“There’s danger in putting up security for a stranger’s debt; it’s safer not to guarantee another person’s debt.” –Proverbs 11:15

Super Mom Realization

Don’t read this over dinner…it’s kinda gross.   So, the morning was a bit different than usual. I was a bit late coming home from the gym so Leah took the older ones to school and left me with the 3 little ones. It was pleasant, I had 20 minutes until Erin and Bet-z woke up so I sat down to breakfast with Spencer. I gave him a bit of doughnut so he could bite of bits of it. . . BUT he promptly stuffed the whole thing in his mouth. One hurdle jumped.   Entertaining? Yes, but the “different” isn’t over.   Then Erin came out of her room. My first need is to attach the upper brain to the lower brain, the lizard brain so I looked at her and said a big and cheerful “good morning” and held my breath. A moment later the...

Encouraging Scripture for Masterminds and Coaching

Just gathered these scriptures together today as I consider the gift of the masterminds I participate in: “and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”–Hebrews 10:24-25   “Iron sharpens iron,So one man sharpens another.”–Proverbs 27:17   “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who...

Why do we work?

This talk really described the way I think but I didn’t know it until I listened. I love being told something about myself and my thinking to have it completely resonate in me: Did this surprise and resonate with you? Tell me about it in the comments.

How Do You Pray and Promote Your Business

16“O Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. 17Incline Your ear, O Lord, and hear; open Your eyes, O Lord, and see; and listen to all the words of Sennacherib, who sent them to reproach the living God. 18Truly, O Lord, the kings of Assyria have devastated all the countries and their lands, 19and have cast their gods into the fire, for they were not gods but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone. So they have destroyed them. 20Now, O Lord our God, deliver us from his hand that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You alone, Lord, are God.” –Isaiah 37:16-20 I forget to pray like this: praise, praise, praise,...

Accountability Fear

It seems we’re afraid of change. We spend the first 5-21 years of our life craving change and then BAM!! we become adults and all of a sudden, we stop welcoming the uncertainty and uncomfortable feeling that comes along with change. This morning I was meeting with a leader at the More Life Center–a center at our church that is designed to help people change their lives. We are planning an expansion of our facility and our programming to facilitate change. We have a program called the More Life Plan where an individual will meet with a Life Champion on a regular business to take a realistic look of their current life, an inventory of their dreams and begin to connect the two. And the cost? ZERO! Nada! Nothing! I think we would find more participants if...
