Why End The Year In Gratitude

We’re all so busy during the holiday season that many don’t have the time to stop and reflect on the beauties and lessons of the past year. To close out the year 2011 I’ve decided to do a workshop on End of the Year Gratitude.

Why End The Year in Gratitude?

Regardless of how difficult your year may have been, here are 5 reasons to end your year in gratitude.

Because challenges are beautiful!

Many think, “Thank God, that year is over! I hope the next year is better!” The challenges of our year should be counted as part of  “the beauties”. They grow us! They make us better! But it’s only with a heart filled with “Thank You” that we can start to see that. Say, thank you!

Because you become open to greater possibilities!

Gratitude allows us to see life from a different perspective. This new perspective opens us up to new ideas and possibilities. When you sit around with a mindset that says, “my life/year/marriage/finances suck!” where will the inspiriation comes from to help you change your sucky life?

It won’t!  You become stuck in the sucky. Say thank you!

Because the little things count too!

It’s easy to feel for grateful for the big things like: the car, the house, the family, the job. But how often we forget about the simpler things: having clean fresh water at the tip of the faucet, a good night’s sleep or an immune system that’s fighting for your survival without your participation. These are things that we don’t think about until they are NOT working properly. If you have these things say thank you!

Because God said it!

Every philosophical thinker, major religion and even the Savior of mankind taught us to be thankful. Before Jesus raisea Lazarus from the dead he prayed, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.” (john 11:41)  Jesus THANKED GOD! And he did it before he received answer to his prayer! What a lesson for us all!

Because it’s the most powerful affirmation!

I am a big advocate of affirmations. I’ve even created a series of Affirmations for Christians. They are life & mind changing!  Having a  grateful heart is a powerful life changing affirmation as well! Let me demonstrate:

  • I am grateful for you.
  • I am thankful for the opportunity to live my dream.
  • I am grateful that I have the opportunity to raise my children from home.
  • I am thankful for the chance to teach other moms how to do the same.
  • I am thankful for a husband who goes to work everyday.
  • I am thankful for the technology that makes running a business from home possible.
  • I am grateful for all of you who come to my blog, Youtube channel and Facebook page to be inspired.
  • I am soooo thankful to have a connection with the God of the Universe!

If you are in town join us for the End of The Year Gratitude workshop. In the meantime, reflect on the last year pause and leave a comment, what are you grateful for?

You can celebrate this week’s accomplishment here on my blog and leave a free backlink to your site!

The reason: I don’t feel like coming up with new content to write, so I’ll let you do it for me!

No seriously, if you’ve listened to my BlogTalk Show, you know I’ve built it around mom entrepreneurs who’ve gone through a challenge but overcame it.  I love interviewing these women and hearing the Warrior’s Story, the Overcomer, the underdog who came back stronger than ever!  These stories are soul-stirring, faith building and awe inspiring!

So I want you to tell your story here. It doesn’t have to be anything huge.

Can’t think of one right now, bookmark this page and come back to it. There’s no expiration.

I only ask one thing in exchange: That you pass this on, Tweet, FB, Stumble, or whatever social media you like; USE IT.  This gives you and me, extra exposure and it tells others where to come for their free backlink!

I only have one rule: No ads, No spam. No selling. I will simply delete it and it will never see the light of day. Only real praise, celebration and bragging from real entrepreneurs will be approved.

So tell us about your week and then tweet it out to everyone else!

Share the love!

The Difference Between Destiny & Purpose

If you’ve been missing my Blogtalk Radio shows then you need to plug in your speakers and spend some time checking out the archives. This particular episode was AWESOME and INSPIRING because Tony Robinson explained the difference between Destiny  and Purpose.

Not only did she explain the difference between the two but she also took us on the journey of how she discovered her own purpose and how she’s fulfilling it.

Tony Robinson is founder of Well Watered Woman, a global ministry dedicated to encouraging, enriching and empowering women in their walks with God.


She’s also hosting a family cruise conference in 2012 and is considering me as one of the speakers! Wooo Hooo! She’s a beautiful God-fearing woman and I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of this interview! Click the link to listen in.

Wordless Wednesday-Perspective


Sorry here are a few words to explain this inspiring wordless wednesday’s picture about perspective!

This is a picture taken from directly above these camels in the desert at sunset. It is considered to be one of the best pictures of the year. When you look closely, you can see that the camels are the little white lines in the picture.
The black images you see are just the shadows!

Sometimes, our “problems” seem to be as big as the shadows…but they are not.
