January has been off to a pretty productive start which is always a good thing in my book! Today I'm linking up with Jenna + Anne to talk about what is currently going on in our lives this month!
resolving | to set my mind on eternity // for the past few years, I have chosen one word to focus on in the new year instead of choosing resolutions. this year, I chose eternity and you can read all about why here! I want my mind and all I do to be set on eternity. I have been asking myself, "will this matter in 20,000 years?" Normally the answer is no so I know what I need to focus on in life. I want to say YES to that question more this year, focusing on sharing His love with others.
reading | The Bradley Method Book which focuses on natural, husband-coached childbirth + Ina May's guide to childbirth... // both amazing books! I am so excited to go through childbirth with my husband as my coach and encourager. He is the best as keeping me calm, peaceful, and relaxed in situations when I don't want to be so I know he will be the best! I recommend these books for anyone!
organizing | our home! // Our first baby is making her debut into the world in possibly less than SEVEN WEEKS! Y'all, I am organizing like crazy. We have to make room for her which is so crazy to think about. All we have to do is organize the kitchen, finish hanging wall décor, get our bedroom in order, finish her nursery, and put up new trim and get this house sanitized. Oh man.
loving | the season that I am in // the joy and pure love on my husband's face when he feels Josie kicking and moving around, getting woke up in the middle of the night feeling Josie hiccupping, and praising God for His grace in this season of my life. My heart hurts for those women still waiting for this season that I don't deserve to be in. But I am humbled and so thankful and desire to raise Josie to fear and love her God!
craving | oh, just everything. // Josie is growing like a weed since we are in the final stretch of her growing in my belly. She's eating all of my food so I am having to eat more (literally requested by my doctor.. I'm not complaining, haha). I can't wait to put all of my grandma's recipes to work in the kitchen this month. First up: her famous chicken casserole + yummy peach cobbler.
I am excited for what the rest of January brings as I strive to set my mind on what is important to the Kingdom of God!
