So excited as we gear up and get ready for one of our favourite programs @mycitycareyql, the Cinderella Project.
For the past 4 years we as a community and as a church have helped students celebrate the milestone achievement of graduation. It’s always humbling and heartbreaking as we hear story after story of students and families who have overcome adversity to get to where they are today and we get the honour and privilege of being invited to play a small part of their story.
It’s exciting to see the local program grow and reach beyond our city into others communities across Alberta and *spoiler alert* even reach outside of Canada in a few short years. So excited for this year and what we get to do 💕 for the people we will get to meet and lives we will get to be a part of. #grateful#wegettodothis#mycitycare#myvictory

Having a great day 2 @c3conference! Can’t believe #wegettodothis ministry thing with all our incredible @livingchurch people. It’s amazing and life altering and legacy shifting and game changing. But the best is getting to do this with these two and my @ambarthatp. Serving Jesus and people is so much better when we do it as a family. I’m so grateful for the opportunity these kiddos get to have by being PKs of LC. God has big things for them, and they already have huge plans and dreams for serving Jesus in big ways in their future! We’ve found that putting them in environments that are bigger than them, where they can grow and see beyond, is a crucial part of helping them catch that vision and solidify their hearts call. Ministry friends, your ministry is their ministry and they are your first ministry. Don’t discount the occasions where you can bring your people with you. They are not just along for the ride, they are serving and loving and leading alongside you. Invest in them first...speak life over the things they are passionate about...believe in them fully...give them the chances. I’m telling you, the return fruit will be more than you could ever imagine! They’ll see things bigger, believe for more, and do things even greater when we lay the foundation for them to build on! #ministryfamily#futurechurchleaders#churchnerds#myheart#buythemallthemerch#theycouldlovekanyeinsteadofjesus#jesusisgreaterthankanye@eastonbarth@mckinleyjewel

Looking for a way to spread kindness? How about sending a birthday card to this WWII veteran from Marlow, OK? Recil is turning 93 years old on 4/17 and LOVES getting mail. His address is 2684 North Highway 81, Marlow, OK 73055. Let's do it! #bekind#wegettodothis#kindnessstartswithone

My kids were among the very first kids @livingchurch. I wish I could say it was only because of the amazing parenting of @ambarthatp and I that they know their books of the Bible and their fruits of the spirit and so many Bible stories! But it is truly because of the foundation poured into them by @timmhorton, @bethanyashtonhorton, and @livingkids that they have grown in their faith, while having fun, and making life long friends. Today I’m so pumped for the next generation as we welcome two new members to the @livingchurch team! We’ve spent over a year searching for the right fit, and there were moments where we felt a little confused at what God was up to. But I am so thrilled to know @stacianjenkins will take our entire Living Kids department to a whole new level as our new Kids Pastor. So glad @mekforgey is joining her team as Preschool Director to make sure our little ones are well taken care of! Can’t say enough thank you to Pastor Timm for his investment in our kiddos and his heart for this house! Best part is, he’s still here too, and he’s now able to run in all the lanes God has him in for this season! God is doing a new thing and it’s incredible to be a part of it! The best is yet to come, y’all!! #ilovemychurch#wegettodothis

So, I have some really big news for my friends and family back home in Missouri. I will know details by the end of next weekend, then I'll let everyone know. But let's just say for now... Hey Van Buren, MO. Are ya'll ready for Austin Neal & Savannah Road to come hang out and play for an epic evening? 😎
Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day and tomorrow is the start of Random Acts of Kindness Week. Watch our Instagram account each day for simple ways that you can spread kindness and make someone's day! #bekind#wegettodothis#kindnessstartswithone
Oh, friends - tons of snow days and now winter break.....how are you holding up? Some moments or days are rough, yes? 🤪😭 My prayer is if you have encountered your own brokenness, you will allow the brokenness to grow into abundance. “There is only so much time.
And I'll admit, over the years I got so much wrong.
So there it is: I have been the broken mama who punished when I needed to pray. Who hollered at kids when I needed to help. Who lunged forward when I should have fallen back on Jesus.
And until you see the depths of brokenness in you, you really can’t know the depths of Christ’s love for you.
And for crying out loud, there is only so much time to be broken and given and multiplied.
I never expected to get so much wrong. Yet also? I never expected love like this. I never expected so much joy. Please be patient with God’s patient work in you.
And the thing is -- it’s not that your heart isn’t ever going to break; it’s how you let the brokenness be made into abundance afterward. And afterward, I’d had to say sorry—no, I got to say sorry—so many times.
Isn’t repentance a foundational thesis of life, of taking the broken way? If the whole life of believers should be repentance, then what is the call of the whole life of believers but a broken way?
You have enough of Him — and He is enough. You are enough — because the great I AM is in you & with you & *for you.*
*He is enough* --- and that is enough.” -Ann Voskamp
#Fridaygoals = Create something new! 🎨✝️❤️📖
We say it often in our faith family = “We get to do this!” We get to plan ministry and pray and study and work hard and speak boldly about Who this amazing Jesus is. . . and that is an incredible thing!! What better way to end the week that creating spaces WITH Him in order to SHARE Him?! .
Hope you’re in your amazing #createspace with our amazing God today!
This is me.... Not swimming, Not biking, Not running. This is me being raw. I don’t normally post the realities. At one point @humansoftriathlon called me out on that during a podcast. It’s not that I like to pretend everything is always perfect. It’s that I’m genuinely a positive person and despite the setback I see the positives.
This time I was open with where I was (physically) post race. Here it is: The official results from my x-rays and my MRI.... MY x-rays showed signs of an “early hip fracture” and the MRI scan showed a “possible labrum tear.” My Dr. needs to see the films to confirm anything and I have an appointment scheduled. Up next a CT but also light exercise. Anyone want to go for a walk? 🍂🍁 #goals#knowledgeispower#easebackintoit#beenherebefore#itwasworthit#badassisbeautiful#mindovermatter#wegettodothis#thisisus
Keep going! You're halfway to the weekend!😎💕 🇩🇪

Nun bin ich bereit für den Mittwoch- let's rock Freunde! 💪🏩 🎁🎁🎁🎁 #bunert#giveaway#gewinnspiele#gewinnspiel#germanblogger#dankeschön
2011. When it all began. Not much has changed since this photo.... Maybe a few more wrinkles, finishers medals, awards, scars, tattoos, and lessons learned, but my heart is still in the same place.
On Monday I had surgery on a hip labrum tear. Everything went great! (Even better than expected.) My ortho said the issue was from frayed cartilage that had torn traumatically and had actually folded over on itself and twisted so anytime I put pressure on it, it was pinching my nerves. He did what needed to be done and nothing more. He listened to me, got me, and for the first time in two months I’m walking without pain. The stress fracture was caused by the tear because it overlapped and caused an imbalance in my stride. Not only do I have concrete answers, but I have a plan that’s being set into motion. Currently I’m at %100 weight baring to tolerance ;) and doing my in home PT. Back to the basics with the fire lit. Thank you to everyone who has been checking in on me and supporting from near and far. I may have 7+ years on this photo, but I feel that same spark. Let’s do this! 👊🏻 The fire it lit!
