Happy Snow Day!!!

Well… you know. Ice Day.
I don’t know about you, but I needed this SO badly.

Starting Thursday night we spent the next 3 days leading worship at a DNOW in Arlington. I just love taking a step back from the planning portion of my brain and use the small creative portion to just worship. It was so good for my soul.

I hope that your weekend was relaxing & fun & that you are getting the chance to relax and do amazing things today!

You Make Me BraveSource

I’ve had this song on repeat for the past week. It’s not like I hadn’t heard it a million times already, but for some reason, this week it was fresh. It’s like something happened in me and I was hearing it with new ears.

I’ve never considered myself not to be brave, and by the worlds standards, I think that I’m probably very brave. I graduated college with a 10 hour a week job and starting a new business. The last day of work at DBU, I got a phone call asking to interview at Pantego Bible Church because they had an opening for an Events Assistant. I was floored because up until that moment, I had no idea how I was going to pay rent at my new apartment.

God provided.

I went in for an interview and was asked to come back for a second one. I met with the Events Director and was already ready to start! Later in the interview I was asked to consider a different position within the church as the Administrative Assistant to Worship & Media. I honestly didn’t know what to say…Events was my thing. I wanted to do them all the time, but most people don’t know that I actually went to school for Music Business. So, there was still a small part of me that was passionate about leading others in worship. I accepted the position in the Worship Department and have never looked back.

God provided.

These past two years I have grown tremendously as an artist and in knowledge of media and production. I have learned things that I would have never dreamed & a lot of it plays a huge role in where Borrowed & Blue has landed. Over the past two years I have also watched a huge dream – with small expectations- bloom. Bloom into a business that is built on relationships and showing brides, grooms and their families Christ love on one of the most important days of their lives.

God provided.

The one thing that is consistent in all of this is that every time God provided, I felt a tug that lead me to seeing the amazing things He can do. I am so happy and eager to say that I am feeling that tug again. It started a few months ago when I felt a need for a Home Group at Pantego that catered to my life stage. I wanted a place that people who had graduated college, were married or single and had not yet had kids, would feel plugged in. So, I acted and this morning I  met 22 people that feel the same way.

God provided.

There is no better feeling than when you know that you are following Christ. I am so eager to get to know each and every person and just do life together. I think it is so important to surround yourself with people that can encourage and cover you with love.

All of that to say, that being brave doesn’t mean you have to start your own business or uproot your life and move to a different state. It means whatever you feel the Lord is calling you to.

“You make me brave.”

This is how I felt waking up Friday morning.

IMG_9338

Yep. & I’m pretty sure I did a little happy dance as I rolled over and soaked up the most amazing sunshine that was pouring through my windows. I mean….I feel like it has been at least a month since we’ve seen good sun like this.

I have no pictures from this weekend & I am not mad at all. For me, that means that I was soaking up some sweet moments with friends, family and Jackson.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Happy New Year!! I am so excited for 2015 and cannot wait to see what happens.

These past two weeks have been a little crazy, but I made sure to take some time off from work and Borrowed & Blue just to give my body and brain a rest. I do have some awesome news, but first, let’s recap!

2015-01-05_0002

First was our Family Service & then Candlelight

I loved that Tim invited the Worship & Media Teams to come ring in the New Year with us. They mean so much to Pantego Bible Church and it was so great to get to celebrate this past year and dream about 2015.

IMG_9244_2

This is the image I posted for 2015 & it could not have been said any better.

I have huge dreams for 2015 and I’m hoping it’ll include things like:

– A brand that speaks to my brides
– A simple, new website
– Buying a house (ekkkkk!)
– Bigger and better things for my couples

&& so much more, but I can’t give it all away at once 😉

I encourage you to take this year and make it your best & not because Instagram tells you are, but because you were completely yourself and succeeded the way you wanted to.

Happy 2015 everyone!

Sometimes you have post like last weekend and sometimes you have ones that are short and sweet. For me this either means two things; I was so in the moment that I didn’t have time to take pictures (which is never a bad thing) or that I was so relaxed and had a weekend of a little R&R. This was not the case for this past weekend, for if I had taken a lot of pics, it would’ve been a lot of pictures of traffic and last minute Christmas shopping – you can’t say anything, you know we are all guilty of it at some point. hahah

As some of you know, my grandmother suffered from a stroke almost three weeks ago. This past Tuesday we drove to Lubbock to have her transported to a rehab facility in Mansfield so she could be close to family. She has been quite the trooper and we have seen huge amounts of improvement! Praise the Lord!

She has a roommate named Lucy and she is quite the hoot. Every time I step foot in her room I always walk out laughing – and so does Nana. Since she has a long road of recovery ahead of her, I decided to keep up with some of the funny things Lucy says, so that when she is released we will have some funny memories to look back on. This is Round 1.

Have a very Merry Christmas!!

It’s officially December. Hallelujah. Just ignore the dumb weather outside and we can press on with Christmas decorations, music and parties! (oh the parties) This past weekend I did a whole lot of nothing. Considering we spent the whole week at the church decorating the stage for Christmas and preparing for Sunday, the weekend just felt like a good time to relax.

I forgot to get a picture of it once it was lit up, but I’ll be sure and get one this week 🙂

I also drew the winners for my Holiday Giveaway!! Thank you to everyone that participated!! Ladies, your packages are going in the mail today!!IMG_8906

Saturday night I met my youngest brother up at DBU for their Annual Choir Christmas Concert. Let’s just say I feel old. BUT this girl, on the conductors stand, did an amazing job!! I am so proud of her!IMG_8917

The concert was amazing, as always and made me miss being a pat of it.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!! It’s officially 6 days until race day!!
