Get a Boost of Joy to Get You Going again

Image 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 on to hear all the negative news or something came up against you to what you felt was setting the tone to how your day was going to unfold. Those few times turn into more often times that you are just going through the days not rea

Discover Yourself and Others....

  I grew a lot in getting to know myself better and opening my eyes to the world without even leaving home! Never in my life have I ever learned more about myself and why i do the things I do than when I have had to share my life with someone else. Now I am not just talking about say marrying someone and then living together or having a child and teaching them all the many things. No, I am talking about another way to learn these things, it was when my family and I truly were awakened through hosting an exchange student and sharing our cultures with one another. I found myself explaining so much in detail to help someone else understand my culture and help them to get to know who I am yet all along the way I begin to put a whole lot more thought into who I really am and how God created me to be. Let’s talk today about how this opportunity brought a whole new revelation to life by saying yes and allowing it to unfold. I never before thought so much about why I do things the way I do t

Hope is Important and We All Need it.

These past two years have been my most struggles in life. Somedays it is truly tough to remain positive isn’t it? There are days the negativity keeps coming, hitting a person like a fast moving train. We all need some good news, we need some hope. Now maybe some don't seem to be affected as others but I can assure you there are some of us who need to be able to see some relief, the light at the end of this dark long tunnel. We find ourselves feeling discouraged and depressed even. There are a lot of unsettling things going on so no wonder a person finds it difficult to stay upbeat. We do not often know how to or what to ask for and so often times that keeps us from reaching out for what we truly need because to be perfectly honest we may not even know what it is that we need to help us feel encouraged again. There is more than one way but, I have some important ways that I want to touch base on and share some of the lessons learned and words spoken that have helped me learn to enco

Have You Been Naughty or Nice?

To live a fulfilling life it  takes purposeful thought and of course courage, it always has, but it really does even more so in this day and times we are living in. Don't you think so? We live in a whole new time that is full of challenges for all people of all ages. Do not discount the children and young adults. There is still so much reason to be excited, for God is calling us to a new season. There is no way we can be Superman or Wonder Woman, and even if we could we definitely couldn't keep that going all the time, but we can strive to be the best we can be without feeling we have to over extend ourselves and by not doing so we can focus more on being mindful to take care of ourselves, get the proper rest and eat the right things and feed ourselves spiritually as much as we can. So yes we can be the best that we were meant to be to be able to fulfill God's calling upon our lives.  Spend the next 18 minutes of taking in some thought provoking encouragement as well as thi

We Need to Hear Good Things and Have Good Thoughts!

  Do you know the importance of affirmations? These are spoken words to you that motivates, inspires and encourages you to take action and to realize your goals. These words put together a sentence that you repeat often, in order to imprint it on your subconscious mind. This repetition can change your habits, behavior, point of view and your life. When thinking logically and when making decisions you have heard the phrase “Use your head. Your head/mind is the most powerful weapon you could ever posses. It is where your thoughts are created and it allows you to speak those thoughts out loud into the world. Your head can lead you to success or it can get you in a world of trouble. And just like any weapon that vessel gives you the ability of how to correctly use it for the opportunity to protect life or destroy it. I talk about how choosing our words can change our own lives as well as leave a legacy that impacts the lives of others. Also I touch on the impact other people have on us

Maybe there are somethings you want to "jump into" but you are not sure and afraid at times.

Maybe there are somethings you want to "jump into" but you are not sure and afraid at times. Maybe in the next 28 minutes of our story you will not just let it be a fleeing thought but, something you can take to God and give Him your faith as you decide on the next turning point in this "Life, it's a Big Faith Journey." Today is a very important life changing date December 1st for our family. What would have happened or been different had we not moved here? What would we have missed or not become or who would we have not met? Frightening and scary despite not knowing a soul in our new homeland thirty-three years ago, with God and our brave little family of five we crossed the Texas state line and became Texans. Despite all the fears and a few doubts that we might not last here, there was much more excitement and today in honor of our anniversary I share this faith journey with you.
