MEET JORDAN

With a vision to one day stay at home with my family while still contributing financially, I started a small Etsy shop from a storage closet in college. Overtime, that small shop grew and evolved into a community for young women looking for practical tools to navigate life with grit, grace, and faith. So around here, you'll find resources and tools to help you steward your home, health, and work well.

Positive Ways to Deal with Negative or Unwanted Opinions

  1. Samantha says:

    I always get the question, “When are you getting married?” My boyfriend and I are not even engaged yet! But my co-workers and family have asked that question multiple times. It really feels like a cut to the heart.
    Truth is: we have things we both are working on emotionally that need to be addressed before getting engaged.
    I usually try to brush it off with one of those easy remarks you were talking about. Laughing it off with,”It’s not my decision. Haha.” or even “Whenever God decides it’s time.” But honestly it does hurt when they ask those harmless questions. For now, I continue to answer with those easy remarks and a smile across my face. And internally I am praying for those moments to hurt a little less.
