If you wait around for conditions to be perfect, life will pass you by.
I felt life was passing me by. I had an urgency to do something different. I had no idea what that was or how to go about it, I just knew I HAD TO DO SOMETHING!
So my husband and I just sold everything we own and bought a fifth wheel to live in. That seems radical and, it sort of is but it did not happen all at once.
It all began in 2014 when the word “SIMPLIFY” kept appearing in my mind and in my face.
Literally everywhere I went there was some sort of message to simplify.
SO ,the process began. One downsize after another until we ended up in a fifth wheel about 1 year ago.
Some downsizing was due to circumstance and some by choice.
Many ask if I miss my stuff- NO! Not at all. I feel so free not to have to manage all that stuff that was just weighing me down. Of course I didn’t realize the weight of it until it was all gone. So now what?
Now ,we manage less stuff and can have more fun.
Our time is spent building and serving community in the space we occupy .
Just simply engage in life more ,rather it be riding bikes, attending concerts, farmers markets, local events, or traveling some.
If we want a beach house or a lake house or a mountain home, we have it. Just pick up and move. The beauty is we can now go where we want and not have to stay permanently.
We decided to just dive in and start our dream. Give ourselves space to be able to live our dream of a simpler life.
Living in a small space is definitely a learning experience but I know it will be worth it.
So… if you feel that your dream is up on a shelf, I encourage you to take a leap of faith! You will learn much more by diving in and making mistakes than you will by playing it safe.

We recently sold everything we own and bought a fifth wheel to live in full time. We found ourselves feeling unsatisfied with status quo and desired a simpler way of living.
I get a lot of questions about how we sold EVERYTHING!
Well, it was no simple task and I am sure others have done the same in a much more efficient way but we got the job done and we got it done fast. Here is what I did.
I first started selling all the things I rarely used or simply did not want any longer online a few months prior to the actual move. I used FB marketplace for this part.
I sold all sorts of items from entertaining glassware to a flat iron. People love a good deal!
If you are thinking of downsizing in the future I suggest you start doing this part now.
Then, I placed an ad in the newspaper. Yes it is still a popular way to advertise in the small upper NE state we lived in. I also utilized all modalities available on Face Book. FB Marketplace is my favorite.
We had a three day moving sale /living estate sale.
Since we would be living in our fifth wheel, we needed very little. We put all the items we wanted to keep in one room of our house and closed the door.
We priced everything else, opened the doors and just rolled with it. IT WAS CRAZY!
We sold a majority of our items at this sale. There were some items left in the house that we decided to sell once we got an offer on our house.
Two months later we went at it again. This time I relied solely on Facebook Market place and the buy/sell online groups in the area.
This takes lots of monitoring and tons of patience and plenty of Stress Away oil. Make up your mind in advance that kindness is the way and keep the overall goal in mind… Get rid of stuff!
This part of the process took one week since we were also doing final repairs and cleaning of our home for the new owners.
Everything that was left, we gave away and donated to charities. The result….. FREEDOM!
I would do it all over again given the chance.
If you are considering selling it all to achieve a dream, GO FOR IT!
It is time to start speaking truth over ourselves!
Listen friend, the Word of God tells us that God is LOVE. He says we are made in HIS image.
That means we are the image of LOVE. Speak love over yourself and see if you don’t experience a “shift”.
Recently I looked in the mirror and said to me “you are fat”. Ouch. If someone other than our own self said that to us it would hurt badly! STOP!
DO you realize that our cells listen to our thoughts? It is true, not only do they listen but they do what they hear. Think about that one. Our thoughts are POWERFUL!
When I was healing from bc I spoke this over myself multiple times a day.
“I am healthy, I am well, I am whole in Jesus name.” Each time I was conscious of my thoughts and my words, a peace washed over me. I found that it was easier to feel love for myself.
Feeling love for myself made me desire healthier choices. Healthier choices of course bring positive results.
Somewhere along the line I got away from loving me and speaking truth to me.
I like to think of it this way-If positive is light then negative is dark. Light casts out darkness.
Each time you catch yourself thinking or speaking negative-stop, change it to something positive.
Visualize the light casting out the darkness.
This week I am starting to speak the outcome I desire. Won’t you join me?
Here are few ideas to speak over yourself about your body.
“I am doing a great job” I love my slender body” “I love my body” “ I love you, you are doing great”-(look in the mirror).
“My body loves the healthy choices I make” “I am grateful for my healthy active lifestyle” “I prosper in good health” “I am beautiful”
Self -loathing will never equal love.
A really great book is “God’s Creative Power” by Charles Capps.

Sad that we even have to think about this….But we DO!
When I was diagnosed with BC in 2017 I chose to heal naturally.
I was fortunate to find a doctor that actually understands the human body and it’s “intelligent design”.
He looked at areas of my body for clues like skin tags, skin discoloration, lifted toenails, body temperature, blood tests ect.
He helped me get my hormones balanced and make some changes in my eating and my exercise routine.
He helped me to understand the why behind the what. … He encouraged me to research xenoestrogens and endocrine disruptors.
Xeno means fake or false ,so fake estrogens. Fake means synthetic. Synthetic is made by a man in a laboratory. We are not synthetic, we are natural!
When our body is full of fake estrogen it causes estrogen dominance which makes FAT CELLS MULTIPLY!!!! The synthetic substance lives in our fat cells. Can you see the importance of stopping this crazy cycle?
Endocrine disruptors means this supply of fake estrogens disrupt your endocrine system. So basically these fake estrogens throw off your entire endocrine and natural hormonal system eventually leaving you with horrific symptoms and even diseases such as in my case.
When I researched this I did not have to go very far before I realized the direct correlation and the impact this had on my health.
There are some things we can’t control but there is MUCH WE CAN CONTROL! We are the gatekeeper of our home and WE control what we purchase and use on the daily.
It is crazy to think that the simple products we use every single day year after year are harming us.
Things like shampoo, toothpaste, make-up, deodorant, soap, dish soap, house cleaners, air fresheners, candles….. just normal seemingly harmless products that we all use.
I have a very vivid memory of the day I had my awakening. I was mad! I was shocked! But….It caused me to take control of my health.
I filled an entire trash bag with products from every cabinet and counter in my home.
I found a source of products that I trusted and replaced the chemical based products for plant based products.
I also discovered that just because a label says it is “clean” or “natural” does not mean it really is. This is why a trusted source is so important.
Our bodies are amazing! When you stop the toxification and assist your body in getting rid of the toxins that accumulated inside of you and love your body by filling it with good, it then loves you back and heals. It is truly remarkable!
This has had such a profound effect on my own body and I KNOW the importance , I want to share truth with every woman I can.

I am just a woman that wants to help other women.

I was watching life just pass me by! Have you ever felt that way?
That realization is exactly what woke me up and propelled me to decide to make a change. I mean really, I was created for more than just a comfortable life, and let’s get real, sometimes not so comfortable.
For something to change, something has to change!
I remember it vividly, I woke up at 5 a.m. with a urgency of passion in my heart. I had to get out of bed and write my thoughts down.
I wrote down things I wanted in life. Experiences, expectations, feelings, material items, accomplishments…everything!
I wrote down things I was feeling and did not like. I opened my bible to Proverbs 31 and read this line:
SHE DOES NOT FEAR HER FUTURE…
I did fear my future because I felt so unfulfilled. I don’t mean unfulfilled in my marriage or my children…
I mean unfulfilled in my abilities vs accomplishments. I know I was created for something amazing! It just felt like I was leaving so much on the table.
It also felt like there was no point in dreaming because income would not allow anything else.
And then it hit me…. I surely am not the only one that feels this way. I know there must be other women that feel like life is passing them by. There are things they want to accomplish and a joy filled life is just waiting to be lived. What is stopping us? Well for me, and maybe for you as well, it is lack of belief.
Somewhere in raising kids and just doing life, I had lost touch with who I was and what I was capable of . Then an empty nest revealed a life that felt empty. I wanted more.
I began praying for an open door. Something that I could really do and, something that is not only possible but 100% probable.
Then …. I found it. Or rather it found me. An opportunity that is so simple, so fulfilling, so doable it had me wondering why I didn’t see it sooner.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
I know it was God that awakened my heart. Let me tell you the very best part. I get to bring other women alongside me and the very same opportunity is available to them as well.
We are forming a community of like minded women that want more for themselves and want to give more to the world around them and together, we thrive! It has been so amazing, so fulfilling and FUN!
A lot of money in the hands of good people can do a lot of good things in this world.
If you are feeling unfulfilled and you are waiting for an opportunity that is 100% probable to succeed, then please get in touch and let’s talk about it. It may not be for you and that is 100% OK. I can’t wait to meet you and show you just what is really possible!
Have the best day!
