A New Adventure Ahead

Sharing some exciting news as we step into a brand new adventure with our health! 

Let’s connect–leave me a comment! 

Shining For Him


Fourth grade is no joke! This can be a time where most boys and girls are coming into their own personality, making their own choices on who they call friend, being tested academically, emotionally and spiritually day in and day out! 

This season has even tested me as a mom in building a relationship with my 10 year old daughter! Do I just want to tell her how to handle a situation or do I listen to the 4th grade drama and equip her for the very similar  types of drama that unfortunately show up later on in life too? Ofcourse, my natural mama bear surfaces and I want to protect her heart and tell her exactly what to do and how to do it! But will that help her in the future when I’m not around? 

After listening to countless stories this school year, my advice always seemed to come back to one statement, “Alyssa let your light shine and keep being who you are in Christ.” 

 At school Alyssa was presented with student of the month and she received the “Peace Keeper” award. They describe a peace keeper to not only be someone who is helpful to their teachers and friends; or one that chooses to keep peace and above the drama; but one who also lets their light shine in all circumstances

Our sweet girl chose to keep peace and kept being who she is! A lesson that I know personally is never easy to do at any age! 

Are you choosing to let your light shine today? Are you keeping peace in whatever situation you may be facing?  “Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.” James 3:18

An Interactive BB-8…Meet and Greet!

Announcing the newest character to the StarWars line-up–an interactive BB-8! He moves, answers your questions, laughs in his own BB-8 way, and you can even give him a hug! A definite must-see as he makes his debut starting this weekend at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. 

My family and I had so much fun  promoting this adorable character and it is definitely one of our favorite experiences! (You can view our video here)

Don’t forget to checkout the other Star Wars characters as well, Chewy and Kylo-Ren! I gotta admit Kylo Ren was pretty intense! Yikes!
