The pic on the left was Tuesday morning...
.
The pic on the right was Saturday morning...
.
I had no idea the life changing events that would happen during the time in between these pics...
.
Gut-punching news Tuesday around lunch...after a morning that was pretty stressful at work...
.
Couldn't fight back the tears when I came home that night...
.
Managed to get up, push play, and head to work the next day...
.
And the next...
.
Feeling pretty numb about things but pulling myself together each day as to act if nothing was wrong...
.
Then if I thought my world was shaken Tuesday...
.
On Friday I experienced a massive earthquake that literally shook me and everyone around me to the core...
.
The old me would've buckled under these circumstances...
.
But because God has been preparing me for this by putting the right people and opportunities in my life to help make me strong enough to handle the situations...
.
I've managed to push through each day...
.
Feeling a little stronger each day after than I did the day before...
.
And while I still don't always handle things flawlessly...
.
I am learning to deal with them in much healthier ways...
.
And because I can now see the collateral beauty in things...
.
I will continue to push on...
.
Helping as many others as I can along the way...
.
So here's proof that if you show up daily...
.
And put forth the effort...
.
It won't necessarily be easy...but it'll be worth it! πŸ’ž
.
Hence the last pic (taken today)...
.
Where I'm looking as though life is all rainbows 🌈 and unicorns πŸ¦„ and I've been kicking a** and taking names all week and ready to do it all again!!!!πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ€£...
.
When really...it was only by the grace of God...that I even made it through this week...which has truly been one of my toughest thus far!!! ❀️❀️❀️
.
NOW GO CHECK MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR MORE INSIGHT FROM ME AS TO HOW I MADE IT THROUGH! .

Find someone who makes you smile and dance...

Someone who challenges you to be your best self...
.
Someone who loves you unconditionally...

Then spend every single day trying to live up to the person he makes you want to be. ☺️❀️

Yeah...
.
When clean hair...
.
A flannel shirt and vest...
.
Jeans and a pair of xtratufs...
.
When all that makes you feel dressed up...
.
You're living in the place you were meant to. ☺️
.
But it's a tough state to thrive in...
.
Lots of darkness...
.
Big wildlife and treacherous weather and terrain are part of every day life...
.
And conquering mountains is the only way to survive...
.
Yep...
.
It's tough out there...
.
But thankfully...
.
I found a way of life that makes me tough enough to handle it. .
And for that...
.
I'll forever be grateful! ❀️

On some days...you just shine bright enough you don't need a filter...πŸ’πŸ»πŸ’«πŸ˜‰
.
And since we are in control of how brightly we wanna shine...
.
Well then I say...
.
Take each and every day to shine so brightly that those around you need their sunglasses 😎...whether the sun is shining or not! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜

When you change the way you look at things...the things you look at change. ❀️
.
I use to look in the mirror at my body...picking apart each and every imperfection there is...😬
.
I've since learned to look differently at myself...πŸ˜‰
.
And so I pull my high-wasted workout pants above the mom-pooch...πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
.
Blow myself a kiss in the mirror...😘
.
And go crush a workout and continue winning my day! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
.
Because I'm rocking it compared to where I used to be...πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
.
And I know I ain't going backwards ever again!...πŸ™…πŸ»
.
Only forward!...πŸ˜‰πŸ’πŸ»β€οΈ

I wasn't a skinny bride and my wedding was on a beach instead of in a church...
.
A lot of things in my life haven't gone as I had planned out in my mind...πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
.
And I would struggle with that for a long time...
.
Not anymore tho folks! .
It took me a while to find the Super Woman in me...
.
But with God's love and direction...
.
And a way of life that allows me to be part of a tribe of amazing people that work hard to bring out the best in you...
.
I now view those "not as planned" events...
.
As blessings in disguise...
.
And live my life as grateful as possible...
.
Trying to bring out the best I can in those around me...
.
If they're up for the challenge! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŠπŸ»β€οΈ

Pic on the left...25 years old...6 months postpartum after having that cute little baby girl sitting on her lap.
.
Teaching high school math...
Trying to be the best Mom she could to this new human and her older sister...
Trying to be an awesome wife...
Eating poorly...
Tired...😴 Uncomfortable in her own skin (as I topped the scale at 200+ lbs before having that baby 😳)...
.
Pic on the right...38 years old...the baby in the pic is 14 and her older sis is 21 and has since made me a Grandma! πŸ’πŸ»
.
In between I quit teaching...
Earned my degree as an RN...
Moved from Indiana to Alaska! (3,000+ miles away from everyone and everything I knew)...
And with the help of my awesome hubby...have helped create an amazing life for our family! ❀️
.
The key to my success was a simple "Yes" to an old friend who asked me to do something for myself and join her challenge group.
.
Little did I know...
It would be the difference in me being truly happy...
It would be the reason I'm on my way to being my absolute best self!
It would be the reason I don't ever quit on myself (because when we quit on ourselves...we're also quitting on those around us πŸ˜”)...
It's provided the support and accountability for me while traveling on my life journey...
.
And while I took it a step further and decided to become a coach simply for the discount on those products I had grown to love...
I'm now a coach to pay it forward!
To reach out to those who might need this same kind of support and accountability...
Is that person you?
If you're at all interested in making changes and giving this a try...
Join my team tonight for a glimpse into what we do...all on your own time...from wherever you can access your FB account!

You'll be so glad you did! ❀️

Because every now and then, it really is nice to put on a little makeup, curl the hair, and flaunt it like you got it! πŸ’πŸ»πŸ˜˜

Omg! 
Another "transformation" pic. πŸ™„πŸ˜’
It's ok that some of you think this when you read my posts...
I'm not trying to please you anyway! πŸ˜‰
And so the reason I share in spite of you eye-rollers...
Is bc I hope it inspires even just 1 person who isn't feeling so great about their self...
to decide...
hey...πŸ€”
if she can do it...
so can I!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
I am so far from perfect! 
Like so far. 
But I'm becoming better day by day. 
And it's by choice.
And through the pure strength the good Lord above gives me...bc we all know it's too hard to do alone! 
So I used to choose the cherry delight...likely more than 1 serving...while cringing at the thought of being photographed...
But now I choose to photograph myself with a chocolate shake that was the first step in the right direction for me and my success thus far! πŸ’πŸ»β€οΈ
If you need to make a change...
Start here. 
With me. 
We'll do this together! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

It appears I've been doing slightly better every September for the past few years. 😌
.
There isn't a ton different in these 3 pics...been wearing a braid and a headband for awhile now πŸ˜‰...and I'm always in scrubs or workout clothes and messy hair under that headband. 😬
.
But my face is getting thinner, the bags under my eyes a little smaller, my skin slightly better...AND...most importantly...the light in my eyes keeps getting brighter. β˜ΊοΈπŸ’«
.
No. I'm not perfect. πŸ™…πŸ»
.
In fact I'm far from it! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
.
But I am working on continually getting better. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
.
Better for me. πŸ’πŸ»
.
Better for my husband. πŸ‘·πŸΌ
.
Better for my kids and grandson. ❀️
.
Better for my friends.πŸ’•
.
Better for my coworkers. ❣️
.
Better for my patients. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš•οΈ
.
Better for anyone and everyone I come into contact with. πŸ’ž
.
I can be my own worst enemy...but I never let me win when I'm acting that way...and I'm trying to let that happen a lot less. πŸ˜‰
.
So if you're looking for the way to be your best...
.
If you're looking for what's gonna give you your best life...
.
We should chat! .
I'm slowly but surely figuring it out!
.
It won't be easy! .
It'll take hard work day in and day out.
.
But it will be worth it! . 
And you will succeed! . 
You just have to first decide you want to! .
And when you're ready...I'll be here to help! ❀️
Let's finish 2018 strong! πŸ’ͺ🏼
Let's do it together! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

So I read something this morning that I think I need to share...
.
I think this should be everyone's goal...starting today! πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈ
.
🚨Let's stop throwing blame around! 🚨
.
What would happen if we stopped blaming ANYONE for ANYTHING? πŸ€”
.
We would experience miracles of tolerance and grace - rich in spiritual rewards, reflected in a life of real fulfillment. πŸ’ž
.
Wow! 😳
.
That hits hard and deep.❣️
.
And I can't speak for anyone else...but I will NO LONGER participate in the blame game! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
.
I CHOOSE to experience the tolerance and grace instead. πŸ™πŸΌ

I CHOOSE love and happiness! ☺️❀️

So here's another picture of me holding a shaker cup. πŸ’πŸ»
Yes, it has a dose of my chocolate superfoods in it...that I drink daily! βœ…
Yes, I usually drink it from a cup that matches my outfit. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ #ocd
BUUUT...do you understand WHY I drink it every day? πŸ€”
Yes, it's chocolate and it tastes amazing! πŸ˜‹
But...most importantly...it is packed with superfoods, antioxidants, pre/pro-biotics, phytonutrients, etc. that build your immunity, aid in digestion, stabilize your blood sugars, lowers your cholesterol, and helps with weightloss. 
It's been the difference in me HARDLY ever getting sick...and when I do...it doesn't get me so down that I can't beat it in a day or 2...or at the very least power thru so that it appears I never missed a beat! πŸ’πŸ»
To me...it's priceless! 
To others, it's "too expensive" πŸ™„ or just something they don't want to invest any $ in. 
My health, my happiness...they're worth the the $4 a day I spend on 1 meal of my day! πŸ’΅
And the fact that I look better at 38 than I did at 28...and am so much healthier...well that's freaking priceless!!! πŸ€—
There's a new fall flavor coming out Monday (limited time only!)!!!
You interested in trying it yet or not? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‰πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈ

I've been working really hard lately at becoming the best version of myself...largely in part because this guy and our daughters (and now grandson and SIL) deserve it...but mostly because I AM WORTH IT!!! ❀️
We'll never be everything to everybody...it's just not humanly possible. 
But if we work hard to live our best lives...
We often find that not only are we everything to at least someone...we are likely enough to a lot of others as well. 😊
The girl in the top photo was so busy taking care of everyone else that she forgot to make herself a priority. πŸ˜”
The woman in the bottom pic takes care of herself first...and has become quite a success at caring even better for those around her! πŸ’ž
So me working on me isn't a waste of time or money, and it isn't selfish! πŸ™„πŸ˜³πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
It's a necessity to me living my best life! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
If you're not living your best life because you're not taking the care for yourself you need...let's chat asap!!! πŸ’πŸ»
Because you're worth it too!!! 😘
(And btw...I still stop and criticize myself sometimes along the way on my journey...I'm working on that 😬...but today I'm gonna stop and celebrate a success along the way too! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
Bc you see, 1 of my biggest problem areas this summer that I've been working on is my arms. πŸ’ͺ🏼
Well when comparing these 2 pics...I definitely have come a long way!!! So I will end this post feeling even more confident because the changes aren't just happening on the inside...they're also finally happening on the outside too! πŸ€—)
So don't wait to start seeing the changes you want to see in yourself, too! Let's get you started with a plan that works for you today! ☺️

Yesterday I shared that I've been struggling for the past couple of weeks.
I also shared that personal development helps me get through it.
Today was no exception.
For today's message was this:
"It's ok to fall apart for a little while.
You don't always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well. 
You shouldn't be concerned with what other people are thinking either - cry if you need to - it's healthy to shed your tears.
The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again. 
And a smile doesn't always mean a person is happy.
Sometimes it simply means they are strong enough to face their problems."
So yes I shed some tears over the last couple of weeks. 
But it's getting easier to hold them back...and easier to put on my happy face again. 😊
To those of you that aren't quite there...to those who need to cry...go ahead! 
And if you need a shoulder while doing it...I'm here! 
We will pick up the pieces together...and move on stronger than we were when we fell apart! πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ˜‰β€οΈ

I have been struggling with some current situations in my life over the past couple of weeks. 
Things that are out of my control for the most part, but for some reason have been controlling my mind, and not in a good way. 
Personal development is something that is required with my jobs (both as a nurse and a coach) for my own mental health and motivation. 
I'm so glad it is. 
Because today I got this gentle reminder:
Struggling with problems is a natural part of growing. 
Part of living and growing up is experiencing unexpected troubles in life. 
People lose jobs, get sick, and sometimes die unexpectedly. 
When you are younger, and things are going pretty well, this harsh reality can be hard to visualize. 
But as an adult, these realities can hit like a ton of bricks. 
The smartest, and oftentimes hardest, thing we can do in these kinds of situations, is to be tempered in our reactions. 
To want to scream obscenities, but to be wiser and more disciplined than that. 
To remember emotional rage only makes matters worse. 
And to remember that tragedies are rarely as bad as they seem, and even when they are, they give us the opportunity to grow. ❀️
I'm working at handling life's tragedies with more grace. 😬
But in the meantime, I'll focus on the positive...
Yes I've been struggling, but I've also been growing. πŸ’ž

I struggle daily with the pushing play part πŸ˜¬πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
But I do do some sort of exercise most days πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸ»
And yes I dream big πŸ’«
I work hard πŸ’ͺ🏼
I drink shakeo daily πŸ€—
(...and I'll just be honest...like seriously...I think you're kinda crazy if you don't drink it too πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ)
I'm starting to crush goals πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ€—
(Mainly bc I started setting them πŸ˜‰)
And yes...I try to inspire others ✨
(Because again, if I'm being honest, I kinda feel like we should all be doing these things daily anyway so we can be our best selves πŸ˜‰)
[Because then we have a better chance of being able to help others πŸ’•]
So here's the kicker βœ”οΈ
There's a company that pays me to do these things πŸ˜³πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
I get to work on being my best self πŸ’πŸ»
I get to share my journey with others in hopes to convince them that this is the real deal...BECAUSE IT IS πŸ™ŒπŸ»
For πŸ’― real βœ”οΈ
And I earn a little extra $ while doing it πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
Why wouldn't I have said yes to this?!!! πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
And better yet...why haven't you said yes and joined me?!!! πŸ˜‰β€οΈ
If you're even kinda interested...let's talk asap πŸ’πŸ»

The picture quality on the left isn't the greatest since it's a pic of a pic...but you get the point...πŸ˜‰
25 years old...mom to 8 yr old and 9 mo old daughters πŸ’ž
In Hawaii to marry the man God blessed me with 🌺
But embarrassed by what she looked like πŸ˜”
Fast forward to the pic on the right...
38 years old...mom to now 21 and 13 yr olds...AND a new grandma πŸ˜³πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™
Spent some time in Mexico for a family wedding...didn't hesitate once when putting on my bathing suit πŸ‘™πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
A transformation does more for the soul than you can ever see done on a body...and holy moly some of the physical transformations are crazy good πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»
By the woman on the right is not who she used to be πŸ€”
She's better πŸ˜‰
Because she realized that to be her best...she has to give her best...first and foremost to herself 😊❀️
So no I'm no Victoria's Secret swimsuit model πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Yes I have stretch marks and cellulite πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
But who cares πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
I'm healthy πŸ’ͺ🏼
I'm happy πŸ˜†
And my family gets to see me fighting the good fight...all for them πŸ’ž
When are you gonna join me πŸ€”
You'll be so glad you did 😊❀️

Sometimes you just have to bear down, look life straight in the eye...and let her know that you are a badass and no one can ever take that away from you! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ˜‰πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈ
God put you here on this earth to use Him and the strength he'll provide to conquer your fears and overcome anything life throws at you! πŸ’ž
So dig deep. 
Find your inner badass. 
And then find a tribe of people that will help unleash the mother load of that πŸ’©!!!
Currently...my tribe (which is made up of ALL kinds of different people) is kicking a** at building each other up while we create the best versions of ourselves. 
You can join if you want! 
In fact, if you do, I just bet you'll be glad you did. πŸ˜‰
And if you're not quite ready to commit just yet, that's ok!
I'll just leave you with some motivation in the form of these words from of one of my favorite people...
"You've got this!" πŸ‘ŠπŸ»β€οΈ
So relax. Take a deep breath. 
Enjoy life. 
One day at a time. 🌈

Transformation: a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance.
The outward transformation is easy to see in these pictures...the girl on the right is literally 1/2 the dress size she was in the picture on the left. 😳
What I hope you also see, is the transformation on the inside...as seen in the difference in her smiles. 😊
Yes the girl is 1/2 the size...but she's twice the woman she was! πŸ’ž
I've been struggling with some things that are out of my control over the last couple of weeks and again the past couple of days. Looking at these pics reminds me that I've come so far already! I've overcome so much to get where I am today and darn it... I'm not gonna let anyone, including myself, take that away from me or try to even lessen the meaning of it all. 
We are destined to be the best versions of ourselves...we just have to fight for and maintain those versions! 
Sure we'll fall off from time to time...but that doesn't mean you give up! It means you work harder to shut the negativity down and build up all the positive vibes you can! 
It means we work hard to take care of ourselves; mind, body, and soul. 
It means we fight to show others they can do the same.
It means we show up...even when we don't feel like it...because in the end we know we'll be better for it. 
I found the solution to living my best life...and I'm working on looking my absolute best as well! Not because I want to be the skinniest or prettiest, but because I want to be my healthiest so I can fully live the life I've been blessed with. 
If you're struggling and need a place to start...
If you need or want someone to help hold you accountable and support you through it all...
I'm your girl! 
Let's be friends so we can help make each other the best we can be!!! ❀️
It's truly an amazing feeling! πŸ€—

Let's face it...
The lives we live are a direct reflection of the choices we've made. πŸ€”
When you choose to work hard, focus on what really matters, and strive to be your best...you open yourself up to a whole new world of possibilities! πŸ€—
It doesn't mean you won't mess up or run into a road block a time or 2 on the way...but it DOES mean that you choose to buckle down, make the most of the situation, and move on from it being better than you were before. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
It means you don't settle for anything less than your best! πŸ’πŸ»
It means you work hard every day to be your best so you can help others be their best. πŸ’ž
It means you create the happiness you so rightfully deserve, so long as you put in the effort. πŸ˜‰
It means you are in control! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
And I'll just leave the most important tip I can give you here at the end...if you give control to God and live the life he wants you to live...everything else just seems to fall right into place! πŸ˜‰β€οΈ
So here's to facing life ready to make it better and better...every. Single. Day. 😘

As a mom/wife we are taught to put everyone first and that's ok but we need to know it's ok to put YOURSELF first too. 
Looking back when I decided to start this healthy journey it was to make sure I would be around to take care of my family. As the changes happened (slowly I might add) I realized how good I felt having ME time, which in turn makes me a happier mom/wife.
I have more energy, my mood is elevated, my heart is fuller to help others meet their goals. I may never be what the world says is skinny, but  that has never been my goal. My goal is to be a healthy version of myself that God intended me to be.
I guess what I'm trying to say is don't be hard on yourself, set your goals, its ok to ask for help, use the tools available to you,don't give up,dust yourself off and keep moving forward you will get there it just takes time.

So today I'm gonna throw it back to a time I was super self conscious. 😬
Not a good place to be. πŸ˜•
Not a good example to set for the little girl in that left picture. πŸ˜”
I was trying to be so much to so many that I forgot to be what I needed for me. ☹️
I was struggling with feeling good about myself and loving the skin I was in. πŸ˜•
I was struggling with finding a healthy balance between food, beer, and exercise. 😬
I had all the tools I needed...someone showed me back in 2012! 😳
But Shannon likes to be rebellious. 😏
She likes to think she can do things her way. πŸ’πŸ»
Lucky for her tho...she learns from her mistakes. πŸ˜‰
She's still learning...but as you can tell...she's figuring it out. πŸ€—
No shortcuts. 🚫
No unhealthy ways. 🚫
Just a simple understanding of the importance of eating right and staying active. 😊
(Plus I found a game changing superfoods shake that has changed me from the inside out. πŸ˜‰)
I am now ready to take it up a notch...and I get to be part of an exclusive test group that starts Monday. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
If I've gotten this far with giving less than my all...can you imagine where I'm gonna be after going all in?!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
Why don't you join me and see how far you can go too? πŸ€”
Let's chat if you're up for the challenge! 😘

No matter how chaotic the past has been, the future is a clean, fresh, wide open slate. 
You are not your past habits. 
You are not your past failures. 
You are not how others have at one time treated you. 
You are only who you think you are right now in this moment. 
You are only what you do right now in this moment. 
So my advice, make the most of this moment, and be your best! ☺️❀️
Right now! πŸ˜‰
You deserve it! 😘

Being healthy is a choice ❀️
And personally speaking, the healthier I am, the happier I am ☺️
And as you can tell... I'm continuing to become healthier every year...by choice πŸ™‚
I don't diet 😌
I don't take any pills or use any wraps or other fad ways to try and find an easy fix πŸ™‚
I simply drink a superfoods shake packed with tons of goodness my body NEEDS (that is also clinically proven to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugars...as well as aid in weight loss πŸ€—)
I drink water instead of soda pop now πŸ’¦
And I stay active πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ There's no secret to winning when it comes to your health and fitness πŸ€”
It simply boils down to what you're willing to do to become your best πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
I like to consider myself like a fine wine...getting better with time πŸ˜‰πŸ·
But the real secret to my success with becoming my best self...is the support I get from my tribe and the company that provides us with life changing products and opportunities πŸ’•
If you're struggling with your health and fitness, please come join me and my tribe on our journey πŸ™πŸΌ
You'll be so glad you did ☺️❀️

13 years as this guys wife ☺️
I'm a lucky gal ❀️
Here's to many more adventures with my love 😘
#ironworkerwife4life #lucky13 #happyanniversary #hikingcouple #lovingalaskalife
"You're looking skinny" the hubby said to me this morning ☺️
Thanks I thought in my head πŸ’­
But the old me broke through and said aloud..."not skinny enough" 😬
Then I had to remind myself☝🏼
It's not about being skinny πŸ‘™
But it is about being healthy and feeling good in my own skin πŸ€— Because that's led to a boatload of happiness for me πŸ˜†
In every aspect of my life ❀️
Which has been really good for those around me πŸ™‚
So yes I'm glad the physical changes that are starting to happen to my body can be seen by others as well as myself 😊
But I'm thrilled with the changes that can be seen in my soul and self love πŸŒ·πŸ’—
So maybe you can't understand why I do what I do...πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
But I can πŸ™ŒπŸ»
And that's all that matters πŸ˜‰
So I drank my Hulk juice and jogged another 2 miles to continue with my progress πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Now I'm going to spend the day with 2 of my favorite people πŸ’•
Happy Saturday πŸ˜†
Here's to doing whatever it takes to be our best selves πŸ‘ŠπŸ»β€οΈ

Found these gems at the antique store the other day...I might've mentioned to Lance that they'd make good birthday and Mother's Day gifts...which happens to be the same day this year ☺️
Came upstairs from sleeping in between shifts...expecting to see chocolates and flowers as any wife would πŸ˜‰
But found these waiting for me instead πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
Nice job babe...you did good...real good ❀️
I'm a lucky woman πŸ’ž

I read several devotional books every morning to start my day. It takes maybe 10 minutes. I'm a better person for those around me when I do. Today's message is quite inspiring. Blessed be His name! HE, who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. πŸ¦… And my favorite line of all today...The Lord heals both body and spirit, resulting in wholeness. ❀️ Thank God for his healing powers. πŸ™πŸΌ #dailydevotion #thegiftofjesus #womanoffaith #momof2girls #ironworkerwife4life

HE, who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. πŸ¦… And my favorite line of all today...The Lord heals both body and spirit, resulting in wholeness. ❀️ Thank God for his healing powers. πŸ™πŸΌ #dailydevotion  #thegiftofjesus  #womanoffaith  #momof2girls  #ironworkerwife4life 
Remember...when you feel you can't go on...give it to God and he will see you through. ❀️ #dailydevotion #womanoffaith #momof2girls #ironworkerwife4life #coach #nurse #teacher

So many of you have noticed that I kinda went away for a bit...sorry 😬 I took the time to slow down some things in my life and really stop and think about life in general and what it is all about. I took time to think about what my #purpose here on Earth is, and what I've been doing right and what I needed to work harder on. I took time to figure out what I wanted and needed in life to be #happy and content. πŸ€” Well I'm happy to say that just shy of my 36th birthday, I've finally figured it out!!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜†πŸ‘πŸ» (So now I'll probably go back to blowing my social media up to catch you all in!!! Lol πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ) But first, I must share the most important thing I learned in my brief time away πŸ˜‰... And here it is:::: I need a relationship with God in order to be #successful in anything I want or need to do while on this earth! Without putting Him first, I fall short. Period. Plain and simple. He is responsible for everything #good in my life so to continue to have good things I must give Him the #praise and #glory and ensure I'm living a life pleasing to Him. When I do this, everything works out! When I don't, my life is #chaos and I start to #panic and make poor choices. πŸ˜” But because he #loves us and #forgives us, we don't have to be afraid and we can go through life full of #hope and living a life in #faith knowing the best is yet to come!!! πŸ˜† We are not alone! His Presence is among us and it's shown by all the #miracles happening around us!! 😊❀️ #womanoffaith #livealifeuluv #dailydevotion

Today I can't stop #smiling πŸ˜† Yesterday after #playinginthesnow we went to see the #movie #MiraclesFromHeaven 😊 We pretty much all cried during it and me nearly the whole time 😭 At the end, though, I was reminded with a #renewed #faith that miracles are everywhere, #God is everywhere!!! However, it is only when we seek Him and look for the miracles in our lives that our eyes will be opened to truly see and view all the #beauty and #wonder that exists, even in what appear to be the darkest moments... ❀️ #believe #haveablessedweek #lookformiracles

As a nurse and former teacher, I know first hand how important it is to have good help and what a difference it makes in being successful at your job. I've had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing "assistants" and know 100% that they were a vital part of any success I've had!

Yesterday we went to the #orchestra for a field trip again. Each time I can't help but notice the deaf kids sitting in the front on the right side of the stage. I also can't help but tear up at the site of them dancing and celebrating to sounds the can't  hear. I was still thinking about it this morning when I heard the song "Good vibrations" on my way to work and couldn't help but smile realizing they must've been feeling the music they were unable to hear. Then my devotion for today hits on #listening again! So tonight, I'm #thankful for my ability to listen and hear...especially music. I will show my #gratitude by #singing aloud His praise and ensuring I only send out good vibrations to anyone listening.😊 I will use my words for #encouragement and #support, always speaking from the #heart ❀️ #dailydevotion #ourdailybread #womanoffaith #woundcarenurse #momof2girls #ironworkerwife4life #beachbodycoach #smile #behappy #bepositive
