I am so excited to announce…. A new section to Fellowship & Lattes!
This section is going to be called Real Talk. Here I will talk about very real and raw feelings and things going on in my life. This is also a place where I would really like to start having guest posts as well. I want to create fellowship through those deep and, sometimes, hard conversations that you would have with a best friend over coffee.
In this section you will find posts on insecurities, fears, health, dreams, goals and so much more. Not all “Real Talk” will be about the hard things. You can share your goals and your dreams. I want you to get to know me but even more so than that, I want to get to know you! I want you to know that you are not alone in your feelings or in the things you are struggling with. I want you to find encouragement and God’s truth.
1 Peter 5:9 “Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.”
This verse is such a great reminder to me. I am never alone. God is right there with me AND I’m not the first, the only or even the last person that will go through whatever struggle or joy I’m currently going through. There is someone out there that has gone through it-they can help me if I know where to look. There is someone that will go through it after me-I can help them if I know who they are. I want this section to be a place where we can find those people that we might not otherwise ever find.
If there is a topic you’d like covered fill out the form below. In the comment section let me know if you’d like to do a guest post or if you are needing for me to write a specific post. If I have not personally gone through whatever area you are needing encouragement in, I will do my very best to find someone who would be willing to do a guest post. I’d love to hear from you!
Over the weekend Brad and I had some really good conversations. We took the time to sit down and talk about our dreams and what we can do to reach those dreams.
I opened up with him and shared how I’m afraid to want more for this blog because I assume I’m just going to fail at it. If I know from the beginning I’m going to fail, then I don’t even want to get my hopes up and invest in it. Brad asked me some questions that got me to think about why I would fail. He mentioned that I of course will fail if I don’t even try. He encouraged me to really go for it and to start investing some money into making my blog exactly what I want it to be. I am so incredibly thankful for this man and that he believes in me so much!
This weekend I downloaded an ebook from Abby at Just a Girl and Her Blog. It has been incredibly helpful! I have also been asking tons of questions from my good friend Lauren at Sobremesa Stories. With the help of those two women and the encouragement and help from my husband, I have decided to really make this blog a space that I love!
Changes I Have Already Made
- I have bought my own domain and you will now find me at Fellowship and Lattes (www.fellowshipandlattes.com). I am so excited to have my very own space!
- I have also changed the look of it. I am still in the process of turning it into exactly what I want, so bear with me.
- I have created a Pinterest account for my blog and you can find that here: Fellowship and Lattes Pinterest.
- I have also created a Facebook page that you can find here: Fellowship and Lattes Facebook Page.
Changes I Want To Make
- I want to update my about me page and make it something wonderful where you can really connect with me and get to know me.
- I want to get an Instagram account up and running specifically for Fellowship and Lattes.
- I want to work on creating some more posts with different categories and themes.
- I want to set up a schedule of sorts for myself in order to blog as much as I would like while still taking care of things around my house and being the best mom I can be.
This will be my only post this week as I work on the items I mentioned above. Please check out my new space and let me know what you like/dislike. I can use all the help I can get! I hope to see you all next week as I come back more ready than ever! Have a great week friends!
Hey everyone! I’m so excited to get started with my very own blog. I’ve been reading blogs for the past year or so and have really enjoyed them. I find them to be incredibly encouraging and inspiring.
I have had the desire to start my own blog for the past couple of months but struggled with feeling like anyone would care what I had to say. I understand that this can be a hard journey and one you really need to work at but after months of prayer, I decided to go for it!
The name of my blog is Fellowship and Lattes. I chose this name for a couple of different reasons. Fellowship is such a crucial aspect of life. Whether you are gathering around a table to eat or play games, going out with friends or even simply reading a blog post from someone you’ve never met, fellowship matters! I wouldn’t be who I am or where I’m at in life if I didn’t have the friends and family that I have. I absolutely love the people that we live life with and they are so important to me!
The second part of the name is Lattes. If you know me, you know I love Starbucks!! Their Cinnamon Dolce Latte is my all time FAVORITE! My husband and I joke that he is my Cinnamon Dolce Latte. I’ll never have enough him! I love to grab coffee and catch up with my friends, whether that is at one of our homes or at a coffee shop. I also love to grab a latte as I grocery shop and walk around Target.
My love of lattes and fellowship with those around me helped me come up with the name for this blog. I want this to be a place where we can all grab a latte (or whatever your favorite drink may be) and sit down to have some fellowship with one another. Let’s live life together.
