How to Spread Love The Eternal Way

As an imperfect mother living in a world where social media proclaims perfection, it is easy to be filled with constant worry and even, at times,  jealousy. Questions like “Am I doing well enough as a parent?” “Do my children have enough new toys?” “Do my children have as many gifts for birthdays and Christmas that the social media feeds show?” “Are their clothes ‘in style’?” may arise. The list could go on and on about what this world deems great parents to be. It can really make you feel like you are not good enough, when in truth, these things are only things, and they do not measure our ability to parent our children, and do not truly matter in terms of our children’s salvation.

Hi, friends! I’m Bethany Joy, a painter of color and “joy.”  The feeling of paint on my fingers, wearing my favorite denim paint shirt, squeezing a new tube of paint, watching paint drip down a canvas, even waiting for paint to dry…those things make my heart smile.  But, I didn’t choose painting, at first that is… Continue reading

Erin Nausin

Hey friends! Today’s post is brought to you by the wonderful and talented Erin Nausin of Primavera Studio. We hope you’re as encouraged by her story as we are!
