10 Life Habits for a Great 2021

Read More

You’ve got to choose some non-negotiables in your daily life. It’s not what you do once in a while that forms your life and gets it going in the right direction, it’s what you do daily.

The great news is – If you don’t like your life, you can change it!

There’s a rule of 5 that John Maxwell talks about that I’ve worked to incorporate in my life. I don’t always do them, which is why I’m not fully where I want to be in life, but I’m closer than I was before I started out on this endeavor…

How To Get Ahead Financially

Read More

Finances are one of my favorite topics to talk about! If you’re my friend you probably already know that. I don’t come from money so everything I’ve learned and applied has been life changing. I’m not where I want to be (able to buy a house, working on retirement, and building assets) but I’m not where I was.. thinking $25 in my bank account was okay…

20 Steps to a Balanced Life success habits 2020

The laws of success have intrigued me for years and the more I’ve studied, the more repeating themes I’ve seen. We may not all achieve great wealth or prestige, but we can have some degree of personal success and balance in our lives that helps avoid craziness and catastrophes and starts moving us into our callings. We want to get to the point that our lives actually start positively affecting others in a greater way. I’ve listened to a lot of Zig Ziglar, Terri Savelle Foy, Clay Clark & Tony Robbins in my life and more recently added Jim Rohn – and they have helped shape my mind to get out of loser mentalities and believe and work for more! I keep the Bible as my main textbook though, as you can get to thinking that life is all about achieving your goals, getting more stuff, more money.. though all of those things can be really good – we must not neglect the main thing, which is a flourishing and full relationship with Jesus Christ, which will bring true joy into our lives, even while other things are unbalanced… Continue reading “20 Steps to a Balanced Life”

How to Love Reading the Bible

Read More

I started reading the Bible when I was young, but I would usually read it by inspiration only.. if you know what I mean. It wasn’t until I turned 22 that I started reading it through every year and developed the discipline of getting “fresh manna” every morning. I didn’t have a ton of spiritual discipline in my life growing up and I thought that if I hadn’t read the Bible first, I shouldn’t read any other self-help or business book I wanted to read either.. so for a while I didn’t get any reading done at all! Wow…

How Will You Be Remembered?

Read More
This morning I was thinking about the unconscious impact our lives make on others because one of my best friend’s impact on me. Abby recently moved to Hawaii, but so often when she was around she would make green tea with chia seeds (which I would have never thought of), make all kinds of soup concoctions that always tasted amazing (and somehow included Kale), and she always encourages you, prays with you and sometimes pranks you. She also has the strongest back massaging hands sure to kill any strong-willed headache and a heart for the homeless and a love for strangers that doesn’t quit..

How To Make A 2018 Goal Card

So I’ve been making New Years goals like the rest of humanity as long as I can remember.. You know, get married by 18, have 10 kids, learn Spanish, eat healthy, exercise 3-5x a week, read a chapter a day.. and I’ve gotten some of them done, but without having your goals in front of you everyday, it’s easy to forget to get married by 18.. and now I’m 25. 😉 But a new secret of the greats has been revealed to me recently that I’m now employing in my own life..

How I Met Jesus

Read More

I was a pretty bad person back in the day. You might not know by looking at me now, but up until 3 years old I didn’t know Jesus and I don’t want to think back to that dark time in my life…

Okay, so my first sins that I remember were lying about leaving the tricycle out (I got my mouth washed out with soap for that one) & lying about spilling the chocolate milk on the carpet to my aunt. I didn’t want to lose her favor – as if that would do it… 😉

4 Four Tips for blogging tipss for writing a blog bloggers 2017

1 – Write when you’re inspired.

It’s a discipline to write when you’re not inspired, which should be attained, but it’s so much more fun to write when you are! A good rule is to write when you’re inspired and edit when you’re not. Writing and blogging can feel irresponsible, and I suppose it can be depending on the content, but if you feel like you need to get helpful information out into the world, you gotta take the time to do it. Chances are you’ll waste time on Instagram and Facebook anyways, so use the time to write instead. 🙂

My Go-To Home Workout Routines

Read More

That’s my workout buddy & baby sister Haddie. She’s a little dream. Anyhow, I went from 117 to 103 lbs through good old-fashion diet and exercise. It took about 6 months. That sounds horribly long, but I didn’t know what I was doing at first. I thought my one mile runs and semi regular workouts were enough. I found out that diet is really key though – they say it’s about 80% of the results, but workout is essential for toning and especially for blasting off the weight that just likes to stay around. Once you get where you want, it’s a lot easier to maintain that weight and tone with a lot less effort. It isn’t fair, but it’s great! I put one of my first go-to workout pictures I found useful from Pinterest below.
