I'm all smiles. I'll be away for Dyslexia Training on Thursday & Friday, while my sub enjoys the sugared up 7 year olds after Halloween. If that's not something to smile about then I don't know what is! * On another note, how stylish are these polarized sunnies from @warbyparker The neutral frame goes with just about everything. You can even have them made into RX glassess starting at $95. Try them on at home or visit the new Fort Worth store located in @Westbendfw (This isn't a sponsored post. I just really love Warby Parker.)

First time wearing my @dwellandslumber outside of the house. I had youth leader training all day today starting this morning at 9am and I needed to both look good and be comfortable. (Shocker, those two don’t always go together.) Gotta admit, I wondered if the moment I walked in, someone would ask if I was wearing my pajamas because that’s all I’ve ever worn them as (and yeah, it was what I wore to bed last night). Anyway, I knotted my new Blush cocoon, threw it together with leggings and my favorite leopard moccasins and killed it. So watch out world, now that I’m confident enough wearing my dresses as tunics, my fall/winter wardrobe has a whole new vibe!

“Vulnerability” Vulnerability is only true vulnerability when you put it all out there; not just the parts that look good. { even the things you are too embarrassed/ashamed to admit you struggle with} I’m not saying that you have to be vulnerable with the world like I am (I’m called to do this). But just because you don’t tell anyone about what you hide behind closed doors, tears that you wipe away before anyone can see - doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist, it only means you don’t deal with it ( you push it down). We aren’t mean’t to this life alone - God is with us and has placed people in your life to come along side and help you. •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• It’s uncomfortable (at first). It’s Humbling. It’s Brave. It’s FREEDOM -> from the things that hold us in captivity (telling us to hide our weakness). Vulnerability is STRENGTHS finest hour ( it’s not weakness but strength to be vulnerable). •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• The more I trust God and those He placed in my life to help me; the more FREE I get from fear, shame, anger, hurt, and so many more things that I’ve held in for way too long! I was so wrong when I believed that I would be weak to need help. I have never felt more strong , then when I admit that I’m struggling with something or that a situation is difficult for me. •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• Fear of telling people you are struggling/ asking for help is the first step and action to getting freedom in that area. The moment I reached out for help was the moment I believed I would come out a conqueror. •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• •• The word of God is to encourage you and strengthen you, but if you continue to go it alone you will continue to stay the same. The Word says “ Iron sharpens Iron” -> not 1 iron sharpens itself = there had to be more than one iron! Proverbs 27:17 (amp). >>>>>>>> continued in comments
