    Finding Joy in the Holiday Season post Restoration

    Finding Joy in the Holiday Season post Restoration

    I am so excited to share with you today some of the ways I have found joy in the holidays post restoration. Prior to my Restoration Experience and before I decided to live my life for Jesus I was caught up in the idea that Christmas had to be a certain way and I spent many years, mad about Christmas. But the past few years and especially this year I have decided to look at Christmas from a different perspective! Slowing down, keeping it simple, inviting in my "family" and remembering the real reason we celebrate Christmas!

    She's an Overcomer

    Amy is the best friend and big sister you need in your life.As a Wife, Mom to 3 boys, and dance fitness instructor she used to wonder if there was more to life than just sleepwalking through one day and into the next; so busy she didn't even notice where she was going. After enduring multiple traumas, Amy began searching for something more. She found a passion for inspiring and empowering women and created the Worthy Heart blog, believing that everyone is worthy of love.

    Amy continued searching and learning and developed a four-step process to live The GOOD Life; focusing on God, Ourselves, Others, and Divine Happenings; which became the recently released The GOOD Life Journal. She firmly believes that by incorporating these four steps in our daily lives, everyone can have The GOOD Life and walk out their unique purpose boldly and confidently.

    Amy's Verses: 

    Jeremiah 29:11

    2 Corinthians 12:9-11

    Finding restoration from a life of shame

    Finding restoration from a life of shame

    Theresa Boedeker is likes to tell stories, write, and laugh, but not necessarily in that order. She has learned that God doesn't condemn us, but convicts and loves us. Mistakes, sins, and our past are used to restore us and others. She is passionate about encouraging women in their walk with God to stop believing lies, gain freedom from shame, learn their worth, how much God loves them, and not fear making mistakes. She enjoys people, flowers, being outside, and doing creative things.

     She blogs at TheresaBoedeker.com where she reminds women to remember the truth about themselves, their lives, and God's grace.

    What I know about Grace

    What I know about Grace

    This week I am taking a pause from sharing stories and digging a little bit deeper in the word Grace. What does Grace mean? How have I seen Grace in my own life and even a challenge for YOU to stop and see the Grace in your own life! 


    2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation the old has passed and the see the new has come. (CSB)

    Ephesians 2:8-9: For you are saved by Grace through faith and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift-not from workd so that no one can boast. 

    2 Corinthians 12:9: My grace is sufficient for you- my strength is made perfect in weakness. 

    "Grace is the beauty of form under the influence of freedom." Freidrich Schiller, German Philsopher.
