The Game Changer

napoleon-hill-writer-your-big-opportunity-may-be-right-where-you-are
There really are times when we have one opportunity to choose something that is a game changer. I had that opportunity over a year and a half ago. Choosing to say “yes” when a friend offered something that had the capability of helping my body get well, was one of those game changing decisions. Many of you already know my amazing experience of overcoming 15 years of severe depression and anxiety by just starting to take an all natural, whole-food nutritional supplement called Zeal Wellness. What you don’t know is what it has done for my family and for my marriage. I know it seems a little overboard to say that one product has been the catalyst for miracles in so many needed area’s, but the fact of the matter is, it has! It’s because of the nature of what is being offered….. answers to personal health problems.

Another game changer came when I shared this with my 9 year old daughter, Zeal Wellness helped with her inability to focus. As a 9 year old, she went from not being able to even sit for 10 minutes to being able to sit and focus well for a half hour to 45 minutes. She went from struggling with her reading and thinking she was stupid, to excelling and having confidence to move forward in doing hard things. Game changer!
The 3rd game changer came for my husband. Forrest has struggled with being overweight throughout our marriage, this has been a concern for me because of the history of heart problems and diabetes. It has been an issue of conflict between us. Since starting in December of last year He has lost 56 pounds and is continuing to take good care of himself. Complete Game Changer for him and our marriage!
I Understand, that these are our experiences with Zeal Wellness. Every body is different.

The most profound blessing that has come from my decision over a year ago is being a part of a group of people that focus on serving the individual and changing lives. I have been so humbled and blessed to see the blessings of friends and family getting well in their health, getting their drive and hope back for life. Another Game Changer for me! And here is the biggest one now! Forrest and I are just coming back together after a 9 month separation, this opportunity to work together in putting our whole hearts in serving others, is a saving grace for us. It is empowering us to move from a selfish relationship to a selfless one. This, my friends, is the biggest blessing yet. When we meet our goal this month it will forever change our lives as it will put our feet on a path, spiritually ,mentally, physically and emotionally different then our previous years of marriage. We not only welcome the change, but are running to it with all we have, we know it truly is our opportunity to create something new and good within us, within our relationship and with our family. Thank God for opportunities!

SO, why am I sharing all this? That’s where you come in…I want to reach out to you who need a game changer right now. Maybe in your health, maybe in your life, maybe in your relationships. My heart is so full of the desire to see you heal and thrive, like we have been given the opportunity to do, that I’m willing to use a blog post to invite! Crazy! Honestly, if you have been praying for a change and there is something that resonates with what I have shared with you….please reach out to me. Is it time for you to change the game in your life? Could this be the catalyst for you also? Let’s find out!

Healing Hearts And Marriages

Many of you that know me, know that I have been in a separated relationship with my husband for 9 months, God used that time to teach and refine me. Truly when we turn our lives over to the Lord, we do not always know the coarse or see the way, but we can be of good comfort knowing that He has a plan and He will lead and guide, bless and direct if we let Him. I’ve learned this journey called life is about choices, it’s about what we cultivate in our hearts and minds that assist in creating the life we live. I have witnessed God’s mighty power and grace in our lives and surely God is truly a God of Miracles. He does the work of light and love, He has the power to touch hearts and heal in ways that no human being can. Our family has been touched and blessed by the Grace of God and we truly have received miracles and for this I am forever grateful.

Forrest and I had an opportunity to go to Nashville with our company, to learn the business, to connect with friends and to be inspired. I had a prayer in my heart going on this trip, that parts of my heart would be healed and softened towards Forrest as we have just begun to come together again and to heal and put back the pieces of our shattered hearts and relationship. Forrest made it easy to strive for this as he focused the entire trip on what he could do for me and for our team. His desire to serve and his willingness to sacrifice his own needs began to soften my heart and open my eyes to the man that he is striving to become. I will not lie, I felt much conflict and fear realizing that I needed to open my heart more to him and be vulnerable. I fought it and I had to surrender to feelings of remorse of leaving the single life behind as I was seeing that as freedom. Mostly, I had to face the deep fear that I had, the fear of being vulnerable and the possibility of being hurt again or falling into the same patterns. God had spoken over and over again, that some of that was in my control. It is how I chose to see the relationship, it was how I chose to act. It wasn’t until I took a stand within myself, that I made a clear decision to try again, to give it all I had to heal and do things differently that clarity came.

Sunday morning we attended the services that the company provided as they are a Christian-based company and it had been our experience in the past that so much good was done there and we had felt the Spirit of the Lord so strongly and been taught. We had come to love their Sunday services and the experience of feeling the energy of the love of Christ permeate a huge room and fill us up. It was during this service that the Lord spoke right to my heart. He said ” Your marriage is healed, see it has healed.” Move forward with this in your heart and mind. This thought broke through the darkness and confusion and was an answer of great hope and healing for me. I understood what the Lord was implying and teaching me…”see the thing you wish to be, create by your belief and your attitude and your vision what you want it to be. Act as if it already is.” I understand now that when we have a dream or a vision and hold fast to that, keep that in our minds eye and act in faith as if that has already become a reality, we actually call it into reality with greater speed and power.

We are living in a time when everything that we need is literally at our finger tips. The Lord is waiting to bless us with all that we need if we will but ask in faith and then act as if it has already been given. This is putting faith in action and using our agency to stand in our power to choose our lives. Our minds are very powerful and thoughts create. If you are in a place in your life that you do not like, if you are in a situation that you want to change. Ask the Lord to help you change your vision, switch your thoughts to what you do want and align your actions as though it has already happened. This brings magic to mayhem. It immediately puts you in a place of power in your life. The Lord wants us to stand in our power and to be powerful like He created us to be. We literally have the ability to create our lives by the thoughts we focus on and the intention we take our action in. I am grateful to know that I am on the path of healing and look forward to the many days of happiness ahead.

Do The Thing You Fear

norunningaway

As I have returned home from a Zeal For Life business convention, all fired up and ready to go, ready to move mountains in myself and in others, I realize fear is the number one obstacle that keeps me from moving forward. I have a new motto now….”do the thing you fear!” This has given me guidance and helped me day to day build confidence in myself. When we know we are afraid of something, especially of doing something we know we need to do or God has asked us to do, when we move through the fear and do it, we are blessed with confidence. Every day I use this motto as my gauge and my encouragement. If I find myself feeling down, or wandering around in confusion I ask myself “what are you afraid of doing?” “what are you avoiding doing?” and when I identify it, that is what I do that day, the very thing I am avoiding because it is the #1 thing I need to do that day or I would not be getting opposition. As I have been doing this, I realize my confidence and peace grows strong, I feel in control of my life and myself. When we move through our fears and are proactive in facing them we are empowered to be in a place of action to use our agency, instead of being in a place of reaction and feeling controlled. It is liberating to conquer our fears, to move through them and beyond, for God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of courage! So today, I say “rise up!”. Identify your fears, face them and move through them to a life of greater freedom. This life is about acting, creating, growing….the more we get out of our comfort zone, the greater our ability is to be led by an all loving and knowing God and to partner with Him in helping ourselves and others in profound ways. Rise up, face those fears, do the thing you fear and move into freedom and peace!

Do you believe in Miracles?

Have you ever been so afraid of something that you have fought tooth and toenail to not have to do anything to deal with it or step a foot in the direction of resolving it? I believe we all have something like that and I have come to realize that my fear is committing to relationships. Committing to caring, loving, being open and letting others care for me, I have been afraid of jumping in with both feet and giving something everything I’ve got.  I have not always been this way, I did this with dance as a youth and in other relationships when I was young, but not that way now.  I think its because I have been hurt, like we all have in close relationships, maybe its because I am afraid of failing, or getting in way above my head. Maybe it’s because I am afraid of losing myself and giving away my personal power, like I did in my marriage for 10 years.  So the thing I’m talking about is real for me right now, I have a choice of whether to jump in after 9 months of separation and try this marriage thing again to a changed man or go run the other direction and see what else is out there for me.  To some, it would seem so simple, cut and dry….I am not some people, I am me and those who know me know that most things are not simple and clear cut in my life.  The question that it has really come down to for me to day is this…”Do you really believe in the Lord’s power to heal and change hearts?  Do you really believe in the power of the Atonement?…you say you do and here is an opportunity to really show your children and those around you that you do, yet you are struggling, why is that?”

Why am i struggling?  I think the question is…Do I really believe?  This is what I have come to: I believe that we have challenges in our lives to test and solidify our belief in God and his power and his words…..and I believe this is a test for me.  A test to really prove and strengthen my resolve of what I truly believe.  I believe in the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I believe that when we really come to Him humbled and ready to give him our hearts and really ready to change, we are blessed with the strength to do so, through the Atonement. I do believe the more we come to Jesus, the stronger and purer we become.  I do believe we all have the capacity to become new in Jesus Christ. I have in many different ways, so why couldn’t my husband….and who am I to judge him or to cause a stumbling block for him in his humble journey and progression towards his godly self.  Doesn’t the Lord simply require a broken heart and a contrite spirit, a willingness to take upon us His name and keep coming to him so we can be changed through his love from the inside out?  I prayed for 9 months for this to happen for my husband….doesn’t God live and doesn’t he hear and answer prayers? Yes, yes He does, He did and I am a witness to that.

I feel that we need to be very careful with each other, we need to allow our loved ones to change and believe that when they make the effort to do so and invite their Savior to help them, they can do it.  We need to speak life in Jesus to each other.  We need to not only lift each other up, but we need to cheer each other on and not create stumbling blocks by holding others to their old ways.  Anyone and everyone can change when they come to Jesus and let the blood of His Atonement wash them clean.  When they let the all encompassing Love of the Savior touch them to the very core. When they are willing to give up all their sins to know the one and only true Son of God. How can one not be changed when touched to the very core with the all powerful and encompassing love of the Savior of the World? It can happen and does and I have been a witness of this in my own life and now as well as my husband’s……miracles happen to those who believe and I believe in miracles.
