Let’s Share (Beauty Tips)

i_love_blogging1I love blogging! Why? Because I get to interact and learn from people all over the world! What have I determined from our interactions? People, for the most part, want to help. We are generally kind hearted!

Not too long ago, I asked a question of all who visit this community: How do you do it?

You see, I wanted to know what others do to  meet the demands of life! I received great suggestions. Feel free to read through the comments to see what you might benefit from. For I have put a few of the suggestions into practice and am currently working on others. Continue reading

No Fear!


, , , , ,

The only thing we have to fearPsalm 27: 1-3

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.

Motivation Mondays

Motivations Monday 2 (1).jpgNow to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us (Ep 3:20).

From the moment I heard this quote, I loved it! Why? Because it speaks to many of us who are the unlikely sort. No one would ever have thought this little…

At 22 years old, I completed my undergraduate degree, with a face and body younger than my stated age. Many people looked through me, not believing I had what it takes to get the job done.

Oh but I knew… Continue reading

Calling all stay at home moms, work at home moms, full-time working moms, part-time working moms, grandmom, and not a mom’s (yep. I gave great advice- and then I had my own)! Please share…

So I have a small confession- life for me can be pretty hectic. Being a full-time working wife and mother, can be just a wee bit overwhelming!

Life’s Little Lesson

life's little lesson

It’s early Tuesday morning. I am on my way to my second drop off, before heading to work. I left the house enjoying the breeze, now I find myself in the middle of a thunderstorm. So sudden. What was a bright, smooth, breezy ride, is now a dark turbulent ride. My car appears to shudder with each pounding raindrop. My daughter is going to be late for school and me? Definitely late for work! Continue reading

It’s been a little while since my last Live Like it Matters Challenge. The challenges were initially a weekly feature posted on Wednesdays but lately I’ve issued them on different days and not weekly. I will continue to issue the challenges randomly for now.

My challenge to you today is to think about the next person, then act accordingly. You probably already do this. Like when you take your empty grocery cart to the corral, you’re thinking of the guy who will park his shiny new car in the parking lot AND the clerk who has to gather the carts to take them into the store.

My dad was the most excellent Next One Thinker I’ve known and actually inspired this challenge.  More than a year past his death and one of his small acts of “nextness” was appreciated by my husband. The screws to the flat screen TV mount were…

Missing the Mark

Growing up in a Pentacostal Church, I’ve heard my fair share of “Fire and Brimstone” messages.

As a little girl, I remember shaking in my ruffled dress, at the thought of being eternally banned to that horrid place called hell- without any water or relief.  Church messages usually sent me home to take an inventory of my most recent acts. Mmmm, I did lie to sister about trying on her dress; and the way I talked to mama- that was bad. Continue reading
