what I learned from 10 months off social media

Posted in lifestyle

This post is where it all started. 2017, the year of no internet posting.

Then I added blogging back.

Why am I cutting the year a month short?

a few favorites of late

EAT
Eating lots of watermelon and peaches. Summer fruit is the bestttttt.

WATCH
My sister told me about Quantico, so J and I watch a few episodes a week, and it’s suspenseful with a cool, crazy story line.

READ
Discovered a new series about women in the Bible: The Esther Anointing.

We can’t be an effective vessel with baggage weighing on us, effecting our ability to hear and obey God.”

LISTEN
Came across a new podcast called Feathers. Fun and refreshing. And The Last Battle for my work commute, of course. Also, with my niece and nephews around, it’s been a lot of jamming to Hillsong Young & Free. :)

MEET
Had dinner with a new couple visiting our church and hit it off super well. Really like it when that happens. 

COOL
Leaning into Father no matter your feelings, circumstances, or clarity. He is present, He is good, and oftentimes I have to preach to myself Truth, so that I don’t believe a lie.

MAKE
I want to go home and make this salad recipe right now. (pictured)
