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! read more

Why I support Home Based Businesses

Can I be honest…

 

Okay, thanks.

 

I used to avoid buying from home based businesses (many of which were MLM’s as I would call them). I didn’t understand them… and what I was exposed to was lots and lots of really bad marketing that did more to turn me off than to get me interested.

 

This is so bad… but I remember there was a product I was interested in… and I searched for a way to order it so I wouldn’t have to order it through an MLM company. I also have to add that I’m a huge introvert and honestly try to avoid going to any party lol read more

How to Think like a Success

The more I am in business with entrepreneurs and successful people, the more I realize that success is more about what you think.

It’s not who you are that holds you back, It’s who you think you are not.

If you want to be successful in anything, you have to start believing that YOU CAN be successful!! You have to think like a successful person. That doesn’t mean that you won’t fail… quite frankly it means you will fail more than others. I have learned that every failure brings us closer to our next success. 

You have to take the lid off yourself and dream bigger than ever before.

With our team, we encourage everyone to create dream boards. This simple activity allows you to focus on what you want to work for… if you had no limits (time, money, vacation days) what would you want your day to look like? read more

Why it should rain on your Wedding Day

Adam and I were married young O.o 

I didn’t realllllly realize how young we were at the time lol but I was 19 and he was 21. We had been together for one year when we got engaged and then were married a year later.

and we were in love.

wedding day

I’m sure that there were plenty of people who didn’t think that getting married young was a good idea… but I’m happy to report that we are going to be celebrating our 12 year anniversary in May!!!

I have no regrets for getting married young. I feel like we have been able to grow up together and that has strengthen our relationship too. As I think back to that day… May 28, 2004, I really believe that I learned something crucial. read more

Thoughts of Thanksgiving

Happy November!!!

‘Tis the season to celebrate how good God has been to us and His promises.

November is one of my favorite times of the year. It is just starting to get cooler and I don’t feel guilty listening to Christmas music (hehe).

It is also a time to reflect on this past year and how Faithful God has been to us.

Four years ago, I was 9 month pregnant with my first… waddling around the neighborhood on Thanksgiving day trying to get this baby to decided that she was ready to meet us (my due day was Thanksgiving day). About a week later, she entered the world – and my world has never been the same. read more

What’s the Deal with It Works?

Some of you may have seen that I have recently joined and started building a team with It Works. I wanted to share with you what my goals are and why I chose It Works Global. 

A) I love the products!

I started using the products last year and just was amazed with the quality of everything. Plus how the products were actually working.

I started using the wraps, because that is what pulled me in when a friend told me about how she saw instant results. I used a wrap myself and saw the same thing!

Hello!

These wraps were used in Europe spas for years costing $300… and now we can try them for only $25? How cool is that.

How to keep Growing in Life

How to keep growing in life

How to keep growing and to have life among the growing.

Life Among the Growing…. What does that actually mean to me?

This phrase really speaks to me deeply in several ways.

First, I think about how I want to be continually growing into a better person with each day and opportunity I get. If you aren’t moving forward, you are moving backwards. If you aren’t growing, you are dying. 

This is in my personal life as a wife and mom. In my spiritual life, I want to continually study and grow in God’s words. read more

Confessions of a Church Hunter

We just moved to Richmond, Va. Along with hunting for a house we had to also “hunt” for a new church. I know that some of you are our friends and know how involved we were at Water’s Edge, our church in Lake Charles.

Water’s Edge was one of the reasons it was very hard to leave Lake Charles. We had been on the launch team and seen it grow from about 25 people to over 1,200 people in under 5 years. It was such a special journey and we met some awesome people along the way. read more
