Podcast Debut

I had the opportunity to be a guest on a Podcast last night!  Well technically the podcast will air in a couple of weeks, but it was recorded last night. Ever since I knew that Podcasts were a thing, it has been a bit of a dream of mine to be on one.  I think […]

Nothing to Lose

Hello, my name is Stephanie and one of my biggest challenges and maybe also biggest strengths is that I will tell you exactly what is on my mind. Want to know what I really think about something?  Just ask, because once it is out there in the universe I have a very difficult time keeping […]

Embrace the Joys of Summer

My devotional today is about embracing the body that God gave to us.  Not sitting on the side lines because of what we think that we look like.  Truth is…hardly anyone is actually even paying attention to what it is is YOU look like. “I want to find any and every excuse to stay covered, […]

First Day of my 2nd Act!

For the last month or so I have been calling my current stage in life my 2nd act.  I am 37, I will be 38 in August.  So, it is probably pretty safe to say that I am in the 2nd part of a 3 part life. The last day at my 9-5 was last […]

At the end of my devotion today Annie F. Downs asked the question what is the thesis statement for your life? One might think that it took a little bit of time for me to come up with, but then it hit me.  My thesis statement is my objective on my resume.  I have had […]

Ten Minutes: Brave in My Life

What is one way I am being brave in my life? Daring to think outside the box.  Daring to leave all that I know for what I believe I need. Thinking of leaving the comfort in order to receive the joy. It was like this once before.  I dared to dream and be where I […]

So, it has been awhile since I have written on a Tuesday.  Things have been busy and I have been off my game!!! I have finally got my butt back into gear after moving and so today seemed like the right day to post. Last week I did all the paperwork that I needed to […]

Well, I am down nearly 12 pounds.  158.2 is what the scale reads.  Can you believe it?  After 7 weeks of going to the gym, getting extra steps in and eating right!  I have lost 11.8 pounds.  That is pretty amazing! I made myself a bullet journal at the beginning of the year.  (I am […]
