1 cup water (for cooking rice)

1 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 cup Mexican cheese blend, Shredded

Cut off the tops of peppers; discard seeds and membranes, chop peppers in half length wise.

Cook the whole green peppers, uncovered in boiling water for about 5 minutes; invert to drain well.

*in a separate pot put water bring to boil add rice cook until rice is soft – unless using precooked rice like I do.

In a skillet cook ground beef, onion till meat is browned and onions are tender.

Add tomatoes, paste, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire, and rice.

Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat/rice mixture. Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet lined with foil.

His Grace Is Sufficient

As I laid in bed this morning listening to these little voices build and imagine and play in the hallway together, just to be near where I am ❤️ I was overcome with total gratitude for this amazing gift of motherhood and stewardship of these tiny hearts, hands and feet They absorb every breath I breathe, every thought I think and every word I speak.

They long to be near us always, in the quiet moments and in the crazy ones.

They watch us, watch ourselves in the mirror and learn how to think and talk about their own bodies.

They watch us show kindness to strangers and learn to be kind, always and to everyone.

They watch us love our husbands, their daddy and hero, and watch him love us, and learn what a healthy and strong marriage should look like and what they can expect from a man.

They watch us praise the Lord and sing to Him, read of Him and act as He would approve, and they learn to love Him.

They listen as We lift others up, speak acceptance and love into their lives, and they learn to pour their hearts into others, to be empathetic.

They watch and listen as we contain, or try our hardest to contain 😉, our temper, our anxiety, our depression, and learn to be strong and steadfast and a fighter-despite their weaknesses.

They watch us fall to our knees and depend on Him for our strength, and learn to be arrows, to turn to Him in times of need.

They watch us press on, work hard and talk about passion and purpose and dreams and things that seem impossible without faith, and they learn to have faith, to dream BIG, and that they can accomplish anything they want with God and mommy in their corner ❤️

We are more than just a mom, We are warriors, an example, a steward. And they are more than our beautiful children, they are daughters and sisters and someday mothers in Christ, Sons, Brothers and someday Fathers in Christ, they are arrows in the Lords army, they are the future.
So I will keep sharing my weaknesses and my fight, so they can see where I draw my strength ❤ And I urge you to share yours too, continue to lead by example and we need to remember as mommas, that even when we think they aren’t watching and maybe think we aren’t leading, they are, we are, always.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.- 2 Corinthians 12:9

Happy Mothers Day week to all my other arrow raisers, arrow sharpeners and arrow buffers 😉 whether you’re a mom of your own arrows or a significant role model for the arrows in your life, you are raising the future ❤️ Thank you for all you do and for all the beautiful “mothers” in my girls life, I could not raise these warriors without you!  

Oven Nachos – Fix Approved

If your kiddos are anything like mine they are CONSTANTLY asking for food. As if I don’t feed them? As if they didn’t just eat an apple, a sandwich, a bowl of cereal, a string cheese, 5 strawberries and about 15 other things…as if.

Well, this afternoon they were begging (literally begging) me for something MORE to eat! ……I of course said “drink a glass of water and wait 5 minutes” I mean, I don’t want to raise over-eaters but I also don’t want to not feed a hungry child! So while they waited their 5 minutes, I glanced at the clock… It was 525pm!  And I don’t know about you, but if I haven’t started dinner, let alone started thinking about dinner, yet at 525pm, all may as well be lost and we can call our very favorite delivery kid from the friendly neighborhood Bellagios or we can expect to pull all our hair out dealing with starving children who somehow morph into an angry pack of screaming wolves if dinner is served after 630pm!

So I had to think quick to avoid the slippery slope that is take out, not to mention the poor kids were totally right to be hungry, it was dinner time!

Open the freezer, HAAAALELUJAH! Ground Turkey to save the day…and the rest is history 😉

Oven Nachos are the quickest, healthiest, tastiest most incredible thing I have up my sleeve. All you need is:

  • 1.5 lbs Ground beef
  • 1 Serving of my salt and sugar free Taco Seasoning
  • 1 can of Organic Black Beans
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese of your choice (I use mexican blend)
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • 2-3 Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Diced Onion
  • 1 Diced Avocado
  • 1 small can Sliced Olives (for the kids 😉 )
  • Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
  • Tortilla Chips (I use whole grain chips from Costco)

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 375*

Step 2:

Brown the ground turkey in a skillet, add taco seasoning and cook through. Add half the diced onion to the meat and simmer for 3 minutes.

Step 3:

Spread the can of black beans over the bottom of your oven safe casserole dish

Step 4:

Top the beans with the cooked meat

Step 5:

Top with Cheese

Step 6:

Place on middle rack of oven for 12 minutes or until cheese is melted

Step 7:

While cooking, dice up veggies

Step 8:

Upon removing from the oven, top with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, avocado, and olives

Serve while hot with greek yogurt/sour cream and tortilla chips!

 

Enjoy and repeat often!

 

Spread Joy, Stop Hate

My heart is breaking for the state of our country and the lives that are continuously lost on our soil in addition to all the lives out on the line and lost to fight for our freedom. We are blessed and surrounded with strong and brave men and women who fight for us to be able to go to movies, schools and dance clubs and live our lives safely and independently…yet there are terrible acts of hate taking place right here in our towns, Trying to push us into fear and doubt and submission. We can lock up our guns, we can ban them from the market, we can bar our windows and add metal detectors and give away the freedoms that those brave men and women are so selflessly fighting FOR. That might work for a while, it might make a dent, or it might not, it WILL push the hateful people to new means of harming others and to the black market (which is where most of their weapons are purchased illegally anyway) , it WILL take away decent people’s rights to protect themselves and others, It WILL instill a sense of distrust in our government and their ability to fairly protect us without taking away our rights, and it WILL NOT stop HATE. I am not saying I know what the “right” answer is, I am not saying I 100% agree we shouldn’t adjust some laws and regulations. What we should do: we should choose to spread joy, lead with love, and teach respect, responsibility and safety to our youth. We should speak with kindness to ALL people types at ALL times, we should show compassion and acceptance and humanity to all those who cross our path. WE are raising the generation who will run this country into the ground or out of it…We have the power to fight hate but the strongest weapon we have is not a gun or a bomb, it’s our words and our actions. Do not tolerate bullying, teasing, violence, foul speech or exclusion or others. Teach joy, love, kindness and acceptance, fight against making more monsters and towards making more heroes. People turn to hate and destruction out of fear and exclusion, don’t be a part of creating that environment. Be a part of eliminating it. I am not so naive to say that joy & love can fix all our problems, but they can lead us in the direction we need to go.

Faith and Fitness

I am passionate about faith.

I am passionate about fitness.

Well actually I am passionate about a lot of things….

Pizza. Wine. Stretchy Pants. Uggs. Sweaters that fit like blankets. Family. Friends. Coffee. Holistic Health. The Oregon Coast…the list goes on and on…BUT… None of it matters without my Faith and my Fitness.

Faith is one of my gifts.  Over the past 10 years I have developed a pretty rock solid relationship with God. I believe in Him and His plan above all else. I have been through hard times, ups and downs, and He is always a constant and never-failing source of my positive thinking.  I know beyond a doubt that my relationship with Him is the most important relationship in my life. I love my husband more every day than I did the day before.  I love children more than any human could ever fully understand…BUT God gets it.  Because that is how HE. LOVES. US.

-MIND BLOWN-

I mean, once I got that, my Faith was solidified, like, poured in a vat of cement and connected to my heart FOR-EV-ER!

Don’t get me wrong, the enemy still tries to attack that cement with a sledgehammer but thanks to my relationship with Christ, he can’t touch my heart or my Faith. And I am pretty sure he hates that 😉

<img src="1ba68a52e10c9495ee863594cc1f5239.jpg" alt="1ba68a52e10c9495ee863594cc1f5239.jpg">

Thanks to my faith in The Lord, I can pursue my purpose in this world with complete and total certainty that I am right where I am meant to be.

HE MAKES IT VERY CLEAR WHEN I AM NOT. 😉

After much prayer, lots of trials and many failures – all of which led to enormous lessons that I use to this day – I am finally in my purpose.

I am talking HEART ON FIRE – CRAZY HAPPY – WILLING TO WORK FOR FREE – DO IT EVERY MINUTE YOU CAN – purpose.  Do you know what that feels like?

For me my purpose is helping others accomplish their dreams, or rather figure out what the heck their dream and purpose is, and then help them achieve it! Help them get time back for themselves!  Take time to focus on themselves! Accomplish things they never even knew they could! Sounds pretty cool right?  YEAH. IT. IS.

And you know what is at the center of all of it?

Health and FITNESS! A fit body, mind and soul…Start with the body and the others will follow – seriously!

Doing something you never thought your body could do = AMAZING FEELING.

Losing weight you never thought you could lose = AMAZING FEELING.

Wearing a size you never thought you would wear = AMAZING FEELING.

Overcoming an addiction you never thought you would = AMAZING FEELING.

ARE YOU SEEING THE COMMON DENOMINATOR HERE? dO YOU SEE WHY i LOVE MY JOB?

 

Once you accomplish something, 1 SMALL thing, that you never thought you could…You start to believe you can accomplish another one, and another one, and another one…and pretty soon you are blowing your own damn mind! Fitness is so crucial to a healthy life and an active body and mind.  Fitness.

Faith and Fitness.

 

So my advice to you:  BLOW. YOUR. DAMN. MIND.

 

If you aren’t sure how, well hell, that’s what I am here for 😉
