Would you say God speaks to you for your business?
Where do you get your business ideas?
"Now about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them;  and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains were unfastened."
I sometimes get ideas for business while worshipping God in praise and worship. God can speak while you are worshipping Him.
I have gotten a breakthrough while worshipping. I even…
Could you imagine losing the Son of God?
I cannot imagine what Mary and Joseph were feeling especially if they knew that Jesus was the Son of God. I mean, they must have been going out of their minds. Not only because it was their child but because He is the Son of God.
Once my kids were “ripped away” from me. They were only 2 and 3 years old. I knew where they were physically, but they were “lost” to me, not home with me, their mother.
The how will come... little by little... because you held the vision and didn't give up... it will come.
Making your environment conducive to receiving the vision in reality.
I cleaned up my wardrobe in expectation.
I prayed for him daily without knowing his name.
I continued living life using and developing my gifting. I didn't just sit around doing nothing while waiting.
I also had a rule that I didn't want to marry anyone that I just had chemistry with. I wanted to marry my friend. …
Who are you meeting these days?
Do they inspire greatness or detract from who you are?
Are they a positive addition or not?
I have met some lovely people over the years. People who were a positive addition for the most part. And the negative ones, I took a lesson from what types to avoid and lessons on how not to be for myself.
I wrote about part of my journey as a single stay-at-home mother for 16 years. The small book takes about an hour to read and is full of insights I gained about my own financial journey…
So Long to Things Not Needed
Day 21 of my 30 day minimalist challenge
Spent the morning at church with my kids and grandkids. Getting ready for baby dedications real soon.
I got baby bottle milk on my pant slacks from the youngest. I'm sure they aren't stained forever.
Then I spent the evening with hubby who wanted to go shopping. My husband wanted to go clothes shopping. He bought himself some clothes and for me, I got a new pair of pants.
So I'm always inspired to give away clothes that don't fit right after bringing new ones home…
Who or What Harasses You?
Does having too many things harass you? Does someone asking too many personal questions harass you? What is the harassing forces in your life and what will be your answer this week when that issue comes up?
As a consultant to Single Parents, I get to listen to parents as they volunteer information to me and ask my advice. That's the appropriate way to get information from people...they volunteer the information.
I like to succeed at whatever task is before me. How about you? My business motto is Choose to Succeed. …
Who is your focus on?
Who's your focus on?
It's hard sometimes to take a bold step that might leave you misunderstood... by humans. I'm doing my best to Keep God as my forward focus and in my rearview mirror as well.
When your eyes are on people, you can find yourself making decisions to please them or for the sake of not stirring up their wrath or displeasure in you.
But how can one be truly authentic in the space they currently live? How can we face our family, our bosses and others without feeling muted? …
Day 9 of my 30 day minimalist challenge. I am challenging myself to get rid of 5 things per day.
As I sit here watching the movie, Victoria and Abdul, I find it fascinating and exhilarating that this woman at 81 years old has accomplished so much.
More than 20 years older than I am now, I look forward to doing more great things in my life.
I think it was great that I got to be a single stay at home mom for my now grown daughters. I think it was great that I wrote my first book. …
So it's depressing to think that as of day 5 I have not run out of things to get rid of. Things that had it not been for the minimalist challenge, would still be taking up space in my brain and home.
Meanwhile, I've recently learned that some people with OCD can't throw things away. I used to just blame my parents and envy people who didn't live in clutter.
Even with being a "pack rat" for most of my life, I thought I could just stop it. And the papers keep coming. I keep buying clothes but not getting…
Don’t Back Down
Having just watched this movie from my local library, I watched people fight for what they want. What are you fighting for?
I think about my grand children’s education and I want the best for them and that they won’t get passed over for any reason. I homeschooled my girls and there was no such thing as a failing grade in my school. We just kept at it or changed the curriculum to fit their need(s).
This movie is about education. And it is also about passion. As I sit here nearing 60 really fast, I ponder…
