my word, GIVE.

I love the start of a new year.
A clean slate, a new + fresh start.I loved having a coffee date with my husband this week as we talked about our goals for our family this year, which include: getting away just the two of us this spring, properly documenting our children’s growth through pictures, praying as a family for the missionaries + children we sponsor all over the world in a creative way, and finding a way to thank the hundreds of people who helped us get our babes home.I personally would like to read more/watch less tv, cook more, start running again…all the things that will last about 8 days then I’ll forget….

So instead of focusing on all the things I want to do, I wanted to spend some time praying and having a word for 2013.  I loved what Casey wrote about her word + what Beth wrote about her year theme.

after asking God what He wants me to focus on this year, the word that came up again and again was GIVE.  for a few reasons.  I feel like I’ve been GIVEN much this past year, and I love the scripture that says, “to whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48) I’ve been given way more than I ever deserve and I want to give back.

I want to GIVE time/energy/attention to those that matter to me most: my family + friends.  
I want to GIVE of my gifts + talents for Gods greater purpose & glory.  
I want to GIVE prayers + support to the missionaries & children we sponsor all over the world 
I want to GIVE my time and resources to those that truly need it.  
I want to GIVE my full attention to whoever I’m with.  to be fully present.  
I want to GIVE myself fully to the Lord + his purposes and plan for my life. 
” I give it all to you God, trusting that you’ll make something beautiful out of me”  – Nothing I hold onto by Will Reagan & the United Pursuit Band 
May 2013 be a year devoted fully to you + your purposes in our lives. 
Happy New Year Friends!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends
