My Desk/Vanity Tour

So I finally got a new desk! My old one had a lot of storage which I liked but it was too bulky. I wanted something simple and the Metro Collection desk from Walmart is perfect:)

I loved that it is wood and metal. It gives it an urban vibe to it and can be dressed to match about any theme you like.

There is a brid’s eye view. Even without hanging the mirror, I still have lots of room for my laptop, books, planner, or whatever else I’m doing.

On the right side of the desktop I have a jewerly holder which I got from Target. It holds all my necklaces and my most used bracelets. I also have a couple nick nacks that I like to keep close by. Oh and that is a picture of my and husband by the way:)

On the left side I keep a glass/rose gold desk organizer (also from Target) with my eyeshadow palettes, brushes, and some other products that I use everyday. The elephant lamp my husband bought for me for Christmas last year, it is from Walmart. The big rosegold canister is actually a candle holder with a coconut candle inside (also from Walmart). And the picture behind my lamp is something my little sister made for me:) Itis of sea turles and coral. I just haven’t had a chance to hang it or my mirror up yet.

So I obviously need some lesssons on organization… I bought organizers but they didn’t fit.. I don’t mind the chaos though;) Obviously I store the rest of my makeup here. There’s probably more here than one person should need but thats okay;) I keep my smaller palettes, eyeliners, lipliners, lipsticks, primers etc…… here.

The right side drawer is a drastic change;) I keep my most used stationary stuff here. My planner (to the left), a cute notebook for blog ideas, sticky notes, lots of sticky notes! And I guess I thought it would be a good place to store my car air fresheners here too.. (?) Who knows. haha

I also have cat washi tape… isn’t it cute??!!! 😀 I washi taped some of my eyeshadow brushes, nail polishes, and single eyeshadows with it:)

That is it! I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe got to know me a little bit better. Maybe you even got inspired to decorate you desk/vanity:) If you have any questions about where I got anything or prices let me know!

No. I Don’t Wear Panty Hose.

Scared is an understatement.
This Sunday will be my first day at a new church, in a new town, and my first day on the job as pastor’s wife… Well, associates pastors wife but after a month or two pastors wife.

Anyways.
I can handle new people. I have met more new people in the past year than I have my entire life. New towns I can handle too. I live in a town that is literally the width of the gas station and post office. But being a pastor’s wife….. that is something new.
I have only really known 2 pastors wives throughout my life. One was my teacher in highschool, and the other I never talked to. So it is safe to say I have absolutely no idea what people expect out of a pastors wife. And trust me when I say I have done my research! I have read countless blogs and yahoo answers on it. But that doesn’t make up for the lack of experience I have.
And yes I know that pastor’s wives are supposed to be the “supreme being of godliness“, always cooking casseroles and remembering names and sitting on the front row taking notes. But honestly… I hate casseroles. I’m awful with names. And when I sit on the front row I literally pay no attention to the message (I’m paranoid about people sitting right behind me:P).
So in that aspect, I have already “failed” at becoming a pastor’s wife. (Did I mention I never wear panty-hose? I think there is this prejudice about pastor’s wives wearing panty hose.. maybe that is just me though haha) I don’t have much guidance, experience, or know how.

The night we first met the pastor of this new church, his wife looked at me and said the church isn’t expecting anything out of me, except to love my husband and support him.
Now that I can do.
I won’t try to act like I have it all together and put on a front. But I will try to love as Christ loved. To minister to the hurting like He did. To feed the hungry and to love the unlovable.
Because I don’t want others to look at me and see an ordinary little ole pastors wife. But as a christian. Living a christian life is something every saved person is supposed to do, not just the Pastor’s wife.
So this upcoming week I will try to stop setting standards for myself, and just be myself. I will try to stop thinking about how other’s will see me and start seeing other’s how Christ sees them. I’ll quit questioning why God chose me for this role and start seeing ways in which this role as pastor’s wife was made for me.

June Favorites 2016

I feel like I haven’t posted in forever… the past two weeks have been crazy. But a good crazy:) God has been showing me and Tj the steps He wants us to take little by little and now that I can see what He had planned, everything just fits together:) I will write about it soon but for now, let me show you some things I have been loving!

I got this study at Lifeway and have been sooo excited about it! Ever since I read Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers,  the story of Hosea has interested me. I didn’t buy the videos to go with the book, but I can do the study just fine without them:)

I bought this to wear at work because my face gets sooo oily when I’m working, and I wanted something that’s medium to full coverage. This bb cream is awesome i love the texture, finish, and wear of it. The only downside is that it doesn’t have spf in it:/

I also got a lippie stick in the shade Aquarius. This is the most beautiful cool toned nude I have:) I’ve gotten alot of compliments on this color. I love it because it goes great with any look.

Me and Tj watched this movie last week but I really loved it:) This is a Christian movie about a young man in the foster care system who is trying to get away from his past. I really recommend this movie especially if you are a young adult or for a youth group:)

That’s all for my June favorites! Summer has gone by way too fast:/ Hopew July will go by slower! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!

My Struggle With Being A Hypocrite

When God put it on my heart to start this blog. I doubted Him. Why would He ask me to write about living for Him and being set apart?  It feels so hypocritical sometimes as I post a devotional. When I write about being godly and how its okay to live a Christian lifestyle, I’m reminded how I used to watch wordly tv shows and laugh at things I shouldn’t around my friends. I think about how some of my family members might read my post and think I’m a hypocrite for the words I type. A lot of times Satan will creep inside and remind me of my sin and just how insufficient I am. It can be really depressing! I’m sure if you’re saved that you have felt the same.

Recently I have been studying the book of Hosea. Hosea was a prophet of God in the Old Testament. God told him to go and marry a prostitute named Gomer (That poor girl… what a terrible name!).

God told Hosea to do that to show Israel that they didn’t deserve God’s love. They couldn’t do anything so dirty that He wouldn’t love them. Because He chose to love them. Hosea chose to love Gomer, not because she deserved it. But because he chose to! I can imagine that Gomer felt very hypocritical at times,  especially if she changed from her old way of life. Why would Hosea choose her after everything she had done? Wouldn’t others see her as a hypocrite? I’m sure some did, there’s always going to be those to see only the bad. But Hosea didn’t.

Thankfully,  because of the blood of Christ, God looks at me and see’s the good, the potential. And it’s the same with you.

Even though there will be times that me and you will fail, and slip back into sin; Remember that God sees our hearts, our intentions and our struggles. But the world sees our works, our words, and our actions.

Romans 6:6 “Knowing this,  that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed,  that henceforth we should not serve sin.”

Romans 6:12-13 “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive, from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”

Sometimes I do feel hypocritical. Just know that I write for myself to be encouraged and edified, just as much as I do for others. I’m thankful I’m able to see the things I can work on, not only so I can become a better witness, but also because it shows me that even though I mess up, God still chooses to love me.
