Over coffee.

With all this crazy snow weather I thought we'd have a coffee date. Shall we?

If I were having coffee with you I'd tell you that God was doing some amazing things in my life.. I've mentioned before that Leon and I were getting an apartment in April but plans have certainly changed. At Church last Sunday The Lord told both my Mother in law and I separately  that He wanted us to stay together for one more year.. We both didn't want to hear it and in fact His words were ignored for most of the day until I just blurted out and said "Do you guys think we're actually done here?"  And that's all she wrote. We all talked and ended with happy tears.. The Lord told me that I still have so much to learn from these wonderful ladies and they still have things to learn from me and by the end of this year blessings will flow for all of us.. I don't know about you but by the end of this year I'm believing for a house! I mean why not? God wants us to dream big!

I'd also tell you that God has been leading me to start a mommy's group.. If you have been following me long enough you'd know that at the momento Leon and I are a one car family.. It has been super hard especially with an active toddler.. I've been so upset recently because I see all these moms putting their kids in gym classes and mommy and me classes and see that in reality it's just not possible for us right now with Leon working all the time. So I've decided I'd going to start my own mommy group! So excited about that. If any of you mama's, nanny's or whosoever has a great idea and name idea for a mommy group please feel free to share. I plan on starting it in April so I have one month to plan!

If I were having coffee with you that I've started the process of writing my first E-book devotional! My heart is just so full of excitement and I'm so excited to finish it for all of you to read. It's going slow at the moment because I'm learning to let go and let God. I'm learning to not rush through it just to get it done but only go to it when God gives me the inspiration to do so. I want this devotional to be His letter to you and not my letter to you.

I'd tell you how I've been thinking about the influence conference a lot lately and all the beautiful women who I'd love to meet there.. I honestly can't tell you how bad I want to go but I've also made the decision recently that I'd only go if donations were made. You see, I've made a commitment since day one into blogging that I would never put it first before my family.. Even though I have failed in that area a few times I try hard to keep to it and I feel as though if I were to take money out of our account to save for the conference I'd be stealing from Evelynne.. I want to put as much as possible away for her and her future..


If I were having coffee with you, I'd tell you how much I can't believe that the little girl walking running around my house, reading books and slowly putting words together is the same baby I sobbed over when I met her for the first time! Is her 15 month update really coming up next week??

This winter has been the craziest winter ever!! Just snow after snow after snow and then we get rain after rain after rain and then ice! It's been a hard winter folks but a plus side is I get to watch my man shovel the the driveway! He's sooo cute when he works.
This is what I would tell you if I had the pleasure of having coffee with you this morning. 
What would you tell me?


  1. Amazing coffee date! If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that my morning cup of coffee yesterday ended my son in the ER than ambulanced to a burn unit for a large 2nd degree scalding burn in his little fingers! The irony of our coffee date! We are all good though, and as traumatic as yesterday was, God put people strategically in my life to get through the day yesterday!

  2. I wish we lived closer sweet friend. I would love to come to your mommy group!

  3. After I read the first sentence, I stopped and went to get a cup of coffee before coming back. ;-) this is such a great post though. And I am glad you are staying with your mother-in-law a little longer. I'll be praying for a house for you at the end of the year. And I'm excited for your devotional book! I'll be praying for that too. If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I am so tired of this winter and my job and just being stuck. That I am ready for a change in my life and I think warmer weather would be a great start.


  4. I love your insights on this. Very wonderful. Thank for sharing this with us.

  5. Oh Heather, how I really wish I could sit down for a cup of coffee (actually for me it would be a coke..can't stand coffee) with you! I would tell you that you should TOTALLY go to the Influence Conference, I would love to meet you in person. I am wanting to go this year too. I'm excited to read your ebook! That's exciting! And then I would ask for your prayers .. I just found out over the weekend my best friend is moving and my heart is completely breaking. :( It's so hard to let go of amazing people .. Anyways, i just love your blog and thanks for the chat! :)

  6. If we were having coffee I would be telling you about how sad I am that my best friend lives 8 hours (by car) from me and that she went home today. I would tell you how much I dread going home to my empty house tonight. I am so very excited for you though. God is working through you in an amazing way. =)


I love hearing from you!!!!

I try to respond to every comment so make sure you come back. Much love xoxo
