Leading in Life and in Teams (Podcast Ep.15)

Image
Welcome to Life, it’s a Big Faith Journey. I am your host Diana Hudgins. My podcast and writings are about faith one for it is my testimony as well as the fact that daily life takes faith, to do a lot of what we do. Somedays it takes faith and courage to get out of bed and face the day and show up. We aspire to succeed and do great things. I can’t help but think of   Travis Tritt’s song “I’m Gonna Be Somebody.”   We all have dreamt of being someone someday. But to be truthful you already are. You just have to decide to get up and take part of what God has in store for you today. He wants us all to lead a good life. He calls His children to rise up and so, let’s talk leadership, and being a leader that people will remember.  Let’s also talk about teamwork. Let’s talk how to lead successfully. It might take a little more effort on your part but these lessons are easy to to comprehend and remember.  Before we ever begin to work on a team at our jobs, we have been learning since the days o

I Love the Mornings Where I can Work Outside

I love the opportunity of these mornings when I can work outside instead. My co-workers are the very best. They never complain and as long as I fed them and spend time with them they believe in me. Click on each picture as I introduce you to them. Hank AKA "Hanker Pank and Hank the Cow Dog." Momma and Daddy rescued him at 1 1/2 years old. At that time we were his 3rd owners. He was chained to a carport in East Texas. When we got him he didn't like any animals and he was always jumping our fence. So after replacing the fence he loves his look out tower.                                                He is gentle and loves everyone who means no harm.He roamed around the yard with the chickens. Our sweet boy has come so far.                                                                                                               Meet Tiger. He fit in my hand once upon a time. This is Birdie. She was so friendly that we saved her from harm. She truly loves her Momma and I

A Seasonal Approach to Lifestyle Changes

Image
Hey everyone can you believe it's almost October? It got me to thinking about seasons as we are approaching Fall. We often hear people talk about seasons of life. They say such things as "Oh what a tough season this has been" or "I am entering into a new season of life."  In this episode I share my testimony of how some "new season resolutions" in my life clicked and became part of my life.  When I was a student I found myself living and planning my life in semesters. I loved the semesters of planning goals and reaching those goals in short periods of time actually. Planning my life in semesters was really good for me. Those short term goals got me to the ultimate goal, the degree in which I was earning.  There were a lot of semesters and after three degrees so I missed school and my semester planning my life out in that way but, thank God I learned to live my life in seasons. My husband is probably happy about that too. You know there were things like

We were all called to be leader starting with our own choice of how we live our lives. Yes, there are great leaders and there are mediocre leaders and then just really poor leaders. Which one are you?   God has called each one of us to be the light unto the world. So regardless of whether you chose to be, you are an example to others, you are a leader. The question is what kind are you? You were called and appointed to this. It’s one of those “If no

 Click to "Read More" then on this link to Listen:  News From My Prayer Closet Are you worried and living in some fear ? Does one day seem to be ok and the next you live in upset? Or say life just isn’t want you want it to feel like?   I want to talk a little about prayer today and then I want to pray a special prayer over all of us. I feel so much better as soon as I begin to talk to God. When things bother me I am reminded of Who my God is.   I cannot begin to express the relief I feel when I begin speaking out loud to God about Who He is to me. As you are thinking about all that bothers you listen carefully to Who God is to me and you can say it right along with me and see how this makes you feel. He is my provider, my healer, my Lord, my Father, my savior, my comforter, my teacher, my faithful leader. When He is your everything the list of Who He is to you never ends. When I simply began saying Who He is to me peace overcomes me. We are living in some tough times but you

Have We Lost Our Joy?

  Episode 10 is here. You know when you get to feeling your life is just stuck and you just can’t seem feel upbeat because you are just not feeling the enthusiasm for life? Or are you someone that feels that this is it, life isn’t never going to get any better? Are you so bogged down by the talk of the world? Being selective and then being intentional is really important to your overall health. Feeling encouraged and alive is much more than what foods you chose to take into your body, its about all the things you chose to ta into your overall well being. You have found times you just feel numb to many things, you feel tired, your semi-happy emotions, your basic mediocre contentment level has finally learned to settle for this speed. You wake up feeling a little more motivated and thinking just maybe I can reach higher today, but all those thoughts are shot down before you even really get your day started? All because someone said something that didn’t set right with you or you turned
