We always love a solid recommendation from a friend & there are so many things that we have really been loving lately that we wanted to share with you. There are a lot of different things in a lot of different categories so hopefully there’s a little something for everyone!
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month, we felt that it was extremely important to share a survivor’s story. This story was originally told on Kat Armstrong’s blog as a part of her #METOO series & is being re-shared here with permission from the author.
This fall is bringing about all sorts of new changes. Fall is hands down my favorite season of the entire year, and I am thrilled to be welcoming our first baby this fall. Some of you may know that over the last two and a half years I have been a personal trainer with Camp Gladiator, but this fall I’ve decided to step down as a trainer with CG.
Is it just me, or did the first half of the year fly by at a million miles per hour?! I feel like we just sat down and wrote out our New Year's resolutions and intentions, and now all of a sudden it’s June 13th and I am wondering how we got here so quickly. Since we are halfway through the year, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the first half of the year and to check in with some of the intentions I had for 2018.
It’s not an easy thing to tell a loved one who is walking through infertility that you are pregnant. Especially when you know that they are most likely being bombarded with constant pregnancy announcements on social media.

Last month, Ashley and I had the opportunity to attend Sparrow Conference at the Music Hall at Fair Park. We had gone to Sparrow conference in 2017 and we both agreed it was our favorite women’s conference we had been to. This year we knew it would be no different and we were both excited for how God was going to move through Sparrow.
Today I wanted to share with you all some of my very favorite devotionals that have encouraged me in my daily walk with Jesus. While I don't think devotionals should take the place of Bible reading or replace your time in prayer, I know that devotionals have been very helpful in supplementing my faith.
We launched the blog a little over two months ago now and one of my favorite questions still is “why?” People ask us all the time why we decided to write a blog. They ask what our purpose is, what our mission is, and even what our name means. I love the conversations that these questions prompt and speaking about our mission, so today I want to share with you in a roundabout way another reason of why we decided to create Simply Sisters Collective.
Marriage is really, really fun and at the same time really, really hard. Aren’t a lot of the more worthwhile things in life that way?
