2016 Challenge: Comfort In Knowing

Comfort in knowing??? …You may ask. 

      Are you like me- the older you get the harder it is to be comfortable on all kinds of levels?

We start to feel pain in areas that we had no idea could feel pain. I find it funny too that we would rather not “feel” anything so that we at least stay comfortable in the “blah” seasons of our lives.


Why not be completely comfortable in KNOWING???


I didn’t know what today would look like,but iI was happy IN that
I’m not saying knowing what the future has in store, or knowing (uhhum…. Control freaks this is for y’all) the next move. 

Rather the comfortable in knowing that God isn’t asking you to have it all figured out.

   This is another lesson being taught to me. When I TRULY surrender to His will- marvelous things happen! Things so surreal I can’t help but think “wow! that’s not a Sam thing – that’s a God thing!”.

   One of the biggest confirmations came in the form of a program I put together called: M.A.N.Y (Make Any Network Yours!) this has been brewing in my head and on my heart for over three years! 

You are allowed to be a dreamer and doer

    “What the heck is wrong with you procrastinator” you may think

It wasn’t procrastination but it was me not allowing myself to be comforted in knowing if I placed it out into my great world of Phoenix that it would be successful! 

Today was launch day! The venue was provided by a dear friend, the food while casual from Chick-Fil-A was tasty, and the people who came… OHHHHH THE PEOPLE WHO CAME WERE AMAZING! Here I am teaching a class about my experience on networking and I couldn’t help but feel taken back that these ladies were all investing in who they want to be. They were and are taking steps that I know without doubt we will look forward and see them being some pretty major players in the marketplace. 


Learning Ladies Alert!
    They are destined for success and I get to enjoy part of that journey simply because I put M.A.N.Y together and asked for help where I needed and in return received more confirmation that when I allow myself to just take in the scenery supercagifragilistic things are happening around me!!! 
   What is the hangnail that won’t let you find comfort right now? It refuses to let your mind surrender control? 

    Ask that instead of feeling weighed down by it that instead you are filled with comfort and deep desire to push beyond it and break the barrier it has on you. 

    Know that He is completely with you. His hands are wrapped so tight around you there “ain’t ” no way you will fall.

Let’s really let that sink in. The comfort in KNOWING without doubt you -are-not-alone.
Sending hugs,


Pretty pens for this chick!

Mood today: Anxiety but being prayerful 

Inspirational tune: Jordan Feliz “Down to the River”
    I knew I was growing up a few years ago when I found office supplies to be cool and found great pleasure when I would find a pen that wrote like it was a small piece of heaven. 

     Do you know what I’m talking about? 

     The kind of pen that glides and has the perfect ink stroke without gaps so that you get THE precise “look” you want.

   When working towards my faith dedication this year it has been important for me personally to add color to all I touch. And because I am in constant contact with paperwork, bills, my Powersheets by Lara Casey and my Simplified Planner by Emily Ley along with meetings that require notes… 


   Well let’s just say I require a pretty pen bag for all my ink! 

   Sometimes a colored pen is all it takes to make the first step towards progress. 

    A colorful pen can make a plain white sheet of paper bold and bright! A colorful pen inspires you to doodle or write words or phrases just so you can “use your pen”.

   It’s a writing utensil that becomes almost a part of who you are and where you are going because if it wasn’t then why would you be worried to lose it or let someone borrow it knowing it may get legs ?
     I encourage you to find some colorful pens and highlighters- 

and YES USE THEM with all you do writing wise. 

   Open your BiblesUSE THEM

   Open your journal-USE THEM

   Open a book-USE THEM

   Open your Powersheets-

                  USE  THEM


I see color I see opoortunity!
    Now once you do, go back and flip through – 

     the color will force you to stop and read because it will catch not only your eyes but your mind. 

   We all need inspiration to learn, so why not do it cheerfully and bright? 

   This year on our great journey let’s do it in style shall we…


Love y’all,
