All in Gods timing!

Our next adventure…So when it comes to goal making I always hear “make sure it’s obtainable” so one of my goals this year has been to become a father of five 🙋🏼‍♂️ That’s right we have Baby #5 coming in July:-).


We are of course very excited about this. Gods timing is awesome lol!! But I am thankful that the Cupcake Princess wont be a lonely only child in a few years, as the big kids are her best buddies, and they are growing up soooooo fast:-/.
So far Jamie is feeling pretty good, once She got past the first few months of tiredness all the time, and figured out all-day-but-especially-at-night nausea was triggered by dairy, then life smoothed out quite nicely!! Which is one of the many reasons we are so excited for the new it works SHAKES. Dairy free.😉…So far things are going well, and my midwife has no concerns, even though She is well into the advanced maternal age bracket for mamas being just shy of 40:-0!! Kidding, we are not worried about that part, only about keeping up with a busy toddler and a newborn, and thankful that We still have my a lot of baby slings and carriers they are surely going to get a workout this summer!!! Doubly thankful to have a business Where she can work from wherever She is, and on her own time, no time cards or schedules will work for this busy mama!
So, just the typical craziness around here, with a new baby as our next adventure to kick off 2017:-).

Next stop Disney😊🙌🏼

What is your next adventure for the year, what new things will you be trying out or exploring?? Share here, i love to hear about what others are up to:-)

There is no magic pill!

Happy New Year!!!!

Wouldn’t life be grand id there was a real magic pill like in Alice in wonderland…. just take this and you become smaller.lol…

Like many of you I to have always been in a battle with weight like a bad roller coaster ride up and down. I have come to the conclusion over the years that my metabilism stinks lol and that when i eat like crap and don’t workout i magically gain weight…lol

This has been a constraint battle since i hit puberty all those years ago. While i am not at the weight and shape I was in 2 years ago I am not where I was at my worst…when I peaked in the early 2000 at over 310 i knew i had to do something. I picked up running and lost over 70 lbs and then i injured myself and lost the running ability. A few years later I found myself back up towards 280 ugh!! Then back down to 230’s now those days are behind me but I know i can do it again..

I did it with heathy eating and working out. There is no magic pill. Now Last year Jamie and I joined this amazing company IT Works Global #itworks. They have an amazing health supplements and skin care line. We all want to look better, get healthier and feel better about ourself right? Yes they have great products here are some just to name a few  #fatfighters #wow #greens #thermofit #wraps #cleanse #newyou…..and lets not forget #relief for us aging folks who need some joint relief….while they are amazing products and yes they do work, they are suplements  to help you on your journey to a healthier you noe magically transform you…..

So as I begin this year trying to reach my new goals in health and wellness I ask you how about you? Are you willing to make that investment in yourself? Do you think you are worth it?

Yes I have been up and down and tried some products last year with pssotive results, even sore and injured i am doing this just remember work out according to your skill and ability not according to everyone else …now i am excited to see where this company takes us this year! When combined with cleaner ( yes I said cleaner not clean i am not perfect you know) eating and working out. Started a 90 day challenge group this week and looking for 5 people to join me on this journey. For a little investment in You! You can see a healthier you in 90 days…….won’t you join me!

LETS DO THIS!!

Together

Life is full of ups and downs

Life is full of ups and downs

2016 good ridince or thank you?

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then from each black accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

This poem/ song was in a message i heard form the pulpit of our church ( great job Trey) this christmas eve. After hearing about the origin of the song and the suffering that came upon Henry Longfellow during this time in his life when he wrote it and how he lost hos wife in a tragic fire  and a year later recivein word that his son was shot in the civil war. While helping his recover He had come to learn admits great tragedy God still shines His love for us. Like the bells that still ring Gods glory and love ALWAYS is present.

This year was a year like most full of love,joy, new friendships old friendships, loss of loved ones, loss of friends i have seen families torn apart and others brought closer together. I have come to unsderstand that our lives are what we focus on.. was my 2016 the year of loss, injury, family struggle, watching great friendships sink into utter destruction….or do i see it as a year of teasting  and growth?

Do i choose to hear the bells on Christmas day?

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Through the tragity that unfolded upon us this year, do i choose to see the strength i have found in my wife, in my Lord?

through the loss of friendships do i choose to wallow in the loss in despaired, closing my heart off to the possibilities of future loss? Or do i choose to see the amazing friends my Lord has bestowed upon my life?

I have learned through this year that above all else God is good! God is in control, and His hands are those that let me experience all I do in my Life!

It’s always so easy to utter the words God is good, or i trust the Lord. but as they say , its when it hits the fan, when the rubber meets the asphalt. That’s when our words are put to the test. You cant sharpen iron without first applying the heat and fire and beating into shape……

So for this year 2016 I thank you Lord for all you have given me…..

I was able to see my Auntie before she when home to the Lord…

I was able to reconnect with friends through their grace of God and have those friendships grow stronger…

I was able to start a business with my beloved and meet so many great people through this journey.

I was able to grow in my walk with the Lord and see fruit from seeds long ago planted.

I was able to spend another year with my amazing and blessed family.

to  celebrate another plethora of anniversaries with my beloved and cross over into 21+ years together….

So yes as i did have my struggles this year as i am sure we all did. But what is your take away for the year? Joyful glee or gloom and sadness.

We must remember God is in contol

“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So as I thank you Lord for my family and for my life, i am excited to see what other joys you bring forth in 2017…

We thank Him in the good times and the bad….

God bless

love and blessings and may your 2017 be all you choose it to be..

A whole notha level…..When opportunity knocks will you answer?

imageFrom my Wife…

“Ok so here it is…..
I joined It Works because I really needed a little extra cash each month, nothing crazy, but a little padding for the grocery budget, so that occasionally I could splurge and buy shoes(on sale of course👍🏼) and Starbucks, all in the same month!! So nothing crazy, just a bit of extra 💲
I gained so much more than I ever anticipated!!! I have gained some amazing friends, and awesome team that I love encouraging and working with, and more freedom than I could have ever imagined possible, all from a $99 investment!!
Our future is now completely changed, and there are exciting new things on the horizon for our family, and coffee and shoe shopping is just the beginning😉!
What do you really need?? Would a small investment make a HUGE difference in your future?!
How much would make a difference in your life, would $200, $300, more??!! Those are possible, and together we can make it happen!!
Invest in your future, and let’s see what you will gain, together!!!
#momboss #wahm #sahm #blessedmama #blessedmom #momof4”

i know some of you are skeptical of this whole business but so was I. So when this opportunity was shown to us we said NO! Then again no, really what’s a wrap going to do?🤔
You may have heard ignorance is bliss🤗… Well your wrong. 😮
For one this wrap is amazing 🙌🏼and so are all there other supplements and health products this company has to offer. Don’t judge on something you don’t know about.  I did my research about this company and its founders, it’s ligit👍🏼. I am so proud of my wife Jamie and this company. We are It Works distributors 🙌🏼. My only regret is that we did not join sooner. How about you?
If you have questions don’t just assume,
asks me!

thier are so many of out these struggling right now to get our bills paid. I see some of these great distributors making hudge money… And I am like I could never do that. But yet I can, in this company you get put what you put in. Truth is would all love 10,000 a month but our lives would be drastically changed with just 300-500 a month I know ours was!
Could you use an extra 100,200,300???maybe 1000+ a month I know we did. I am so thankful to God for this’s opportunity and for this family I have found. We are united as one helping people to be healthier one at a time!!
Won’t you join me?

 

“Laugh it up fuzzball….”

  
 
  
  
First off, if you know me you know I am a Star Wars and scifi geek…so I was just looking for an excuse to use a quote from Star Wars ….lol

Our story begins in a galaxy not so far away….and ok well last fall….

Our friend we will call her “Lauren” 😉, started posting about IT Works and how great the products were. I told Jamie I don’t about these magic pills and wraps, it’s just a bunch of snake oil, what’s It Works anyway?  

We do shakes that have real nutrition….. We ended the year and I got my W2 from selling those shakes and wow, I pushed hard and look I made $900.00!! Wow I am on my way, to moving up the ladder. 

When we got together with “Lauren” and her husband, she was talking about how she made $900 in just two months…so I said “I know I laughed at you before but can you tell me more about this business?” So our adventure began, I convinced Jamie that even though I know money is tight, I researched the company and products, and they are Legit with a capital L…..so we scrounged the $99.00 and ordered our kit.

It was the best thing we have done in sooooo long, God has blessed this decision and this new adventure for our family. 

We have chosen in our life to be home with our children raising our kids, but with this decision, like all decisions, there are consequences, like a lack of funds 😕. We have done without on many things, it has broken my heart to always have to tell the kids “no” or the kids say”ohh dad can we, never mind that’s expensive”. 

Hey it’s the life we chose and we lived with it but it was getting so tough, it was getting to the point where I had to get a 2nd job:-/ Jamie was looking for something to do from home for a while even, while still working to homeschool the kids. Now because of It Works and this oppurtunity, we can do things with the kids that we could never have done before!

I can say “yes we can go out and have a treat, yes we can get that dumb little toy because it’s cute looking”….Last year we where so blessed by my mom to help us with a family vacation. We had a blast but I told the family we can’t do this again for a few years…..now this year we are going to the It Works confrence just outside Orlando Fla….so excited about this, I never thought we would be able to do this, but because of the blessing of this It Works job we can.  

The best part is the fact that we have been able to bless others through this, we are so excited to be doing this with the amazing family we have in this business, it truly is one team!

How about it, are you looking to make a change? We would love to work with you, to help you reach your health and wealth goals… Join us and let’s see what your It Works business will look like, what it will do for your family…

God bless

Jon

The game of Chess of champions. Marvel vs DC

Do you like chess?
I impress my children with my novice skill set. This past summer while reminiscing about an old chess set I had. I decided to start up a new custom collection chess set. After eight months in I am close to completing it. It’s a amazing looking chess set that would be great for any chess players or comic book fan. Don’t take my word for it. Here are some pics.
