Thankfulness. It’s value rises to the forefront during this month but what does it take to apprieciate it daily? What would it look like to pause and recognize thankfulness as a good discipline for our mind?
I can get so swept into the daily’s that the bigger picture gets lost. This last week we were watching videos of my kids tiny years (which only came about because I was trying to rescue videos from a crashing computer) and we were laughing so hard ... it was such a great reminder of how fast time goes and just how darn grateful I am for our life. The 2 minute little nuggets have proven to serve as daily thankfulness reminders. What about you? How can you cultivate daily thankfulness?
It was a week with several late nights so I am thankful to head into #Sabbath as the sun sets and remind myself that God is God and I am not. #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling #thankful #thanksgiving #grateful


Last weekend I got to have girlfriends over for soup, crusty bread and crafting. All four things are in my top favorite things!!
Did I have time to clean my house? Nope.
Time to make food? Nope.
Time to prep an elaborate craft? Nope.
So, what is a girl to do?? A quick, quick run into Costco for soup, bread, fruit and macaroons did the trick. A quick sweep of the surfaces plus a fall candle going made for a great "clean house" illusion and these no sew, easy peasy pumpkins were fun for everyone. We just used stuff I already had and the hubs cut up a branch for us to use as stems.
What brings joy to your life that isn't getting the room it deserves because it seems like too much work? How can you simplify? Seriously? I find if I will slow down enough there is always a way to simplify. How can you shove aside the parts that really, really don't matter and appreciate what you can do?
I can let a having a perfectly clean house, non-homemade food and no time for planning ruin my night or I can be thankful for the conversation, laughter and cute pumpkins everyone made rest on me as enough. My choice, right? #thankful

Anyone else get a bit freaked out when trying something new? 🙋 I totally consider myself a crafty girl but making my first stencil sign had me a bit on edge yesterday. Was I getting the stencil stuck down enough? Was the paint going to bleed? Was I gonna love the colors I picked? Cozy Barn Signs took good care of us and kept encouraging us to walk through the process even if it felt a bit stressful.
That’s pretty much how a lot of life goes, huh? There is going to be hard ... but if I walk through it with trust that God is in charge and not me THEN I can believe, with all my heart, that in the end there will be good. #trysomethingnew #craftymom #barnsign


I've always wanted to move from being someone who had dusty books staring at me on my nightstand and transition into being an active reader that was pursuing daily growth. Thankfully, Audible came to the rescue! If you are not an active Audible user, jump onboard. It will change your life!


It's amazing how fast the days fly by! Even when I have a day to myself with nothing in particular planned the time just escapes just feels like there's not enough time in the day. Constantly craving time is definitely not what God has intended for us! Looking for a solution? Follow me on a journey to satisfy this craving:


Never underestimate what God is doing in your season of waiting. Have a peaceful week knowing that God is in all the details, even if it doesn't always feel like it. #MotivationMonday


Can anyone go into Target and not come out with at least 5 things? If you have the willpower not to want to buy the entire store, I truly applaud you. After spending hours a week running errands at Target and the grocery store I finally came to the realization that I could be using all of that time to do things that I actually enjoy. Replace shopping time with you time! Discover my tips and tricks to transform your weekly shopping routine:


Who has a bad habit that they are trying to break (biting your nails, popping your gum, etc)? I will be the first one to tell you how difficult it is to break habits like these (I have them too)!… and yet, these aren’t really the bad habits we need to reflect upon. I’m talking about bad habits that get in the way of our walk with our Savior. Discover the habits that may be hurting your walk with God:


"A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are."


"May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace." Happy Friday friends. I hope you have a peaceful, fulfilling weekend!


World Gratitude Day is coming up on September 21st and I have been trying to think of the appropriate way to celebrate. We thank our friends and family for the gifts they give us and the things they do for us, but their support goes further than that. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our day-to-day “stuff” without realizing how we’ve gotten here. Want to know the best ways to express your appreciation to your loved ones? Read on:


"If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, it is that life is short and there is no time for hate." -Sandy Dahl, wife of pilot Jason Dahl Flight 93. Today and everyday, I keep those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the loved ones they left behind in my thoughts and prayers. Let us all stand together and pray for peace, love and the innocent lives who are now at home with God.


Raise your hand if you love social media (don't worry, my hand is raised too)! As mompreneurs and stay-at-home-moms, it’s so easy to get overtaken by Facebook and Instagram: “What’s going on with the church community?” or “Oh, Sarah must be watching a lot of Chip & Joanna–just look at that new shiplap wall!” But how are those habits effecting your walk with God? Looking to break bad social media habits? I have the answers:


Fresh off The Blog: DEEP BREATH!! Summer is over, moms and dads! Although I will miss my kids while they’re at school, I am so excited to have a little more of my freedom back.

"Carey is a fantastic listener who gives wise, biblical guidance. She enables me to determine “the real issues” and then supports me with ideas and encouragement to create solutions specific to my life. Since working with Carey, I have become more organized, a more present wife and mother, and a more content person overall" -Page


Raise your hand if you're tired! Run-down! Depleted! Trust me, I know the feeling...most of us do. But the reality is, that shouldn't be our "normal." Join me on the journey to make some amazing changes in your life that will give you a new purpose, prospective, and most of all, the feeling of rest:


In honor of National Women's Equality Day (officially August 26th) I want to express my gratitude to the women who have come before me and paved the way for the mothers and daughters of today, especially women of faith who have worked to honor God. Both in my faith and my daily life as a Christian woman, mother and entrepreneur, I draw inspiration from these fierce women in the Bible:


"A heart at peace gives life to the body." Proverbs 14:30
Happy Friday, friends. I hope you have a peaceful, relaxing weekend spending time with family, friends, and reflecting with God.


The long Labor Day weekend is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with family. If your summer life is as hectic as mine, you may not be able to get away for a vacation, but there’s still time to have some fun with your children. Get outside and make sure your kids have the time of their lives with these awesome (outdoor AND cost effective) activities:


As summer comes to an end and the kids start to gear up for the school year, it's a perfect time to reflect on the summer fun, and regain "you" time. It can be challenging to take a step back and slow down from the constant chaos, but it is so important to set aside time for yourself. Discover the importance of craving time:


Between getting the kids to all of their activities, keeping up with housework, and being a life coach, things (as you can imagine) get pretty full. If I'm being honest, there are days where I just want to scream into a pillow because I'm so stressed out. When life becomes busy and it seems like too much to handle, it can be easy to forget that God has a hand in everything. Discover my unique stress relieving tools that can help you find your inner peace and cleanse your soul:


It's August, which means that it is officially Family Fun Month! For those of you who have been following me for a while (or even a short time), you know how much family time means to me (so you can only imagine that this month is going to be filled with some quality family time). Game nights, dinner with friends after church on Saturday, or a movie night with the fam...What are some fun things you and your family will be doing this month?


"I have learned to become content while thoughtfully making strides to follow the passions and achieve the goals that were once buried by fear and discouragement. Carey’s impact on my life is invaluable." -Kimberly A.

You know that feeling when you’re just starting a trial — big or small? It is so, so easy to lose our joy in moments when our circumstances threaten to do us in. Find out how you can trailblaze through your own personal trials:


Women are some of the most wonderful and powerful of God’s creations. Do you want to know what happens when we get together? AMAZING things. How do you build such a strong group of powerful, supportive women?:

"Carey Bailey is indeed the Life Coach that the Lord hand picked for me. In each of our sessions I always know that it will be bathed in prayer and that at the end of the time together the Lord will have spoken through her into my heart and soul." -Sarah M.


Raise your hand if you have a seemingly endless to-do list. Trust me, you're not alone. We’re never going to be done with our to-do lists entirely - if we were, our kitchens would be piled with dirty dishes and our bank accounts would be perilously low. It's okay to not get everything done- it's part of reality. This summer, let's set aside our to-do lists (at least for an hour or two) and claim our want to's:


With the kids out of school, it's hard to find "me" time. Don't get me wrong, I love spending time with them, but as moms, we all crave rest, relaxation, and quiet time with God. What better way to do this than by jumping in the tub, throwing in a bath bomb, and listening to empowering, relaxing, and encouraging playlists that will strengthen your spirits:


Happy 4th of July from my family to yours! Whether it's seeing my children's faces light up when they watch the fireworks or the prayer we say before eating our celebratory barbecue, I am truly grateful that God has blessed me with so much joy in my life. What are you doing this 4th of July to celebrate with your family?


God and I talk all day long, but if I am honest a lot of those conversations are focused on me and my family. In the busyness of life, I don’t take the time I should take to be in prayer for others in this world. Here are my top 18 creative ways to pray for others during a busy day:


“Carey has helped me tackle some huge obstacles that stand in the way of realizing my self-worth and potential. I feel empowered to battle them on my own with the tools she has given me.” -Eva
