A Little About Me
I am the wife to an amazing husband after God's own heart who is currently completing his masters in special education. He pioneered a program at a local middle school for moderate to severe autism in his first year teaching! I am so incredibly proud of him. Together we are the Youth Pastors at a bilingual church called Church of God of Prophecy Madera where we are active in all kinds of ministries including: youth, music, teaching adult English classes, and even preaching on occasion.
God has recently blessed us with a miracle child after years of infertility!! Charlotte is so special to me and I praise God that He follows through on His promises. I will never take a second of the jouney of motherhood for granted!! I have recently quit my job to raise her and it is a definite step of faith for us. I am launching my online store Lovealee to support my dreams pf staying home with our child. God is so good and I will praise Him all of my days!!
What is "Lovealee"?
Lovealee Thoughts comes from my favorite scripture in Philippians 4:8 which says, "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." This scripture reminds me not to think on the negative things that my mind so easily wanders to, but instead to think on things that are lovely (love-a-lee) and pure. We all have those moments when our minds want to dwell on the ugliness all around us. We internalize things people say to us or ideas that are planted by the enemy, and that's why this scripture is so powerful and important. We can't let our minds wander off to negativity-town, but we need to train our minds to think on God and all the loveliness He brings. Even if God is not your thing, it still makes sense to focus your thoughts on positive things over negative things. It's important to have the right frame of mind in order to get through the rain fall of life's hardships. I pray that you learn to train your mind on things that are lovely and pure and cast off those times of self-loathing and poor-thinking.
