8 Things I Have Been Doing With My Life

May 31, 2017

Happy almost June! It’s been well over a month since I have last blogged and for that I do and don’t apologize. As I was glancing through Pinterest tonight at my old posts, and after meeting with some other blog moms today I couldn’t help but recall how time consuming blogging really was. This space that once consumed my life has become a one time a month spot and for once it actually feels pretty nice. I thought I would create this post updating you with what has been going on in my life, in 8 different ways.

What I have been up to:

1). Taking life in and getting to spend as much time with my family and friends.

2). For my three years blogging I don’t think I watched much on the television at all, now I enjoy it again.

3). I have been attending more local social gatherings and got plugged into a mommy and child play group with other lovely moms I have had the privilege of getting to know.

4). Let’s be honest, I have focused a lot more on sharing LipSense on social media and since beginning to build a team up I have a new found challenge and passion for it! I love the people and friends I am meeting through it as well.

5). I started a part time teaching job at our church’s after school program.

6). I substitute teach when I can through one of our local school systems.

7). I have been praying about full time teaching again or at least subbing full time in the Fall of 2017 (your prayers would be appreciated).

8). When I left blogging full time I began a deeper appreciation for God’s word and listening to preaching stations, podcasts, etc. I am diving more into God’s word and seeing SO MUCH that I find cool, convicting, challenging, interesting and more. It’s been fun to find out things and question God, ask others opinions or thoughts and enjoy discipleship or fellowship with other believers.



 Tell me what have you been up too?

    Hey, Rachel! So glad that you were able to take some time off and do all these amazing things. Sometimes taking a step back and breathing a bit is so worth it! I love that you’ve been diving more into the Word and substituting. That’s so exciting and it’s great to see you tapping into what really makes you happy. All the best to you and I can’t wait to see what you have coming up. XO!

    Hi Rachel! It sounds like your life is happy and full right now! And your family is beautiful – I think it is awesome you’ve been able to step back and spend more time with them. (And watch some great TV!)

    It seems you made the right decision to step back from blogging, Rachel, and I am so happy for you that you’ve found a fresh direction to channel all that energy and conviction and passion. LipSense has brought much to many all over the world, and I’m so happy for you that it’s been doing the same. I can’t lie, I’ve missed reading your personal, honest posts, and I hope that you may one day return to sharing with us more than monthly 🙂 xo
