Let’s talk visualization for a minute or two. This picture was taken the first night we moved into our home just under a year ago. I remember sitting on this couch after friends had left, completely worn down but grateful and thinking about how much thought went into every detail of the house. Please note that the big ugly TV had not taken over my fireplace yet! 😉🙃 I often look back at this picture as a reminder of the power of visualization. I was reading a chapter in @msrachelhollis book this morning which talked all about this concept and realized it’s exactly what I’ve done to get what I really wanted in life. I would sit for hours in my bed at night dreaming of scenarios in this house. I could feel the warmth of the fireplace and the light coming through all the windows. I could imagine watching my children through the kitchen, playing outside on their play set while I cleaned dishes. I could go on and on. But, I want to tell you that at the time I was dreaming of this, we were in no financial situation to create our dream house. I had just quit a well paying job to be home with my babies and launch @catchthismama which was only costing us money. But I kept dreaming and scheming and making plans for how we could make it work. And soon enough, it was ours. I strongly believe if you want something, you’ll find a way even if you have no idea how you’ll do it in the beginning. You just need to know the why behind it and live for that every. single. day. 🖤🙏🏻🤗 Oh, and today is the last day for the $50 giveaway from Homemakers! Go two posts back and enter!!
“Home is where the heart is, and her heart will be here soon. But the kind word, the piece of advice, the friendly smile you give, might be just what she needs that day to bring her heart a bit closer to that epiphany we all have reached. That Northwest Arkansas is our home, and we adore it so.” My new post for @nwamomsblog {link in bio}, so I’m sharing a picture from our most recent move. If you wanted one from our initial move to #nwa, I wouldn’t have it. I was miserable, and alone, and if I’m completely honest, scared to death. So I’m showing you this one instead to prove IT DOES GET BETTER. You’ll find your tribe, your places, and your home here in our community. But that doesn’t lessen the ache of a new transition. To the new mom in town, I see you because I was you. And to the moms who call our area home, how can you reach out and welcome the newest residents of Northwest Arkansas? #momlife #ig_motherhood #featuremama #letthembelittle #mommyhood #motherhoodthroughig #dailyparenting #postthepeople #momcommunity #thehappynow #mommyblog #nothingisordinary #catchthismama #momofone #modernmom #mama #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #nwamom #nwa #uniteinmotherhood #momblog #ohmamamoment #arkansasmom #ownyourmomlife #teammotherly

Hey, I am Danie Gohr (@daniesmodernfarmhouse). Hump day seems likes a great day to do a little intro for the new followers of Catch This Mama! I’m 31 and still figuring out what I want to become in life. I recently heard Michelle Obama say you never need to know what you want to be when you grow up. Because, then it’s like you have a finite goal and often think once you’ve reached that goal you’ll feel like you’ve arrived and made it. But, I’m pretty sure we will never “arrive” or “make it”. I loved hearing this. I strongly dislike figuring out what my title is or what I do because it’s so boxy. I’m not a fit in the box type of gal. * * For the sake of an intro, I’ll tell you people come to Catch This Mama to find solutions to the challenges they face on a daily basis. Some things people come here for include getting their kids to sleep, finding their fashion style, finding their home style, keeping a clean house, overcoming adversity and even to hear us recap a book. * * I don’t know what brought you here or why you enjoy seeing posts from us, but I’m going to put a bunch of words below. These words resonate with me because of my life’s work. I’d love to know what words connect us. What words below have you saying, #metoo! Drop me a comment with the words that feel like they are a part or desire of yours too! Mother, Wife, Daughter, Funny person, Podcaster, Reader, Learner, Event Planner, Interviewer, Giver, Go-ER, Cleaner, Believer, Game Changer, Risk Taker, Teacher, Coach, Mistake Maker, Impulsive at times, big time Grace Receiver, continuously working to be a big time Grace Giver. *💃🙋🏻‍♀️ * I can’t wait to see your words below! ❤️🖤 #metoo
When this photo was taken over 2.5 years ago I never would have guessed I’d be sitting on the couch today with a sleeping babe in my lap. I didn’t know how amazing and challenging marriage to my best friend would be. I didn’t know I’d only teach for 3 years. And I didn’t know I’d be starting a business surrounding my passion and helping my husband do the same. . Life is crazy that way, you guys. When I’m feeling overwhelmed trying to plan my future or envisioning what these next 2.5 years will be like, I look to these two verses: ☝🏻 “Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!” ‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:24‬ ‭NIV‬‬ ✌🏻 “Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:6‬ ‭NLT‬ . God’s got your future. And He’s way better at planning it than you are. . . . . . .

As parents, we heard a lot from our predecessors about how their kids would turn out, or what they would achieve, maybe what kind of job they would procure as an adult. . . But why was parenting considered a goal-oriented task ending at our children reaching adulthood? And, why was this a stagnant, almost still frame, vision of a child educated and conditioned into a specific role instead of an in-motion, ever-changing, fluid being constantly evolving with an immense capacity to expand? . . We are constantly evolving. By being best of friends with our inner guidance we have all the truth, understanding and knowledge necessary to go wherever our ever-changing desires attract along our path. . . Have you set an educational itinerary for your kids? Or is education a daily passion of what thrills your child?
Christmas is 22 days away! And if you’re like me you’ve had your decorations up for quite a while and you’re kind of regretting this decision since your small children think the next day is going to be Christmas. Every. Day. Poor kids! 😬 Although we did just bring our Elf On The Shelf back, Lola is her name. And Lola has really been a game changer around the Ferguson household. The second my older girls are fighting over a light up princess wand and I say, “Hey Lola is watching and will tell Santa.” The princess wand drops to the floor and they turn into two perfect angels! 😉❤️ Am I the only one who loves this little elf!? 😂 #momlife #ig_motherhood #mommyhood #adventuresofchildren #clickinmoms #dailyparenting #postthepeople #momcommunity #thehappynow #mommyblog #catchthismama #our_everyday_moments #modernmom #mama #momswithcameras #honestmotherhood #uniteinmotherhood #momblog #vscomom #ohmamamoment #ownyourmomlife #igmom #elfontheshelf #teammotherly #mom_hub
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas! Now that my work is all at home, I want nothing more than SNOW. All the snow. ⛄️❄️ Thanks to @thefauxmartha for gifting me the tip of using photo hangers for the garland! Brilliant! ❤️💃
We said good-bye to these sweet twin beds and hello to a triple bunk! Swipe right to see the inspo @fergmama shared with me. It gave me all the feels and I can’t wait to decorate the room for all three of them to sleep in!
It’s boot weather. Are you at the point where you are anxiously awaiting snow or are you hoping for it to stay away for as long as possible? Grab all things cozy today! Link in profile. 🙌🏻🌲🥰
We went to a housewarming party today. When we arrived with all the kids + gift in tote my sweet Everly puked all over their doorstep. Twice. Welcome to your new home! That has to be good luck to the homeowners right? 😬 Needless to say we are at home drinking some soda and crackers. My Grandma use to always give us a little coke when we were sick. She called it black medicine. 🥰What are your favorite nostalgic remedies for sickness?
I didn’t share my gratitude yesterday because I was driving the 12 hours from Marion back to Denver. So you all are getting double duty on my gratitude today. Seems fitting on the last day of my November intention to practice gratitude every day. Today I am grateful for: . . 1)The gentleman at my local grocery store who dug through all of his unopened boxes to find the organic half-and-half I was seeking. . . 2)The other gentleman at the same store who exclaimed “Merry Christmas” to me with so much joy and love in his whole person as I wheeled my Christmas tree to my car. . . 3)My windshield wipers. Even if not in the best shape they still do a better job than not having them at all! . . 4)The feeling of being in alignment and the mass quantity of ideas that flow when I am. . . 5)The overwhelming feeling that has overtaken me that everything will be OK. . . 6)The refreshing and grounded feeling I get after a good rain. . . 7)The movie “Elf.” I don’t think this one needs any further explanation. . . 8)the long lifelines of so many of my family so I could know them and appreciate their stories with my adult perspective. . . 9)understanding half of the people who follow me on Instagram each week also unfollow me in the hopes of achieving the perfect following to follower ratio. I don’t take it personal anymore and instead can engage with like-minded folks! . . 10)being so inspired that work never feels like a burden. . . Happy holidays and winter solstice.
Heading to @disneyonice tonight and I keep repeating, “I will not buy the overpriced merchandise for my kids, I will not buy the overpriced merchandise for my kids...” But the second I get an adorable smile like this and a, “please Mommy?” I’m toast. Anyone else out there a big sucker like me? 😉🙋🏼‍♀️
Sisters + Best Friends When we moved into our new home we wanted to make sure everyone had their own room. We should have known better. All three of them demand to sleep in the same room. Anyone have a triple bunk bed they love. 🤪😂
