Inspired By My Teenager

inspired

This week, I am spotlighting one of my daughters. Ryan is almost 15 and she wrote this real account of a situation that occurred last weekend. This post is peppered with so much humor, truth, and life lessons…I had to share it with all of you. Please be encouraged to share this with your family and especially with your children. I also challenge you to go out there and Take Action as a result of being inspired by her words! Because Together is Better, As pretty much everyone in Arizona knows, there was a monumental and destructive rainstorm quite recently, causing many people immobility for hours. Arizona is commonly known for all of the dirt we have here, and that's exactly what came rushing onto local streets everywhere due to the storm. Now, this rainstorm was unlike any petty … [Read more...]

Want or Need?

wants or needs

This past week before the kids went back to school, I did the "Annual Purge". We go through all their clothes, hand down the sizes, and go through all the bins. It is quite a production. With three girls still living at home, there are a lot of clothes and shoes to go through, hand down, and donate. We do this before we go school clothes shopping, so we know what they need and what they want. We have so much. Sometimes kids have a hard time deciphering between want and need. Many times adults have the same struggle. We buy things we think we need, but we really just want. It is amazing when we start to clean out drawers, closets, and shelves how much we have. I know several families who have so many things that they can't even park in their garage. Why do we think we need to keep … [Read more...]

Keep Everything in Perspective

Perspective

When I was in seventh grade, I received the greatest Christmas gift of all: My dad bought me and my three siblings each a new set of luggage. I loved my new three piece set from the moment I saw it…it was sturdy, red, and it was all mine! I loved it even more as I unzipped each section and pocket and discovered several fun gifts neatly wrapped and stuffed inside. Christmas kept giving, as I opened up the last pocket; inside were airline tickets to Mexico! We were taking a family vacation to Mazatlan, Mexico!!! Boy was I excited! After our fabulous time in Mexico, our Christmas break was coming to an end, and we returned home to snowy Colorado. When we were taking our luggage out of the trunk of our car, I noticed something quite disturbing: My brand new large carry-on piece had "Black … [Read more...]

Come From a Place of Love

come from love

This week, three different people came to me for advice. They all had unique circumstances, but they all had a common theme: They wanted to know how to repair a relationship. One person wasn't speaking to her daughter, one person had a business communication breakdown, and the other person had a conflict with a friend. These all carried with them a wide array of negative emotions. These emotions ranged anywhere from sadness to being straight up pissed off! I know you can relate because we all have been on this emotional spectrum when dealing with relationships. Do you currently have a relationship that needs to be repaired? Each one asked me how they should solve their conflict, and how to approach the other person. Each one wanted to solve the issue and not just leave it weighing on … [Read more...]
