"Working Girls" - The show I found on Youtube!

It's very rare that I find something on youtube to watch that I actually enjoy enough to turn the lights off, curl up in bed and watch episode after episode, but the other night I found a show called "Working Girls" and I just loved it!

If you know anything about womens history you know that women had to fight for their place in the workforce.  Yet, there are still women who want nothing to do with work.

I, myself have been a victim of the I don't really have to work mindstate and what a miserable existence that was for me.  While I was fighting for "freedom" I  was broke and couldn't do anything!  Much like the young women in these videos.

What I like about the show is how they take these young non-working and proud women and they give them the opportunity to work for some extremely successful business women in hopes they can teach them the value of working.

While the girls were very resistant in he beginning, they quickly saw the benefits of earning a paycheck and being able to afford the luxuries of life.

Enjoy!

Always wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and Many Blessings~

Rev. Dr. Jamal H Bryant - I Don't Need A Job

One of my friends on Facebook shared a clip of the following video with me.

I wanted to hear the entire message and another one of my Facebook friends messaged me the video in it's entirety.   This same Facebook friend by the name of Tokoyo Thrive Carter, also shared with me his travel business.  I do believe in supporting other entrepreneurs.  Tokoyo is a member of Avengers Network.  You can check out his business site here to learn more about his business opportunity. 

I found the message in this teaching to be very interesting.  We as people can get so attached to individuals, places and things that we will miss what God has for us.

When it comes to jobs, many people will stay in a job that they absolutely hate in the name of a paycheck.

Check this video out and let me know what you think about the idea, "I don't need a job!"  I suggest you skip to 32:55 to get straight to the message.  The beginning of the video is the praise and worship part of the service.

Always wishing you Peace, Love, and Many Blessings~

And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

The reality of working from home



Despite what many people believe when it comes to working from home, it's just the same as working outside of your home if not more difficult.

Not only do you still have to deal with customers, co-workers or colleagues, but you also have to manage your home life and your time.

It is so tempting to sit around all day and watch TV or surf social media sites.  I also find that I have this constant feeling that you could be doing something around the house like organizing or cleaning something.  When in reality I need to be getting some work done!

The cool thing about being an entrepreneur is having luxury of setting your own hours.  Especially with my Independent Home Agent Job.  I set my availability for the week with my clients and they count on me to be available during those set times to take calls from their customers.  If I'm not available during those times, I run the risk of loosing my contract with my client.

It's one thing to set your schedule and it's another thing to work your schedule.  Just like with any job, there are times when I don't feel like getting up and sitting at my computer to take calls.  I'd rather act like I'm busy by posting positive quotes on Facebook and Instagram!  But that's where being a good steward over the things you've been blessed with comes in.

My husband always laughs at me because he knows how excited I was when I became a home agent and got my first cooperate client.  I just couldn't believe that I would be able to make a steady income and get paid every two weeks via direct deposit from home!

Now I look at my husband and I'm like, "Okay... I'll be back in a few hours.  I've got to go deal with these customers."  And I'm not saying it with a smile on my face.  I really appreciate how my husband reminds me of how blessed I am and how happy I was I got the position.

Even with my AVON Business...  It's amazing how you can wake up one day and your dreams have actually become your reality.

I used to hope and wish that I would be able to get online sales from customers via my online store.  I used to have visions of me checking my e-mail and having customers orders in my inbox on a regular basis.  And now those hopes, dreams and visions have come into fruition.

Just today I opened my e-mail and had two Avon orders waiting for me.  It's so funny how much more exciting the dream is compared to the reality.

The reality is, it's all work.  Picking up the phone to verify customer orders is work.  It's work to deal with any issues customers may have with products of services.  It's work to input customer orders and it's work to deliver those items and then to follow up!

On another note...

I remember how I used to spend so much time TRYING to get people to respond to my online advertising for some of my affiliate accounts and lately I have been having people contact ME asking about what I have to offer.  What a blessing!

And again... It is WORK to actually help the people that contact me get set up with their opportunity and to coach them as they work their opportunity so that they achieve the results they are looking to achieve.

What have I been doing to get this type of response?

Taking God at his word... He says...

New Living Translation (Matthew 6:33)
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.



So many things have been coming to me lately.  All I have to do is be a good steward of those things that he puts into my hands.

The moral of the story is, working from home is WORKING from home.  There's nothing all magical or amazing about it except for the fact that you can work in your house shoes and pajamas with your hair a mess and no makeup.  

Other than that, if you've got work to do, you've got to get it done or you too will be at home with no work.  Because you won't have any clients or customers if you're not doing what you've got to do to keep them.

Always wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and Many Blessings~

My very 1st day with Project Payday!


I signed up with Project Payday on the 14th of this month and I was so excited!  Then I found myself on youtube watching some of the reviews created by current affiliates.

Some of them were great, but one of them was not so great and it took me looking at that one negative review to get me very discouraged and not wanting to waste any time promoting their opportunity.

When I signed up I read that affiliates were not to promote their affiliate link via Instagram, which I was okay with considering the fact that the company was not getting very high conversion rates from people promoting this way.  The lead quality was very poor.

The affiliate or should I say former affiliate that did the negative review of Project Payday said that not only could you not promote your affiliate link via Intagram, but you also would not receive any compensation for leads generated through ANY mobile device.  Meaning you will not get paid for anyone filling out the opt in form from their cell phone, Ipad or tablet.

I immediately became extremely cautious of this company and was about to throw the opportunity out of the window!  I went right to my email and contacted Project Payday to see if this was true.  I let them know that I was very discouraged because more and more people are accessing the Internet from their mobile devices on a daily basis.  They shot me an email right back assuring me that the statement made about them not paying for leads by people on their mobile devices was NOT true.

Well you know I had to test it.  I sent my referral link to one of my friends that was interested in the Project Payday's opportunity and they filled out the opt-in form (from their cell phone) and when I checked my back office there it was!  I was paid $1.50 for that lead. **Check out the pic above** :)

I was very excited and I knew that I was on my way to getting lot's of money with Project Payday!

Victory is over you! God's faithful Love endures FOREVER! - PSALM 118:1-20

Psalm 118:1-20New Living Translation (NLT)

Psalm 118

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
    His faithful love endures forever.
Let all Israel repeat:
    “His faithful love endures forever.”
Let Aaron’s descendants, the priests, repeat:
    “His faithful love endures forever.”
Let all who fear the Lord repeat:
    “His faithful love endures forever.”
In my distress I prayed to the Lord,
    and the Lord answered me and set me free.
The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear.
    What can mere people do to me?
Yes, the Lord is for me; he will help me.
    I will look in triumph at those who hate me.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in people.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in princes.
10 Though hostile nations surrounded me,
    I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord.
11 Yes, they surrounded and attacked me,
    but I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord.
12 They swarmed around me like bees;
    they blazed against me like a crackling fire.
    But I destroyed them all with the authority of the Lord.
13 My enemies did their best to kill me,
    but the Lord rescued me.
14 The Lord is my strength and my song;
    he has given me victory.
15 Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly.
    The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things!
16 The strong right arm of the Lord is raised in triumph.
    The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things!
17 I will not die; instead, I will live
    to tell what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord has punished me severely,
    but he did not let me die.
19 Open for me the gates where the righteous enter,
    and I will go in and thank the Lord.
20 These gates lead to the presence of the Lord,
    and the godly enter there.

Let God Lead You In Business

 
What a day, what a day and it's still going.  I had the opportunity to make it onto a webinar with Mia Davies, a successful internet business entrepreneur and wonderful woman with a heart for God.

Her webinar was entitled, "Discover How To Turn Your Business Into The Mission Field God Intended It To Be."  I would have known nothing about this webinar had I not been on Facebook this morning between taking customer calls for some of my corporate clients.

I truly believe that God wanted me to be a part of her webinar because I have been praying for God to lead me in my online marketing as well as my network marketing business and that is exactly what Mia talked about today.

I also learned that In-N-Out Burger is a christian company, which I had not idea about.  I actually ate at In-N-Out Burger last night and posted the picture of my meal in Instagram.

  What I didn't add in the picture was he fact that In-N-Out Burger has bible verses written on their cups and burger wrappers.
 Who would have known!?

You have to know that I was so excited about the fact that the owners of this company are sharing the word of god while sharing the worlds greatest burgers, fries and shakes!  :)  Let this be inspiration for you as well to know that you can prosper and succeed in business while serving God too!

We do not have to leave God out of business in order to be successful or try to fit in.  He created us to stand out!

I am so excited to be led by God on a continuous basis.  He is directing my every step in all of my business endeavors and I am so grateful.

I'm not sure if or when Mia Davies will have another Live Webinar on the subject, but you can follow her on facebook HERE and visit her webiste http://miadavies.com

I'm off to do some coaching with my daughter to get her through some of her school lessons, but I want to encourage you all to continue to seek God in all you do, including your business endeavors.  He will lead you.  With him we have garaunteed success not only in business, but in life!

Much Love, Peace, and Prosperity to you and yours ALWAYS~

Mid-Day Motivatonal Video: The Ultimate Motivational Video - To The Glory! -

Article Share: 5 Reasons Why Online Entrepreneurs Need to Look Beyond the Numbers

 5 Reasons Why Online Entrepreneurs Need to Look Beyond the Numbers
 
                                                                       Kimanzi Constable

Contributor
Author, coach, blogger at KimanziConstable.com

When you start your entrepreneurial journey, you naturally want to build your numbers. Whether it’s your social media presence, your email list or just overall visibility, you associate a larger number with growth.
Larger numbers, however, aren’t as important as you may believe. Just because an entrepreneur has large numbers online doesn’t mean it has translated into income for their business. Here are five reasons why online entrepreneurs need to look beyond the numbers, and focus on what actually builds a business.

1. The numbers don’t indicate engagement

If you have a large social media presence, a large email list or a lot of people visiting your website but you have zero engagement, your business won’t grow. The best leads are word of mouth and those come through the engagement of your fans and followers. If your online presence is a ghost town, the large numbers won’t help your business.
Your goal should be to engage your audience. Get them involved in the conversation in a way that they want to tell others. Your community should be so engaged that your reach goes far beyond your numbers.

2. That personal connection is what creates life-long customers

Several years ago, there was a popular book that went on to become a New York Times best seller called The Four Hour Work Week. The book talked about automating your business to the point of being hands off. While the concept of this book is entertaining, and can work for a certain type of entrepreneur, the reality is that you have to establish that personal connection to create life-long customers, .
People buy from someone they know, like and trust. That will never happen communicating through a virtual assistant. A customer is a person. The more they feel a personal connection, the more they buy and tell others about your business. Marketing genius David Ogilvy said, “The consumer is not an idiot, she's your wife."
Make that personal connection.

3. The numbers can easily be manipulated

It’s pretty easy to buy a large following these days and too many entrepreneurs do. Everyday, on social media and through email, you see services offering fans for a price. The problem is that those aren’t real people. They will never buy from you.
Big numbers may look impressive but they won’t translate into income if they’re not real people. You have to ask yourself, are the numbers are more important than the income?

4. Add value and the numbers will naturally increase

As you add value and connect in a personal way with your audience, engagement will increase. With an increase in engagement will come more people sharing about your business. That will increase your numbers organically.
Great content, products and services create a loyal fan base that will spread the message all over the Internet. Over time, those numbers will increase in the best way possible because all the new fans and followers will already be engaged.

5. Building a business is not about ego

Who doesn’t like to look at their platform and see huge numbers? However, we are in business to generate income and make an impact in people’s life. This isn’t about us or the numbers.
While it’s great to have those large numbers, and it can be good social proof, your business can be successful with a small devoted following. You can create lifelong customers that do all of your advertising for you. We have to focus on business, not our ego or our emotions.
We own a business in a time when the economy is recovering. There are many other businesses that do what we do. The good news is some of the greatest businesses have been built in down times. To be one of those businesses, you have to stand out from the competition by building a devoted customer base. Focus on creating amazing content. Focus on creating irresistible products and services.
Focus on really connecting and engaging people. When you do, they will respond and your numbers will build. It’s too easy to get caught up in the comparison game. That game will derail your business from growing. Numbers are ok, but real people are better.

Bob Proctor - The Subconscious Mind and How to Program it

 PictureTo whom much is given, much is required.  We were all given the wonderful gift of a conscious!  We have to protect this precious mind of ours.

As children we really didn't have any control over what we saw and heard being that we were in the care of others.  Now that we are grown it is our responsibility to nurture our minds.

As we change our minds, we change our lives and the lives of those around us for the better.

What are you thinking about?  What are you putting into your mind on a daily basis?  Are you happy with the results of your thoughts which produce actions?  Are you happy with the results of your actions?  Just a thought...

Always wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and Many Blessings~

We need to be Praying for our government and police officers!



With all that's going on with our young black men being murdered by the police, are you praying for those who have authority over our children?




Homeschooling Moment: We're learning multiplication!



Youtube has become such a valuable resource for not only homeschooling parents, but even for parents with children that attend traditional school and for teachers!

We are now learning multiplication and my daughter was not very happy about it, at first!

Because of making it fun to learn with cool videos and songs along with my husband and I letting her know how proud we are of how quickly she picks up on it, she is loving it!

And because she is loving it, I am loving it!

Lyrical's teacher sent us these three videos to review for our online Live Lesson online with her classmates and she really enjoyed them.

Lyrical during her Live Lesson :)


Check them out and if you have a little one learning multiplication there are so many other videos on youtube to help make learning them fun!

Always wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and many blessings~

Mid-Week Bible Study Review: The Holy Spirit Is Not an IT. He is a PERSON!



I wanted to share my mid-week bible study lesson with you all. How often do you communicate with your helper, The Holy Spirit?

 John 14:26 But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.

Mark 16:17-18New Living Translation (NLT) 17 These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.[a] 18 They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”

Have a great rest of the week!

Be blessed!

Day 1: Feel Good Blogging Challenge!

   Alrighty!  I am taking the "Feel Good Blogging 7-Day Challenge", so over the next seven days I will be blogging!  Yaaaaay!

So let's get right into it.  I have 5 questions to answer and here's the first...

Who are you?

Or who am I?  Well, my name is Monique Bradford and I'm from Los Angeles, California.  I have the most wonderful husband and we've been married for over 11 years.  He is the CEO of TherezMore2C ENT.  And his work ethic is amazing!  He inspires me every single day.  We have a very talented, energetic, smart and beautiful 9 year old daughter named Lyrical that is home-schooled by yours truly.  My family is so important to me and I love to spend time with them so I schedule everything around my family.

I am always busy!  If I'm not cooking, I'm cleaning.  If I'm not giving Lyrical lessons, I'm working.  If I'm not working on my Avon Business, I'm taking Pizza orders from home for Pizza Hut (Fill out the form on the right if you want help doing the same thing). If I'm not working on my projects, I'm assisting my husband with his.  When I'm not doing any of these things I am in my bed taking a much needed nap!

I am at a point in my life where I am seeing that I need to start taking some kind of time for myself.  I need time to rejuvenate.  I am beginning to schedule things that make me feel good and relaxed so that I can give of myself to others.  I am 31 and my me time is becoming very important to me. (Just a side note :)

Why did I start blogging?

I have always enjoying writing.  All throughout my years in school I wrote poetry.  I also loved doing writing assignments.  Writing truly is freedom for me.  I feel like I can really express myself when writing.  It's just me and my pen and paper or in this case, me and my computer.

I really began to "blog" when myspace was popular and I gained a following.  I had people that would regularly read and comment on my poetry and thoughts and I fell in love with it.  It was only natural for me to start an actual blog.  

Who is my blog for?

That's a good question.  lol  I originally started my blog for me.  I just wanted to be free to express myself.  Being that I have an entrepreneurial spirit, (which I believe we all do, we've just been trained since birth to go out and get a job, but that's another story)  I decided to find a niche so that I could begin to monetize my blog.  The problem is I never really found a niche.  So then I became anti-niche.  I enjoy writing too much to just focus on one subject to write about.  My life is so rich with so many different things that I can't narrow it down.  I write about my life and I wear too many hats to focus on just one aspect of my life.

I do love to motivate people because I am such a motivated person and I truly believe that we all have a purpose and are gifted to do amazing things when we tap into that special place inside of us that brings it out.

I want my blog to be a place where people come to be entertained, motivated and inspired to live life without bounds.  I don't know everything there is to know about marriage, motherhood and entrepreneurship or life in general.  I have so much more to experience and learn, but what I do know and what I do learn I want to share with others.

What's something that I've been working on lately that I'm really proud of?

First off, I'm proud of myself for taking this Feel Good Blogging Challenge because I  feel like I'm finding my passion for writing again and actually having fun with my blog.

I'm also proud to be in a place in my life where I'm taking more time out for me.  I'm being much more honest with myself and others and just being and feeling much more genuine.  I'm getting rid of the ego and pride that would hold me back from really connecting with people.  I'm accepting and loving me for me rather than trying to be what I think other people want me to be.

What's the ONE MESSAGE that I hope people take away from my blog?

I want people to leave my blog feeling good about themselves.  I want them to leave knowing that they are not alone in whatever struggle they are in or whatever goal they are trying to achieve.  I want my readers to leave feeling loved, inspired and motivated to either continue or begin making positive changes in their lives.  I want them to know that they've got a friend in me.  WE ARE PEOPLE, WE ARE ONE!  :)

Prayer to GIVE good customer service!


I found this prayer online and I had to share it.  It is not always easy to deal with customers, but the bottom line is, our customers make up our bottom line!

Customer Care Prayer

Lord, I beg you, give me strength
With certain customers who talk at length.
Give me patience and the common sense
To listen while the customer vents.
Let me feel what they go through
So I can see their point of view.
Guide my words that what I say
Reaches them in a courteous way.

Open my ears that I may be led
To hear the message left unsaid.
Show me ways to build rapport
That lets them know we offer more.
Make me always show respect
And far exceed what they expect.

Remind me that service is but part of my role;
Customer care becomes the primary goal.
Help me to always live by this prayer
To prove to them I really care.
And at day's end, let me look back with pride
That I kept every customer satisfied.

Lord, help me remember that
When dealing with customers leaves me a wreck,
They are the ones who fund my pay check.

We are done with chicken nuggets!



My daughter has decided that the chicken nuggets she ate today would be her very last.  And I'm all for it!

The family and I decided to pay a trip to Wendy's today for lunch.  I love their chive potatoes and chili.  My daughter got the spicy chicken nuggets and fries and my hubby got his usual burger and fries.

As we were eating our meals my daughter was telling me about the chicken nuggets she had been given last year when she was in public school.  Which she hated by the way, she begged me to homeschool her this year like she has been since Kindergarden and I agreed.  As most of you already know.  :)

She said that when when she bit into the nuggets at school the meat was pink.  She said it was so gross that she wouldn't eat it.  She would eat everything else on the plate except the chicken nuggets and tell the teachers that she was finished.

She asked me what that pink stuff was.  And immediately I thought about the picture below that has been circulating on the internet for a long while now....



I'm sure most of you have seen it.  I was grossed out by it when I saw it.  It's the mechanically separated meat that has been chemically treated with chlorine and is supposed to be safe for human consumption.

I told her that I really didn't want to talk about it while we were eating, but we could research it together once we were done eating.

Before I could even get to my laptop after we were done my daughter had already googled "what is the pink stuff in the chicken nuggets at school" and had the pictures and videos pulled up on her desktop.

We started watching all kinds of videos about the chemicals in our food and needless to say, we were both grossed out and very concerned about our health.

Below are the videos we watch in order.  Brace yourself people.  Pretty gross....






Welp.  I'm sure you're pretty concerned yourself after watching these videos.  There are many more videos like this all over youtube if you want to do some more research yourself.

I have decided to make it my mission to make wise decisions when it comes to food for me and my family.  I will be going to Trader Joe's this week to do some shopping and will be making lot's of changes to our diets.  I'll be sure to share the journey with you all.

As always... Wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and Many Blessings!

What does the bible have to say about OVEREATING - Plus a prayer to overcome!



I am a woman who likes food.  I've been known you say (many times), "I love food."  I like to cook, but one of the reasons I believe I like to cook is because I like to eat!

I had to share todays devotional from bibleresources.org because it is all about food and it sheds some light on what God has to say about overindulging in all of the wonderful food he had blessed us with to eat.

If you are like me and are struggling with overeating this will speak to you as it did me.

Enjoy~

Always wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and Many Blessings...

God's Wisdom for Daily Living

Devotional Scripture

Proverbs 25:16 (KJV):
16 Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.

Proverbs 25:16 (AMP):
16 Have you found (pleasure sweet like) honey? Eat only as much as is sufficient for you, lest being filled with it, you vomit it.

Thought for the Day

God desires that we enjoy the good things that He created for us to eat (Psalm 103:5), but we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's guidance in all our ways, including eating. Honey and sweet things ought to be taken in moderation, lest overindulgence make us ill. The Bible teaches moderation and temperance in all things (Galatians 5:22-23). Overindulgence opens the door to gluttony, which has become one of the most widespread sins in Western culture and America. Food is the god of millions. Obesity is now a common problem. To maintain God's blessings, we must obey His Word regarding both spiritual and physical matters. "Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand" (Philippians 4:5).
The world has set the standard when it comes to eating, rather than the Word of God. Here is another area where we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's guidance. First, we need to make sure that we are receiving proper spiritual food; however, the Lord is also emphasizing to His people that they need to make changes in their physical diets and receive the proper natural foods. Most of God's people have experienced His healing in their bodies, but one problem that seems to be prevalent is that after receiving healing, the devil comes back to rob them of God's gift of healing. However, if we exercise our faith and rebuke the enemy in the name of Jesus, he will flee. If you have done this and are still experiencing illness, perhaps the problem is one of maintaining the gift God has given you. By this I mean we must not only obey and keep spiritual laws, but also we must keep physical laws if we expect to walk in God's blessings.
Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We are each a caretaker of our body, but many of us do not honor the God of glory who lives within us. Rather than keep His temple in good shape, we neglect it and fill it with garbage foods. We ought to assess our eating habits to bring them in line with Biblical guidelines. Many are tired and sick because a large part of their diet consists of highly-refined, nutritionally-dead foods. A good rule is to eat the "living foods" God created: fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, legumes and dairy. God's guidelines for meats are given inLeviticus 11. In ourselves, we may not be able to overcome old eating habits, but through prayer and with His help, we can (Philippians 4:13). If we seek God on this important subject, He will direct us to a solution. Ultimately, it is faith and obedience to God that gives us victory.
While it is good to emphasize proper eating and physical exercise, we must beware of extremes. Our spiritual health should always be given top priority, since it determines the quality of our lives on earth and in eternity (1 Timothy 4:8). Many people have become unbalanced by putting too much emphasis on the physical man, while neglecting the spiritual man. We must not neglect our physical health, but we should avoid becoming overly concerned about it and allowing it to absorb too much of our time. God desires that we learn self-discipline and temperance in all things. I appreciate a book that I read years ago on dieting: More of Jesus, Less of Me. Submitting to Christ's Lordship is the key to a proper balance between the care of our spiritual man and physical bodies. We should make Jesus "Lord of the Fork."

Prayer Devotional for the Day

Dear heavenly Father, I am thankful for all of the good foods that You created for our pleasure. They have been a blessing and I have enjoyed them. Lord, help me not to over-indulge and put too much emphasis on food. Give me a desire to eat things that are good for me and deliver me from those things that are not healthy for me. Since You created our bodies, I trust Your wisdom to know what things are best for me to eat. Forgive me for any lust for food, and may I eat those things that will cause me to have a healthy body so that I can serve You without illness and lack of energy. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
