Stop Being a Lawnmower Mom

Stop Being a Lawnmower Mom

by Coach Debbie   I used to teach fourth grade.  I love that age so much!  They’re independent yet not hormonal.  At the start of every school year we held an Open House where students and parents came to the classroom to meet me and get a vibe of how the year would be structured.  You could always tell that kids were nervous (and so was I).   I’d stand at the door to greet families and introduce myself and extend my arm to shake hands with each member of the family.  Here's what bothered me.  Immensely.  Mom or Dad...

Have you ever made a hard decision in your life that only God could have orchestrated? Something that maybe you fought for YEARS or decades and then one day you finally said a hearty and willing YES?

Are your goals SMART?

The beginning of the year has arrived and you’re READY to make some changes. You’re ambitious and excited to improve those areas that you feel are lacking and energized by the possibilities. We are cheering you on all the way! Before you get started, let’s talk about SMART goal setting. Why? Because if we aren’t SMART about our goals then we’ll end up defeated and we quit and then it’s a little tougher to get started again. It’s a vicious cycle and awareness is key. So what exactly is a SMART goal?  Now let’s use an example for clarity. Let’s...
