Rise up with what is in Your Hands

This is our final post in this series “Rise Up!” I hope you have enjoyed these messages over this week and have been challenged to look around at the opportunities in your life where you can increase your influence or impact.

For this final video I share, Rise Up with what is in your hands.

Our story comes from Judges 4:17-24 where we meet a woman named Jael.

We don’t know much about her except that she was supposed to be on the side against the Israelites, but when the opportunity came she actually helped the Isrealites become free.

Rise up for Others

This past Sunday, I heard a message about Rising Up and in my heart I just knew that so many of us were feeling comfortable and needing to Rise up where we are.

Yesterday, I shared the first video Rising to the Opportunity and today I’m sharing the second part: We Rise for Others.

I love how this message relates to a book I’m currently reading called Chase the Lion and teaching why we should Dream Big. I hope that this inspires you to Dream Bigger because your dream may inspire others to dream too.

Rise up to the Opportunity

Yesterday at church, a message was shared about Rising Up… and it got me thinking about all the opportunities in our lives that God has called us to stretch ourselves so that His mission can be completed.

In my video, I talk about our personal seasons where God has called us from being comfortable to uncomfortable. I’ve learned that God calls us to go, move, rise… He doesn’t want us to settle.

I feel like all of us are called to do something that can make an impact. He gives us opportunities where we can have more influence over the people around us for good!

Frozen Pineapple Healthy Summer Treat

You will be ready for summer with my newest Pineapple Obsession!!

You know when you go to Disney and they have those special frozen pineapple desserts everyone raves about??

Well, besides the ice cream and all that sugar… it really does tastes delicious! Haha!

One thing that I think sets this treat apart is that we added my favorite protein powder to add extra protein.

Why is protein so important??

Protein keeps us full longer (less sugar crashes). It can energize your workouts, build lean muscle mass, and support your healthy metabolism!

When I found out I was pregnant… there were lots of thoughts racing through my head… am I ready for another baby?? Do we have everything we need? Do I have the energy to start over again?

She starting thinking “How can I change this?? How can we increase our income so we can move into the house our family needs??”

Interview: Essential Oils for Newbies

About 10 years ago, I did an overhaul of my whole life!

I was having some health issues going on… and the doctors really couldn’t tell me why!

So I started reading a lot about natural health and ways to get rid of some chemicals or toxins in my daily life… and one discovery I found was essential oils!

I made some simple DIY recipes and was able to replace so many thing in my house with the natural resources.

I had the privilege to interview one of my favorite chiropractors and mom friends, Dr.Shauna and I’m thrilled that I can share that here with you!

Turn Your Mess into your Message

The more I learn about successful people is that most of them have a lot of mess in their life… they had a lot that they had to overcome to get to the place where they are now.

It is interesting how some of them were able to use the mess in their life to create their message which led to their mission.

What if the same thing is happening to us? 

Are we going through a mess right now so that we can give hope to someone in the future? Or is this developing our message so that we can develop our mission? Watch my video below to hear more of my thoughts on this:

How to Discover your Gift

One of my favorite parts of my business is getting to coach people and help them develop their gifts.

What is your gift and how to you discover it??

Your gift is usually the thing that comes most natural to you (you don’t even realize that other people struggle with it!) Sometimes the best way to figure out what your gift is… is to ask someone who is close to you “What is something I’m really good at?”

Watch More: How to Discover your Gift

When I started my business.. I really didn’t have a clue what my gift was or even had a place to develop and grow it. That’s one thing that I love about owning your own business is that it forces you to stretch yourself and develop like no other thing can.

Do you have a God Sized Dream?

I just started reading a new book with our leadership team, and it has already spoke to me so much I had to share with you!

The book we are reading is Chase the Lion by Mark Batterson – “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough”

I’m only on chapter 5 and I’ve already been convicted to much!

Watch this video to hear some of the major insights so far:

Biggest take-aways so far:

1) The size of your dreams is the clearest picture of the size of your God

Wow… right to my heart. This one quote really stuck out to me as something that I need to hold tight to. When I think “I can’t do that” – what I’m saying is “My God isn’t big enough to use me.”
