Naomi grew up as a missionary kid in Outer Mongolia before moving to Lakeland, Florida at the age of 18. A few years later, she graduated with a degree in graphic design, launched her own wedding photography business, and finally mastered the art of dressing for Florida weather. She met Matthew Vacaro in 2015, got married in 2017, and they had their first baby, a boy named Cove, in September of 2020. In early 2018 she felt led to create a devotional tool called the Quiet Time Companion, along with an online community of women who would be dedicated to encouraging each other in their daily walk with Jesus. By September 2018, the Quiet Time Companion was available to order and Wholehearted had taken its first steps! Now Naomi fills her days with mothering, homemaking, writing, and leading the Wholehearted community.

Maybe it seems as thought it’s a never ending chore, a task that simply has to “be done”, yet you long for it to be more than that, but just don’t know how. Maybe you’re in a season of delighting in the Lord, but you don’t know how or where or why to start in your quiet times.

“I know in my mind that God is good and that He saves, but I just don’t believe it.” These words from my child pierced through my heart like a jagged sword, ripping me apart as it penetrated the deepest parts of my identity as a mother. My thoughts overwhelmed me: “I definitely didn’t pray for her enough! I shouldn’t have stopped doing morning Bible studies with the kids! Why did I say yes to the ministry? This is the consequence of not prioritizing my home.” I went into a spiral, losing myself in guilt and shame. Then, I remembered that God is not a God who shames us or hands us over to guilt. Rather, He is filled with grace and mercy. He quieted my spinning mind and drew me near to His heart. He gave me the space I needed to mourn the deception in my child’s mind, and then He reminded me that He has the answers. Read Vanessa’s full blog post by clicking the link in our bio!

Are you frustrated with your own personal winter season? I hear you. There were a handful of moments during my winter storm that seemed pointless & draining— would I ever smile again? I didn’t think so. You know what’s ironic? March 2020, as the world shut down and spring was coming to life, I began to heal. The Lord was making all things new in my heart, & in my relationship with Him. I know He wants to do the same for you, friend. If you’re feeling stuck or frustrated, I encourage you to read all of 1 Peter. There is purpose IN the winter seasons, friends. Without it, our faith would be become more dependent on our efforts and less dependent on God. He can use ALL THINGS for our good and for His glory— rest in that.

👉🏻SWIPE THROUGH FOR PRAYER TIPS!! In Luke chapter 1 we meet Zechariah and his wife. The couple is identified as childless and the pair desperately want to build their family. However, we quickly discover that the two are simply going through the motions of a faith filled life without true belief. They follow the Lord’s commands religiously yet they do not exercise true trust in God. They prayed and prayed for a child but as soon as they discovered God had made it happen for them Zechariah doubted and questioned the possibility. How often do we pray empty prayers as Zechariah and Elizabeth did? We ask God for things without the true belief that He can make it happen for us. We pray for things without letting go and trusting our desires to the Lord. It can be hard to be authentic in prayer and even hard to catch ourselves going through the motions without truly understanding and accepting the power of prayer. Here are some tips to help you pray in real surrender to the Lord.” -Carey Fischer @carleyfish
It's true that God desires a relationship with us, not just repetitious, religious routines. But can a relationship thrive without intentional routine? Every healthy, fulfilling relationship requires self-control, consistency, and intention. That's why it's so important to sift through our competing desires, resist our culture's misplaced priorities, and pursue a daily, intentional relationship with Christ. Of course, we don't want our quiet times to be the only times we pray, but if our conversations with God are based solely on impulse, we will soon discover that other habits and routines will crowd out our best intentions. God never meant for our relationship with him to be entirely made up of mountaintop experiences and emotional highs. Rather, he desires ALL of us— our schedules, friendships, possessions, and priorities. He wants us to experience the depths and riches of his love, but these treasures lie on the other side of consistent faithfulness. Until we decide to make our relationship with Jesus ordinary, we will miss out on the extraordinary. Unless we welcome him into our daily schedules, our lives will move on without him.

Do you ever struggle to be intentional with your friendships, simply because you find it hard to keep everyone and what is important to them straight in your mind? Have you ever prayed for a friend, and the Lord answered in a way only He could, and you want a place to record His faithfulness in how He provided that sweet friend? Or maybe you have had a community of friends around you for years, yet you still long to form deeper, more intentional relationships with them. Our Community Companion is a planner for both of these scenarios.

“Watching the darkness outside my window give way to the light of day reminds me of the mercies I receive every morning. It’s a delight to meet with God in the quiet stillness before the chaos and busyness of the day. As I continue to meet with Him, He is always there for me. The more I choose to deny myself, put down the phone, or get up earlier the more I find a delight and a longing to be with God. My delight in what He is doing in my life grows along with the desire to know Him more.” Read Erica’s full blog post by clicking the link in our bio!
One of my favorite things about "Quiet" are the little Quiet Time Stories sprinkled throughout the chapters. 🤗 Over the years, I've collected personal testimonies from women all over the world who love spending time with Jesus. In their stories, I've seen honest struggles, humble surrender, and glorious victory as they have faithfully endured in seeking the Lord no matter what season they happened to be in! Getting to collect and curate these stories to include in "Quiet" was such a pleasure. I hope that these testimonies will encourage you and remind you that we are all in this together and that there is more than enough grace to go around. ❤️ "Quiet" releases oh so soon on April 5th! This means there are only 13 days left to pre-order and claim all of the bonuses. 😱 Head to the link in our bio for info on purchasing the book and claiming these freebies! With love, @naomivacaro
