My Miracle

africanchildren

I’ve had many miracles in my life and just recently an outpouring of them as our little family prepares to go to Kenya Africa to Mentor Families as part of a humanitarian project. First, I just want to testify of a truth, when you put God first and you are on His errand and it is His will, all things work together for your good. All things flow and when you replace fear with faith, Miracles happen!

So our family goes to Kenya on the 27th of May to serve the families of Kenya, to learn from them as well as teach them principles and skills that will allow them greater freedom in thinking and producing. I have the heart of a humanitarian, and have known since I was 18 that I wanted to travel the world and give service of this kind. Africa is the beginning of this for our family, because I’ve also known that we are a “missionary” family, we serve. My children, ages 9 and 10 have been working hard to earn funds and now it is coming down to the wire and we need to get plane tickets and passports, as well as pay a few fees for the travel, needless to say we need miracles.

It was this mindset that I went into the week last week, willing to sell the furniture we own as well as anything we did not really need. On Saturday, it was my 3rd weekend in a row that I did a yard sale from donated items of others.  It was slow that day and I just kept praying and believing. It was getting in the late afternoon and we had only had a few visitors and  a few donations. My sons friend came over and I began to just talk with the Dad, for some reason, I just began to share what we were doing and explaining to him the purpose of the yard sale and our mission to Africa.  He listened politely, said good bye and I continued on  my way,  starting to clean up from the yard sale and taking some items back to a donation center. When I returned, I found him looking at the remaining items, he had picked a pair of boots and a pizza card and asked if he could by them. He handed me a wad of cash and explained that he felt prompted to give his money that he was saving for a guitar. He is a music therapist and his guitar broke and he was saving for another, but felt prompted by God to give it to me.  I thanked him with tears in my eyes and we talked a bit about his work, then he left. I never looked at the amount of cash while we were talking, after he left, I began to count it…100, 200, 300. 300 Dollars!  I bowed my head and cried. Praised the Lord and then went on with my day with a spring in my step.  Well, it didn’t end there, later that evening, this same man came to pick up his daughter. He asked for me at the door and then proceeded to hand me another wad of cash. He said “God didn’t tell me to give you some of the guitar money, He asked me to give all of it,”  I was stunned, I didn’t even know what to say. After he left all I could do was give God thanks.

The next day was Sunday. I was late for my meetings, so I went to another. Spirit prompted me to stand up and share my miracle and testify of miracles and that God hears and answers prayers. I spoke so clearly and with power and when I sat down, I had the impression to ask that it touch peoples hearts and that they would want to assist. That was not my intention in sharing, it was purely to share the love and miracles of God, but I know that when we follow promptings, we are blessed. Sure enough, after the meeting, an elderly woman approached me with a note that read: “come by at 3:00, we will help you with your mission.”  I praised the Lord and greeted another woman, asking me if I knew if the Dad that donated to us was in need of a guitar, because she had one that she wasn’t using and wanted to see if he could use it! Oh Goodness, another miracle! Names were given and I went on my way feeling so humbled and excited.

When 3:00 came around I made my way to the woman’s house and was greeted warmly and handed a check for $500. In a day I had received over $1000 in donations!  My friends, God is so good and He desires to bless us with all that we stand in need of, He hears and answers every prayer, this I can testify. When we give we are blessed and the Lord takes care of us!  As you read this today and if you feel inspired, I invite you to assist us by donating today.  We are still in need of $3000 for flights so that we can travel to Kenya to do the work. Thank you for your love and support and for taking the time to let me share my story of miracles and faith in Christ. God bless you today as you go about in faith doing good for others.

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!

The Power of Being Selfless

I read a quote today by Wayne Dyer “Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s troubles, it takes away today’s peace.”

How much of our time and energy is spent and wasted on worrying? I’ve started to become very aware of a heavy dark feeling that has invaded me for some time.  Just recently I’ve realized it has simply been the energy of worrying .  I fret over details, people and events to which I have no control over.  My mind will continually play on and on with thoughts of doubt, fears and worries, unless I consciously stop and focus on the now.

Think about it….how much do we really have control over? And does worrying change or solve anything?  It absolutely does not!  It  is a complete waste of energy and time and it is a mind trap!  As I’ve become aware of this, I’ve been discovering ways to overcome and avoid the trap.  I know that there are many ways and many tools, and I would love to hear what you have discovered.  This is what I’ve learned so far:

1. Realize that the only person you have control over is you. Remember this and adjust your thought process and beliefs.

2. God is over all and when we invite Him, he will guide and direct the things we cannot see and that we do not have control over.  He will speak peace to our hearts and minds.   As we align our will with His will for us, and commit to be determined in serving Him, we can have confidence that he will help provide all that we need.

3. Reach higher! Strive to live in a way that our thoughts and energy are centered in serving and helping others, fulfilling our divine mission, and creating a better environment for ourselves and those around us.

When I have shifted my focus from me, me , me, to  asking “who can I help today? “,  great power and peace have entered and sustained me.  It is the power of selflessness and it’s so freeing! When I ask myself this question, it gets me out of my mind trap.  Then I start reaching into my heart and searching and I open up to God to guide me.  I begin to live from faith, love and peace instead of fear, worry and regret.  It is absolutely magical!

So…..Go create magic in your life!….. and leave the worries, fears and doubts at the Lord’s feet!
