Transformed: My Daughter’s Journey

All The Shoes I Wear

In A Word: Inspiring

It took 6 years after having my son for my memory to fade enough to have my daughter. 23 hrs of  labor is a strong deterrent.  My children were complete opposites. My son who was small, struggled to gain weight.  My daughter struggled with hers.

She was beautiful, smart, strong, a razor sharp wit and full of hilarity. She didn’t let her weight stop her from achieving whatever she dreamed.

By the age of 12, she could bench press 250 and she wanted to play football like her brother before her. She was one of the first girls to ever play boys football, having tried out, won her position as a starter on both offense and defense. She was also the first female to ever attend Razorback Football Camp at the university of Arkansas, Fayetteville at the insistance of famous coach, Houston Nutt who flew his…

Tuscan Steak

A Jeanne in the Kitchen

After our wonderful Caribbean vacation, where we ate mostly seafood, we came back really wanting and craving steak.   Like with everything else I cook, I like to make things in a variety of ways to keep our meals fun and exciting, so I am always coming with new twists to old classics.

I used a nice flank steak that I marinated with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, paprika and Worcestershire sauce.  I let it marinate for about 4 hours before grilling it up.  To me, the best way to eat a steak is medium rare.  That’s when it is really juicy and tender and all the flavors just really pop.  But, as I always say, cook it how you like it.

To make my steak Tuscan style, I used fresh baby spinach, tomatoes, garlic, onions, mushrooms and butter beans.  Normally I use the smaller cannellini beans, but I accidentally picked…

What Is Mass Marketing And Is It Right For You?

IMwithJay

A couple of months ago I was introduced to a totally new concept…

…Mass Marketing.

What is Mass Marketing?

Maybe the simplest analogy is this…

You can fish with a net, or you can fish with a pole. In both cases you will catch fish, but with the net you will catch a ton more fish with a lot less effort!

The goal of most SEOs/Marketers is to create a perfectly optimized page with the perfect backlink profile so that their page will rank number 1 for a keyword phrase that gets 10,000 visitors per month.

They fight to get that ranking, then they fight to keep that ranking.

And when they lose it (which they most certainly will), they will repeat the cycle to try and get it again.

With mass marketing the “goal is volume, not perfection”.

Mass marketers “understand that landing 10,000 longtail listings that each…

Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts

The Pink Herald's Blog

In my goal to be a good, ok, better vegan, I am trying vegetables and foods I never thought I would eat.  On the list of intimidating foods I don’t typically eat are brussel sprouts.

I made them a couple weeks ago in the oven.  They were ok.  Nothing to write home (or on a blog) about.

When I was at church this past week, someone mentioned making them in the air fryer.  Now why didn’t I think of that?  I use the air fryer for almost everything!

As it would happen, I purchased another bag of brussel sprouts a few days ago.  Their health benefits outweigh my desire to forego eating them.  I decided to give it a go in my air fryer.

I quartered the large pieces and halved the tiny ones.  I used a tiny bit of olive oil (maybe two teaspoons – max).  A sprinkle of…

Teens and Suicide Prevention

Peace from Panic

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) says each year, more than 41,000 people die by suicide.

teens in high school

Last week I went to a local high school to talk with students about mental health. I’m a presenter for NAMI’s in-school program, “Ending the Silence.”

My co-presenter and I spoke to two classes, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. When our first presentation ended, we noticed the teens looked almost stunned. During the question and answer period, no one wanted to say a word. It took some gentle nudging for them to ask us anything.

Then we thought about it… These were incoming freshmen, brand new to high school. Classes started two weeks before. They probably weren’t comfortable yet with their teacher, let alone their classmates.

And they’d just sat through an hour of us talking about a subject that isn’t usually spoken about…

Trust God when it doesn’t make sense

Issues from the Heart

Image result for trust God when it doesn't make sense

Life has a way of screaming emphatically to us that it does not make sense to trust God. As believers, we often think that as we make a request to God, that instantaneously our request should be granted.  The fact that our prayers are seemingly not answered in the blink of an eye can lead to frustration and further resulting is a skewed concept of who God is.  This is because we make a request for help in what we would consider a bad situation and instead of receiving the help needed from God, He allows the circumstances to get even worse. In fact, our most severe problems become outright impossible to be resolved. As such, our mind begins to formulate questions regarding God’s location, His character, His nature, and sometimes even His very existence. We start to wonder whether or not the promises of God is true. We deliberate…
