This is one of my favourite photos of @lissymaher (taken in Burundi 2019) it is an incredible example of her heart for others! Today Melissa & I celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and I’m so honoured to have the privilege of doing life, family & ministry with her! Melissa is my best friend, an incredible mother to our 6 girls & the kindness, compassionate, & others focussed pastor I know. I love you Melissa with all my heart & praise God that 25 years ago we said “I do” to each other before the Lord and been on the greatest adventure since! #weddinganniversary#25thanniversary#blessedbeyondmeasure#loveyou#grateful

Enjoying the #coronalife - getting off work early at 3:30 pm which I’ve seldom done!! And now taking 10 minutes to enjoy my #bulletcoffee and bask in God’s sweet sun ☀️.
🍎 School time for #ourlittlemissanalynn 🍎
I love how ambitious and amazing her teacher is! Preschoolers are a tough group to teach in person let alone on Zoom..but Mrs. Pahinui goes above and beyond for her students! She kept thanking the parents for standing In the gap for her but we are thankful for her 🙏🏽 We love you Mrs. Pahinui 😘💜

THESE CARS ARE OURS!!!
Whoop whoop. No more car payments! Wow! Andrew and I now own both of our vehicles debt free!
(hehe, even Ava thinks WOAH!)
In August of 2018, my car was in need of a maintenance that cost more then its own value so we decided to make our first big purchase as a married couple. We based this decision off of what the future would look like (aka a family with kids). We chose a 2013 GMC Acadia. We got that paid off in May because we wanted the payments GONE! June of 2019, same thing happened with Andrew’s car.. it was getting sketchy to drive and wasn’t worth putting more money into it. We decided on a 2013 Ford Fusion. We still hated the car payments and wanted them gone ASAP.
As of this past weekend, we *OFFICIALLY* paid off the car and that leaves us with NO more car payments! It feels so good. Next up... student loans!!!!!!!!
Thankyou for sharing how important a mask is for containment - the scientific data is simple. Why would a person breath and cough without a barrier. Spread the word.

- 🇧🇷 ✔️ Hoje comemoro o meu aniversário isolada do mundo no interior do Brasil.
Celebrei nesta manhã , literalmente, carregando pedras e plantando várias plantas tropicais em uma das entradas do rancho! Aos poucos estou transformando este local ... estou plantando flores e plantas tropicais por todo lugar ( veja mais nos próximos posts de hoje ) .
Pensando bem esta temporada na zona rural do Brasil está sendo muito boa para meu corpo e minha alma ... como sofro de asma estou agradecida de estar fora de aglomerações - nesta época onde o mundo teme o #covid19 - e carregar pedras, tocar na terra , plantar , é uma terapia para a alma .
Me sinto completamente agradecida por estar diariamente em contato com a natureza e os animais, celebrando a vida - uma vida totalmente diferente - longe da civilização!
🇺🇸 ✔️ Today I celebrate my birthday isolated from the world in the interior of Brazil.
I celebrated this morning, literally, carrying stones and planting various tropical plants in one of the ranch entrances! Gradually I am transforming this place ... I am planting flowers and tropical plants everywhere (see more in the next posts today). Thinking well this season in rural Brazil is being very good for my body and my soul ... as I suffer from asthma I am grateful to be out of agglomerations - at this time when the world fears the #coronavirus - and to carry stones, touch the land, planting, is a therapy for the soul.
I feel completely grateful to be in daily contact with nature and animals , celebrating life - living a completely different life - far away from civilization! -

This is this strongest kid I know! Alex has had 13 seizures in his 4 years. He started having them right at 1 years old. At times it has been the scariest thing to witness because you can literally DO NOTHING but PRAY! Nothing triggers his seizures so he can have them at any given moment, at any part of the day. He’s had them in stores, at friends home, and the most scariest in the car while I’ve been driving and finding out he has them in his SLEEP! Yes. SCARY. We are extremely protective of Alex but our lives are really normal. His life is normal. I’ve had a ignorant person tell me that she didn’t think he had epilepsy because he didn’t “look” like anything was wrong with him 😏 I’ve also had people while in public try to tell me to put something in his mouth. HUGE NO NO 🚫 • Once a epilepsy patient goes into a seizure DO NOT under no circumstances put anything in their mouth. • Safely turn them on their side • DO NOT try to perform CPR
• DO NOT try to hold them down
• If at all possible calculate the time from which the seizure started to help EMS
• The hardest part even for me ✨REMAIN CALM✨
❤️WE LOVE YOU ALEX❤️ #epilepsywarrior#epilepsy#epilepsyawareness#epilepsypositivity#kidswithepilepsy#livingwithepilepsy#epilepsymom#eeg#epilepsyjourney#childrenwithepilepsy#familyvlog#outlife#alexstrong#superkid#strongkid#happy#familymemories#blessedbeyondmeasure#brother#siblinglove#motherhood
These 3 literally make my heart burst with pride! 🥰 Their laughter, craziness and sweet little personalities make everything else less important.
In the midst of all this drama, my little guys keep me laughing and loving more than I ever thought possible!
Yes, they can be a handful with their hyper, speedy, cheeky little selves but they're also my sunshine on a cloudy day, they're my pots of gold at the end of the rainbow and they make my world go round.
I am such a lucky mumma to have been blessed with these amazing little babies! ♡
Today the devastation really hit home for me as I felt tears well up in my eyes watching lines of families wrapping around Trinity Church who were waiting to feed their families . Currently I am working with Feeding Westchester to provide food to families in need . All day I made 4 separate donation pick ups from Stop and shop in New Rochelle then delivered these donations to 2 different Westchester County Churches. The lines of people waiting to collect groceries were absolutely heart breaking . As a community I urge people to do their parts to help people who really are struggling. In all of this chaos I'm truly blessed that GOD GOT ME ❤️#doourpart#beahero #volunteersrock #❤️#blessedbeyondmeasure #selflessness#weriseup#givebacktothecommunitythatgavetoyou#feedingwestchester
Today I graduated online 🙈😅 (Corona virus jyt als gespoil😩) but I got dressed cause those who know me, know that I'm very dramatic 😅. I'm so thankful for God's Favour on my life🙏 thankful for supportive friends and family🙌. The past 2 years was not easy but I made it👩🎓 so this pretty lil thang got her Honours in Leadership and Management😎🥰 and soooooooon she'll be doing her Masters🤞🙏 but all in God's time🙏
I put on mascara & washed my hair. It’s been awhile 😅
This quarantine has been much harder mentally than I thought it would be. So many emotions that I thought I’d taken care of really were just hiding deep down in there. They resurfaced. It’s made me truly have to sit down & face myself. Do more work mentally.
But it’s also been freeing. Being forced out of comfort, being forced out of my normal routine, losing my job, all of it has forced me to become more creative. Start using my brain. I was floating along in my routines & I didn’t know it. I’m blessed to have time to do the work.
I know how hard this is for so many. I feel it in every way. I hope we can all use this time to work on ourselves. In some way or another. There are so many programs, courses, apps that have SO MUCH to offer. For free! Especially at home exercises. Start reshaping the way you think, start moving, push yourself outside your comfort zone. Read. Do something.
Meditation has saved me. We’ve also decided to start #75hard. I know I have a lot of growing to do. For those of you that want to know more feel free to ask! Also check out @andyfrisella’s page, & his #75hard highlight. He’s the mastermind behind this program. Taking charge of my mental health helps me take charge of my physical health. .
One day at a time my friends. That’s all we can do. Breathe deeply, focus on what you can control, & do something to make YOU feel good about YOU.
I hope this helps in some small way.

I’m quarantined with 3 kids under the age of 13, I ain’t gonna fabricate & act as if it’s all good.... BUT am I the only one enjoying the break from this fast paced world! We are on a very limited schedule, there are days I’m not getting dressed... But I know it will all be a memory at some point.. We will all talk about this yrs to come, we’re living in a time that will go down in history for sure!
I’m just pulling the positive out of a unsure time..when your energy is good, good happens!
I’m a part of the crowd that this pandemic is really affecting. I recently just had a complete full schedule for my cleaning business & in a blink of a eye that has all changed. Im thankful to have another avenue of income with my hair& skincare business but trust & believe my bills are still comin & 3 kids will eat you out of house & home fast! On the other hand so thankful to have the kids to feed & the company to go back to when everything has passed! ❤️Thankful for my customers with both company’s!! This is the time to offer words of encouragement, lend a helping hand where needed & keep an open mind!
Use this time to do things you normally wouldn’t have time for..exercise,read,bake,journal, start a business(I got you😜), meditate, hike,get a hobby, catch up with friends!! Enjoy this break!!! Love you all & Im here for support if anyone needs it!

Today, I’m grateful for being apart of a community that makes a difference in a crisis! In the last 24 hours, I’ve raised over $400 for care packages for our nurses and doctors! I’m personally matching those donations and I’m so thankful that I can! Within our entire team, we’ve raised thousands and given thousands! My heart is bursting.
I hope you guys are staying healthy and helping your neighbor when able! #dogoodthings#blessed
Are we light years behind countries like Taiwan when you see foot sterilization, temperature monitors and masks. Other countries around the world look to the success of Taiwan.

☀️ It’s the most gorgeous day here. We’re spending our minutes in the pool and playing lawn games and counting our blessings. For those on the front lines, we ❤️ you. We 🙏 for you. Please stay safe and for those that can stay home, please do.
Remember, it’s always the darkest, right before the light. 🔦

Countries who discourage masks offer ZERO science to back their claims. Thank you for your research results.

How are you coping with STAYINGHOME 24/7 for the last 2 weeks? TBH I've being doing pretty well to my surprise. But I miss my church family and friends very, very much. My love language is physical touch, so my tank is running negative at the moment. During this time, however, I have been relying on my relationship with my Heavenly Father more than ever. I talk to him daily, pray to Him often, journal frequently and worship Him with all my heart. Without God, I would be having a very very difficult time during this uncertain season. I pray that He speaks to YOU and shows YOU how much He loves YOU! Yes, YOU! PRAYING!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For this is how much God loved the world-he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life. JOHN 3:16 TPT⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
