…about contentment.

I feel like God is calling me towards contentment, towards taking care of what I have, towards forgoing excess in favor of serving others’ needs.

Instead of seeking more stuff, I want more peace.

Instead of running towards bigger and better, I long for cozy and just right.

Instead of creating margin for things that simply occupy space, I want to carve out space for margin in my life.

I’m unsure how possible it is to adjust the choices I’ve made that have landed me here, with so much excess. But instead of focusing on undoing the undoable, I feel God calling me to buy less, to want for nothing, to tend to our mess and our joy, and to trust in Him to make all things right and new, in His time and in His way.

Feeling the same way? Join me as I embark on Nancy Ray’s Contentment Challenge. For the months of January-March, I’m forgoing discretionary spending in favor of prioritizing what’s necessary.

During these ninety days, I’ll be reading Emily Ley’s When Less Becomes More, working through Annie F. Downs’ 100 Days to Brave, and devouring as many of Brene Brown’s books on bravery, leadership, shame and vulnerability as possible in three months. Here we go, #contentmentchallenge!

Fueled by equal parts caffeine and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can’t wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come.
