The Great RecoveryDid you have a chance to see The Great Recovery live and streaming on Thursday, July 21? If not, you can view the replay here.

 It was nothing less that expected and always appreciated from Dave Ramsey, he never ceases to deliver a powerful and assertive message. I would like to pull out a few points that were mentioned in the broadcast and would love to read your insights as well.

  • The borrower is always slave to the lender. It sounds pretty simple, right? The people/companies whom one is indebted to are able to take away what they have in a moments notice, if need be, and they have nothing to show for their luxury and status. We can turn this around with simple steps like focusing our hearts on God, creating [and sticking to] a budget and getting rid of the debt as quickly as the budget allows and God provides.

“The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave of the lender.” Proverbs 22:7

  • Media plays a huge role in our outlook and if you listen to the media… the outlook isn’t good at all. But! God is good and in Him we have Hope for our long term goals, not hopelessness in the face of the short term. Dave gave an example of investors getting out of the market and “losing everything” when things went downhill a few years ago, however, Dave is a huge communicator of the ten year [long term] plan. You silly people to pull out with a few months of bad performance, those who stayed in and rode the roller coaster are so much better off today. Here is what I did during the downturn [call me crazy, B surly though so]- the price of shares decreased, but so did the cost of buying those same shares… so I purchased as many shares as I was able with the minimal income that was left in the budget! Woot, we are sitting a little better in our retirement future and I go the shares on SALE! Take that you staunch media reports, why didn’t you tell others to buy, buy, buy instead of sell, sell, sell? Now that, my friends, is crazy!

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12

  • God uses Me to provide for Me [Meaning He does not use the Government to provide for Me, get it?]. God gave me certain abilities to help me succeed and prosper in the roles I am guided toward. Did you know that there isn’t even a “government” system when we go to be with our friends? It is hard to wrap my mind around it, because God is all powerful and all knowing, He must have a tiered hierarchy or system of legalities… but he does not; You and I and He are EQUAL, it’s so amazing and I can’t help but SMILE when I type it out. God provides for Me and for You, there is no other way, but we must diligent in discipline in our work; I laughed at “Pray while you’re workin’”.

Diligence = Excellence over time with discipline

  • The way to fix the economy: One at a Time. If we can come together and fix one person at a time we can start to change the economy because one person will lead to one family. One Family changes leads to one church and community, which leads to a changed city, changed state and even a changed country. That sounds amazing and I want to be a part of it – I want to be One! I want to encourage you to be One as well and we will walk in this together, the change is going to knock our socks off!

What can you do to increase the momentum of change? Join the Recovery, find a Financial Peace University [or other financial wellness] class to engage in and share the movement with your friends, family and congregation.

What did you get from the broadcast? Are you as excited as I am to see the changes that are going to come from One person at a time?

Day Moon

There is something magical about seeing the moon in the day time.

It’s like God’s eye, reminding you that He is here and that He is watching, making sure we are safe.

Thanks God, I needed it today!

If you have a minute, would you please pray for my Dad? He is currently working in Columbia to fix a computer for a crane company. It turns out that he can’t start the job when the machine doesn’t work [DuH] and he can’t get his personal computer to work on the electricity converter. He misses my mom, his personal space… and English ;)

How can I pray for you today?

The Great RecoveryMy homeboy, Dave Ramsey, is stirring up emotions again… Sweet! You may not know this, but I finished up my college career working with clients on the Dave Ramsey program with Aggie Green, former Investment and Insurance ELP in Houston. It was so much fun to see people work out a budget, stick to it and become debt free, these client’s were like family and I truly enjoyed being able to help them start their financial legacy.

On July 21 at 7pm, he will be live-streaming The Great Recovery here, it is sure to knock your socks off. The call of action is to turn our financial economy around through one family, one church, one community at a time; we can no longer rely on the government to do the right thing when it comes to our Founding Father’s original plan for prosperity of this Great Nation.

I encourage you to register for the live stream to secure a spot in the stream, there will be a replay available an hour after broadcast.

Want to find out more about the movement and get inspired? Of course you do! Check out The Great Recovery, listen to testimonies of supporting pastors and read stories of inspiration from top leaders in the Christian community.

Our Great Nation is in desperate need of prayer, please let us know how we can pray for you today! All things are possible through God, He is our strength!

UPDATE: Check my Recap HERE. Enjoy!

H Wedding

Happy 3rd Anniversary

To my amazing Husband,

I love you more today than I did when I married you. You are a wonderful Husband and Father and a tremendous leader to our family. I am so grateful God gave me the strength to take you on, you are my life’s biggest journey and I enjoy every minute we are together.

To my sweet Daughter,

I never knew I could love somebody, so much, who was not my own creation. God has given me you to bring up in Him and I am grateful for His challenge; you are so precious to me and I love you more that you can imagine. I pray to help you soar high and be amazing in His [and our] eyes.

Please pray for my dear family. We are in our third year, with many more to come. As we enter a world that is broken, please become parallel in our prayers that we will stay on the straight and narrow, in God’s word and on God’s path.

Happy Anniversary!!!! I love my Peeps!

Mom + Dad

If there is any time where Pride ALWAYS get’s the best of me… it is being an American. I LVE being an American; I love our flag, I love our traditions and I love being a citizen of the “Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave.”

 Memorial Day 2011

This weekend we Remember those who have, unselfishly, fought for our rights and [many] given their lives so we may enjoy our above standard freedoms as American’s.
