3 Things I’ve Learned About Working Out Lately

Since college, I’ve had an ‘all or nothing’ relationship with working out. Growing up I was super active (like most of us are) and I even cheered throughout college so movement was easy – something I just did. But as an adult, I feel like there’s this huge lack of motivation that comes with working out. And maybe it’s because of the pressure we start putting on it. It becomes…

One Thing Making My Life Easier Right Now

If you’ve been following along for a while, you probably know this about me: I’m a lazy driven person. I don’t even know if LAZY is the right word – it’s probably not – but I like life to feel EASY. And I’m not someone who enjoys being on the go 24/7. Does that make sense? Like I will kill myself to make a project perfect, but I also know…

My Summer Morning Routine + Favorite Dallas Coffee Shops to Work From

If I had to choose a season where I most like my morning routine, it’s probably summer (though a cozy Fall morning is awesome too!). But there’s something about the warmer, lighter summer mornings that make getting up early easier and all around more enjoyable. I think my early morning Pilates routine has also just instilled waking up earlier and being active in the mornings which has truly been a…

Believe it or not, there are some things you can do to make your flight more comfortable and even make the…

15 Self-Care Strategies for Better Work/Life Balance

At the end of the year, I wrote a post about how to find balance when you’re busy and then another post in January about how my life was incredibly unbalanced and my journey to figuring out why. After publishing both of those, I realized how important it was to talk about balance on BTD. It goes back to one of the basic reasons I share my life on this…

Attributes of God: He is Self-Existent

Attributes of God: He is Incomprehensible

We are in the second week of a current series we are doing here on BTD and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it has been for me to spend time dwelling on the infinite nature of God! I felt so much permission this week to be ok with my limitations and lean into God, knowing He has none. I wrote a little bit about it in…

Attributes of God: He Is Infinite

God is Infinite. Which means he has absolutely ZERO limitations. Have you ever thought about what this means? I  know that until  recently I certainly haven’t. But as I’ve been praying and reflecting over this concept  over the past week, I’ve really come to appreciate and be dumbfounded by the fact that our God is an infinite God. I may not always consciously realize it, but I basically  *try* to…

How to *Actually* Keep Your House Clean

Hi Friends! Today I want to tackle a BIG topic – keeping your house clean. We’re deep into spring cleaning season at this point and I’ve spent quite a bit of time thinking about ways to *actually* keep my house in order for more than a day after a deep cleaning sesh.

The Attributes of God

If you’ve been keeping up with my posts, you know I’ve been focusing on prayer for the last few months. As I’ve been exploring prayer and implementing more of it into my life, I began to think about how important it is for me to really know who I am praying to. Not just a general knowledge, but a detailed knowledge of God that tells me what he is like and…
