Happy Anniversary my to my forever man crush Monday @_davidbratcher 🥂 15 years of loving you and 8 years conquering this thing called marriage.  I wouldn’t want to share this crazy journey with anyone else. You are the love of my life, my best friend, better half, and obviously the life of the party. I love you, I love you, I love you. ❤️

Last jits post for the week... maybe. This year I set out to earn two stripes on my belt and that moment happened a little over a month ago. 💪  I don’t want to stop now. New goal? 4? We’ll see. Sidenote: I love how God gives me little reminders of home while I’m away. Turns out one of our affiliate gyms is in the city we’re filming in! 👊 I’m ready to roll!

Nothing like being thrown by @fredsonpaixao,a 5th degree black belt and 4x World IBJJF champion. Just glad he didn’t break my wrist. 😂 😉 BJJ is a lot like being on a film set, you learn to find peace in the chaos, focus among distractions, roll with the punches, and drill your technique enough to nail it when the time is right. #oss 🥋

Just gazing off dreaming of cheeseburgers. 🍔

If you’ve never felt it, it’s really hard to describe what it’s like to reach rock bottom. To feel so out of control and hopeless that you’re ready to close your eyes and not open them again. I’ve been there. I was self destructive. I was reckless. I was selfish. In denial. In need of healing and suffering from a disorder I didn’t know I had. Yet, at my darkest hour God never stopped pouring out His love.  I’d never gone too far to come back to the open arms of our good father. Because of the blood that Jesus shed on the cross for me, I’ve been set free.  Today is a day of celebration, not mourning because it’s not over. If you’re here today, breathing, fighting a battle, please know that you have a purpose. You are loved beyond measure and there is hope.  People call me brave when I share my story, but I’m really not. I’m just not ashamed because I know that I’ve been washed clean, forgiven, and that I’m not a prisoner of my past. You don’t have to be either. 👑

“...and she laughs without fear of the future.” Proverbs 31:25
💜
I am FAR from the perfect Proverbs 31 woman, but I can say this is one truth that I live daily. This is an industry of feast or famine but I never worry when my next job will come because I have complete faith in the Lord as my provider. I gave my career to Him a long time ago and the journey has been fruitful and rewarding BECAUSE I approach each opportunity with open hands.  I trust completely that His plan is so much greater than my own.  I believe wholeheartedly than any door He opens, no man can close. I believe in His providence. Do you want to walk in the ultimate plan for your life? Give it ALL to God, seek first His kingdom and all these things will be added to you.
💜

A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms. 🌷

“The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!” 🤙👊💪 Never in a million years would I have thought I’d be standing on that podium in a sport like Brazilian jiu jitsu. As strange as it sounds, I’ve found such peace from fighting.  I’ve done it all my life and for the first time I really understand what it’s all about. It’s not about the other guy, it’s about personal growth. Getting back up and trying over and over again. Never stop learning.  I took home silver in The No Gi division yesterday in VA Beach @usgrappling 🥈 The competition was tough and I have so much respect for the other women I faced.  My gi game on the other hand was off and my first roll was fierce.  I got put in a super tight bow and arrow... lemme tell ya... I don’t ever wanna feel that again. 😂 On to the next. OSS.

Just checked off a New Year’s resolution for 2018 and earned 2 stripes on my belt! 🥋 I’ve been training hard the last few months, using muscles in my body that I never knew I had, and finding strength in vulnerability and relaxation.  I love the way this sport is changing my life. Huge thank you to Professor @fredsonpaixao and Coach Tulsa @groundstonebjj ♥️
