDE OPEN field
we stood there…SAVED — surprised to be LOVED!
(the last two sentences are my fav…)

 

YOU God – are making our lives complete..moment by moment..day by day
when we place ALL the pieces before You
when we surrender our plans for YOUR plans 
when we are alert to Your ways
and don’t take You for granted
daily going over the ways You work;
we try not to miss a beat
we begin to feel put back together
and we practice trusting you ..with each step

God..only YOU…You rewrite our lives
when we surrender the book of our heart to your eyes
-psalm 18:16-24 mingled with my words.  i wrote this out as a prayer to God last week in my journal

something new is growing around the HOUSE:)  i can feel it coming alive…

the rest of the story is coming next week!!

( i wrote this sign here..i agonized narrowing it down but this is what i ended up with..i pray it blesses your heart too:)

:here is where you can share your heart in several sentences..running from left to right-or you can use these words
maybe you have a prayer you have Spoken Over your child before he was ever born?
or a journal entry you wrote for her that you want to frame and hang?

::::::::::::::::::::

these words will begin to frame their lives as they live and move in their room

words are powerfully silent

we speak over our children our hopes dreams and prayers
and now they can hang in their room and someday can be hung in their home when they are grown and have a home and children of their own

what i would say to the little girl in me…

i wrote some of my heart out on wood…you know in the bible when it says He saves our tears in a bottle?
this is what i hear God say when he has cupped my face so many times…He drowns out the lies i hear with truth
He believes in me..He comforts me like no one else can…this is what He is telling the 9 year old little girl when her world
has broken into a million pieces and in her eyes her daddy would be there helping her pick up the pieces but so often that is not the
case for little girls…or boys
but our real Father…He bends down…our very own daddy – with His eyes sparkling with joy seeing us as we really are consumed with love He says…

:i love my mom in this shirt:

you were born to blaze new trails
to pioneer great adventures
to reclaim new territories – take daring risks
to tell your one.of.a.kind story and
if necessary start a new page
use your story to CREATE a new future – don’t live in the past
never ever quit and when you fall hard…get up harder YOU are God-strong
when you cross over into new land and face unknown giants always remember

you are never alone- the God – of – the – Angel – Armies goes before you
you were born  a warrior – wounded scarred and battle-weary but SAVED by no strings attached GRACE
fight hard for your story – you are worth fighting for
you are ENOUGH.  you are strong and courageous
heaven is singing songs over you every.single.day
i know you will have BIG faith

slavery to anything is surviving
instead..choose to live FREE let faith not fear be your compass
TRUTH not lies be your guide
my prayer for you for all eternity is that God’s word – like blood -
pumps through your veins
that you crave His LOVE like the oxygen you breathe
you are set-apart..watch with eyes wide open for God do amazing things around you

remember to give God room to PROVE Himself FAITHFUL
God is with you ALWAYS-
make your mark by DREAMing BIG..because you never know that
you were born for such a time as this…write your HIStory…xo

:::::::

sometimes i sense a fire at my heels and the need to run….
i an sense it coming in my bones
the need for them to know

i wrote these words first to the little girl in me and then for all the little girls and boys who are lost…who have no voice
who feel abandoned…who are in hopeless situations

so they will know.  so someone will tell them…believe these words for them
i write them to my children…my grandchildren
because one day we may not live in a country where we are so free
a day doesn’t go by that i don’t feel grateful for all i have…all we have as a country
but i believe it isn’t always going to be this way

and i believe there is a call going out to prepare..we are not to live by fear
we are to be on the front lines

and i wonder have i taught my children … not by my words but by how i live..what i stand for
it’s time

i hope to have this sign ready before i leave for Hope Spoken thursday!!!!

more on that soon and we still have a big surprise i am DYING
to share with you but i think it will have to wait until after i get back…but it is worth the wait…she is worth the wait…and i get to squeeze her neck in less than a week…..eeeekkkkk!!!!
