Brave Lesson 3: Connect the Dots Backwards
Life's biggest moments typically follow the most stressful ones. This podcast will help you create a plan to rebuild your life after a plot twist. Getting Your Brave On to get the life you want happens in small steps.  Don't beat yourself up!  If you have started and stop this same goal multiple times it's okay!  You are normal!  The reason why we get distracted and fail at goals is because we get overwhelmed at the end result.  It seems impossible so we give up. Instead, we are going to work backwards.  Success happens when we focus on one step at a time to get to the goal! Today, get out a sheet of paper, or maybe page 3 in your journal and write your goal and your date at the top. We can use mine as an example,

Brave Lesson 2: Circle a Date
 Do you feel like your life has been on pause?  Are you stagnant, but deep inside you want to burst out into a new life?  Making this ONE simple decision today, is a giant step closer to living your dream life. "Let's circle August 1st" -she said.  My best friend Patty in Virginia challenged me to do that when I was going through my divorce.  I became a single mother suddenly, when my ex husband came home one night from a business trip to Brazil and announced he was leaving the family.  I was living in this tortuous limbo land of having no clue what my future would look like. This is how I created a new life, and how I can teach you how to create a life you love too!  Click here to support Debbie in her goals!

Life lessons from a legend. It's a special Mother's Day edition with Amy Grant!

The life of a full time single mom feels like a constant struggle, like a track full of hurdles that you have to complete every day, and you start the race already tired.

The Single Mom & Valentine's Day
Maybe your Valentine's day is full of red roses and boxes of chocolate. Or maybe it's full of disappointment and apathy. If this is the case, I'd like to try to change your attitude about it. Here's a Valentine that might help. It's a love letter to you from God. Every line is a verse from the bible about how much God loves you. If it encourages you, maybe you could also share with others, letting them know about the ultimate love of God. It's a never-ending, never-stopping, unbreakable, always and forever love of God.
