Does the saying "Let Go and Let God" mean this to you?

You don’t hear me use the word "God" often because I usually say “The Universe.” Today I have to say “God” because that’s who gave me this message to you.
Today, I am announcing what we are referring to as a “Presidential Pause.” In this blog post I will explain what our Presidential Pause is, why we are taking it, and what we hope to accomplish by doing it.
When you hear the words “Let go and let God,” what do you think about? I think about surrendering to the calling. I think about allowing rather than controlling. I think about how much better God’s plan is then my plan. I also think about how easy it will be if I let my higher power guide me.
You may use the word God often. You may even use the phrase “Let Go and Let God.” If you don’t use the phrase, you might start after I explain why it is so important to me now.

First, I want to explain what we...

Uncategorized Jan 09, 2019

There are 5-aspects of holistic health. They all work together and the more you pay attention to them, the easier they become. People are programmed to believe that they do not control their health. They believe that the body is going to do whatever it wants to do.

Happiness misconception

Have you ever felt like everyone else had the key to happiness except you? That’s because social media is lying to you, making you feel left out.

Medieval Times Review Atlanta

M’Lords and M’Ladies,

Prepare to be informed and maybe even entertained as I deliver you my Medieval Times Review. During my visit to the castle the chancellor announced several guest celebrating different things.

It was an honor to join the queen on my day of birth to choose the strongest knight. The excitement...
