Engagement Sneak Peek

The long awaited day is here-our engagement pictures are back!! I just wanted to share a couple of my favorites, but there are so many incredible ones, I don't know how to narrow them down!

Our photographer, Carli Hobson is incredible. She has been so much fun to work with already, and she captured moments and pictures that were so us, and just our style. I am so excited she is going to get to share our special day with us in just a few months! If you're in or near Idaho, check her out!

While I am here, I just wanted to share with you guys something God has laid on my heart and shown me once again, how much I need Him and His grace in my life. 

"For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart." -Matthew 12:34-35-

I read this last night, and I've read it countless times, but last night, it struck my heart and made me step back, and prayerfully ask God what kind of words I am speaking. Am I speaking words to and about others that bring life, hope, and encouragement? 

Honestly, no. Not all the time. I am sinful and there are times my words are negative, harsh, and judgmental. I hate to admit it, but Satan doesn't want me to bring this to the light, He wants me to keep it hidden in my heart, never being dealt with. But like with all sins in our lives, once we bring them to the light, ask God for forgiveness and help to overcome our sinful nature, He will do a work in our heart and continue to purify us to make us more like His perfect son.

So for the rest of the week, I am committing to speaking words of life, of encouragement, of hope, and joy. Will you join me?
