What I Wear-Ghingam Cowgirlish And Prayer


I've been contemplating prayer lately. I feel like there's so much pressure to craft a certain prayer, it has to include flowery words and be extremely eloquent. 

I have to be honest, for a long time I struggled with praying out loud. Every time I prayed out loud in front of others I'd feel like it just wasn't good enough. I didn't use large enough words, or I stumbled and said, "Um..." Or, "Uh..." Once too many. It became more and more about me and how others perceived me, than what it truly is-communication with a loving Heavenly Father. 
I've since swallowed my pride. Which isn't to say that I now pray in public and never think of what others might be thinking about my prayers. (hey, I'm working on it, Rome wasn't built in a day!) 

But more and more as I strive to draw closer to Jesus, He reminds me that the words I use while praying are of very little importance to Him, rather the intent of my heart.

  Imagine, if you will, a little girl telling her papa about her day. Does she pronounce every word clearly? Probably not. Does she lose her train of thought? Maybe. Does she lisp? Perhaps. But does a loving father stop his daughter to correct her words, telling her to use larger, more intelligent words? I should think not! 
   My point. What matters most is our heart. Am I pouring my everything out to Him? Do I daily lift up concerns, hopes, fears and thanks? I have to say that my most sincere broken prayers are usually less than three words, "God, help!" 


What I Wear-Lies?


I recently came across an article on Relevant magazine with 7 lies Christians believe. As I skimmed over them, #5 caught my attention. "God won't give you more than you can handle." Wow. Maybe I'm in the minority (or not) I so believed that! At first I was like, "No! There's a verse" Where did this lie come from? When did I accept something as truth without checking out scripture myself? It wasn't conscious, I don't know where this lie originated. It's scary to realize that if we're not digging into God's word on a regular basis and asking Him to uproot lies like this, we can easily be led astray. Fiction somehow becomes reality, the lines blur and suddenly you find yourself holding onto a "truth" about God/Jesus that simply isn't true. 
 If I'd stopped to think, I might've thought about how ultimately our relationship with Christ is based on our laying everything down. Daily we throw up our hands and say "It's too much! I can't handle this." And that's exactly where He wants us. Inadequate, insufficient in and of ourselves. Realize life IS more than we can handle! 
  That's why it's so awesome to have a God who can handle anything. Nothing is too much for Him to handle.

NEW Video-How To Dry Skin Brush Your Face


I've been meaning to do a video in dry skin brushing your face for quite some time. It has fantastic benefits, I highly recommend checking into dry skin brushing your body too.
Here's a great link to dry skin brushing your body:

What I Wear-Q and A Video session? Crazy Weather Lately


Henceforth, prepare to be utterly confused by my outfits and their current weather appropriateness. If you don't know this already, Montana people make jokes something to effect of "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes and it'll change." This is one hundred percent correct! This week has been unseasonably warm, 70's! But we're expecting a cold front, 45 deg. 
Some of you may not be aware that I don't typically post my outfits the day I wear them. It's just too stressful to try and get pictures, write a post and publish it on the same day. So I'll hoard outfit photos and post them as I get time to write the "article." Apparently it doesn't take me nearly as long as others to write posts. I typically take about 30 minutes to write up a post. I've read some people take 2-3hrs, I'm like, what?!
 But I don't sit down to write a post unless I know what I'm writing about. I'll think about possible topics during the day while I'm working and mentally write it, then in the evenings I actually sit down to write it. 

  I have another youtube video idea, but it's entirely dependent on You.
I've never done a Q and A video, and I thought it'd be fun to do one. 
So, here's where you come in: leave me questions! You can comment here, on Instagram, Facebook, or email. Silly, serious, THM, fashion, beauty, whatever floats your boat. I only ask that questions be kept appropriate. I look forward to answering your questions! 

I'm wearing: lace crop top-Debs $5//Black shirt-Target $8//Striped black and white skirt-thrifted $3.99//retro vintage style shoes-Amazon $99//pink flower statement necklace-Vanity $3.98
