A book by Emily Freeman
Simply Tuesday Introduction from Emily P Freeman on Vimeo.
The world around us values those who hustle and produce. I am wired this way. Often I feel insignificant, less valuable, when I am not producing BIG things. Striving to be the best mother and wife, running a profitable business, achieving goals, even maintaining a clean, tidy home in the mist of chaos. This are the things that give me a sense of worth.
Can we embrace our smallness? Yes. It is time to embrace our small-living moments. Emily challenges readers to embrace Tuesdays, our most normal day. Tuesdays remind us who we are, that we are human.
“Small is an invitation to participate in something greater than ourselves.” (pg. 29)
When we are made small, God is made bigger. Simply stopping to sit on a bench for a sweet chat with your neighbor or taking time in those little moments of wonder you see in your child’s eyes… It is in these small moments that we must live.
Grab a copy of Simply Tuesday and take enjoy a few small moments of your own.

A magazine for bloggers
“Belong Magazine is designed to celebrate the art and community of blogging. In all that we do, our mission is to inspire women to use their passions for a purpose in crafting and sharing honest words, images and ideas virtually to be life-giving and encourage others. It is our desire for women to know that they are enough, their voice matters, and that they have a place. They belong.”
I received a free copy of Belong Magazine at this year’s Allume conference. First of all, I was excited to dig into the pilot issue because it was beautifully printed. Clean, crisp with vivid green succulents on the cover. Opening any magazine I immediately begin scanning for recipes, though I knew this was a magazine for bloggers, I did just this. Ahhh… Yes! The pilot issue includes a recipe for Caramel Apple French Toast Casserole and a Strawberry Marshmallow Dip! I also enjoyed Styled Sophistication, an article on blog styling as well as What is Blogging, which focuses defining what blogging really is.
I am looking forward to purchasing my copy of Belong Magazine, Issue #1, which began shipping this week! This magazine is also available for digital download.
Who We Might Become
A worship album by my friend Kirby Kaple
We moved to Georgia in 2008 and quickly became friends with the lovely, talented Kirby Kaple. She and her husband Rob showed us Southern hospitality at its finest. I had never heard a Southern drawl until I met this sweet girl!
Kirby led worship at our church while I was pregnant with our son Jude. Our life was filled with her beautiful voice as we worshipped. As soon as our son began to talk, I could see his heart for Jesus and his special love for our friend Kirby. Somehow I know that he could hear her voice from inside me singing, “He loves us..”
Our friends have since moved. Kirby is working with House Fires a worship collective out of Atlanta, Georgia AND she has been working passionately to write and produce her very own album, Who We Might Become. Her words are heart felt, as her music so genuinely draws me closer to the King.
