Death is complicated. Death hurts. Trying to explain loss to a child, trying to explain that their dad died when they are only 5, 4, and 2, is impossible. Then helping them understand and embrace their new dad on earth is complicated, to say the least.

Read more over on Love What Matters how we introduced Dustin to the kids, what steps we have taken to help them adjust to their dad on earth, and how the kids have adapted so far.

November Bestsellers
All this time home with sick kids this week has given me the time to really scrub my bathroom! It has 20 years of scum and buildup so I needed to break out the big guns. Cleaning has never been my strong suit, so these have changed it for me! These and my Norwex cloths 😍 
Also does obsessing over cleaning products and organizational systems make me old? Because if it does I don’t care. 😆🙌🏼

It’s taken a long time to get to this point, but this room finally feels like home! I can not even handle the transformation (swipe to see the before). It’s so dreamy, super cozy, and filled with texture. Most everything in this room is on sale for Cyber Monday, too! I love going to bed every night in this room.

Lots of questions about the kitchen from the quick tour last night, so here’s some sources! Hopefully we will get our fridge at some point (we are closing in on a YEAR since we ordered our fridge and freezer 😑). This runner is on sale and it’s so gorgeous.

I won’t ever stop talking about it. Being amazed. Heck, I didn’t even know where iowa was on a map until a year and a half ago 😂

I find myself pausing often. I couldn’t have imagined my life this way. Our story, all the ups and downs, the curveballs and surprise hero.

I’ll never stop talking about it. 
God’s provision. His goodness through all the heartache. The amazing peace and His obvious hand in the redemptive part of our story. 

It’s worth talking about and sharing again and again. Because our lives didn’t end when his did. And God deserves all the glory and praise. 

I’ll never stop talking about it.
