Everything Beautiful Podcast: Free From Fear

I have talked with so many girl's lately that have been struggling with fear. So I just wanted to take a minute to encourage us all that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power and love and a sound mind. Fear comes to stop you from being all the God has called you to be. Don't let it. You are an amazing woman with a bright future. Press past fear and move into the promises that are on the other side. Below is the link to the latest podcast:

Love on Purpose

Just a thought today... Your life is beautiful for a reason. Be aware of what is going on in others lives today and use what is in your hand to inspire or encourage someone else. You have what others needs. Refuse to get so caught up in your own life and desires that you miss the opportunity to reach out to those around you. You are person of destiny. Love on purpose.

Isaiah 61:1-3
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed
He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come,
and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel,
he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
that the Lord has planted for his own glory.

Lots of Love ~ Liz

Sitting Pretty Vintage

I absolutely love vintage chairs, especially adding a modern twist to them... so I decided to turn my love into a little business. Sitting Pretty Vintage... Custom Design Finishes and Fabrics. I currently have over 50 styles that you can choose from as well as five fabric lines. Whether for your dining space, office, entry, or just an occasional chair...they would make your space just a little more beautiful!!

God is on your side

Here's a little excerpt from my devotion this morning. Thought it was worth sharing.

Perhaps you need to look up and around instead of back and down. Lift your eyes and see the amazing future which bursts with hope for in you God. Don't spend your life mourning over what you have lost and what is already gone; take an inventory of what you have left and keep going, one foot in front of the other, one step of faith at a time. Remember, God is on your side.

Have a wonderful day!! Lots of Love.

My mom the urban alchemist

Urban Alchemy: Creating Something entirely new from pieces that were previously unnoticed and unrelated.
I am loving this definition. When I read it, it made me think of my mom. She is definetly an urban alchemist (yes, i did just make that up). When I was in the process of moving from tulsa to bartlesville, I had seriously underestimated the time that it was going to take to pack up my place. So, my mom came to the rescue. Kyle, had just moved to Oklahoma from California, so he was still getting to know my family and ALL of our eccentricies. So long story short my mom, came in so excited about this gift that she had gotten me. So we went outside to check out this "gift"... and all we could see was this 20 ft tree branch. Kyle was a little confused at this point; but I could see my mom's creative thought come to life. She went onto explain how she was on her way to pick up my little brother from school and she saw this branch in the back of a truck and followed them to ask if she could have it. I'm sure this guy thought, "who is the lady and why does she want this branch"... but to much avail she became the proud owner of the oh so lovely branch. This was not just a discarded member of a tree, this was decor at it's finest. So today this "piece" is part of my collection of art that I enjoy viewing daily.

Here's to the Urban Alchemist in all of us.

Podcast 2: Scriptures

Hey girl's!

Here are the verses that we went over this week. Our second podcast should be up later today or tommorrow. Enjoy!

Lots of Love ~ Liz

Ephesians 3.20 (Amplified)
Now to Him who is able to carry out His purposes and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams). According to the power that is at work within us.

Matthew 6.33
Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.

Proverbs 18.21 (NLT)
The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

James 3.3-5 (Msg)
A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything or destroy it. It only takes a spark to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell.

Ephesians 2.6 (Amp)
And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together, giving us joint seating with Him, in heavenly places in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hebrews 4.12 (Amp)
For the Word of God speaks and is alive and full of power, making it operative, energizing and effective; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the soul and spirit and the joints and marrow (of the deepest parts of our nature), exposing, sifting, analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.

Scriptures From Podcast 1

Below are the scriptures that go along with Podcast 1. I encourage you to go over them and allow them to begin to be reality in your life!! Let me know if there is anything that I can do for you. Have a wonderful week ~ Liz

Ecclesiastes 3.1-11 (NLT)

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.

What do people really get for all their hard work? I have seen the burden God has places on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for it's own time.

Proverbs 3.5-7 ( Message)

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.

2 Corinthians 10.12b (Amplified)

When they measure themselves with themselves and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding and behave unwisely.

Matthew 6.34 (Message)

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tommorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.

Begin with the end in mind

Now to Him that is able to carry out His purpose and do exceedingly abundantly,
far above all that you dare ask, think, hope or imagine.
Ephesians 3.20
I have been pondering this scripture for the past few weeks, and have decided to make it my scripture for the year. It really peaks my interest to believe that I serve a God that can and will do above and beyond anything my finite mind can imagine. I can imagine alot... but I am ready to experience the things that God has been dreaming for me. By the end of the year, I want to look back and say "that was my plan, and God your plan was so much greater"! So I guess I am kinda writing to you, but in another way really sharing with God that I am ready for everything that He has for me. Be extreme. Show me your goodness in ways I never thought possible. Be God. The Only True God. In My Life. For All to See.

Something New

I was reviewing some of the top designs of the 2008 and found myself challenged and amazed how the design industry always seems to be moving forward with innovation, skill and possibility. Boundaries broken, ideas pursued, concepts coming to life and somehow always something new.  It's like great designers and architects are not afraid to dare to believe that their far out thoughts and ideas could actually become reality.  Sometimes form and function flow together, sometimes not, but either way my imagination is always stretched and I am reminded that there is an entire world of possibility just waiting to be discovered. 

This year...

This year I am believing for more than I could imagine. For my life to display God's goodness in such remarkable ways. To... have the best marriage on the planet. Fall more in love with Jesus. Be more comfortable in my own skin. Master the piano. Make it to New York and London with my sweet hubby. Spend more quality time with my mom and sisters. To take two trips with my mother in law. Love people unconditionally... even if they don't love me. Develop the most genuine friendships. Get to know the Bernards more. Be content. Go camping & hiking. Create sweet memories with my family one on one and together. Lose sight of myself. Focus on my strengths. Speak at many women's conferences and events. Purchase a new car. Live by faith in a real everyday way. To reconnect with old friends. To help others shine. Take more girl trips. Visit a few new anthropologies. Write some music. Visit the Turners in So Cal. Stop drinking diet coke (this one is for you mom:) Do hard workouts and get in the best shape of my life. Return voicemails much quicker. Be diligent in confessing the Word over Kyle and I and our future. Impact more lives. Inspire those around me to be all that God has made them to be. Go to Isreal. Find the good in every situation. Do crafty things with Christa. Buy an antique piece and refurbish it. Continue to develop my design skills. See Citizen Cope in concert. Coldplay. Counting Crows. Be a great aunt. To build one of the most life giving church communities.
