sometimes i wished...

sometimes...sometimes i wished id had a nice family,grew up with the social norms as a healthy family would...but then,would i have a real need for God,if i had everything else?

im not saying that family keeps us from God,but,if weve had all the good stuff without a knowledge of where the good stuff really comes from,would He have been able to make that much of a difference in a life thats,well,already together,persay?

i still long for that family,thought that might be the…

freedom isnt that easy...

when it feels like life has been going right on by..while everyone else seems to be enjoying the ride...i am reminded that God is still here,and everything i learned to believe...never was the truth...

too many dreams and nightmares have passed,and im reminded that i grew up in a home whos patterns were not the truth...im beginning to understand...what they did to me,never had a thing to do with me...

from a childs mind,taking their impressions so literally,had no way of…

3 Things That Can Derail Your Success While Self-Employed

Recently, Claudia and I were talking about how our shortcomings are magnified when self-employed. Now that I’ve started my own business, I can no longer rely on the structure of a job to push me through the day. If I’m not handling something well, it will derail my whole day.

This is something that I have to be very vigilant about or it creeps up on me nearly everyday.…

I am enthusiastically happy to be a part of this online community.

Today I provide financially for my little three person family. My wife and little 9 month old girl are peacefully sleeping. I am checking in with an online substitute teaching job system. Yesterday I went back to high school. At this particular school the teachers were prepared with lesson plans--that I met, the teenagers full of promise. High school experiences have not seemed to have changed much since the 1980s, not at this school anyway.

'Christian'...doesnt seem to mean what it used to...

after having read a dear friends posting,i was moved...oftentimes we dont feel what others feel,we dont see what others see...how many people right under our nose feel quite alone 'humanly'?

it doesnt seem to matter anymore if we call ourselves 'Christian'. its how we are with each other that makes the difference,not who we say we are. but then,im beside myself because i have not known how to be with others that would be 'Christian', and yet,i do just fine with non-christians. i know…

The Power of Letting Go





I had a meeting today with a potential client today.  Actually, they were former clients, we had just never met.



The gig was for my social marketing business.  Their business?  Mexican restaurant.  A really good one, at that.



How come we never met before if they were previous clients, you…

093 Single Momm Radio - Real Moms. Real Lives. Real Community.

Sometimes God gets your attention in subtle, soft ways. Other times, He may allow (or cause) your entire foundation to quake.

For this mom, it was very much the latter. (Jump to the podcast.)

During the fall of 2005, the “perfect family” image she was trying to lead people to believe she had, crumbled from beneath her feet…

Residual Income for Visual Artists

I am very intrigued with the idea of residual income. I am working on designing step-by-step watercolor lessons in pamphlet form that I can print and sell to aspiring artists. There are a few artists doing this, but not a many. I think it has potential. Even better will be when I discover how I can sell them from my website, etsy or some other venue as a downloadable .pdf file. I won't have to handle anything and have no expense. I'm very excited about this idea.

How do I look? How do you "look"?

Saturday, upon arriving home from helping a friend tile a back splash, I pulled into a well cleared driveway and sidewalk free from snow and ice...compliments of my neighbor who did this in exchange for me fixing their furnace earlier in the day. As I pulled into my parking spot I noticed something dangling in the small tree I had…

Back Porch Dwellers

I had a neighbor stop by today just to see how I was doing and say, “Hi.” It meant the world to me! It was just a 15 minute conversation but it changed the course of my day. Of course, she didn’t have to do that. It took time and effort but she took action and we both benefited from this caring gesture. When you make someone else happy, it also warms your own heart.

We are such…

Job "Un" Fairs

I had to attend a job fair for my "job" a while back. I was sent there on a mission. I was surveying the set-up and taking mental notes. As I looked at the young and not so young folks there I realized something. Job fairs aren't fair. For the most part you are going into uncharted territory. I don't personally know of anyone who has gotten a job from attending a job fair.…

Abundant Life Through Natural Health: Learning to Walk the Talk

     Ever have one of those frustrating experiences when you wake up hours before your alarm is set to go off and absolutely cannot go back to sleep?  Well today, was one of those mornings for me.  Waking up 2-3 hours early is not quite as frustrating anymore since I have learned to relax myself enough to go back to sleep by practicing Biblical meditation.  Waking up 30 minutes to an hour early on the other hand, is more frustrating to me.  For one thing, I teach part time, practice…
