I grew up in a small town in northern Minnesota, population 66. My father worked for the local lumber yard and my mother owned the local beauty shop. Because both my parents worked long hours, I had to learn to be strong and independent at a young age.
As I grew older, I met the man of my dreams, Tim. We got married and eventually had 2 wonderful boys. My life was complete, so I thought. My husband was a school teacher and I had started selling Jewelry working from home so I could be with the boys. In 5 yrs I worked my way up to a VP position with over 400 women selling under me, I was putting in 60 to 80 hours a week and still not getting paid what I was worth, not to mention I didn’t have any time with my kids like I had originally planned.
Although we enjoyed our jobs, we were tired. How much longer could we keep burning the candle at both ends and still not really move ahead? That’s when the Live Well Journey came in to our lives. I’m so grateful I had a look. It really made sense and since joining it has changed our lives completely and continues to every day.
When our youngest was five my husband said, "I think we should go for that girl!!!” What??? So 12 months later came boy number 3 (ahhhh!), I said 3 strikes and your out ... lol. I will get my girl. Being a women of God I started praying because he was not on the same page as me, only God could change his mind. Fortunately as a result of us taking control and changing the game for our lives, we actually had the money and the time to have the life we always dreamt of. Five years later, we brought home our 18 month old Chinese Daughter. (God is so good!)
I’m not perfect but I am forgiven. I certainly don’t have all the answers, but with persistent prayer and an open spirit I strive to make the right decisions in all areas of my life. I know I have God given talents to help people who feel stuck and want to change the game for themselves.
