So You Want To Be A Creator

What no one ever tells you about following your dreams.

When it comes to being a creator, specifically in my case, building businesses from the ground up. . . there is so much no one tells you. All the how-to posts, the “get rich quick” mentality, the excitement and the hype. Some people look at the Instagram, Youtube and Facebook creators and think they have it made. That they got rich quick and found the answer to success. And there’s a part of us that really wants to see that dream come true for ourselves. Read More »

Say Yes To No

Say yes to no

 

How is that little conundrum for you? Honestly, I am writing this post for myself, so if you see me not doing what I preach, call me out. Nicely, of course. 😉

But honestly, when did it become a bad thing to say no? Where did we fall off the tracks of setting boundaries and let our fences be blown over without a fight? Since medieval times, territories and boundaries were fiercely fought for. Someone steps a toe on your property? Hit them over the head! Well, those were called the dark ages for a reason, but where did it become a wrong move to stand up for your own boundaries? No murdering or hitting over the head necessary. Read More »

Living In Relationship With God

Living in relationship with God

I feel like I’ve talked on this topic before, but it has been striking home to me more of late. But, first, there is something that I must stress to you.

God is a relational God. What that means, my dear ones, is that He is seeking you. He is chasing after you, desiring you to turn to Him and to create a relationship with Him. He loves you THAT much. He wants to see your face, to hold your heart in His hands, to be in communion with your spirit. Not because he wants to keep tabs on you. Not because He wants to make sure you are doing all the right things. Not because He is waiting for you to mess up.Read More »

Listen and Obey // Hearing God’s Voice

Listen and Obey

This topic is so far reaching and I could speak so much about it. Part of the purpose of this blog is to share my heart with you and this is something that has been becoming more and more a part of my life as God continues to do more and pour our more of His spirit on me and my family. I’ll start off by telling you a little story because one of the things that builds our faith is by hearing the stories of how God works in His children’s lives encourages us.

There are so many times in life when I don’t obey God’s voice, so I’m not perfect and I am still learning, but this past weekend, I had a huge opportunity that I was so thankful I didn’t blow past.Read More »

The “My Testimony is Worthless” Syndrome

My testimony is worthless syndrome

I’m sure you have heard it before, and if you are anything like me, you probably felt it before as well. My testimony is worthless, do I even have a testimony? What’s the point of sharing anything about my life when no one is going to be able to relate to it? I don’t come from anything crazy, I don’t have anything special. Read More »

Why I Want To Homeschool: Creativity

homeschool

On a much lighter note this week, I am here to talk about creativity.

In my homeschool experience, I was very fortunate. Homeschooling gave me the opportunity, the parents, and the time to explore my creative niches which then blossomed into several entrepreneurial businesses, websites etc. If I had been to school and had to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day, I would never had the time or energy to learn how to knit, crochet, sew, cook, bake, write, blog, design, and numerous other activities that I found great delight, purpose, and joy in.Read More »
