The One Thing: My Anchor

October 15, 2015

*Today’s post is a guest post, written by Heather from Heather, Here & There. Ever since I left high school and “moved out” of the home I grew up in, I never stayed in one place for more than a year. Part of that was because my college kept us in the dorms the whole time, so I was in and out of different buildings. Part of it was because I found jobs, internships and research positions in different cities…

The One Thing: My Daughter

August 6, 2015

*Today’s post is a guest post, written by Michelle from Grammie Time. God’s creation, words, people, photos, they all breathe inspiration into me. There is “one thing” though that inspires me beyond all others: my daughter. Nine months pregnant, I went in for my soon-to-be last doctor appointment. After a routine sonogram and unbeknown to all of us, my doctor said, “your baby has a myelomeningocele. A neural tube defect (spina bifida), where the baby’s spinal cord fails to develop…

The One Thing: My Children

July 16, 2015

*Today’s post is is a guest post, written by Josie from Letters to Sophia + Jax. Seven years ago I was sitting with one of my college roommates talking about marriage and children. She went on about how she couldn’t wait to get married and have children and I just kept thinking she was crazy. We are 19 years old, still so young, why on earth are you thinking about that now? She then asked me when I wanted to…

The One Thing: Adventure

June 23, 2015

*Today’s post is a guest post, written by Rachael from The Rachael Way. We live in such a beautiful world it’s really hard to pick just one thing that inspires me. I thought long and hard about what I would write as the one thing that makes me me. After careful thought, I have decided that it is my love of adventure.  I didn’t always used to be this way, my friends. You see, I’m a type-A to a T.…

The One Thing: Love

April 30, 2015

*Today’s post is a guest post, written by Erin from comadiary. When I first sat down to think about the one thing that has inspired me I struggled. In a world where there is so much to see, learn and experience, how can I pick just the one things that inspires me? Thinking back to times when I’ve had to (metaphorically) pull myself up, what has been the one thing that has made me do it? Without sounding too cliched,…

The One Thing: Children, Challenges, & Change

April 2, 2015

*Today’s post is a guest post, written by Bijee from The Reflections of a Good Woman. Being young and searching for love can place you in some compromised situations, especially if you don’t even know that’s what you are doing. Growing up with a strained mother/daughter relationship, an absent father, and low self-esteem is breeding ground for… well, almost anything. By the grace of God I got none of what I deserved for the things I was doing, but at…

The One Thing: How Travel Changes You.

February 19, 2015

“If you had met me at the ripe young age of 19 and told me that I would travel to some of the far corners of the world before my 30th birthday I would have told you that you were nuts.” I never had the desire to travel and always assumed it was out of my reach financially. It wasn’t until several years later that a strikingly handsome and charming Englishman walked into my life and showed me just how…

I’m Stephanie. I blog over at She Dreams of Hope and I’m a photographer over at in her lens. A little disclaimer: I…

The One Thing: A Sister’s Love.

July 22, 2014

I am so excited to introduce you all to Katie today, as she shares The One Thing that inspires her; The One Thing that has changed her life for the better. The one thing. Whenever I am asked, what is the one thing that you love, want, chase after… I list a few. Not because I am a rebel (I am pretty much the opposite of that) but because I love, want, and chase after a lot of things in…
