The Campaign Begins

The Campaign Begins
You get what you focus on. You’ve heard that advice, right? 

It reminds us that, to begin living the life we really want, we have to start doing those things that will get us there. 
If you’ve been following my posts, you know I’m big into getting what you want in all 7 major life areas. It’s something I learned from Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl—The OolaGuys—who teach how to create balance in our unbalanced world.

Now, as a Certified Oola Life Coach, I help clients determine what’s not working for them in the areas of fitness, finance, family, field (career), faith, friends and fun – then correct those stressors and bring about the lifestyle, relationships and financial security they need to be happy, balanced and growing.

So what could the OolaLife look like for you? 

For the next few weeks, I’m challenging you to decide, then focus on getting this life you really want.

Let’s Get Started: Decide What You Want
Have you ever thought about the lifestyle, activities, wealth, longevity, family relationships and other parts of a fantastic life that YOU want?
If you haven’t, that’s the first place to start. Why? Because in order to get what you want, you have to KNOW what you want. If you’re going to focus your time and energy, it’s got to be awesome and a major life improvement for you. 
For instance, do you want to . . .
Fitness: Be date-night ready with tons of energy?
Finance: Eliminate all debt and have money to spare?
Family: Have a rockin’ good marriage + amazing kids, too? 
Field: Find a dream job or start a business you love?
Faith: Start an exciting new faith-based project?
Friends: Find new friends and mentors who believe in you?
Fun: Crush those bucket-list adventures you’ve dreamed of?  

Whatever inspires you, why not share it below? (But hey, don't reveal super-personal details!)
For myself, the hamster wheel of living paycheck to paycheck and a health wake up call inspired me!!
To help you achieve your own OolaLife, I’ve joined forces with Dave and Troy – The OolaGuys – to privately coach you and support you via a unique 10-week program designed to transform your life, your finances, your relationships and more. Message me and we can jump on a call about it.

Peace in the Chaos

Peace in the Chaos

Are you a mom?  Do you have one child or multiple children? Do you have children with Special Needs?  

I am a mom of three children.  My children were born of the heart.  I feel very blessed that God called me to care for these three children.

With the Joys of raising these children comes the valleys of tough times as well.  We have had our share of tears, shouts of frustration and heartaches.

During our JOURNEY, we learned about the Autism Spectrum.  We were introduced to Mental Illness.  We had to journey through Rare Genetic Disorders and Seizures.  Along with them come Behaviors and Meltdowns.   Our home is often Chaotic.

Chaotic with a child, I feel like I walk on eggshells with. Chaos of, will we have a meltdown Explosion today!??

In this Chaos, I find Peace with my Savior, Jesus Christ.  He is my ANCHOR in this Storm.

One of my favorite songs is Casting Crowns, “Praise You in This Storm!”  

(I do not own the rights to this song!)

One day after having to admit my son once again to the psychiatric hospital, I was driving home.  I was praying, crying out!  I was frustrated, wanted help for my son.  This song comes on the radio.  It really spoke to me.  My tears fell harder.

Praise God in the Storm!  He sees you!  He holds your tears!!  He is with YOU!!

This Journey, This Storm, This Life is not easy!  It definitely has its highs.  It also has the lows.  

Psalm 62:6-7 - "He only is my ROCK and my SALVATION; He is my DEFENSE; I shall not be moved. In God is my Salvation and my Glory; The ROCK of my Strength, AND my REFUGE, is in God!!"

Do you know Jesus?  Do you have a ROCK to lean on your storm?  If not, call out to Him.  If you need guidance through this, reach out to me.  

I’m not saying it will be all rainbows and butterflies, but …. 

I know I can’t manage this Journey without Him.
