Click here to listen to the whole podcast:   What's What Got to Do With It? SHOW NOTES Hello you, You are probably wondering what’s what got to do with what? Let me ask you what is going to sustain through the hard times, for hard times come and go, they never go away completely. You face a lot of things in life and it is nice to have someone along the way to get through those times in life. No one wants to be alone really. For Relationships and marriages to be strong and lasting it takes  effort and sacrifice.  Thats not so hard to do when you are googlie eyed and in love. So if you are thinking that changing partners is the answer, when things seem to not be going the way you have dreamed of, it is not. Why not? Well, because in every relationship, every marriage it will have it’s own fair share of problems. They may not be the same problems you had before, because problems will present themselves no matter who your partner is, no matter what marriage #1 or #2 etc  you are on. Ma

Firebase27 Studios

The progress of my studio has been slow.  Things have happened to disrupt the production of the construction which I feel is to be expected. Why? Because I never thought I would ever have a place of my own to do the calling of my work. I have always had to share a space. When I lost my job last year it was hard for me, and I never thought I would ever be able to do this work and follow this calling in the truest form. I didn't ask for this studio, but I was told one was being built for me. And with working from home I found how important it is for me to walk out the door each day and walk into my own studio/office to do my work. It allows me freedom to do what I am to do and focus on it and not be distracted by all the things of home and family. I have to look at it just as I used to when I went to the office each day. Working out of the closet has its challenges. I had some doors given to me for my studio and I was so thankful for them, but then I found these and they truly touche

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

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
