I've been reading "Wrestling Prayer" by Eric and Leslie Ludy. I highly recommended this book! 
In the current chapter I'm reading, they're talking about being flabby Christians. It's interesting to think about our inner spiritual life in these terms. While God certainly doesn't require us to be physically svelte, I think our inner life is a different story. 

We can wreck our outer health by eating a steady diet of junk (uh, Cheetos and ice cream aren't health building FYI haha). In the same way, by feeding ourselves a steady spiritual diet of junk, we tear down our relationship with Christ and thereby tear down our spiritual health. Haven't read your Bible in who knows how long? That muscle's looking pretty flabby there. Spent all day watching tv? Sounds like a recipe for spiritual disaster. Idleness really is the devil's playground. Am I mentioning all this because I myself have an amazing spiritual physique? Nope. Far from it! I struggle just as much as anyone to read my Bible regularly, to pray more than "give me, give me". But I want to encourage you ladies to get those spiritual muscles into shape. Here are a few tips for reading your Bible and praying regularly: 
1. Do it.
Seriously, that's it! Quit making excuses, you can do this. Don't beat yourself up if you forget to read it one day, start over. Ask God for help in being faithful. Do you read or pray out of duty? I hope not. Prayer and reading your Bible shouldn't be done because it's what you "should" do. 
  Now your asking, "So if I don't feel like praying, does that mean I don't love God?" No, of course not. Feelings lead us astray. God knows your heart and your intentions, maybe better than you do. 
Just do it. 


What I Wear-Uh...Crocs?

I'm wearing-Pink cardigan-thrifted $3.00//Striped shirt-H&M $5//Black palazzo pants-Maurice's $7.50//Croc Ballet Flats-Famous footwear $20

This is the outfit I wore to church today. A mix of casual and comfy, yet classy. I absolutely adore this cardigan, mostly because the sleeves are super long. It's rare for me to find sleeves that are long enough, usually they're too short. 
I seriously tried like ten different shirts with these pants...not proud, just sayin...

The weather in Montana has been unseasonably warm lately, I'm bracing for a big WHAM! But so far...I'm still wearing sandals and short sleeves. It's gotten cooler, for sure. But usually by this time it's snowed a couple times and I'm stuck in boots. 

I have to talk about my shoes. They're...Crocs! What?! I know, insane right? These are actually my second pair of Croc shoes. I always assumed that Crocs were those dorky clunky ones, not cute. Till I found these, and a pair of sandals. They're insanely comfy! Unfortunately, as I'm getting older, cute goes out the window if the shoes aren't comfortable. I'm tired of wearing shoes that kill my feet, enter these lovelies. 

Have you ever worn Crocs? 


What I Wear-Autumn Fashion Event Day 2


Today is day 2 of Ashley's Autumn Fashion event.
This morning was on the cooler side, so I opted for a more Fall-ish look this time. I purchased this black blazer at Ross last month for $12.99 and it's the first time I've worn it. It fits beautifully and I'm pretty sure you're going to get sick of seeing this jacket. 

I'm experimenting with braids lately, which is fun. I actually braided my hair last night, then put it in a headband curl. Braids are one of those super easy hairstyles that look like I spent hours on my hair. (Reality is I spent five minutes while watching White Collar...) 

Do you have any braided hairstyles for me to try?

What I Wear-Autumn Trends Event Day 1


I'm making my attempt at joining Ashley's Fall blog event. The only snag is that it's currently 80 deg. where I live! While I'd love to wear a sweater or a pair of boots, it's not feasible today. Tomorrow is forecasted as 54 and rain, so maybe I'll get to wear long sleeves at the very least. 

So I picked this outfit because it has a sort of Fall "vibe" to it. The darker colors, scarf and closed toe shoes felt sort of Fall-ish to me. 

Funny secret about my scarf, promise you won't tell? Well, okay I'll tell you. I had a striped skirt that hit mid calf, an unflattering length. So I snipped it off and 'voila-presto! A striped scarf. How very classy of me. Haha!

What I Wear-Fresh Modesty Copycat And Wet Cement


If you follow me in Instagram, you already got a sneak peek of this outfit. Putting it together, I thought "This looks like something Olivia of Fresh Modesty would wear." So I guess this is my copycat Olivia outfit. 

I thank you all for your encouraging words last post. It really has been a crazy bezerk year! 
I'm happy to say that our visit to a local church Sunday was encouraging, it was nice to see a lot of young people at church. It sometimes seems like the younger generation is running out of church with no looking back. I was listening to a podcast sermon last week and the pastor referred to the young people of the church as "wet cement." I loved that analogy! But it's also a great reminder not to let the wrong kind of people out footprints and impressions in our "cement." 

  It's so weird right now, I feel like I'm in a totally different place, excited to see what God has in store for me. Life is a constant ebb and flow of different experiences, people and feelings. I know some 
people aren't too keen on change, but I find I rather like it. 

“Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different...”
