Hey friends! I've got some good news AND some bad news!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My friend, Meagan (pictured here), of Take Heart Counseling & Equine Assisted Therapy is out-growing her farm!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This farm has been a powerful source for helping people find hope, healing and wholeness, and they need to continue to serve the community in this way....BUT...to do this, they need to move...they need a bigger facility, a new farm!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
YOU WANNA HELP?!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are offering a FUNDRAISER PHOTO SHOOT for Take Heart on December 14th.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reserve a time for you and your loves to have a fresh and meaningful photo captured at Take Heart's current property! We will have Christmas greenery ...and we hope that maybe some horses will be nosy enough to be seen in the background of your photo!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you see your new picture, I hope that you will cherish seeing those you love and be thankful to have taken part in something so meaningful!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Alright...pick out some cute and cozy clothes and reserve your spot today!! HERE'S YOUR LINK TO SIGN UP!

There IS hope... Restorable (part 1)

You ready for this...for Restorable? This personal project that has changed and rocked so much of my business. But more importantly..so much of my life, my heart, and my relationships.
This project that was originally intended to be kept private..just for myself, is now here for you… Simply because, this project has comforted me so deeply. It has been used to give me a visual of what hope looks like. And now, God has compelled me to comfort others with the comfort that I have received.

Restorable is now for you too. You who could use some comfort or maybe a dose of hope. You who knows that you don’t have it all together.
You have places in your life or your heart that are broken..that you think could never change...that continually discourage you and leave you feeling defeated. You could use some encouragement.

Join me here for some comfort in those hurting places. Allow your heart to be cared for and nurtured...and discover TRUE and LASTING HOPE with me...because HOPE is so good for the soul!

This here is the first of many in the series, so if you want to be sure to not miss out on any of the #restorableproject then be sure to sign up for my email newsletter, and subscribe to #hopelayerpodcast wherever you listen in.
Right now, you can head to Hope Layer Podcast for more words from this inspiring video.

by the way, didn't Justin from @cinematiclovestories do a fabulous job creating this film?!!

Did ya hear??
The Hope Layer Podcastis LIVE!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now you can easily listen in to episodes ONE and TWO where I give a bit of an introduction to let you know who I am and why this girl who really only ever dreamed of being a wife and a mom, is starting a podcast!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Listen in wherever it is that you listen to podcasts! Or, you can go to my website and click "podcasts"!
www.jenminingerPhotography.com
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
in case you didn't know, IT WOULD BE REALLY HELPFUL if you subscribed and wrote a review wherever you listen in. Because the Restorable Project is NEXT, and if you subscribe and review the Hope Layer Podcast ...it will help the Restorable message reach more people...and hopefully reach that person who is needing to hear that there is hope for their story!

thanks for sharing and get this hopeful message out!

its been a little bit of blood, sweat and tears over here (exaggeration..sort of!)...
.

a whole lot of praying, fighting and persevering to pull off this podcast... .
.
and NOW...I think I could shed some happy tears..cause I got some hard work behind me!!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On one hand it feels like a crazy big deal that I'm starting a podcast...but then on the other hand...its really not so big or crazy! (NO big deal, Jen!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You see, I'm just your normal wife and mom spending most of my time in the kitchen... who just happens to be sharing some pretty amazing comfort that I have received...and I happen to be sharing audibly!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I really don't know where this podcast will lead...but I do know it is a useful tool to share hope with you! .
.
I hope you will search for "Hope Layer" Podcast wherever it is that you happen to listen to podcasts!! (I happen to click that little purple app on my i-phone that says "podcasts")
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and...honestly..🤦‍♀️i'm pretty tired of writing all kinds of stuff, so no big description, no bells and whistles, no major marketing idea... 🤷‍♀️ just a simple invitation to listen to my very 1st podcast episode! ❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
oh yes... one more thing.. if your not the listening kind..then you can read what I spoke about on my blog! www.jenminingerphotography.com

Meet Beth Ann & Trevor!

A couple that once again proves that "opposites attract" is real thing...and beautiful...and even a bit magical!!

Cause these two have some pretty admirable chemistry...and it was a whole lot of fun capturing their love!

Beth Ann & Trevor are the kind of coupe that others just like to be around...well, at least I did...and I can't wait to see what kind of fun and beauty they create with their family and friends this coming May!!

I'm doing it friends...NO, SERIOUSLY... I REALLY AM over here putting time, effort and so much heart into sharing Restorable with you...
I'm just sayin'....its a bit of an uphill climb some days...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I go from excitement and clarity ..filled with energy and vision one day...
and then on the next day, I battle discouragement and defeat over all the hurdles and unexpected obstacles that I encounter to pull this thing off!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm telling myself that its normal.. and I'm normal... and to not throw the towel in...I remind myself that this whole thing isn't "weird" and that I need to keep climbing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BUT...I can't climb on my own strength... so I climb with the constant reminder that God has given me so much encouragement through this Restorable project...and HE is the one that has undeniably compelled me to comfort others with the comfort that I have received... Restorable is HIS idea, His project, His "work" that He began in me...and He will continue to be faithful to complete it... to offer it to you...AS I continue to learn from it. Sooo...if the timeline isn't what I expected it to be... is that actually a hindrance?... does it affect the power of the message?... .
.
NOPE!
So...I'll climb.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What about you?... when faced with hurdles...do you sometimes think - "well, maybe I shouldn't be doing this, anyway!"....do you get tempted to scale back or give up?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(btw... you all doin' ok with my run-on sentences??...I just can't ... idk... figure out how to talk to you with good sentence structure...or whatever!)

It just doesn't get old ..does it?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You make them smile and you find your insides just light right up!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But...ya know...it's not just a baby's smile...I mean, have you ever noticed how good it feels when you make ANYONE smile? .
.
Try it? Next time you make someone smile (cause I know you do!)...notice how wonderful that felt and how beautiful they look when they smile.
.
..
....and then PAUSE a sec...notice how THEY actually ended up GIVING TO YOU, just by smiling at you...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
...THEN...you can imagine the power of what YOUR SMILE might be for someone else's day!!

11/12/2019

All these hands to hold, hearts to care for, little humans to keep safe!... and you have a moment when your like "oh, my! We are outnumbered!!" At what point did you realize that you were outnumbered? Some would say... 1 mom + 1 dad then chances are you felt out-numbered when baby number 3 arrives... But that's just simple math, right? Better question... at what point did you realize that you were IN OVER YOUR HEAD!!?!! For me?... that was with baby number one... Just ONE KIDDO that we were head over heels in love with and we just NEW that we COULD NOT, ever, possibly give him all that we wanted to!! So, I knew from the get-go that I was in fact, in-over-my-head! And now, with 5 kids (4 teens & a 10 year old)... I STILL AM! So, many of you ask...how do I do it with 5 kids? First of all, I know I can't do it perfectly (though, I'd really like to!), so I confess my wrongs (hopefully)....like, say "sorry" and name what I'm sorry for, I try to learn by listening to others who are older and wiser than I, DAILY depend on God by telling Him that I can't do it without Him, and one of my favorite ways of surviving the "i'm-in-over-my-head-parenting"...is to do life in community! You see, from early on in our parenting years, we decided that we wanted OTHERS to speak into our kids lives...so, we do our best to hang out with some pretty cool parents who are a step or two ahead of us...AND...we try to connect them with our kids! Let them speak into our kids lives by inviting them over for meals, laughing and chatting after church with them, and asking them to tell their cool stories (again) with our kids listening nearby. How are you managing your "I'm in over my head" days?

I am SO excited to deliver this gallery today!!! cause...THIS FAMILY!!

this sweet family loves hiking and they aim to be outdoors as much as possible...
they treasure these times together, and they know that these days are something to cherish
...can't ya tell?!!..

So...we hiked!

I watched their ease as they wandered on the trail together...exploring mushrooms and moss and trees and sticks and... laughter and kisses.

I thought you might enjoy joining them on their little hike too...
besides..I can't possibly pick a favorite (or even 20!)..so I'll just be tempted to keep sharing more and more with you...cause I like to look at their pics...they make me feel joy..and maybe you'd like to soak in some of their joy too!!

I am in awe after each Layered Photography project, from the beautiful LAYER of HOPE that continues to be revealed!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hope has been the unexpected gift from God after choosing to walk through the deep layers of our hearts...and HOPE is SO good for the soul!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been amazed as I’ve shared these layered photography projects on my blog to hear how these stories of hope have been embraced by you...it's like, they were meant for you too!
Let me tell ya, it's so cool to be part of something bigger than yourself!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I listened to you as God used these hope-filled stories to inspire you, and I began to feel a growing burden for those who do not have the capacity to sit and read messages of hope through a blog ..
so NOW I will begin to share these projects with you, AUDIBLY!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yep…. the #hopelayerpodcast is brand new and for you… you, who are driving, washing dishes or just quietly laying in bed… this is coming to serve and love you ...to nurture your heart and speak hope into your story!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
...this podcast is for YOU who wants to safely and quietly be encouraged in the areas of your life that could use an authentic dose of true and lasting hope.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, FYI, I’m not here as some sort of hope expert. Rather, I’m just coming to you as one who has been comforted, and one who is learning how big God is inside of me! I will not come to you having it all figured out...but, I will come to you knowing that I can comfort others with the comfort I have received (and continue to receive)! It's really that simple!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why now? .. I’m SO close to launching the #restorableproject …my very 1st...and very personal layered photography project that was captured in a junkyard. Restorable has encouraged me so deeply and I just know (now) that it is also meant to encourage others!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SO... the website is set with the blog in motion..
the podcast is about ready,
and soon..it will be all kinds of authentic hope for us here!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Be sure to sign up to be on my EMAIL LIST and follow #hopelayerpodcast & #restorable) 😀❤️
