Hello! I’m Lesly, and I’m so glad you stopped in for a visit. I started this blog almost three years ago in August of 2016, because I needed a creative outlet. I needed something to call my own as I struggled in the life of a stay at home mom. Doing it from my sticky kitchen table and reaching out into my community is how I do that.
I am very passionate about health, beauty, and thriving in business. I love helping women do the same! In my posts these passions come to life.
Just a girl?
I usually start off with “I’m just a girl trying to ____ and ____ ….” because lets face it, writing about ones self is never easy. But I am not just a girl, just like you are not just a girl.
We are women with influence and purpose, passion and power! We are here to improve our lives and the lives of those around us with acts of love, kindness, integrity and grace. No act of kindness is to small – specially where our families are concerned.
No wife or mother is without means or purpose
Once there was a time I thought I had to do something amazing, break new records and brave new terrain to be somebody with purpose. In believing that, being a wife and mother was not enough to make the cut. That was the message I received from social media. I lived out that lie, unwittingly, until recently.
I had to apologies to my family for being so absorbed with finding my passion and purpose that I lost sight of their importance.
There is purpose in you
What I thought to be “purposeful” I had to act with purpose. But that gift is placed within me, as it is you, from God. It’s not by works and accomplishments that I am valid or loved. It is a gift God has freely given us – can we receive it?
Once I began accepting this amazing gift – I started to experience freedom from the expectations to act, achieve and hustle. Peace began to flow over me, my life and that of my family. Peace is slowly being restored, day-by-day, step-by-step, as I begin to receive the gift of absolute love from my Heavenly Father.
