Welcome to my Spark Page. Hi my name is Whitney and this is where my Spark journey begins.

In July 2008, I read a book called "The Richest Man Who Ever Lived". I have since passed it on and cannot recall the authors name. It was a book on how to achieve financial success( and so much more). The author tells of his journey through the Book of Proverbs and applying Solomon's wisdom to his own life.

Welcome to my Spark Page. Hi my name is Whitney and this is where my Spark journey begins.

In July 2008, I read a book called "The Richest Man Who Ever Lived". I have since passed it on and cannot recall the authors name. It was a book on how to achieve financial success( and so much more). The author tells of his journey through the Book of Proverbs and applying Solomon's wisdom to his own life. He shares the importance of goal setting in all areas of your life. Well, this book inspired me to take the first steps...write down what you want in life.

_______________________________________

So I bought a notebook and some loose leaf paper and wrote down a goal on each sheet.

1. To have a closer relationship with my Father.
2. Get our financial house in order.
3. Be the Excellent Wife of Proverbs 31.
4. Be a better friend, sister, daughter and
daughter-in-law
5. Lose weight and get healthy
6. Sell the jewelry I make
7. Own our own house

That is far as I got with the actual goal setting steps. I just left it in the Lord's hands, which is not a bad place to keep your dreams.

_______________________________________

My Father always amazes me. Even when I do not specifically ask Him, I see His wonderful hand working.
He quietly began working in my life...changing my husband's job, releasing me from mine, leading me to wonderful study on the internet of the Excellent Wife and now leading me to Sparks People.

_______________________________________

Here I have begun to learn so much about achieving your goals and the actual steps to get there. I found a worksheet here reading this article www.sparkpeople.com/system/index.asp

I AM TRULY STOKED. PRITYTXGIRL let me steal a wonderful poem from her page which I believe will be my new mantra for life.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? . . . We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us." --Marianne Williamson

How beautifully true.

Hey - Just stopping by to see how you are doing? Any date yet
for quitting smoking? If the group (DMNS) is overwhelming, just
let me know and I will elimate you from the membership. I
thought it would be of help to you but ?? as I haven't seen you
post anything.

Let me know. BTW - we have some new threads at Kindred
Spirits - a book club just starting up Feburary 1st. Thought
you might be interested.

Take care and hope to hear from you soon. Sunny

Just popping by to say hi. How's bootcamp going? I'm loving it. I haven't seen much of a change in the scale but I still love the way I feel after doing the workouts.

Hi!
I'm not sure how I ended up on your page but I have become addicted to the great inspirational people here on SP!

You have some really great goals and I know you will do well with these things to look forward to. I don't make jewellery but I LOVE the wearing of it. Would like to see your work sometime.

Best!
