1 tbsp garlic powder

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 cup Mexican cheese blend, Shredded

Cut off the tops of peppers; discard seeds and membranes, chop peppers in half length wise.

Cook the whole green peppers, uncovered in boiling water for about 5 minutes; invert to drain well.

*in a separate pot put water bring to boil add rice cook until rice is soft – unless using precooked rice like I do.

In a skillet cook ground beef, onion till meat is browned and onions are tender.

Add tomatoes, paste, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire, and rice.

Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat/rice mixture. Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet lined with foil.

His Grace Is Sufficient

As I laid in bed this morning listening to these little voices build and imagine and play in the hallway together, just to be near where I am ❤️ I was overcome with total gratitude for this amazing gift of motherhood and stewardship of these tiny hearts, hands and feet They absorb every breath I breathe, every thought I think and every word I speak.

They long to be near us always, in the quiet moments and in the crazy ones.

They watch us, watch ourselves in the mirror and learn how to think and talk about their own bodies.

They watch us show kindness to strangers and learn to be kind, always and to everyone.

They watch us love our husbands, their daddy and hero, and watch him love us, and learn what a healthy and strong marriage should look like and what they can expect from a man.

They watch us praise the Lord and sing to Him, read of Him and act as He would approve, and they learn to love Him.

They listen as We lift others up, speak acceptance and love into their lives, and they learn to pour their hearts into others, to be empathetic.

They watch and listen as we contain, or try our hardest to contain 😉, our temper, our anxiety, our depression, and learn to be strong and steadfast and a fighter-despite their weaknesses.

They watch us fall to our knees and depend on Him for our strength, and learn to be arrows, to turn to Him in times of need.

They watch us press on, work hard and talk about passion and purpose and dreams and things that seem impossible without faith, and they learn to have faith, to dream BIG, and that they can accomplish anything they want with God and mommy in their corner ❤️

We are more than just a mom, We are warriors, an example, a steward. And they are more than our beautiful children, they are daughters and sisters and someday mothers in Christ, Sons, Brothers and someday Fathers in Christ, they are arrows in the Lords army, they are the future.
So I will keep sharing my weaknesses and my fight, so they can see where I draw my strength ❤ And I urge you to share yours too, continue to lead by example and we need to remember as mommas, that even when we think they aren’t watching and maybe think we aren’t leading, they are, we are, always.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.- 2 Corinthians 12:9

Happy Mothers Day week to all my other arrow raisers, arrow sharpeners and arrow buffers 😉 whether you’re a mom of your own arrows or a significant role model for the arrows in your life, you are raising the future ❤️ Thank you for all you do and for all the beautiful “mothers” in my girls life, I could not raise these warriors without you!

PAUSE AND REFLECT

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause, and reflect.” -Mark Twain
 
WHENEVER I find MYSELF on the side of the MAJORITY, it IS time to PAUSE. AND REFLECT.
 
This quote struck a cord in me this morning that I have been trying to put into words for a while. I am living my life trying to pull away from the majority, trying to break out of the norm, I want to swim against the current and find what is there for those who are willing to break away and work for it!
I am done with the 9-5 and the paycheck to paycheck life, I am done. AND I am already accomplishing it. I am already done sitting at a desk and building someone else’s dream. I am already experiencing the freedom. I am separating my income from my time and I am going to thrive in it.
 
This quote speaks true not just to me, my entrepreneurial dreams and my race for my families freedom.
This quote also applies to YOU, to our country in it’s state of struggle to find a balance, Black Lives Matter vs All Lives Matter, Trump vs. Clinton, saying vs. DOING. We have become a country of “go with the flow-ers” and have adapted to selective ignorance and have chosen to check out and just side with the ease of the Majority.
BUT what if we checked in, checked out what is going on and showed up to the fight? What if we pause right now, and reflect and then FOLLOW OUR OWN OPINIONS based on the reality that we are living in and NOT based on the news outlets and the majority of people we are spending our time with.
What could we accomplish? What could we change? Our world is led by the majority, and I for one, am working hard to stand up and stand out and design my own life, build my own dream and form my own opinions. Majority or not, whatever you choose, make sure you are staying true to who you are and what you believe and taking time to figure out what that actually is.
Be Unique, Be Independent, Be Unapologetically You!

This World Needs Your Gifts

There are moments in our lives that define who we are, what we are doing, where we should be headed, and what we need to do with our lives.

These moments can come in the simplest, most unexpected times and usually take us completely by surprise.

 This is one of those moments for me.

 When I first ventured into the Coaching world a few years ago I never would have thought that I could be sitting here LITERALLY CHANGING LIVES. Just by being me. Just by reaching out, leaving fear at the gates and sprinting towards what I want out of life.  What do you want out of life? What are you doing to get it?  What are you allowing fear to steal from you?

Don’t give fear that control.  Don’t hold back from changing lives, including your own, another day!  Watch this message, this piece of my heart, and then tell me what you want out of life!

 

Now go take the next step, reach outside your comfort zone and sprint for your dreams!  And if you want someone to help you figure out what that looks like, how to do it, or where to start  Message Me …Don’t waste any more of your precious time, this world needs your gifts!

Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

Do you ever have one of those mornings when you can’t even wait for the pot to finish brewing before you need to get your delicious dark roast in your cup?!?

NOW LET ME ASK YOU…

Do you ever look at other people and think:

“How do they do it all?”

“How do they find the time?”

“Aren’t they exhausted?”

“No way could I do that!”

“I don’t have time

Let me just say … I call BULLSHIT.

I am sorry but I do… “Bullshit mama”

We all have busy lives, all moms have kids with different schedules, all dads have kids with different needs, all marriages need love and relationship, all grandparents are asked to help with different things, all jobs require work, all friends require time and all relationships require emotional and physical commitment!

WE. ALL. HAVE. 24 HOURS. EVERY. DAY.

So are you sitting on Instagram, twitter, Facebook or even this article and thinking, “How does she have the time to write this?”

You are not alone! Sometimes I wonder the same thing.

But let me tell you, WE ALL STRUGGLE.

Life is rough some days, and we all have our own trials, none more important than another, none more difficult than another, just different walks of life with different problems, stresses and time demanding crap.

I woke up this morning at 5:45am, not by choice, I hate mornings and love sleep.  My kids however seem to feel the opposite.  I decided to get my work out in – I DECIDED, being the key words.  The old me would have laid down on the couch, turned on a cartoon and possibly even fallen back to sleep.  Then later in the day I would have made more excuses about being tired and not working out. Then I would have sat on my social media and thought all those self excusing thoughts we just talked about!

Not TODAY.  Today I worked out. Then I brewed a much needed cup of coffee and found myself impatient and unable to wait for the pot to finish brewing…I mean, how ridiculous is that!?!  I couldn’t wait for the pot to finish brewing, really?  Talk about instant gratification 🙂

THE POINT IS:

Everyone has those days, everyone has a reason not to work out, everyone has a reason not to eat right and everyone has a reason not to take care of themselves.  Those reasons are strong and you can’t let them hold you back from your best self! Don’t think that because I post cute work out pics and yummy food that my life is easy or that I have more time than you.

Making time for yourself is much harder than making excuses.

I MAKE the time I have and I PRIORITIZE my health and my personal development above all else.  You can too.

I go to bed after midnight every night.

I have kids that sleep in my bed.

I have kids that wake me up at the buttcrack of dawn.

I have a husband that works nights and sleeps days.

I have a family and lots of friends that I spend time with.

I have a business that I run from home.

I have 3 dogs and a cat and a mortgage and bills and debt and all the other adulting crap you have.

BUT…I have DECIDED that above all that, I WILL make time for myself and my health.  And some days that means I don’t even have time to let the pot of coffee finish brewing 🙂

Do you prioritize your life?  Do you schedule time for yourself?  For your faith? For your fitness and health?  For your sanity!?!

My advice to you today is open your calendar app or your planner and SCHEDULE just 10 MINUTES EVERY DAY for the next 7 days, JUST FOR YOU.  It may mean squeezing 10 minutes in, in your car between soccer practice and dance, it may mean staying up 10 minutes later, or getting up 10 minutes earlier.  But find the time to invest at least 10 minutes in yourself every day.  Even if it means you won’t have those extra minutes to wait for the coffee to brew…you will have extra confidence, energy and passion for life…I think it’s a fair trade!

Just make the time and commitment to yourself, the same way you make time commitments to EVERY ONE ELSE!  You deserve it!
