Prayer And Scripture Of The Day

I have truly been enjoying my Christmas Vacation.  My daughter is out of school for a week, which means I can let my teacher hat rest for a while.  I'm still giving her lessons, but I don't have to keep such a strict schedule.  

I've been taking this opportunity to spend some much needed time in prayer and boy am I feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed!  I've also been doing a lot of reading.

Tonight, after putting my daughter to bed, I decided to take a stroll over to one of my favorite authors website.  Her name is Stormie Omartian.  She is the writer of the book, "The Power Of A Praying Wife."  I was looking around the house for my copy of the book and remembered that I gave it to one of my friends.  It is a great book.

Below is the prayer of the day that's posted on her website.  May it be a blessing to you, as it has been a blessing to me!

Wishing you Mo'Love, Mo'Peace and Mo'Money~

When I Need Greater Faith

Lord, I worship You and give You the glory due Your name. I worship You in the beauty of Your holiness. I thank You that as I praise You, You are bringing my life into alignment with Your purposes. Help me to sing Your praises even when I wake up troubled in the night. Even when my soul is heavy and I don't feel like singing at all, I pray that You would put a song in my heart that rises out of me and sends away the dark clouds. Help me to know Your Word so well that I can sing of it in my praise to You. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand.
Psalm 149:5-6

Home Workout With NO Equipment!

Work Out at Home

No gym? No problem. For this total-body workout, all you need to get super-fit is your own body--it provides enough resistance to sculpt a lean, sexy physique

Kristen Dold

1104-tone-up-anywhere.jpgThe secret to scoring a slim and sexy body with a home workout? Engage as many muscles as possible while quickly moving from one exercise to the next to keep your heart rate high. In this body-weight circuit created by Raphael Verela, owner of the Circuit Works studios in Venice and Brentwood, California, you'll do a resistance exercise followed immediately by a high-energy cardio move that works the same muscle group.

"We call it the zigzag method," he says. "It effectively increases lean muscle mass and decreases body fat by engaging more muscle fibers and burning tons of calories in a short amount of time."

These no-gym-required fat burners—paired in supersets (two moves done back-to-back without resting in between)—will get you into killer condition fast. Do this total-body routine on three nonconsecutive days a week: Start with move 1 and do as many reps as you can in 60 seconds. Then do move 2 (the second part of the superset)—again, as many reps as you can do in 60 seconds. Move on to move 3 and continue this pattern until you've finished all eight moves. That's one circuit. Rest for a minute or two (or challenge yourself by taking a shorter break), then repeat for a total of two or three circuits.

Phone Sex With The Hubby: Tell Him Something Good

Phone Sex
Great foreplay for the woman on the go.
By Ladyfire Editor Debora Myers

Next time that you're aching for some extra attention or just a thrill, call him. Whether you're a newly wed or have been married for 13 years you can use the sexy phone talk to keep him hot for you.

This is great foreplay for the woman on the go. You can get him going, tease him even more while cooking dinner together. Bend over the kitchen counter and rotate that butt, run your fingers through his hair and whisper what you want from him, before the dinner boils over! Then you can continue with the tease. Taking it a step further and acting out what you have verbally already tortured him with your wild woman ways.

Tell him in very specific terms just exactly what you would like him to do to you and vise-versa.

Describe your body; whether you are thin or fat forget about the body image thing that the media dictates. Describe your virtues. This sounds cliché' but describe what your wearing and be sure to be wearing something extra sexy! Remember that men are visually oriented so give him something he can picture in his head and then transfer to his glands! It's so much fun too! At first you may feel silly but just picture him and you can go on from there!

Take it to another step and send him sexy e-mail. But you have to be careful as to who will see the mail. No sense in ruining a good thing. Get him going and you hot as a chili pepper just make sure no one gets hurt.

Remember that having sex more often makes you better able to keep fired up longer and stronger. So just like any other activity, practice makes perfect. The brain circuits governing sex when stimulated regularly can better be read faster and longer offering better and longer sexual encounters. Plus regular sex can help you to sleep better, relieve menstrual cramps and improve your all over health according to Ava Cadell, PH. D. a Los Angeles sexologist.

Keep his hormones as well as yours going strong. Just remember that men think about sex all the time. They tend to like to wander and jump on many different conquests. So we who want to keep our hubbies coming back to us have to keep the fires burning. Keep things interesting and hotter than he expects and he'll keep coming back for more! 

Today is a great day to get organized!

I have spent so many days saying, "One of these days I'm going to get myself organized."  Like I told one of my internet marketing classmates recently, I'm tired of trying to do things... I just want to get it right!

With that said as I sit and type at 3:42 AM, I'm declaring!  "Today is a great day to get organized!"

Check out this article on the importance of being organized.

Video: The science behind Ephesians 5:31 - "A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one."

One of my Facebook friends shared this video today. I thought it was very interesting...

Ephesians 5:31 says:

"A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one." - New Living Translation

I never really completely understood what that meant until I watched this video and found out the science behind it. This is just more proof to me that God is indeed very real!

I'd love to hear your opinions on this. Leave me a comment with your thoughts on the video.

Always wishing you Mo'Love, Mo'Peace and Mo'Money!

What do you do to keep your energy up throughout the day?

Middle of the night/morning devotional.

I will meditate on your precepts and have respect to your ways [the paths of life marked out by your law]. I will delight myself in your statutes; I will not forget your word. Deal bountifully with your servent, that I may live; and I will observe your word [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it]. Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.

Prayer Of Hope Through The Holy Spirit

LORD, Your Word says:
The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
I pray that You would help me Lord, to serve Christ in these things, so that
I may remain acceptable to You God, and approved of men.
Thank you, that through patience and comfort of the scriptures, I have hope.
And now thank You Lord, the God of Hope, for filling me with all joy and peace in believing,
that I may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I thank you for these things In Jesus Name, Amen.

How Happy Couples Stay Happy!

Have you ever wondered how happy couples stay happy?  Well, if you have you are not alone.  There are so many people involved in a struggling relationship.  So many in fact, that there are also many people that simply don't believe that there is such a thing as a happy couple.  Some believe that true love is simply wording from a fairy-tale.

The fact is that true love does exist and it doesn't come easy so to speak.  People have to work at keeping their relationship fresh, new and fun.  And we all know that hard work pays off.  You don't work, you don't eat.  You don't work at your marriage, you won't reap the rewards!

You will never find someone who is just like you!  And although you may think that you are perfect, you're not.  And nor is your spouse.  Once you accept that, you'll be alright.

I shared a good article today on my Pure Marital Passion Facebook fan page.  I want to share it with you.

How To Prevent America’s #1 Disease: Stress

Dani Johnson - www.DaniJohnson.com

Let’s face it, life is fast-paced! We, the people, have busy schedules that determine the shortness of our days. There is work, school, soccer practice, Bible study, and then dinner is somewhere in the middle before bedtime. Routine doctor appointments are not a high priority until symptoms drive you or your loved ones to the waiting room.

After sitting on the examination table, getting swabbed with cotton, lots of questions and tests, many are diagnosed with fighting one common disease: Stress.

Nearly half of all Americans admit stress affects their lives. The other 50% of Americans usually test positive for abnormal levels of anxiety. In fact, many Americans who feel comfortable coping with their worries have been reported to have the same level of stress as if they were standing face to face with a roaring lion. Facts and figures agree: Stress, when undiagnosed and untreated, becomes a deadly disease.

Is your Christian congregation giving you practical ways to reduce the stress levels in your life? Is your local body of believers decreasing, or increasing, your stress? If your weekly fellowship separates every day life from spiritual principles by glazing over relevant topics, like stress and how to eliminate it, then listen as Dani boldly shares how!

What do your stress test results show?

It is time for you to schedule an appointment and have an evaluation. Listen to this Sunday Morning Spiritual Equipping Radio Show to take your stress test. Find out if any adjustments are necessary in your life. What are you waiting for? Your change starts here!

Is Thanksgiving A Pagan Holiday?

Here I go again...  being the party pooper.  But somebody has got to tell the TRUTH!  I shared the truth about Holloween being a pagan holiday with all of my Facebook friends on Holloween.  I didn't post it on my blog, but I will so that you can check that out.   

Now, let's get into the true meaning of Thanksgiving.  Lord knows I love Turkey, Ham, Greens, Dressing, Cranberry Sauce, Gravy, Pie, Macarroni and Cheese and all that GOOD stuff!  But why do we make all this good food on this particular day and celebrate "Thanksgiving"?  Have you ever wondered?

I know you heard the story in school about the pilgrims and the indians and all that.....  blah, blah, blah... I don't even want to go into it.  But have you ever researched it on your own?  We all know you can't just take everything you hear and believe it.  So why do we think everything we learned in school is 100% true or not go deeper to find out the whole story?  

It reminds me of all of the people on Facebook that were sending out the message about Facebook charging people a fee for their account.  I was so tired to seeing the posts and I could not believe how many people were just blindly spreading the message without doing a lick of research.  That's pretty scary if you ask me!

Anyhow, one of my Youtube friends put up 2 good videos about the true pagan meaning of Thanksgiving... and like I said, don't even just take her word for it... do your own research to find out for yourself!  That is if you care enough to do so.  

Wishing you success in Love and Life,

Personal Branding and How Important It Is To Your Marketing Strategy

The American Marketing Association (AMA) defines a brand as a "name, term, sign, symbol or design, or a combination of them intended to identify the goods and services of one seller or group of sellers and to differentiate them from those of other sellers.

Therefore it makes sense to understand that branding is not about getting your target market to choose you over the competition, but it is about getting your prospects to see you as the only one that provides a solution to their problem.

The objectives that a good brand will achieve include:

Delivers the message clearly
Confirms your credibility
Connects your target prospects emotionally
Motivates the buyer
Concretes User Loyalty
To succeed in branding you must understand the needs and wants of your customers and prospects. You do this by integrating your brand strategies through your company at every point of public contact.

Your brand resides within the hearts and minds of customers, clients, and prospects. It is the sum total of their experiences and perceptions, some of which you can influence, and some that you cannot.

A strong brand is invaluable as the battle for customers intensifies day by day. It's important to spend time investing in researching, defining, and building your brand. After all your brand is the source of a promise to your consumer. It's a foundational piece in your marketing communication and one you do not want to be without.

Married Sex Tip: Use Sex To Get Past The Ruts In Your Marriage

I shared this tip today on my PureMaritalPassion Facebook page today....  Join Us!  Let's get passionate about our marriages :)

There will be times in your marriage when careers, family, kids, friends, hobbies and other important tasks will pack your schedule and get in the way of maintaining a good relationship. There will be periods when the two of you are not communicating well and don’t seem to be connecting with each other. When you experience these ruts in your relationship, don’t let sex go by the wayside. Use the time you have together wisely by getting frisky. If your marriage is experiencing a dip, it’ll fall even further if the two of you don’t connect sexually. Instead of abandoning your bedroom activities at the first sign of trouble, use sex to get back on track.


Always wishing you success in Love and Life~

9 Ways To Increase Your Productivity When Working From Home

Nellie Akalp is CEO of CorpNet.com, her second incorporation filing service based on her strong passion to assist small business owners and entrepreneurs in starting and protecting their business. She has formed more than 100,000 corporations and LLCs across the U.S. To learn more about Nellie and see how she can help your business get off the ground quickly and affordably, please visit here.
Whether telecommuting or freelancing, more and more professionals are trading in the cubicle for the home office. We hear all about the perks of the work from home lifestyle — no long commutes, more time with family, conference calls in pajamas, etc. But what about the challenges? It’s not always easy to stay productive in the face of countless distractions.
If you’re working from home, chances are you’re a freelancer, consultant, or small business owner. This means your ability to get paid is directly tied to how productive you are. As a freelancer, wasting time equals wasting money.
Here are some tips on how to stay focused as you move through the workday, while still enjoying all the unique benefits of working at home.

1. Respect Your Own Time

When you work at an office, family and friends seem to naturally respect your schedule. But when you’re working from home, you’ll inevitably get calls at 11:00 a.m. or be expected to handle the daily errands. I’m not saying you shouldn’t wait for the cable appointment or chat on the phone, but be mindful of how easy it is to have time ripped from your workday.
It’s important to set boundaries, if needed. People will respect your schedule, only if you respect it first.

2. Impose Time Limits on Specific Tasks

It’s easy to become distracted, particularly when dealing with a task that’s challenging or a bit dull. If you find yourself losing focus, tell yourself to dedicate just 15 more minutes to the task on hand. Knowing there’s an end in sight might inject new energy into the project. And if not, move on to something else and return to it when you’re in a better mindset.

3. Set Strict Deadlines

Ever wonder why you’re ultra productive when facing a tight deadline, while a simple task can take hours to complete? You might chalk this up to working well under pressure, but it could also be Parkinsons Law, which basically states that a task will expand to fill the time you can give it. Combat this phenomenon by imposing your own deadlines for specific tasks. These can be as complicated as finishing a proposal or as simple as responding to a client email.

4. Log Off for “Power Productivity” Hours

Digital distractions aren’t just limited to Facebook and YouTube. For most, the daily barrage of emails and IMs from friends and colleagues ends up being the day’s biggest time sink. If you’re stuck in your inbox, dedicate chunks of the day when you unplug from your phone and email to get work done. You can log back on afterward and power through the necessary responses.

5. Delineate Your Workspace

Ideally you can have an area dedicated as your office (and preferably with a door so you can shut out unwanted distractions). Creating boundaries not only helps you be more productive "at work," but also helps you decompress during your personal time.

6. Slowing Down? Change Your Environment

If you find yourself stuck (and you’ve already tried the “just 15 more minutes” tactic), change your environment. Go work at the café for an hour, or brainstorm at the park. A change in scenery can spark new ideas and give you newfound focus.

7. Conduct a Time Audit

Ever finish up the day and wonder where your time went? If you’re self-employed, it’s important to understand exactly how you’re using your time. Every so often, conduct a detailed audit of your day and keep track of what you did and how long it took. These audits can reveal great insights into your daily workflow and can help you make adjustments where needed — whether it’s getting help for your bookkeeping, dropping an overly demanding client, or condensing multiple trips to the grocery store.

8. Create Task Lists

I tend to have multiple lists running at any given time. One list keeps track of longer term goals (for example, the projects I need to complete by the end of the week or month). Then each morning I also create a focused outline for the day’s tasks. Try to keep your daily list as realistic and uncluttered as possible. Nothing can sap your motivation like staring at an overly ambitious list full of items you can’t possibly complete.

9. Make Your Breaks Count

Whether you’re working at home or in the office, it’s not possible to stay focused for hours on end. Breaks are an integral part of the workday, but make sure your free time counts. Have you ever denied yourself a trip to the gym or lunch with a friend “because you’re too busy?”
Chances are that on that very same day, you spent well over an hour browsing eBay, watching TV, looking at Facebook, checking your online bank account, or organizing your medicine cabinet. Busy work doesn’t accomplish anything and won’t recharge your batteries. So take your dog for a hike, take an actual lunch, or do whatever you enjoy. You’ll not only end up being happier, but more productive as well.

What are some of the ways that you cut out distractions and stay productive while working from home? Share your best practices in the comments.
