Life Savers in Three Flavors

Well hello there! I pray all is well with you and you are having a fabulous day :D

I’m so excited to share my latest interview with you. This interview was done with such a wonderful young lady who works with an organization called Pregnancy Care Centre. This organization provides help, support, encouragement and spiritual guidance for young moms.

For all you moms out there check out; IAmNotAlone.ca for more info about this organization.

Here’s the interview, it’s a short two minute video. I hope you can take a peek ;)

Friends, I cannot thank you enough for all your support over the past while. God bless <3

We Can Do It!

I am so thrilled to share my mission statement with you!

Here it is:

 My goal is to help empower others to rise out of the rubble of their lives, their past and embrace who they are through Jesus Christ. We all may have a past but it’s learning to not allow our past to have us. We can and we will, rise above. We were made for great things. I am living proof of that! – Christina Lane

To my lady friends, no matter what you may be facing right now, know and learn to know, you are an awesome woman! This takes “learning” on our part. To learn to love ourselves more than loving (or caring) what other people think of us.  This comes from a deep understanding of who we really are. Get to know yourself and get to love yourself. The incredible respect you start to feel and the  confidence to break free and do what you dream of doing, is absolutely amazing!

I am a beautiful, strong, amazing woman whom God loves soooo much and has made me into the person I am :)

Let today be the start of making a change. A change in how you think about yourself, about others and about life. YOU CAN DO IT!

I have this on my mirror as a reminder of who I choose to be. Go and write something nice about yourself, pin it up somewhere you’ll see it often and read it to yourself daily. Lets make the change! (and I’ll tell ya, if you have children, you can bet your bottom dollar they too will catch on to this goodness. :D

Transition? Change? Success??????

Hey good morning friends.  Hope the week is off to a great start for you.

I’m struggling with a few things. Maybe not struggling but disturbed? Not sure. I do know there is a disturbance in my soul, in my spirit.

I have a lot going on. I’m not sure if I shared with you previously about the book I was writing? Well if not, I have written a book and it has been sent to a few publishers and two have responded back with some serious interest. I am also struggling with the fact that my life is changing. My family life is changing. My kids are growing up and having a life of their own. This leaves me feeling, where do I fit into this transition, and, I’m also feeling very proud and happy that my kids are growing up. Last night I expressed some feelings and a need to stay connected as a family. I’m asking for, every week or at least, every two weeks we commit to getting together and hanging out. I need this connection. Family is very important to me and I feel when we stay connected with our kids this helps to ward off other things. Everyone needs to feel connected. We are human, we were created to be connected to God and other people through relationship. When we don’t, we go in search of other things and those other things can be lead us down an ugly path.

It’s very strange because I sit here and write this, I feel all shaky inside. Weird. Could it be that I don’t do well with change? That is a very big possibility. You see, I was thinking about what is really going on in me about this transition and I thought to myself, is it because I feel I don’t have a life outside my family? I pondered on this question and the answer is, no. I don’t feel that way. A few years ago I could say with confidence that yes, that would have been the reason but today that is not so. I also thought about some self sabotaging behaviour I have when it comes to having some success in my life. You see, I’m coming to the end of my studies in school and this with that I will receive my diploma and certification as a Addiction Care Worker. I also have submitted my finished book and there is interest in having it published. These are two major accomplishments for me. A few years ago they were just dreams. Maybe goals. And now they have come to pass and I feel, I feel… I want to say threatened. My oh my, what is going on here? There’s this big part of me that wants to turn around and run and run and run. People, I have no clue where I’d run to and honestly, me and running don’t go well together, I wouldn’t get very far. Hahaha

So my friends, I guess what is happening here is, I am moving forward and at the same time, I am trying to move back. That ugly mindset that lurks around in my brain of, “I’m not deserving of success”. That is a bunch of cow plop! I’ve allowed this distorted thinking to ruin many things in my life.  It needs to stop now.  Heaven help me.

Well alright, I’m off to do some school work and that will be my goal for the day. Finish up part of my last assignment. One thing, one step and one day at a time. Yup. Only way to do it. :)

Lord, You got me this far, may I do what I can do and You continue to do what I can’t.

Have a blessed day friends ;)
