Success Is Within You:

Do you feel empowered? Self-empowerment comes from realizing who we are in Christ. God made us, and He does not make weak people. Win the battle in her head to win the battle in your body. Let the ineffective and stagnant labels that we take ownership of go. No one can affect you unless you have first infected yourself with fears and the self-doubt to achieve what you know you can achieve. The work does not come out unless you give it freedom to.

Release Yourself from the constraints you have put on your life. Only you can break the chains.

Make the most of your time on earth being who God created you to be. No blaming. No gaming. Just a determination to be your best.

Is Parenting a Calling?

If I do not address disrespectful behaviors while our children are young, then I enable them to disrespect myself and others. The moment we let down our guard is the moment our child will think it is okay. I have learned to not assume that behavior will end in one day. I must be consistent in my actions and words to show them actions that edifies and destroys.

Parenting is a calling, and daily, we need to be there for our children. Corrupt behaviors do not start in adulthood. Often, we deal with adult behaviors that started in childhood. No parent is exempt, and every parent has tests. These tests are to make us a better person, and therefore, a better parent. We must have and show:

compassion (children need direction and purpose grounded in principles that help instead of hurting others)

humility (every one has tests to meet and hopefully transcend)

love (discipline according to our heart and not out of unhealed emotions)

patience (parenting is a lifelong endeavor)

understanding (we are all on a journey and experience life lessons).

Of course, there are more virtues that empower and strengthen us to meet and transcend our experiences.

Make this Life great and your Legacy, too! The generations to come depend on you.

Sincerely,

Timika

Our Circumstances Do Not Define Us

Good morning Spiritual Beings!

Our circumstances do not dictate how we treat our children and others. We make a bold choice to act in love, peace, and understanding. We allow our children to see that life is a journey and lessons will be learned, we apologize quickly for our lessons learned, and help our children to see that they have a reason for being here.

Parenting is a calling & a journey to reach our highest self and help children to do the same; therefore, parenting is a win-win experience. Each day that we have breath, God entrusts us to do what is right regardless of our circumstances and how we feel.

Can you imagine the hard work that goes into making a brain, heart, organs, and tissues and embodying specific gifts and talents? God is a master storyteller. Our experiences are not in vain. You have the power to meet & transcend your life experiences.

If we are stupid, never amount to anything, a failure, and other false statements, then our Creator is stupid and without potential, as well. For, are we not made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26)?

May you know how powerful you are and stand in your power.

Make this life great—one person & one family at a time,

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans (Proverbs 16: 3).

Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them. For the kingdom of heaven belongs such as these” (Matthew 19:14).

Mothers always have a choice

mama 2018

It is a great day to be alive. I am so thankful to be the mother of our beautiful two children. My journey started later than others and at the perfect time. I had my first child at the age of 36.
I remember being unsure about bringing children into the world because I was afraid of what could happen to them. I saw danger instead of possibilities.  I was not even sure I could have children, yet I always wanted a boy and a girl.
I do not like living in fear, and years ago, I realized that I could not change something without belief and faith in myself.  I am no longer afraid because I stand in the power of shaping our children into courageous, loving, and powerful, and strong beings who can make positive impacts throughout their journey. I can help shape how they take care of their body, feel about themselves, and how they face their life experiences.
I am so thankful for my mother, Thelma Jones. She decided to leave a relationship that was not working. Raising children in an abusive home was not the answer. With three kids under the age of 5, a suitcase, and 4,000 in her pocket, we traveled from Memphis Tennessee to Illinois by a Greyhound bus in search for a better life.

There are no regrets when you believe that life is for you. Our life experiences are to make us better and to help direct our paths.
I am forever grateful for the principles that our mother taught us. I continue to keep our mother’s principles close to my heart. When I was unsure of my abilities to be the mother I wanted to be, I thought of my mother.  She did it. Why can’t I?  Our mother’s principles brought me peace of mind. Being a mother of purpose is not always easy. It helps to have guiding principles to stay focused.
Here are 10 of our mother’s many principles:
1. Give from the heart and expect nothing in return.
2. Keep on trucking no matter what lies ahead
3. Be grateful for what you have
4. Be bold -Ask for what you want.
5. Live another day-You never know what the next day will bring
6. Take care of yourself-There is only one you
7. No excuses-Work from the truth
8. If you are sorry, then stop the behavior
9. Listen more and talk less
10. Break the Cycle-Change what is not working
What principles did your mother teach you?
