I am all about the embroidery trend that has embraced the fashion world lately. So it was very exciting to receive this little sleeveless number from Pink Blush Maternity that allowed me to join in on the fun. This trend makes a simple look have a little more flare. And I love it.

A year ago, I had never heard of Pink Blush. It wasn’t on my go-to list of places to shop. Now it is a website I visit often and will continue to do so after I lose the bump. I love how a little change in style can open up a whole new world of shopping. And who doesn’t love finding new places to shop. 

A year ago, I was coming home from a weekend at She Speaks. A conference designed for women who want to share their story with Christ through writing or speaking. I remember leaving on such a high, like most do when you spend 72 hours in praise music and His word. Seriously. Who doesn’t feel the spirit working in you when you have spent the weekend hearing from women like Shauna Neiquist, Lysa TerKeurst, Nicki Koziarz and Cindy Bultema. Only to top it off with a message from Steven Furtick at Elevation Church. It was a weekend full learning from people that I had looked up to and adored over the past couple of years.

But the second my plane landed in Nashville that Sunday afternoon, I didn’t return to my home. Instead, I realized I had made it in enough time to make the evening service at my church. So I went straight there. Straight to my place of comfort. To the place where I was first encouraged to take the steps towards my dream.

You would think that after days of hearing His message, I wouldn’t even consider ending the weekend once again at church. I would have enough Jesus in me to last for the months to come. But something told me to go and be there. Return to the place where it had all began. Return home.

Now, a year later, my home has changed in more ways than I ever imagined. The people who I used to look forward to seeing each Sunday have moved on to new places. I’ve gotten used to hearing different voices lead our church. Adam and I have adjusted where we sit each Sunday. And we even have a new senior pastor. A change I never expected to see at this home. Yet, here it is.

But even though God has completely stripped all the parts that provided so much comfort for me at my church, it is still where I want to be. Where I feel encouraged. Where I can go to recharge my soul. Yes, everything has changed. But it is still home. A home where I will still learn new promises of His love. A home where I can still find peace. A home where my heart still leaps with joy to attend every Sunday morning. Because home is always going to be where Jesus is. And I am thankful that even through all the tears, heartbreak, and change this past year brought – He is still good and Crosspoint is still home.
