Crash the Chatterbox:: A Review

Monday, October 12, 2015

A few good years ago I came across Elevation Worship, which led me to find Elevation Church.... which then led me to really love the things their pastor, Steven Furtick, had to say. I followed through the sermon series he did titled Crash the Chatterbox and when I found out that he wrote a book about the same thing I knew I had to read it. 
As expected, this book blew me away. It is one of those inspirational books that you find yourself nodding your head to while you're reading, just as if he was standing in front of you preaching out every word. I love how real the book is, and how it is not presented to us as a book that points fingers, but rather a book to encourage us and inspire us as we all try to crash the chatterbox. 
If you or someone you know has a hard time focusing on Gods voice above all the others, this book is absolutely for you/them. 

"My joy is not determined by what happens to me, but what Christ is doing in me and through me." - Steven Furtick, #crashthechatterbox

Coffee + Friends

Saturday, October 10, 2015

Holy moly, it has been way too long since I have posted! Wow.
Well Good Morning! It is Saturday, and I hope you are all having a lovely slow morning, drinking coffee and eating your favorite breakfast :)

I feel like I have so much to share with you since I have not posted in a long time. I've been pretty busy and have been really taking the time to soak up this beautiful fall season! I do have a lot to share with you, so keep your eyes out for a lot of new posts this coming week :)

For this mornings musings, since it's Saturday.. I just wanted to keep this post short and tell you all about my lovely friend Natalie over at A Tiny Traveler. I met Natalie at school my very first semester there. It didn't take us long to realize that we would be great friends. Natalie got married to the man of her dreams 2 weeks ago (yay!) and I am so blessed and thankful that she let me be a part of the day! 

Natalie was able to take a little trip to Pittsburgh this weekend and I was SO excited that we got to spend some time together. She is my absolute favorite person to have coffee and talk with. She has such a creative mind and I love hearing her heart for new projects and her love for collaborating with people. She really is great. So naturally, we got coffee first :) I took her to one of my favorite places here in the Burgh', Tazza D'Oro. After spending time there catching up and waiting for the rain to stop.. we went to a little nature reserve to appreciate this lovely season and all it has to offer. Today was one of my most favorite days spent with one of my most favorite friends. I appreciate Natalie so so much and am entirely too blessed to have her in my life. 

(Sorry if these pictures are poor quality, they are from my phone.)

I hope that you all have a lovely Saturday. Make time to spend time with the people in your life who make you happy. The people who encourage you, and are there for you when you're in down in the dumps. Let those people know just how important they are to you :)

Happy Saturday!
