It’s Time to Come to Christ

Jude 1: 20-21

Desire Jesus

Trump wins the Presidency here in America, Ok now pause and take a breath. Many are confused, perplexed, and down right angry but I say do not be afraid. We are not a people without hope. We can still stand in the face of fear and use our voices to denounce any policy that is seemingly absurd and distasteful. We can still stand shoulder to shoulder and March and lift our voices and be heard, this is still a democracy and unlike many nations “We Can” make a difference.

Countless are afraid because they perpetually put their hopes in politicians, and this is erroneous. Remain hopeful and allow no one to usurp your God given hope and rights. Exhale and stand tall. Neither Hilliary or Trump are able to truly save, the Bible declares “Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save” (Psalm 146:3) Hope…

Thank you!

Linda G. Hill

I want to express my deepest gratitude to all who have bought and shared my novelette, All Good Stories. I’m truly grateful for this WordPress community, and I’m humbled by the outpouring of love and caring I’ve found here, from friends and strangers alike. Since I posted my plea for help, I’ve sold 79 copies and gone from #1,600,000 on the Kindle Paid Best Seller List to #14,376, which is awesome. More importantly than that, I’ve doubled the number of reviews on Amazon.com to six. Only 19 to go to reach that magic number where Amazon begins to promote my book!

I’m still hoping to reach $100 in royalties, which means 350 sales; Amazon only pays me 35 cents on a 99 cent book. It seems an insurmountable goal, but maybe it’s not. If you haven’t shared  this post yet, please do so. Any social media will do…

Be openminded and kind, and listen with your heart. – Ashley Wiles @sole_girls @evaruns #jumpforjoy

What inspires you?

JUMP FOR JOY! Photo Project

Introducing the fabulously joyful – ASHLEY WILES …

Q: What inspires you to jump for joy?
A:
I am surrounded by so much awesomeness in my life, and all the stuff that isn’t so awesome – well even more reason to jump. My learning curve has seemed steep the last couple of years in business, leadership and dealing with things I never thought I’d ever do. It is absolutely freeing to take a morning and reflect on all the lessons learned and jump for joy!

Q. Your experience doing jumping photos?
A:
This was the most fun thing I’ve done all week. Eyoalha and I laughed so hard I thought it might actually be an abs workout instead of a photo shoot. Eyoalha is super fun and made this shoot so easy to…

The Importance Of Self Care

I’d like to hear a discussion of peoples’ perception of self-care. Nice post, be kind to yourself🙂

Hookup Culture

In most cases, the world revolves around your own life. But then there are so many factors inside that life. Your life includes your job, your social life, your passions. Your life includes your relationship, your friends, and your family. Your life includes your past, present, and future.

And even though our world just revolves around us, sometimes that can be extremely exhausting and extremely discouraging.

It’s important to take care of yourself when you start feeling down or when you start feeling the weight of the world on you shoulders. Because of course you have so much to do, you can’t possibly take a break, there are people who need you. But you can’t do anything for them if you don’t take time for yourself.

So when you’re exhausted, lay down and take a nap. Don’t push yourself until you need to catch up on a week’s worth of sleep and…

The Richness of a Simple Life

This was an excellent interview I listened to over the weekend. I love how open and present Lisa Nichols is in her interviews. If you’re not familiar with her or her work, listen to the interview from the beginning. For those of you that are, I’ve started the video just after she tells about her story. She provides an amazing array of knowledge in this short amount of time, well worth the watch!
