Happy Fall
Today I am sharing my #recipe for #guiltfree #pumpkinspicedlatte #psl this is the warm beverage everyone associates with fall.

1.5 tablespoons of pumpkin purée
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1-1.5 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Whip cream! Ok not totally guilt free but it sure does photograph well 😉

Instructions
1.Combine almond milk, pumpkin purée, pumpkin spice, maple syrup in sauce pan. Simmer until hot using a whisk to stir

2.
Add packet of rich black coffee to empty mug, pour in mixture from sauce pan, add whip cream and pumpkin pie spice sprinkled on top

Fear of Rejection

I have to speak on this topic, because yes I still struggle with it.  I decided yesterday I would begin to work on this fear and have been finding much comfort and inspiration from reading the bible and praying. Yesterday we had plans to go to an orchard as well as a family cookout for Labor Day. I knew this would interfere with church , so planned on attending the 830am service as opposed to the 1030. Well I overslept and didn't wake up till 8, then my mom called me and I ended up talking for about 20 minutes,  something clicked in my head and told me to get to church even if I would be late. After all, had it been work, I would have went anyway or any other appointment I would have still went.

So I arrive at church and the praise team was singing the most beautiful song and it was the last song before the sermon," Jesus at the Center" this song reinforced what I have been trying to do these last few weeks, have Jesus at the center of all that I do .

Moving on to the sermon, it was about emotional healing. The pastor ministered on fear, rejection, depression, anxiety, etc. I know God wanted me to hear that sermon and I am so thankful I went. So I leave you all with this scripture paraphased "if they don't welcome you, shake the dust off your feet as you leave as your testimony"

God's Favor

I have to give #praise to God as I am sitting home thinking about the favor he has shown me! Next week I will be in #Minnesota for my first #businesstrip I will finally get to meet the #beautiful #loving #heartcentered #leaders I was #blessed to introduced to in February 2015 
I am also preparing to take my #yoganursecertification training this October (earlier than I had planned, but this is GODs plan not mine ) 
and I will be teaching #yoga to all employees of my hospital job starting next month! I thank God for guiding me and  directing my path. #seekthekingdomfirst

Back to School

I am the proud pared of a kindergartner and 3rd grader! My where did the time go!!! I thought I would be really sad when the first day of school rolled around since this is the first year both my kids would be gone all day, but they were so excited and so proud! I couldn't help but be happy for them. I am thankful they love school and are learning at a young age to be social. For me I was very shy as a child and hated school because I just wanted to be home with my mom, thinking back to my elementary days I realize how much that has shaped me into who I am today. I am gratefully kids aren't like me in that respect lol, they are much more outgoing and don't mind getting out the house and meeting new people. It has taken me up to age 31 to be like them and I still have much work to do.
 Anyways, it was a joy to watch the leave off for school smiling, happy, and confident. Made me proud and oh so ☺️
