Anyone else feel like they are racing through the summer holidays?! With only a couple of weeks left to go until the boys are back at school I’d like time to slow down please so we can do more ...... because in amongst the chaos of juggling work & school holidays & 2 energetic boys I know I’ll be looking back in years to come & wishing we’d crammed in some more 💕 #brutonboys#morefun#summerof2019#summerholidays
We ran out of data recently and it was such a gift! Yes, it meant that we had to park in random restaurant parking lots and take full advantage of their wifi to do those necessary tasks. What it also meant was that we were unplugged and carefree. I think I'll be turning off my data more often! #summerfun#datafree#unplugged#carefree#morefun#lessscrolling
Taking time to go slow and get lost...
Earlier this week I forced myself to shut my laptop and pick up my kindle. Reading just for the fun of it was something that I’d loved, but lost when I felt that striving, working and achieving was all there was. If it wasn’t a health or personal development book, it wasn’t getting my time. .
These days though, as I’m more conscious of not just my physical health, but my mental, emotional and spiritual well-being too and how they’re all interdependent, I’m increasingly conscious of nurturing a sense of fun and doing stuff just because I enjoy it. No ulterior motive. Just fun, pleasure and joy. .
So reading for pleasure it is. Dance classes it is. Twerkfit classes it is. Jumping in carnival 2019 (🙈) it is. Adult colouring books it is. Singing and dancing around the house like I did when I was 13 it is. .
Theses are two of my recent and highly recommended fiction reads by @dorothykoomson_author and @candicec_w. Both are page turners that had me visibly smh on the train and cussing characters to myself and anyone who’d listen. Thank you both for the journey 🙏🏾
I couldn’t agree more with Penny. I thought I was “too good” for this. Well, It was exactly what I needed and I’m glad I we have this as extra income! Having one income can be rough.
What Penny has to say: “It took me 5 years to earn a luxury car with Rodan + Fields. Now, if I had rolled my eyes, thought I was too good, came up with some other lame excuse I would not be driving a Benz and making the same I made working 40 hours a week in a corporate gig. However, I was ❤️OPEN❤️ to learning more.
I was immediately intrigued by:
❤️Brand recognition it’s like GOLD, you can’t buy that & companies work decades to get that
❤️Unlimited income potential
Now I’d never heard of R+F or even tried the products. But I knew THE PROACTIV Drs know what they are doing & I was going to leverage that!
It’s not to late for you! Let’s get you started! Start NOW so in 5 years your life has the chance to look different too. What in the world do you have to lose?! The only thing standing in your way is FEAR or FAILURE. Now ...let’s crush that 🙌🏼 “ #startTODAY#thatgirl#possibilities#morefun#leverage#bedifferent#luxurycar#Benz#seewhatwillhappenin5years#tryit#whatisyourwhy#kjhpassionforsuccess
GIVING IS A FORM OF WORSHIP
I was asked if worship was a job, a hobby, or a calling ?
In our case worship is a calling.
My wife & I met volunteering at a worship service nearly 6 years ago.
We have been worshipping together ever since.
Dani & I are so glad we answered Gods call to serve. Otherwise we might both still be searching for a spouse & purpose partner.
I wake up wanting to do my vocal warm up and look forward to learning songs, writing songs, or recording songs, performing, and sharing what Gods done/doing in our lives.
We NEVER think of worship as a way to earn money.
As a matter of fact the more generous we have been volunteering to serve through worship - the more financial, personal, and marital blessings we have experienced.
We’ve come across worshippers that treat it as a “gig” and they always seem to be struggling or not completely satisfied.
In the world I struck out as a musician trying to “get” as much as I could.
By faith, I have seen higher highs in music & life than I ever dreamed of by trying to “GIVE” as much as I can.
Give it a try. (No pun intended)....
This spiritual formula of “giving first” has taught us so many lessons and brought so many blessings.
We hope you have a blessed weekend. #givingisworship#giving#serving#worship#bradalden#called#equipped#ready#blessed#pastorsLoveThis#pastorappreciation#blonde#platinumblonde#morefun#samefun#MyWifesShoes#money
