I love the show Shark Tank. Life-changing deals… What’s not to love? Here are three lessons from the show that you can use when looking for your dream job.
So neither one of my books is specifically about Father’s Day or specifically written to fathers.
Unless perhaps your father is unemployed and needs a gift of hope and help.
Unless perhaps your father is the one being abused and needs truth and a gift of hope.
Both books are specifically about hope, the Truth and transforming lives.
The Kindle version of either book will be offered for 99 cents, beginning on Sunday June 21st through Sat. June 27th.
In case you want to give some hope…

Exactly the conversation I have had with two friends this week. So many of us on an Accidental Sabbatical… re-imagining our lives. Brilliant post, Theresa.
I focus on hope and take it a day at a time, continually looking for the ‘best use of me’.
My book, Accidental Sabbatical, is available for 99 cents until tomorrow: http://amzn.to/1ocgejJ
That question – in a nutshell – occupies a fair amount of my time now that I’m “not working.”
People who know me, know me as I once described in one of my posts. In my adult life, I’ve been many things: daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, aunt, wife, ex-wife, mother. Optometrist, Licensed Professional Counselor, writer, teacher, advisor. Friend, adversary, student, mentor, volunteer, colleague, supervisor, supervisee, boss, advocate, committee member, office holder, perfectionist, overachiever. Catalyst, irritant, critic. Tourist, retreatant, co-journeyer, listener, speaker. Avid reader. Supplicant to Saints Francis, Jude, Therese, Teresa and Michael the Archangel. [Human Being? Human Doing? Human Becoming?]
Now that modern medicine has us not only living longer, but living healthier lives, what to do with this life re-imagined?
Two comments I hear (too) often that bother me to no end:
1) Where do you work? (Nowhere???)
2) How do you like being retired?…

I just want to share with all of you a reminder that God is always with us and gives us the encouragement that we need to keep walking in faith. You see, I posted just this picture that I found with the poem by Helen Steiner Rice last night with Jeremiah 29:11, a verse that I have to hold onto every day. Then this morning, October 6, as I read my devotional, “Jesus Calling”, these words just jumped out at me…
“Be willing to follow wherever I lead. Follow me wholeheartedly with glad anticipation quickening your pace. Follow though you don’t know what is ahead. I know and that is enough. Some of My richest blessings are just around the bend: out of sight but nevertheless, very real. To receive these gifts, you must walk by faith, not by sight…”
So I add these words to my posting to give…

This is an awesome idea. What could each of us offer to help others?
‘Every Human Life Is Worth The Same’
Mark Bustos is a hair stylist at an upscale salon in New York City, but not all of his clientele have to be wealthy to get a quality trim. Sometimes, they don’t need a penny.
Bustos spends every Sunday — his only day off from work — venturing through the city in search of anyone in need who’d appreciate a haircut. Approaching each person with the same, simple phrase — “I want to do something nice for you today” — Bustos provides cuts to up to six people every Sunday, capturing many stylings on his Instagram account.
Bustos has been cutting hair for the less fortunate since May 2012, when he traveled to the Philippines to visit family members. While abroad, he paid an owner of a barbershop to rent a chair and provide services to impoverished children in need of a fresh…

I receive an email every day with a ‘Minute with Maxwell’, where John Maxwell gives a short uplifting encouragement on a different word every day.
Today it is about GOALS.
I’ve been working on my goals all year long. Time to assess if there has been growth that goes with them.
Are you growth-oriented or goal-oriented?
