As you scroll through your social media feed of yesterday's #4thofjuly posts, are you falling into the comparison trap? Is scrolling through the images of girls with perfectly tan skin, slim bellies, beachy hair, super cropped tops and super cheeky shorts making you feel like your not ______ enough? I write this because I've been there too… I've always loved the 4th of July, but getting on social media the next day just seems to boil up some deep rooted insecurities. Can you relate!? So here's a photo of me and Jeremy witth my not so tanned skin, my not so slim belly, and my not so sexy dress. Don't fall into the pit of lies that Instagram tries to throw at you with today. You are more precious that rubies (Proverbs 3:15). You are the crowned jewel of His creation. Your beauty is not defined by your hair and skin, it's defined by your heart and soul. Choose to claim the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit today (1 peter 3:4). #journeyofjerandauj #beating50percent

Of course your belly is “not-so-slim.” You’re pregnant for Pete’s sake!
Auj is due with her first child with her husband, Jeremy, on Aug. 31. Ahead of their baby girl’s arrival, the reality TV family celebrated her baby shower this weekend — complete with their daughter’s cousin, Jackson, and his parents, Tori and Zach Roloff.
“Thanks to my sister and best friend for throwing me such a beautiful and special baby shower. And thanks to my mom for hosting,” she gushed on Instagram. “I’m feeling very blessed to have such faithful, thoughtful, loving, and prayerful friends and family as I embark on the journey of motherhood. I’m feeling a little more prepared for your arrival, baby girl.”
We can’t wait to meet her!
