This is a photo of my youngest at the computer and my youngest grandchild (my oldest daughter’s 3rd child) outside on our picnic table relaxing. That’s my cup of coffee there, I love having my coffee in the morning.
My children and son-in-laws are all building a network marketing business together with me. We are a family of network marketers.
But for us, my family and I, we serve the LORD first and foremost.
With prayer and supplication and requests for wisdom and guidance we conduct our network marketing business. And we are teaching our little ones the importance of putting God first in every part of our life.
I didn’t become a Christian until about 7 years ago. Even after I made the decision to be a Christian, my life didn’t become perfect. I was a chaotic mess and continued to be for years. It wasn’t until about 3 years ago, when I was first hospitalized that I really, really started to study the word of God and his place in my life.
This is what happened to me in the hospital. I believed in God, in Jesus as my LORD and Saviour but wasn’t being obedient like I should have been. I don’t mean I was going out committing all kinds of sins but I continued to think the way I always did which continued to cause chaos in my life. And my way of thinking was a sin and was being disobedient to God.
This is what shook me. As I was laying on my hospital bed, sleeping, I suddenly jumped up and 2 black forms swirled around my room and I yelled out “who’s there!!!”
I thought it was the staff pulling the curtains but there was no one there. Shaken, I lay back down and began to pray and Thank God because I know at that moment, 2 very dark forces that were inside of me were kicked out by God!
When I cam home, I started to study the scriptures in the Bible but in 4 months I was back at the hospital again!
This time they discovered a blood clot in my lungs and my heart was functioning at 15%! I stayed in the hospital for 3 weeks while they worked at getting water out of my lungs, getting the blood clot out and strengthening my heart.
I was no longer able to work. What I did for a living is I made sea glass and shell jewelry and would sell it at our local swap meet and at different craft fairs.
I was on a heavy medication schedule, my body was always aching and it drained me of my energy so much so that all I did was lay down and sleep. I missed having my grandchildren with me so much!
What happened is my youngest daughter had to work, she was happy about it but I wasn’t. My oldest daughter got her a job where she worked and until today they both work there and I’m still not working.
I chose to do a network marketing business. A dream I’ve had since my oldest was 4 years old, she’s now 30 years old with 3 children of her own and one on the way, is to achieve the top level in a network marketing business.
My daughters were already in a network marketing business and I was supposed to join them but when I really prayed I determined that:
- if I joined a network marketing business it would have to be in the health field so I could take the products and see improvement in my health.
- that God be in this network marketing company.
They agreed and I started looking. The name that came to me was Brig Hart. I googled him to see what he was doing. I picked him because he was my upline with a network marketing company I was an independent distributor with when my oldest was 4 years old. So that was 26 years ago.
Well come to find out Brig was with a health company and so we talked on the phone a couple of times and we ordered the products and to my complete joy, the products worked wonders for me! I Love them!
But most important for me was that Brig did everything through our Father.
Like I said in the beginning of this post, God is always, always, always, FIRST!
Now, my children didn’t grow up as Christians either and they’re having their own struggles obeying God but they are in a much better position then I was at their age.
My father was an atheist and an abuser of all types. Rocky, chaotic, quicksand foundation is what I had.
My children’s lives were not that bad but not having God didn’t make life easy.
Here’s the thing, they’re open, so open to learning God’s Word which we know, know, know is a lamp on our fight and a light on our path.
Every Tuesday we have family prayer night where we share Bible Scriptures with each other, pray, and share food. It is powerful!
We also have Prayer Business Meetings on Sundays.
My grandchildren? They will be so much better off because they’re being exposed as babies to Bible Scripture. In fact, the other day I was teaching my 3 year old granddaughter (the one in the photo) Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
So here’s how it went:
Me: This is the day
Rosalee: This is a day
Me: the LORD has made
Rosalee: the LOD a may
Me: let us rejoice
Rosalee: an gamma we have “lettuce” yea?
Oh my heart!!!
I’m teaching them to say grace before eating. I teach my oldest grandson to read and write using Biblc Scripture. He catches on fast.
I pray they internalize and make God’s word their LIFE!
For me, having God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in my life has cleared up a lot of the chaos in my life. I’m able to balance having my grandchildren, doing what I need to do around the house, and working on my network marketing business. This was not possible for me in the past. I was obsessive and would be so hell bent on building my network marketing business that I would neglect everything, even my children.
This was because of fear, I had to make money to care for them and in my mind, my chaotic mind, I had to focus on my business.
Chaos no longer plagues me Thanks be to Jesus! My LORD and Saviour!
My prayer is that if you’re a mom and/or dad building a network marketing business and finding it hard to balance caring for your children and building a business, that you consider, really consider using Bible Scripture to help you organize your time, to get rid of anxiety and worry, and to focus on what you have to be thankful for every minute of the day, even the smallest thing.
