Three Ways Frozen’s Elsa Taught My Daughter to be a Strong Woman


Hi followers and friends. It’s December 1! Can you even believe it? I am still in shock over how fast this year has passed. Anyways…I have a fun post up on Red Tricycle about Disney princesses and how they influence our kids personalities. Would love some views, comments, and shares! This was a neat article to write and I really got to explore a more childlike side of myself while writing about my preschooler’s take on femininity based on Elsa’s character in Frozen. Hop on over and check it out. I promise that you’ll be super entertained!

As always, thanks for your faithfulness to read my words. I don’t take your loyalty for granted. I appreciate you!

Here’s a bit from the article:

“As you very well know, strong women are in dire need these days. The Elsas of the world need to rise up to their full potential and fearlessly behold their strength in the face of ice-cold circumstances. Take this challenge from my spunky three-nager and repeat these words out loud until you believe it: “I know I can!” Then sing your way into victory! (You know you want to.)”

What’s your fave Disney princess? Do you see some of her characteristics in yourself? Leave me a comment (after you have read the piece) and let me know for some good ol’ fashioned fun. 🙂 Happy Thursday!

Burn, baby, Burn


The time has come to burn again.

That cold night that stole your fire? It’s over.

I know you’re still recovering from the chill of what happened.

But recovery is a great place to warm back up.

A place to remember why you’re here.

Do you remember?


You’re here “to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you.” ( 2 Timothy 1:6)

You’re here to live ablaze!

Do the frost bitten memories still sting?

Sure they do.

But they don’t get to freeze you solid in fear.


The only thing that’s gonna break that brick of ice around your heart is the fire of God’s love.

And He says that there is still SO much left for you to do.

You have to believe it.

Let Him breathe onto the dormant embers that lie within your soul.

He longs to ignite your passions, your dreams, and your hopes once again.

Go ahead and enter the flames.

Just burn, baby.
