First Post

So I have thought and pondered for a long time about jumping into the blogging world.  God has tapped me several times and prompted me.  I am scared that if I don’t act on it now; he’s gonna get a 2×4 to get my attention.  Does God do that in your life?  Gently prod or prompt you towards open doors and if you resist the prompting or prodding gets a little more intentional and in your face.  Not an in your face like no definition of personal space, but in your face the way only God can do.

Last night I shared with Tator, (that’s Mark my husband) that I was pretty sure I was going to launch into blogging.  He shook his head and said, “Great, more of my life to be shared.”  He didn’t tell me no, like that would have stopped me!  It is kind of a joke in the  Nissan of Chesapeake Parks and Service department that the fellas there who are my facebook friends know more about Tator’s life than Tator.

This past year has been an amazing journey.  I changed careers after 15 years.  Jumped from comfortable comfort zone to a whole new world.  Both careers are in the direct sales industry.  However my leaving my first gig after 15 years was scary and very emotional for me. I learned a lot along the way, tough adult lessons.   I was and am super excited for all that the new direct sales journey will take me.  I was scared.  I stopped teaching Mama how to keep the family happy around the dinner table and started helping Mama to be happy. That my friends is VERY rewarding.

Over the last year, I have grown in many ways, not just my waistline! My relationship with God has become front and center in my life.  I have been more obedient to the doors God is opening for me.  I am serving others more, spreading cheer where I can, and going where God sends me.  Sometimes being obedient to God is scary.

Well I feel like I have been all over the place here.  I tend to write like I think.  Those who know me will get that as they read my posts.

So there it is in a nutshell, I’m following God and walking through the doors he opens for me.  Along the way, I will share moments from the Ponderosa.

  1. Hi Elizabeth,it’s Nita ,Brooke’s aunt. It’s been a few years off of Facebook,but I’m back and it was great to see you on here. You are still such a pretty lady with a winner smile. I look forward to reading your blog now. It pleases me to know you are trying to follow what God’s desire for your life is. We all need to strive to do that. God Bless you and your family!!


  2. There are parts of your post I could have written. My goal for this year is different than any other year. It’s not about business, not about weight, not about “stuff” …..It’s shifting my actions, thoughts and beliefs from being a fan to a Follower of God. I LOVE Numerology and more I study it the more right on it is….that said my numbers show I have a very strong need for spiritual health. It feels like God is hitting me with that 2×4…lol
    I’d love to follow your blog. May God bless you in 2017.
