How I Organized My Homeschool Curriculum

d42337b9ed8cabb3c4bebcd5912fa994

Erica is our oldest daughter and she has her hands around her daughter Destine’ who is my grand-daughter. Up top next to Erica is our 11 year old daughter Faith, next to Faith is me, Coach Angie, I have my hands on my husband shoulders, Overere. My husband is holding our daughter Victoria who is 5, but will be 6 in a month, and he is also holding our son Wisdom who is now 2 1/2 years old. Our daughter Blessing, who has her hands on daddy shoulders is 4 years old and will be 5 years old this year. Wow how time flies.

This is how my family looked when I started homeschooling Faith the second time around. This picture was taken over 2 1/2 two years ago.

I remember when I first started homeschooling Faith. She was in the kindergarten. I thought I had to do things like a traditional classroom setting. I put so much pressure on myself, trying to be the perfect homeschool mom. I tried to follow the curriculum to the T and it wore me out because I was always questioning was I during everything right.

I end up putting Faith back in school because I had a lot on my plate, When I was homeschooling Faith I had just given birth to Victoria and six months later was pregnant with Blessing, I was working at that time as well, so I closed my business, came home to raise my babies. Faith went to school in the 1st-3rd grade and then I was led to homeschool her again. While I homeschooled Faith, my 2 little girls went to an awesome childhood learning center for the first year I homeschooled her. I got pregnant again and had a son, so I was homeschooling Faith again with a newborn son and the girls were in school. After getting a feel for homeschooling again and during a lot of research and watching tons of youtube videos, I began to fall in love with homeschooling and was led to homeschool all of my children.

I wanted to be up on the latest curriculum and buy all the educational books, that I could find. I love books so that just drove me into a shopping frenzy. I hit up all the book stores like Barnes and Nobles, Sam’s, Walmart, Books of Million, Amazon, Ebay and the 1 dollar stores. I discovered that all the monies I was paying out to buy books I could find similar if not the same books at my local thrift stores like, Goodwill, Garage Sales, Craigslist and used book sales.

I would tell myself, these books cost less than the cost of tuition that I was paying out every month when I had them in school and over time I had accumulated tons of books that would take us years to read.

Yes I was a homeschooling novice, when I homeschooled my daughter in the kindergarten, I dedicated the basement room to my daughter classroom and decorated the walls like her traditional classroom setting. I have learned since then that for me having to much of anything if it is not being used it is just plain hoader-ism. So I have adopted a new homeschool philosophy. I not only adopted it in my classroom but I adopted this principle in every area of my life. Keep it Simple!

Keeping it simple is what I was looking for all alone, after trying countless of curriculum, what I found out is, there is not a one size fits all curriculum and every one of your child will learn differently and at their own pace. So do what works best for your children.

Another thing I discovered is, if you are homeschooling multiple children at one time like I am, it is best for your sanity to keep it simple for you and for them.

So I have narrowed it down since then, gave away some books and sold tons of unused educational tools and kept my favorites books that I think would benefit my family in the future and I bought curriculum for each child that covered what they need to know for their age and grade level and created a reference, reading and resource library in my home that can enhance and stir up their love and curiosity for learning.

This is what I ended up with down below and I am much more peaceful for during so. I feel so in control of my day, and I am not overwhelm by to much stuff, although I still feel like I could pair it down some more, I am pleased with the results!efb04e967b350bbab5cef3a0e213d92c

The first bookshelf which is the tall slim white bookshelf comes from Ikea, it houses my 2 year old son and my 4 year old daughter toddler flash cards, games, blocks, learning and reading books. It also houses a very small section of reading books and important educational binders for my business.

The second bookshelf, which is the middle cherrywood bookshelf, houses curriculum for my 3 daughters who are ages 11, 5, and 4. Each girl have her own shelf. This year I am using Abeka Homeschool Curriculum for my 4 and 5 year old girls. For my 11 year old daughter, I started off using a custom curriculum that I put together but end up switching to Ace Christian Homeschool Curriculum. I absolutely love it for her. It lets you go at your own pace, she can go as fast as she wants or she can take her time. The bookshelf also houses a caddy and basket for holding pencils/ink pens, color pencils, crayons, markers, stapler, glue, erasers, scissors and paper clips.

I got this bookshelf as soon as I decided to homeschool all of my children. It was waiting on me to pick it up. It was left on the side walk by a neighbor who just moved in the neighborhood. It had a tag on it that said free! It was in perfect condition and it is just what I needed. I was so grateful to my neighbor, who helped me get it onto the back of my truck and I was also grateful to God who always gives provision for the vision.

What I love about this bookshelf is that, it have 4 shelves for my four children that I homeschool. My 2 year old is not during real schooling yet but when it is time, I can add him at the bottom shelf. I also love that it has doors on it that close so I can hide all of their learning tools from my 2 year old therefore making it out of sight, out of mind for his beautiful eyes. The bookshelf is currently in my 2 year old room because it is close to the dinning room where my girls sit at the table to do their lessons and the bookshelf matches well with my son’s furniture in his room.

The last bookshelf comes from Ikea as well, and this bookshelf I deemed as our home library. It houses all of the educational resources, art supplies, reading and learning books. It also houses some additional flash cards and puzzles. Everything is categorized by subjects like math, reading, history, black history, science, social studies, health, manners, etc. I love the glass doors on this bookshelf because I can see where everything is, it is also a nice piece of furniture in my dinning room and the glass make the room feel open.

I don’t get caught up in buying a lot of books anymore, because I use our local library, but I have created a system for not becoming a curriculum junkie and this my system.

After we have read a book on our bookshelf, we place it in a bin for sale or donate. We can only replenish the book shelf with what we put in the bin. So if we put 7 books in the bin to donate, we can buy seven more new books to put in our library.

I use up all of the curriculum that I purchase for each one of my girls until it is gone and then, and only then, can I purchase a new curriculum for them. But before I purchase curriculum, I have to throughly research it to make sure it is a good fit for me and it is a good fit for them. So I would not be wasting money on curriculum that does not work for us.

On the weekends or when they are bored, I put together a fun pack for them and this is where I use the extra learning workbooks I have on my book shelf. When it is gone, it is gone, there is really no need to buy any extra workbooks because they already have curriculum that is teaching them what they need to know for their age and grade level.

My goal is to eliminate waste, use what we already have, manage and edit what comes in and what goes out.

She Still Got It! It Has Always Been There!

She is still in there, that same woman who use to laugh until she cried, shopped until she dropped and use to have a lot of fun during the things that brought her joy.

love-1194312_1920

Like, dancing and singing and visiting the local boutiques. Designing and decorating, and going to the coffee house and having a cup of coffee or tea. Spending all day at the bookstores and checking out the latest must reads, magazines and journals. Hanging out with her friends and catching up on the latest, whats going on in everyone’s life. Finding new recipes and trying them out and having potlucks so everyone can try each other dishes and just enjoying life! She is still there.

She just got buried, under all the responsibilities she had on her plate. She just got buried, with cares of her life. She just got buried, under the negative chatter that fed her thoughts with lies, telling her that she had lost it, her beauty, her charm, her charisma and the romance, connection, communication and the attention in her marriage.

She just got buried, under her superwoman exterior that she puts on everyday. She just got buried, under hormonal imbalance. She just got buried, under her emotional eating to numb the pain of her dreams laying dormant inside her, she just got buried, under going to the same unfulfilling job that she goes to everyday. She just got buried, under the same old routine that does not have spontaneity in it. She just got buried, under giving to everybody else and not giving back to herself.

pensive-female-580611_1920.jpg

She just got buried, with the grief of a loved one passing, she just got buried, under living with a sickness or disease in her body. She just got buried, under going through a divorce. She just got buried, under living with loneliness, envy, bitterness, unforgiveness and rejection.

She just got buried, under being a wife, mom, a daughter, a teacher, a caretaker, a boss, a sister, a friend, a leader and an influencer. She just got buried.

BUT SHE IS STILL IN THERE! 

She is still vibrant, and alive. She still have that twinkle in her step and a sparkle in her eyes. She is still just as attractive, sexy, alluring and confident as she was when she was in her 20s’ and 30s’. She still have that same laugh on the inside of her, that when she laughed so hard, her belly tighten and tears rolled down her face.

Give her a reason to have joy again. Give her permission to live again. Take your mind back from anyone and anything that is making you feel like you can’t breathe. Make yourself first priority! Invest in you again. Love on you again! Stop those sabotaging thoughts that you take on everyday and give them back to the devil! No more having self-pity and feeling sorry for yourself.

Girl, you have got to get up and live again. You stopped caring about what makes you truly happy! Pick back up those things that once brought you joy! Take care of yourself.

Start with a simply spa treatment, in your own bath tub. Buy you a big luxury bar of moisturizing body soap, and click this link to get a spa treatment formula.

Schedule your life and include you as top priority, right under spending time with God. Write out a list of all the things you love doing and include those things in your schedule. I hear you saying, I don’t have enough time to do that. That is why you are creating  a schedule for yourself, because you get to choose what you want to do and how you want your day to go.

Yes, schedule your responsibilities in your schedule as well, but if something comes up that conflicts with your me time, say no to it. In fact, I want you to cut the phone off when you are doing something for yourself. You are in an important meeting and will not be able to answer the phone. Let your family know that you have decided to start taking care of yourself properly and you would not be available to answer the phone until you are done with your appointment. They would love you more for taking care of yourself, because they will have a new happier healthy woman in their life.

In your time spent with God, pour your heart out to him, If you do not journal, now is a good time to start journaling because you are going to have different emotions that are going to be surfacing and you are going to need to talk to God about these different emotions and you are going to have to be honest with yourself.

writing-923882_1920.jpg

In prayer with God and writing in your journal is a good place to pour your heart out to him. You are getting clear about what is causing you discontentment. Admit it to God and yourself. Admit everything to him. Do not hold back. Sometimes we as women feel guilty that we are feeling a certain way about a situation and we never deal with what is causing us to feel this way because we think it is wrong to be having such strong emotions but God already knows how you feel, so do not try to hide it from him, and do not try to hide the emotions from yourself.

Another thing I would like for you to do is, after you have explored what is causing you stress, unhappiness, lost of joy, not feeling alive in your life and discontentment, I want you to answer these questions, what do I need to do to feel better about this situation? What do I really want? How do I really want to feel? When the answers come to you, work towards implementing the answers you receive right away!

I want you to start back reading books on the areas in your life that you want to improve in, for example, if you want to start back looking and dressing fashionable, go on Pinterest.com and look at pictures of fashion that ladies your age are wearing. You can go to your local book store and buy fashion magazines or go to the library and check out fashion book and magazines. You can also go on Youtube.com and type in the search button the topic your are interested in.

asian-1839798_1920.jpg

You can do this with any area of your life you want to improve in, I would advise you first go to the Bible and see what Gods word says about the subject and then look at other sources that is Biblically sound. You can do this to improve your communication, sex life, attractiveness and connection with your husband. You can read books about marriage, how to forgive, your appearance, how to put yourself first so you can be alive to take care of others around you, healthy eating and natural things you can do to cure certain diseases, pray and fasting, working out ect.

The goal here is for you to get your sparkle back and for you to truly feel alive in your life. I wrote a book that I know will truly motivate you and encourage you to find your sparkle and shine again! You will truly be encouraged to find your joy and truly live again! It is called “25 Attitudes You Must Have for a Breakthrough” it is only 14.97 and you can have access to it the moment you purchase it! It is a digital download. You can start right away feeling back in control of your life. That is less than 15.00 to change your life forever.

Who Is Influencing Your Children?

This post is to mothers who are teaching and educating their children at home. Mom even if your child goes to a private or public school you can still benefit from this article. I am not anti-school, my kids went to awesome Christian Schools! And as soon as my son is potty trained, I am sending him to one of the best learning centers in Saint Louis, Mo. Transformation Christian School.

pexels-photo-94990

I am in a position in my life where I am able to teach my children at home. I realize this is a privilege most moms do not get to experience but wish they could. I also know, not all moms desire to teach their children at home and that is ok, do whatever works best for your family.

I want you to know that I highly respect teachers, I take my hat off to teachers, I am still trying to figure out how they are able to manage all those beautiful personalities, attitudes and the workload that comes with teaching and managing their own classroom.. I have 4 children at home and though it is rewarding to see your children blossom right before your eyes, it has a reality side to it as well. I really think teachers should get paid a salary equivalent to the salary of a doctor. I just want to take the time to thank all the teachers for your acts of service to our children. I which there was away that we as parents can make it more easier for you to teach our childern.

When I decided to teach my children at home, I had questions in my thoughts like every mother has when she is about to embark on a journey called the unknown. I had questions, doubts and fears but inside of my heart I believe this is what I was suppose to be doing. Yes I knew it would be a big sacrifice and a huge responsibility because I would be responsible for them getting everything they needed to succeed. But I knew I was not alone, and if God was leading me in this direction, then he would provide me with everything I needed to get the job done.

With any responsibility the first question we asks ourselves is, are we qualified to handle the task that is set before us? Are we willing to handle the task that is set before us? Will we be successful in handling the task that is set before us and last, am I suppose to handle this task that is set before me or is this something I just took on myself, a new experiment I want to try or God is this you really leading me to take on this task?

You and I are getting ready to explore what we really agreed to take on. Our reasons for teaching our children at home may be different, but we share the same journey. Moms just because you are sending  your children to learn in a classroom setting, doesn’t mean you get to escape your responsibility of teaching your children at home.

pexels-photo-5.jpeg

Can we just say all parents are teachers? Some has professional degrees and the rest of us was born with the natural ability to teach our children. God has given us an innate ability to lead and guide our children. Who is better able to love, nourish, teach and care for our children more than we are? Who has the instinctual and intuitive ability to know exactly what our children needs more than we do?

I am aware that not all moms are walking in this awareness and are labeled as bad mothers, but today I want to focus on the moms who are aware of their influence as a mother. Regardless of how you became a mother this article is for you.

There will be days when you don’t feel like you have walked in your full potential as a mom, on those days give yourself lots of grace. Do what ever you have to do to restore your relationship with your children. Our children are so precious and they desire fellowship with us. It is our job as parents, to teach our children about the ways of God and to bring them into true fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ. I have listed some scriptures letting us know that teaching starts with the parents.

Isaiah 28:9-10 ESV “To whom will he teach knowledge, and to whom will he explain the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, those taken from the breast? For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.

Deuteronomy 6:6-9 “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. 
“You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Genesis 18:19 ESV For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him.”

There are so many voices that are in the world today, who voice will you teach your children to listen to. I will tell you who voices they should be listening to. God’s and Your voice. You have an obligation to teach your children to listen to the right voice. If you do not teach your children someone or something will be teaching them. The book of proverbs tells a son to listen to their father’s and mother’s instructions.

Proverbs 1-8:9 Hear, my son, your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching;  Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head and ornaments about your neck.

If we are going to teach our kids the ways of the Lord, then we must become a student of God’s word, so that we will have the knowledge to teach our children the ways of righteousness, holiness and truth.

numbers-time-watch-white.jpg

I think we are not aware of just how much time we are allowing others and things to teach our children. Sometimes we are just to overwhelm and tired to do it ourselves. So lets do the math of how much time we really have to teach our children the ways of the Lord. Lets explore how much time we really have every week to teach our children. There are 168 hours in a week.

*We rely on our churches to teach our children the ways of the Lord 2 days a week for about 2 hours. 4 hours a week

*We use our schools systems to teach them and educate them about 7 hours a day, 5 days a week. 35 hours

*Our children have to go to sleep. If they go to bed by 8pm and wake up by 7am, that is 11 hours. 77 hours a week.

*We are left with 52 hours a week teaching our children about the ways of the Lord. Now that is not including doing homework which can take up most of the evening depending on how many kids you have. Lets allot 1 hour for homework per day, for 6 days. 6 hours of homework time. We are down to 46 hours a week.

*If your children have after school activities like sports or lessons we will allot 4 hours a week for extra curricular activities. Leaving us with 42 hours a week to teach our children.

*I forgot to add daily cleaning and chores, like cooking, cleaning and making sure our family have fresh clothes, bath time, and all the other things that comes with running a household and extra commitments outside of the home. I will give 2 hours a day, 14 hours a week to that. Leaving us with 28 hours a week. That is only a 1 day and 4 hours a week, we have to really teach our children.

Moms who have to work outside the home and still have to come home and take care of her responsibilities at home, grace and grace and more grace to you. I have walked in your same shoes, I know how overwhelming it could be at times. With that kind of work load and schedule we are to tired to teach anybody anything. When we get home we just want to relax and fill ourselves up so we can constantly give to everybody else. I know everyone can’t afford a Christian education but thank God for the families who can afford it, at least our children are hearing about the love of God and his teaching while they are being educated.

wood-houses-school-old

This is not to make moms feel guilty but to shed light on who is actually raising our children. Public education are teaching our kids things that were never taught to us as kids when we were in school. There are things being taught in some of our children schools that are in direct opposition of what the word of God teaches.

So If you have decided to teach and educate your children at home, do not allow the pressure of everyone saying your kids are missing out on the social aspect of their lives. Homeschool groups are on the rise in almost every state where homeschooling is allowed. Your children have their church community if you are part of a body of believers. Your community and the state that you live in probably host homeschool events, just look it up on the internet.

But family is where real community starts. When have we gotten to the point where the family is not enough for us. Our neighborhood community activities is not enough for us. The events around our city is not enough for us. You can meet and fellowship with others around you in your own community.

Mom, you are well qualified to teach your children at home if you can, and if this is what you desire to do. God gave you everything you need to educate you children and led your children in the way of righteousness. Your child is an individual, they are unique and each child learns differently. You as a mom knows that. Sometimes others want to label your children because they are not keeping up with the learning style that is set for them by a decided on curriculum, but do not allow anyone to speak negatively about your children.

You speak the word of the Lord over your godly heritage. Some of our greatest leader that have lead this country were homeschooled. Most of our greatest olympic champions had to be homeschooled to develop their greatness. They have programs available to help you to teach your children at home and all you have to do is oversee their learning. I want moms to be encouraged that you have made the right decision in teaching your children at home.

4 Ways to Creating a Beautiful Life!

9478919558_a605adeb93_h

I am inspired to write about “4 Ways To Creating a Beautiful Life” because I hear from so many women who feel like they can not create a beautiful life for themselves.

A life where they are truly happy and fulfilled. A life where they can wake up everyday and actually look forward to their daily task, responsibilities and assignments. A life where they are enjoying living in the space, with the influence and with the people that has been assigned to them.

Creating a beautiful life does not mean that everything in your world has to be perfect. Creating a beautiful life does not mean you have to be rich, so you can buy your way to a beautiful life. Creating a beautiful life is created from the inside out.

You have the ability and the power to create a beautiful life, but you are going to need to make some really tough decisions, get free of people pleasing and change some mindsets to create the beautiful life that you see for yourself.

Before I tell you how to create this beautiful life, I must tell you that a beautiful life first begins with knowing who created you. It begins with having a relationship with your Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. God changes your heart, reveals purpose, desires and longings that are truly in your heart. God also exposes what and where we are placing our identity in. He reveals true agendas and false expectation that is put on you by yourself, and that is put on you by others.

We as women, take on everybody’s yokes and burdens. We set aside what we are truly feeling in our heart. We are living everybody’s desires, purpose and happiness except our own. We care way to much about what others think of us, we seek opinions of others when God has already revealed to us what we should be doing. Women are leaving this earth unfulfilled, unhappy and just taking what has been dealt to them. Your life do not have to remain this way. You can receive a real BREAKTHROUGH IN CREATING A BEAUTIFUL LIFE for yourself.

God tells us in Matthew 28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

I know that we all want to be pleasing to others around us. We all desire to make our life count for something. But women, are feeling guilty, inadequate, unfulfilled, unhappy, condemned and this false sense of loyalty to others agendas, that it is making it impossible to create a beautiful life.

156 copy

So what are the “4 Ways to Creating this Beautiful Life” that I am talking about? You first have to create it in your thoughts, and then you are going to write your thoughts on paper. After you have written your thoughts on paper,  you must decree and declare it in the atmosphere. After you have decreed and declared in the atmosphere, you must visualize your beautiful life.

THOUGHTS

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. To create a beautiful life, you have to stop thinking negative about your life! This scripture tells us we must take our minds and think on things that are pure, lovely, good, excellent and praise worthy. Sounds like all of those words are positive to me.

WRITE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PAPER

Any time God wanted to establish something, he always told people to write it down on tablet, stone or paper. Listen to what God told Habakkuk in Habakkuk 2:2-3. Then the LORD answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run.”For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.…writing the vision of your beautiful  life helps you to want to put it into action, and in time, your beautiful life will unfold.

 DECREE AND DECLARE IT 

Remember I told you the first steps to creating a beautiful life is turning your heart to God, when you do, God said one of the benefits is this scripture. Job 22:28 “You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways. What does it means to decree. A decree means an official order issued by a legal authority. To declare means to say something in a solemn and empathic manner. God is saying that He has given you the power and the authority to order your days, months and your years. The way you order it, is what will be established for you.

Do you want to know what you have been allowing and decreeing in your life? Just look around you. You created the life you are now living, rather it is beautiful or not. You created it. You created the people that is part of your life. You created the environment that you are living in. The job that you work at, you created it. But I have good news for you, if you do not like some parts of your life, you can make it beautiful! All you have to do is do what I am telling you to do to create a beautiful life.

VISUALIZE YOUR NEW LIFE

Some believer thinks it is unholy or unethical to use visualization. Well, let me tell you  a little secret. God is the creator and inventor of visualization. How do you think this whole Universe came to be. Wasn’t it God who created the whole world in seven days. When God created the Universe there were  3 things that he did to create it. He saw what he wanted, He spoke what he wanted and He created what He wanted. And every time God was done with what he created, He would call it Good! Guess what? God has given us the power to do the same thing in creating a beautiful life for ourselves.

Proverb 29:18 reads, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he. If you do not visualize your life being better, how is it going to get better?

We can complain about everything in our lives and the more we complain, the more things remain the same and eventually perish like the Bible says. We must see like God sees. We must call those things in our lives good, just like God calls them Good. We must think grand about our life in whatever state we find ourselves in. When we do, we would begin the see the beauty that has always been in our life.

You have to be GRATEFUL in your life. You have to thank God for everything. I try and practice writing down at least 10 things that I am grateful for everyday. During this exercise keeps me in a trusting, peaceful and joyous state. What I realize is, God wants me to have a beautiful life as much as I want it for myself, and He provides me with every opportunity to create this life.

What are the some of the beautiful attitudes, attributes, mindsets and things you want to see in that beautiful life? Give yourself permission to live your beautiful life.

I want you to write down exactly how you want to feel in your beautiful life and what you want your beautiful life to look like. Be realistic in your expectation in creating this beautiful life. What do I mean when I say this. If you are already married, do not imagine yourself being married to a different man. Visualize yourself falling back in love with the husband that you are currently married to. Visualize your husband dating you again and feeling like teenagers all over again.

If you desire to live in a new house, write that down, but while you are waiting for your new house to manifest, create a beautiful life in the home you are currently living in. See yourself cleaning, organizing and removing unwanted items. Visualize yourself painting the walls in a new color and buying fresh flowers to create a beautiful atmosphere in your home.

If you are a mom, visualize yourself being confident and happy in raising your children and influencing their life in a beautiful way. Fall in love with the daily tasks that goes into motherhood like setting schedules, serving your family by making sure they have clean clothes, finding fun activities that the whole family can enjoy and creating meals for your family.

Mom and wives, visualize yourself taking care of yourself by treating yourself to a pampering session. Visualize yourself taking care of your body by exercising and eating healthy. Visualize having fun with your husband. Visualize wonderful communication, passionate loving making, laughter and friendship.

Practice saying no to things that is stealing time away from you creating this beautiful life. Anything that is feeling like a burden and a sense of false responsibility will never bring you joy. Make a list of all the ways you people please just to feel accepted or wanting people to think you are a good person or a good Christian. You are good whether you do things for people are not, because God said you are good and that settles it.

NOW GO AHEAD AND START CREATING YOUR BEAUTIFUL LIFE!

I would love to hear from you. Just leave a comment or tell me some of the ways you want to create a beautiful life for yourself!

Coach Angie!
