Killer of Dreams
Ladies!!!! Let's have some Real Talk today! So many times we think back on our Dreams. We talk about them, we research them. But we don't ever take a Step to make them happen. One of the Biggest Killer of Dreams is
We think we have tons of it! Or we think we don't have the time for US because all of our time goes to our kiddos and family. Take this Blog for instance. God gave me a dream about this blog when I was in my 20's before I even became a Momma. Before Blogging was the "Cool" thing to do. I have been researching bloggers and how to start and the best things to do for YEARS Years y'all! Then on my 38th Birthday my Momma said Jess it is TIME for you to do what God has called you to do! Dude what a wake up call! I knew what to do, I knew how to start! So I just woke up and DID IT! You see we can dream and pray but we have to MOVE. God did not create Chairs but he gave us Trees. Think about it! He gave us what we needed and then Gave us VISION, Creativity, & Dreams for what COULD BE! Your Purpose is so much bigger! God does not make mistakes! Let's Get up and take what God gave us and make it into a Beautiful CHAIR lol!!! One of the other Killers of Dreams is
Will people think I am crazy? Will people like it or hate it? Will they even go and read it, see it? STOP IT! Girl, you are a Child of THE KING! Repeat this after me.... I AM HIS FAVORITE. Well I am, technically! LOL! But for Reals God does not make Junk! You are His Favorite and if He put those desires in your heart HE is the one that will make them come to pass!!
*Ladies I am not your Momma but I am your Sister so Here is your wake up call! IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO DO WHAT GOD CREATED YOU TO DO! #dreamon
*Stop Overthinking! Just wake up and DO IT!!! This is your Time! No more Fear in Jesus Name! Call your Bestie and tell her you need a Push/Pep talk and then take a deep breath and put one foot in front of the Other and watch God Show you how to make that Chair lol
What are some Killers of Dreams that you can think of? How can we work together as sisters to overcome them? Comment and lets keep the Conversation going!

And so it Begins.......
Well here goes Everything! I know the saying is nothing, but I am saying everything because that is how I roll. I am a hundred and ten percent all in! My goal in this blog is to Encourage Women across the globe to Jump in and show up in their lives. So many times we walk around and just let life happen to us instead of getting up every day and decide that we are going to Live on Purpose with Purpose. I want to be your number one cheerleader. I want to help you succeed in anything and everything you put your heart, mind, and soul into! Ok? Well On Your Mark, Get Set, GO!
Lets talk Relationships Y'all!
They are HARD! For Reals! Specifically today I am going to get real, Raw, and honest about Marriage. My husband and I met when I was 12. Yes 12. We have been together for 24 years. Now that you put your calculators down and know how old I am lets talk about what this means. This means that we learned to communicate with each other when we were Pre-Teens. (I need to be able to insert emojis here) Now that my Son is a full on pre-teen I am learning so much more about my relationship with my hubs of 18 years and why communication has been such a huge struggle for us. My son is so emotional and stubborn and thinks he knows everything and would argue with a brick wall about the wall being orange. When in real life it is red. Y'all for real my son is my husbands twin. The hubs and I have fought to communicate better year after year. There has been A LOT of fighting y'all. A LOT. But there has been a lot of learning too. I want to share just one tool we have learned.
We HAVE to fight fair!
For the longest we would fight and fight and get nowhere. Neither one of us could see things from another perspective. Ok truth is we did not choose to even think about the others perspective because we were too caught up in our own views of the situation. Have you ever done that with God? Think about it. We pray and pray and pray and talk to God and we get so mad at Him because we think He is not listening when all along He is listening and showing you the way but you can't get out of "Your View" enough to see/hear what He is doing? No? Me either lol. Well that is what Shane and I have learned to do with each other. We have learned to move past our frustration and view of what is happening and really listen to what the other has to say and how they see it instead of playing the blame game and getting nowhere. OK so don't go thinking WOW they have a perfect marriage. NO BRO! We still fight but we have a code word that takes us from the blame game or frustration point and causes us to take a step back and see the others view/perspective. I would tell you the word but umm no. LOL So I encourage you to open up to your spouse while you are not in a fight and say "Lets talk about how we fight" why not y'all?!?! Let's build Healthy Relationships TOGETHER. One Day at a time. One Choice at a time. One FIGHT at a time. Your Marriage is worth this conversation. Get a Code Word. Start Listening, really Listening. Often, there is a underlying frustration that has nothing to do with the actual thing you are fighting about.
God I pray that you would Bless the Marriage of every woman reading this! I pray that you would begin mending their relationships with their husbands starting TODAY. Starting Right this Second. Help them to learn to fight Fair! -In Jesus Name I pray-Amen
