Pushing Rocks Up a Hill With a Dear Friend And A Plan

Posted by on Oct 13, 2016 in Empowerment, Family, Freedom Abounds, Kids, Pure EmPowerment | 0 comments

Have you ever felt like  you were pushing rocks up a hill? I mean really pushing boulders up a mountain with no end in sight in some rickety old wheel barrel. Some weeks are just hard, some days are just hard too.  Okay, frankly, sometimes life is just plain hard, isn’t it? And there is nothing wrong with being honest and admitting that sometimes we struggle, even on Thankful Thursdays.  To act as though life were easy would be to me dishonest.  And I, my friends, am about being as real, honest and as...

Thankful Thursdays ~ Celebrating the Small Stuff at The Holidays

Posted by on Nov 19, 2015 in Coaching With Corby, Empowerment, FabYOUlous, Freedom Abounds, Inspiration, Just Too Fabulous | 0 comments

On this Thankful Thursday I was thinking about how I tend to love celebrating the big things! I mean the BIG things and BIG accomplishments … It’s kind of like the whole “more is more, thing.”  The bigger the accomplishment the better. I am pretty sure I got that from my Dad. But Winters, on the other hand, loves to celebrate the small stuff – especially lately. Our “to do” lists have been mounting once again. And frankly, it was starting to freak me and Winters out a...

Broken But Beautiful

Posted by on Oct 24, 2014 in Empowerment, Freedom Abounds | 2 comments

Several years ago, in early December, I found the most beautiful, tall, antique white,  French clay pot. I had looked for one forever at great price.  This is just what I found…. fantastic price – fantastic pot.  I could call it a vase, but it is really more like a pot and “a vase” doesn’t work as well with my story.  It was so beautiful but all my Christmas decorations were up and there wasn’t really any room in the kitchen for it.  I promptly put it in a garage to keep...

Freedom Isn’t Free

Posted by on Jul 4, 2014 in Empowerment, Freedom Abounds | 0 comments

Freedom isn’t really free, is it?  Someone paid a price for freedom.  The founding Father’s paid a price… Each solider that fought in every war, paid a price… And the solder’s that fight today. This very hour.  This very minute.  They fight for you and I to be free and pay a price… And even Jesus paid a price for you and I to be free… God sent His Son to die on a cross for our sins.  He died and rose again, so we could be free! The early Christians paid a price and...

Thankful Thursdays ~ A Fresh Anointing!

Posted by on Oct 31, 2013 in Freedom Abounds, Inspiration, Pure EmPowerment, Stepping Into Purpose, Thankful Thursdays | 0 comments

This morning I awoke with what I can only describe as a fresh anointing from the Lord! It came over me in the midst of cleaning house, loading the laundry into the washing machine and popping up some last-minute fall decorations.  It is funny sometimes when and how God moves isn’t it?  But I knew it was clearly a moving of the Holy Spirit ! I felt the urge to sing, so I sang.  I felt the urge to pray, so I prayed as well. It is Thankful Thursday and so on Thursday’s particularly my attention is...
