Get Inspired!

I am beyond EXCITED (and so very honored!!) to share that I will be speaking at Inspired 2015 presented by Amber Housley; an amazing retreat experience for creative women entrepreneurs to grow, connect and be inspired.

I had the joy of speaking at the Inspired 2014 Retreat where I met incredible, incredible women, made new amazing friends, learned SO much and came back inspired to make big changes within my business.

I may have gone to teach but I walked away having learned more than I could have ever imagined. And I have no doubt that this year’s Inspired Retreat (I mean, look at this amazing speaker lineup!) will not disappoint.

Since Inspired 2014, I have learned so much and I cannot wait to share all that goodness with this year’s attendees. I will be speaking about branding (my favorite topic!!), a topic that is widely talked about in the creative world but rarely taught in a way that is super practical and easily applied. I hope to do just that; give practical, real help to your branding questions and needs.

Meet me there friend. Let’s sit in rocking chairs listening to the waterfall with coffee in hand and chat the night away. I want to help you right where you are; whether that’s with branding or business strategy or just the everyday workings of life; join me.

Hello February! Desktop + IPhone Wallpapers!

Hello February! January was a beautiful month for me (and I pray for you as well!!) as I purposely slowed down and limited my tasks to only that which was of utmost importance. It has been a brilliant way to clear my mind and heart as I seek direction for 2015. (More on all of that later!)

I pray your 2015 has been off to a great start. I pray you are settling into your 2015 goals, pursuing them one small step at a time. Remember, this is not a sprint but a marathon. Do one small thing to work towards those goals every day. February is the perfect time to pull out all of those goals you shouted to the world on January 1st and quickly forgot about (me too!) Pull them out and review them this week and then set small steps for each on to focus on this month. I am about to go do that very thing!

I pray your February is beautiful. And I pray these desktop and iPhone wallpapers bring a bit of joy and inspiration to your everyday.

Christmas Activity Ideas for Children | Legend of the Candy Cane | by Ashlee Proffitt
We did this sweet activity last year and it makes my heart almost burst open to see these precious pictures of my babies only one year ago. How they have grown. What a blessing and privilege it is to have the opportunity to watch my babies grow.
Christmas Activity Ideas for Children | Legend of the Candy Cane | by Ashlee Proffitt

This activity is super simple and super fun!

  • Green Paper or Blank Canvas
  • Red Paint
  • White Paint

Instructions
  1. If using a blank canvas, paint the canvas green.
  2. When canvas is dry (or on green paper) draw the shape of a candy cane.
  3. Pour a quarter size amount of red and white paints onto separate paper plates (this will keep them from mixing the colors and creating an all pink candy cane).

So forgetful.

Early Will I Seek You | Morning Routine by Ashlee Proffitt for Glow, Live As Light.

My heart is restless and my thoughts are often too scattered to sort through. 

Most mornings I wake up before my alarm. And even before I can gather my first thought into something coherent I am already panicking. 

Too much to do. Too much to manage. Too much to make sense of, sort through, and accomplish.

Almost every single morning my heart is beating for something other than my Savior. In the few hours I spent sleeping I have already forgotten that I am His…. 

Read the full post over at Glow, Live As Light where I had the privilege of guest posting this week. 

You can also find a printable version of the print above on the full post. 

Happy December! Desktop & IPhone Wallpapers!

Hooray for the start of my most favorite time of the year!

Let’s choose purpose, intentionality and joy this December as we remember the true reason for the season.

I pray these wallpapers brighten your December days and point your hearts to Jesus!

Enjoy!
