Hey there!  I’m Kristie. Welcome to my journey of thought. img_20170128_145158

How it all started…

His Lilies of the Field holds a very deep and personal meaning for me. The name took birth in my mind several years ago when I was learning what it meant to rest for success. This idea of taking time to rest throughout my day ( I’m not referring to sleeping, although sometimes that’s exactly what this momma needs.) to obtain mental clarity; to function with purpose, to be efficient, to know true peace and to hear the important things through the chaos that life reigns down was something I desperately wanted but didn’t know how to obtain.

Our Rollercoaster Ride…

My family has been through it’s shares of ups and downs. Including several moves, even across country multiple times, job losses, nearly losing my life at age 30 (Read the full story here My Story: The Face of Hope), and having 3 babies all in the span of 9 years of marriage.

I was tired. Tired of feeling like a hamster on the wheel running breathless and getting nowhere. I felt directionless, frustrated, exhausted, unproductive and anxious. This Bible verse kept showing up in my life…

 Matthew 6:28 “And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin…”.

Hamster NO more…

It was then I knew I needed to jump off the hamster wheel and learn just exactly what it meant to to be a lily of the field. It was time for me to learn how to grow and flourish where I have been planted no matter what I’m facing or where I’m living I needed to learn how to turn my petals to the sun. Soak in the rays and simply blossom. Why don’t you come along with me to soak in the sun and blossom too!
