Friday In Five


This week was wrapped up in lots of sunshine, and  inspiration with my hubby,  and a new love for a new city.....Sunny San Diego was simply beautiful from every angle.

Exploring new places with my love for our Anniversary is one of my favorites, and I truly feel like a change of scenery every once in awhile opens our mind to new thoughts and inspiration and makes our relationship that much stronger. We celebrated 13 years this week and I feel so blessed to be doing life with this man.

Our trip was full of exploring, taking in the scenery and no itinerary. I hope to share more from our trip soon, but for now I leave you with five of my favorites from my iPhone this week. Happy Friday!!

She Health: Top 4 Sunscreens For Kids




Summer is in full swing and many families are looking forward to outdoor activities, road trips and vacations. Although summer is a time when children of all ages get to spend more time outside; there are some things you can do to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Did you know that we need sunlight to help our skin convert 7-dehydrocholesterol to vitamin D3? This reaction is very important and provides our bodies with the best form of vitamin D. If you slather sunscreen or sun block on before reaping the benefits of the sun rays you may become deficient in vitamin D.

A good rule to follow is to wait 20 to 25 minutes so that the sun can convert 7-dehydrocholesterol into vitamin D3 and then if you stay out in the sun for longer than that put on a sunscreen that has lower levels of chemicals.

During the summer we are constantly reminded to wear sunscreen to help prevent skin cancer. According to the Environmental Working Group some of the sunscreen that we put on our skin and on our children may actually cause the cancers they claim to prevent. I have picked out 4 Sunscreens that EWG says are the least harmful, which means they have lower levels of cancer causing chemicals like avobenzene.

Here are the Top 4 Sunscreens for Kids


Baby Time Episencial Sunny Sunscreen 
Alba Botanical SPF 30 Very Emollient Mineral Sunscreen for Kids
Badger Kids Sunscreen Cream SPF 30
Yes to Cucumbers Natural Sunscreen Lotion for Kids SPF 40


The sunscreens are rated by EWG by the degree of protection and levels of harmful ingredients listed on the label. The sunscreens are rated on a scale of 0 to 10; 0 has low levels of harmful chemicals and 20 has the highest levels of harmful chemicals. Out of the four sunscreens, #’s 1-3 are in the low hazard (0-2 range) and # 4 is in the moderate hazard (3-6) range. If you would like more information you can go to the EWG website.


I hope this helps you and your family stay safe in these hot summer temps!!

Coffee & Words:: Wandering Of Doubt

This week I had moments of, "God am I doing enough for you?"
                                              

Lately, I have been really gathering my thoughts and ideas for the
She Inspires Brunch workshop coming up on August 29th, and the conference for next year. I have also been thinking about ideas for some upcoming styled shoots and my rebrand for Inspired Events and Designs. With that comes all kinds of creative ideas rolling through my head all at once, and the most important for me is "God am I doing enough for you?"

I have walked away from things that I know I was pushing to hold onto and didn't really belong in my life. In doing so I have gained such a sense of fulfillment and peace in my home, my relationships, and in my faith walk. Now I am at the point in my faith walk that I just want to press forward without looking back and do all the things that God is asking me to do. In that pressing forward comes a little bit of wandering into that thing called "doubt". Some of you may be experiencing that today.

As I really reflect over the last couple of days, I start to think back to February at the She Inspires Experience conference, living in my obedience and sharing it with 130+ women of all walks of life. I can't help but think about all the blessings that were poured out to so many women through Faith and not Fear, through not letting the doubt interfere with God's vision, through truly setting who and what I thought I was suppose to be doing to the side and really focusing on what God put before me to do.

Last week this scripture came to me out of Psalm 143:8,  "Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life."

The wandering of doubt fades away with opening your heart fully to what God puts in you to do and completely trusting in him.
