The Good Times Are Back

Things are busy, busy, busy here. I realize I haven't given you all an update about how things are going. I want to thank all of you for your prayers. Lately, I've really started to understand the power of prayers and can finally accept the advise of my mother that "everything happens for a reason". Aren't we all blessed to have a God who hears our prayers? As most of you know, my husband had been laid off from his job. We went through a few very hard weeks but you know what I'm proud of how we handled that time. It was a pure illustration of how our marriage has grown and matured. During that time we didn't fight, blame, or draw away from one another like I believe we probably would have during the early years of our relationship. What we did instead was hold each other, talk, and become closer than we ever had. God became a more prominent part of our household and our lives. Anyway, for those of you that read this and are currently suffering, just remember that eventually you will be able to pull yourself out of the bottom of the dark hole and into the light. The world is always balancing itself and sometimes to really appreciate happiness and the good things...you have to also go through the bad. Readers, I'll be back shortly.

You are SO right! Good for you and your honey, it is truly a blessing to have someone that cares and understands instead of the alternative! I will continue to keep you in my prayers in hopes that we all will have better lives in this time of uncertainty! xo

Dear friend,

Consider joining us for our Wonderous Woman Retreat if:

* You are overwhelmed and exhausted with day-to-day pressures in all the roles you play
* You wish you could find harmony among the demands of your career, family, relationships, and financial freedom
* You have dreams but have put them on the back burner because there is no time or money to invest in them
* You want to know your purpose and live life abundantly
* You would love to experience some quiet time just for you
* You love to be pampered and treated like royalty

If any or this resonates with you, join us at the beautiful Fairmont Scottsdale Spa Resort on August 13-15
for our Wonderous Woman retreat.

It’s easy to take care of everyone else in our lives,
but we tend to forget about ourselves.
