#AMonthOnFilm – After dinner

25—After dinner We ate outside on this day. Burned our brush pile and roasted hot dogs over the fire and enjoyed an evening outside. It was so nice to accomplish some yard work and enjoy time together outside as a family. #amonthonfilm is a photo project with prompts hosted by two photographers on InstagramPhoto taken:Continue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – After dinner”

#AMonthOnFilm – Still life

24—Still life Tiny clump of dead lilacs from my small collection of dead, dried out plants laying on the sidewalk in evening light. I like dead things, plants can be just as interesting to me when they’re dead and dry as when they’re brightly blooming and full of life. I try to appreciate the beautyContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Still life”

#AMonthOnFilm – Through the doorway

23—Through the doorway Decided to take two shots—One of Ben and Abigail through the kitchen door playing a game for their 30 minutes together (Ben does something with each child individually for 30 minutes once each week) and one through the living room door looking outside at sunset. #amonthonfilm is a photo project with promptsContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Through the doorway”

#AMonthOnFilm – Self

22—Self Just a shot of myself wearing my NewSpring “faith moves mountains” shirt reflected in the big mirror on our bathroom door. Not fond of being captured with a camera and very slowly learning to see myself as part of God’s good creation—both inside and outside. My whole self has been on quite the journey,Continue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Self”

#AMonthOnFilm – A treasured possession

21—A treasured possession My wedding ring. It’s not worth a lot of money but it’s a reminder to me of Ben and my love for and commitment to each other, that God brought us together as friends who met at church. I am thankful to have my wedding ring after having a sudden weight gainContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – A treasured possession”

#AMonthOnFilm – Empty

20—Empty My empty Nalgene bottle. I try to drink 3 of these 32 ounce bottles of water each day. It has become such a habit I know about what time each day I will or will need to finish drinking the first 2 bottles to get in my regular amount. It helps me feel betterContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Empty”

#AMonthOnFilm – 8 a.m. bedsheets

19—8 a.m. bedsheets Wrinkled, unmade sheets at the foot of our bed after we got up on a dark and stormy morning. For me an empty bed is a big victory as it takes a tremendous amount of energy and work just to get out of bed each day. #amonthonfilm is a photo project withContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – 8 a.m. bedsheets”

#AMonthOnFilm – Something you dislike

18—Something you dislike I dislike severely struggling with my mental health (anxiety, depression, CPTSD) and all the treatment and hospitalizations I’ve endured that have caused further trauma and not helped which leaves fewer tools and options for recovery. I dislike how our culture and churches often act and live in ways that can cause furtherContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Something you dislike”

#AMonthOnFilm – Warmth

17—Warmth My blanket, Try Softer and something my therapist told me a few weeks ago typed on my phone all sitting on my lap. These things give me a feeling of warmth and safety. I am so thankful for them and their impact in my life. #amonthonfilm is a photo project with prompts hosted byContinue reading “#AMonthOnFilm – Warmth”
