~Thought Control~

What you think about yourself matters. Why? Because your thoughts affect your emotions which in turn causes you to act according to how you feel.
For example, if someone thinks that they are not worthy then their emotion will reflect low self-esteem. As a result, his or her performance will always mirror less than their best. Subconsciously, this person will behave in a way that will give them results that confirm what they think about themselves.

Dare to Dream......Again

 South Carolina’s Motto: While I breathe, I hope

As long as you have life in your body, you have hope and as long as you have hope, there is potential for the manifestation of your dreams.


One of my previous dreams came to me around the age of 26. I was working at an electric company part-time. My dream was to retire before 30 so that I can be a stay-at-home mom. [Before sharing the rest of my testimony, I would like to caution you about whom you share your dreams with] However, I did not take this advice and I told my co-workers and of course they laughed and behaved in many discouraging ways. In addition to unbelieving co-workers there were many things that took place to discourage me but I held onto my dream.

Although my dream didn’t come to past right away-I held three other jobs after that job at the electric company- my dream did come true. Before the age of 30, I retired. I am currently a stay-at-home mom with five children!I give God all the glory for my dream coming to past because I could not have done it without Him.

No matter what your situation looks like, I encourage you to dream again and (or) hold onto your dreams. There is evidence all around you that someone didn’t give up on their dreams no matter what obstacles came their way. Obstacles will come but use those obstacles as opportunities to push forward and pursue your dream even more.

What is your dream????

Who is Jaycee Lee Dugard?

Jaycee Dugard, mostly known as a woman who was once kidnapped as a little girl and held captive for many grueling years. While not making light of any part of what Jaycee endured, it is her current mindset and the place that she is in now that captured me the most.

According to her interview with Diane Sawyer, Jaycee explained how she has overcome the evil that was done to her. She not only refused to allow the man that stole her childhood to take anymore of her life by refusing to be angry towards him but she made the decision to live and not die.

A Beautiful Flower

I love this blog because as a wife and mother of five, I can take a moment to refuel and reconnect while encouraging others to do the same. But no matter what “hat” I’m wearing, I’M A WOMAN! YOU ARE A WOMAN! We are part of God’s plan in which seedtime and harvest time never ceases! What a beautiful tool (you and I) that is used to carry out this awesome plan!!!!

How? As women our temples are used for planting and harvesting life, we nurture, we’re survivors and although delicate we’re strong enough to carry many “loads”. (The list goes on)…….

Throughout our lives, we women experience unwelcomed, undeserved and undeserved situations. However, deep down within us lies the ability to overcome. There is a seed planted within us that is only watered by love, inspiration, hope and most importantly the knowledge of who YOU are. That is why I am asking that you to create a list that describes who you are; a list that defined by you. No matter how many times you’ve failed in life, on your list you should write “winner”. So get your list together and if you're bold, post your list by clicking on comment at the the bottom of this post for a chance to win.

There will be two women who will win gifts in honor of women all over the world! Just click "comment" at the bottom of the post and reveal who YOU are!

~Video of the Week~

Over the years, I would hear people say, “believe in you”. And I tried to believe in me but that didn’t work for me. It seemed to have worked for others, just not me. There was something else I needed, something more than just “me”. I needed a higher purpose because I could not see past my faults and imperfections. I longed to know why I was put on this earth; why I was born.

Shortly after (meaning years later), a revelation penetrated my mind beyond my natural ability to reason. Jeremiah 29:11 states: “For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. WOW!!!!! And now everyday, that purpose-like a puzzle- comes together.

This revelation helped me to believe again, it gave me hope. And I say to ALL OF YOU, know that no matter what you’ve been through or what anyone has negatively spoken over your life, YOU have a PURPOSE and a DESTINY!
