I have thought about writing about this particular subject a few times. I have finally gained enough courage to share. In my opinion there is a great danger in overstaying your welcome. Often times we stay just because. Time is precious and we must make the most of it.

Take a moment and see if you identify in any of the areas below and then find true courage to get off that couch!

Thank You

Hey Friends,

During the Christmas Holidays we had two opportunities to prepare brunch for approximately 100 people each day. A group of volunteers and friends served on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. While we have volunteers and friends onsite at least 2-3 times each month, this was our first opportunity to serve on the actual holiday. It was both fun and rewarding.

All of this was made possible by the proceeds of the Baby Steps book sales.

I am so excited about the impact that Baby Steps The Book has made since June 2017. This is only the beginning and the best is yet to come.

Thank you so much for your support!

You Made It

No matter what happened this week, you have successfully navigated through it and made it to the weekend! I love the pictures in the frames above because they all are reminders to me and I hope to you as well.

When life gets crazy, remember to breathe. Just take a few minutes and steal away. Never underestimate the power of peace and quiet to calm your spirit and reset your mind.

The best truly is yet to come! As we draw closer to the end of another year, don’t close the book on 2017 yet. God can still absolutely show up and blow your mind. Just keep pushing towards your goals and purpose.

Finally, every day your Father in Heaven allows you to remain on the Earth, you can be confident that your purpose is not yet fulfilled, so you still have work to do! So, get busy! Everything is going to be alright. God will not put more on you than you can bear, and the trial you face today will be the testimony you need to change someone else’s life!

So go ahead and get some rest and recharge for the next week! Have a great and relaxing weekend.


Just Go

This is actually a public service announcement: go to the doctor. Get your check-ups regularly and use your insurance. Now, I know many of us don’t like to go to the doctor, but the illnesses that are attacking our bodies can be stopped if they are just caught in time.

If you have a family history of cancer or any other dreaded illness, or even just as you get older, it is crucial that you go to the doctor. Don’t wait and don’t procrastinate. When you do you are not only risking affecting your life but the lives of everyone connected to you.

I have been taught that even though we are people of faith, there is a “God” part and a “Us” part. God will always do His part, let’s be sure to do ours. Please share this message with the ones you love, you might just save a life!

Plan a Getaway

I am not sure if you have taken the time to take a vacation this year, but if you have not, I would like to encourage you to do so. Taking time to rest, relax and recharge is vital for your health, both mentally and physically.

If vacations are not a part of your current budget, I strongly encourage you to add them for next year. For now, start small. Stay at a hotel in another town, or plan a weekend at a local bed and breakfast. From there, you can begin to plan more elaborate trips.

If you are married it is essential for you and your spouse to spend quality time together, and then if you have kids consider doing a vacation as a couple and one as a family. In the beginning, these trips may not be weeklong adventures. The trip may have to happen over a weekend, the length of time is not nearly as important is taking the time to spend with each other.

We live in a world that is non-stop and demanding. We must be determined to stop ourselves and take time to get away with our loved ones. Trust me, you will be glad you did.
