Hello!
My name is Susan and I'm a Focus-on-Home Mom.
As a Christian, Wife, Mother, Home Educator and Woman I want to help change the world, for the better.
I want to teach people to value Christ and what He has done for us.
I want to teach people to value Life and protect the little ones.
I want to teach people to value our United States Constitution and to understand that We the People rule, NOT those politicians in DC.
I want to teach people that Life came from a Creator, not Evolution, for all decisions in life or based on what you believe about this.
I want to teach people to value Holy Scripture, because that teaches us to be a moral, grateful people.
I want to teach people to Hope.
For one candle lit, eliminates darkness.

To My Younger Self
You're a special creation
created by God
Be glad of who you are
no matter what bod
Make a habit of health
Make a habit of fit
Always keep going
Don't ever quit
Don't obsess over Self
Think more about Others
Be sure to thank Dad
Be sure to thank Mother
Cherish old friends
Embrace all friends new
Remember your best friend
will always be you!
Dream up some Dreams
Find your gift within Self
Work on new skills
Don't sit back on a shelf
Move forward each day
Each day live in Faith
Each day live for Christ
and you'll do just great!

Susan A. M. 2015

Here are a couple of spark teams I began:
1. The Sandwich Generation
(for people balancing parenting children with caring for aging parents) It's private so if you are interested let me know and I'll send you an invitation!
2. Pro-Life Sparkers, for those of us who cherish Life. This is a brand new team so help me get it up and running! :)


A very wise and moving speech for these discordant times:

Fitness Minutes: 24,900

My Goals:
My goals are
to wisely balance my day as a woman, Christian, wife, mother, daughter, sibling, friend.
They are all aspects of being Me. And I am going to be a healthy Me.


My Program:
My goals will be changing as I grow in this area. For now, I will commit to Sparking at least once a day, maybe skipping Sundays. Spark, to put it plainly, SPARKS me, and it is my springboard towards every other little thing I should be doing:
Eat better. Get moving. Be positive.
10/8/15 Have to set SMART goals today: I'm still going to keep it basic.
Specific: I will commit to w/o and choosing foods wisely.
Measurable: I will track every day so I can see how many days I have kept to my goal.
Attainable: At least 10 min. of cardio and a toning exercise 6 days per week.
Realistic: I will not require more of myself than I can reasonably stick to.
Timely: I will not OVER do it, I will not UNDER do it. I will pace myself and not feel in a rush.

I made a decision.
I'm not going to say, "I've lost (number) pounds".
Because I don't want the chance of FINDING those pounds again.
I'm going to begin saying,
"I've BURNED off (number) pounds."



Personal Information:
When I first began Spark I lived in an 1100 sq foot home with 11 people. Since then we have moved into an older larger home which we are having fun fixing up. We can run laps in this place. lol.
I burn calories just walking from the bedroom, through the house to the kitchen! My spark picture is one from our earlier house. Our new house just happens to have a Window Seat on the staircase landing. Way Cool! :)


Other Information:
I'm a book lover! An ideal quiet time would include a Window Seat, some fluffy pillows (at least 3 ), a fleece blanket, or Grandma's quilt, a few favorite books to choose from, some snacks (preferrably not healthy, sorry, but...TRUTH! Let you know when that changes!) and a big hot chocolate! Oh and don't forget the Quiet! Basically, I lean toward old fashioned stories.
Favorite author: Janette Oke...Love Comes Softly series. And yeah, all the rest of hers also.
Anne of Green Gables books and movies.
Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensiblity, Emma . Etc. I'll think of more later!

    emoticon Susan, I loved your comment on my blog today, really made me laugh. Yep, I streaked down the hallway today, pushing my walker! Of course I was fully clothed. emoticon

    This streak will give me the incentive to be consistent with walking the hallways. I'll put how I'm doing in blogs.

    Thanks again, I appreciate it that you read my blogs and love the funny comments.

    Okay, Lady. You've got me! So, what's the deal with the word ... xanthuxor? I have found nothing. I see Xanthus Horse. But, xanthuxor? No.

    I'm in chuckle mode now. My husband even wanted to know what was up with me.

    I, too, am thankful you are NOT xanthuxor! This made me laugh uncontrollably which was good because it lifted my spirits. Thanks!

    Hi-saw your comment on my feed about that video of Dr. Mercola and I don't hardly squat with my knees at all (bad knees) and I still get the benefits of it. Makes your arms sore at first though! I have my husband doing it now! We say" Time to do the Mercola"! It really makes you feel rejuvenated! I only do 10, not 20 like he does. Give it a try! emoticon emoticon
