KEYS101: Time. Use your time in the best way you can” Colossians 4:5

Time is our most precious resource. It’s far more important than money. We can get more money, but you can’t get more time. We only have a certain amount allotted to us in this life. We can’t make time, we can’t borrow time, we can’t save time, we can’t extend time. We can only use it. We all have the same amount of time every week: 168 hours. If we don’t learn to manage our time well, we cannot manage anything else in our life, because our time is our life.

God is watching to see how we manage our time on this earth to determine what he’s going to have us do in eternity. He’s giving us a test, because our life on Earth is preparation for eternity. One of Satan’s strategies is to get us so busy doing unimportant things that we don’t have time for the important things in life, and we don’t spend any time preparing for eternity. Satan doesn’t have to get us to sin. If he can’t get us to be bad, he’ll just get us to be busy.

I’m working on this everyday.

Prioritizing. And, simplifying.

I need to simplify my life and eliminate distractions, so God can use me. Don’t try to do it all. Do what matters most!

Peace & Blessings,

Have you noticed that the moment you establish a goal in your life, you start hearing people say, “Who do you think you are?” or “It can’t be done” or “Forget about it”?

The antidote to the voices of doubt is to instead listen to the voice of God. Just imagine all the critics that were in Noah’s life. “That guy Noah thinks God speaks to him, but he’s just messing up all of our property values by building that ark in his front yard.”

It’s said that Noah listened to God. He heard God’s warning that the world was going to be destroyed. He believed what he had not yet seen. Talk about faith — being certain of something we don’t see. Ya’ll don’t hear me.

So Noah didn’t turn back on the vision God had given him. Instead, he built the ark. Screw the na’sayers!

You are going to have a goal for your life, and some people may think it’s pretty crazy. But you’ve got to stay focused on what you know through God. Then, you’ve got to go build your ark!

Peace and Blessing,



Out with the “old” in with the “new”


Good Friday life junkies,

KEYS101:If you want to have lasting change in your life, you have to start with your body, and that includes changing the way you think so that what you let into your mind and the things you think about honor and acknowledge a power higher than you.

“Put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and … put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness”. Ephesians 4:22-24

Notice that there’s a putting off and a putting on. Your health really comes down to stopping some stuff you need to stop doing and starting some stuff you need to start doing. Stop putting negative, hurtful things in your body, and start putting in things that edify.

Stop putting negative, hurtful things into your mind, and start watching and listening to things that edify and make you whole. In the renewal of your mind, you’ve got to put off before you can put on.

Let’s say you go shopping (I thought this was perfect) to look for a new pair of jeans. You find them and take them into one of those tight changing rooms. If you’re wearing a pair of jeans already, you don’t go in there and put the new jeans on over your old jeans. That would be stupid, because you’re not going to know if they fit. It makes sense to take off the old ones before you put on the new ones.

You’ve got to take off the old before you can put on the new. That’s true spiritually and emotionally and mentally.

I’m working on this myself. We all are “works in progress”! And, if not start now. Spring is a time of “REBIRTH”….

Good day Life Junkies.

Keys101: Giving from my heart is a selfless act.

You earn a living by what you make, but you earn the respect and gratitude of others and a legacy and reputation by what you give.

Who are the people in your life you’re most grateful for? They’re the people who’ve invested time, money, energy, and patience in you. The people you’re most grateful for are the people who’ve given the most to you.

The most giving people are the most appreciated people in most cases-

Is anybody grateful for your generosity? How many people can you think of who would say about you, “That person is so loving and giving; they have been so generous with me”?

There is no better day than today to thank the people who have been generous to you. You can thank them by calling them or writing a note and letting them know how they specifically invested in you and what it has meant in your life. Then, use those people as your model for how to give of yourself and be generous with others.

Lets learn to be considerate and kind to all; even our “frienimes”!







Hey life junkies! I like to plan. I’m a planner and a planter.

KEYS101: Everything starts as a seed. That’s the first law of the harvest.

Every achievement started as a dream seed. America started as an idea seed of life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Your life started as a seed — when your father’s seed was connected with your mother’s egg, your life began. Literally everything that’s living on planet Earth came from a seed.

A seed is anything valuable that you give away. When you give away praise, there’s value to that. When you give away good advice, there’s value to that. When you give away your time, there’s value to that. When you give away your money, there’s value to that. When you share your experience to help other people, there’s value to that. When you give your love away, there’s great value to that.

It all starts as a seed, whether it’s your time, money, appreciation, wisdom, or energy.

Your words can also be seeds that you plant in people’s minds. They grow, and they bear fruit. So you need to choose your words wisely, especially when you’re talking with people that you love, like your children, your husband, your wife, and your friends.

Let me ask you this: What kind of seeds are you planting in your relationships? Are you planting seeds of trust, or are your planting seeds of distrust? Are you planting seeds of kindness, or are you planting seeds of crankiness? Are you planting seeds that build up, or are you planting seeds that tear down?

Remember: You will reap whatever you sow.
