Welcome to another video blog post, which I believe is week 8. ( I've lost tract!!)
This past week I complied a list of 6 secrets or steps to living a joy-filled life. In this video I cover the first 3.
No matter what life brings you, you can learn to live victoriously just the same.
Enjoy this video, and be blessed and encouraged!
And be sure and check back here for part two!

Just wanted to get on here quick this evening and share some encouraging words.
No matter what you might be going through right now. Regardless of how hard and painful it may be. I have is good news for you.
There is hope and healing for the broken in heart!
God is a healer of broken hearts! And He is our source of comfort, peace, and strength.
He hears your crys, He knows your pain, and He cares.
Some times things happen that are completely out of our control that we don't understand and we don't need to. We just need to know who is in charge and who is on the throne. And rest assured, He is holding your hand. He is in control and He's got this.
In Isaiah 55:8-9 we read , " For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord." "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Deuteronomy 29:29 "The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law."
It is the hard things in life, the things we cannot understand that us bring closer to where God wants us. He has a plan we cannot see - a plan far greater than anything we could ever hope for or imagine. I get excited thinking about it, don't you?
Here is beautiful quote.
"There are some circumstances over which we have no control. However, if we are redeemed children of God, we are exactly where He wants us, because His sovereignty rules over all our situations." - Charles F. Stanley
Below is a little devotion of Corrie ten Boom's that I find very encouraging and comforting.
In Christ our Hope and Strength, Mae
Jesus did not promise to change the circumstances around us. He promised great peace and pure joy to those who would learn to believe that God actually controls all things.
"One day, when He shows Himself in full splendor to men, you will be filled with the most tremendous joy.... You can be sure that God's spirit of glory... is resting upon you." 1 Peter 13-14
Your will be done, father. Teach us that you, not we control our lives for our own good. - Corrie ten Boom

Here is week 6 video blog post.
In this weeks video I am encouraging you that no matter what you are going through and what you are in the middle of, that God is right there with you.
He is not only holding your hand through your time of difficulty, but He is carrying you in His arms as well!
I may not know what you are going through, but I know that our God is with you in the midst of it, and is in control of this. He is working out all things for your good!
Trust and rest in Him.
In Christ, Mae
I am happy to share with you that our story has just came out in this issue, ( issue # 96 ) of the Above Rubies magazine, from the Above Rubies Ministry. So excited about that!
This little magazine goes in to 100 countries! So you can only imagine how many homes it will go into. All the stories and articles in there are always so good and inspiring, but I am excited about our story being a blessing and encouragement to many as well.
I have several magazines to give away to friends and family in my community.
If anyone else would like a copy of the Above Rubies magazine please visit the Above Rubies website to request a copy. Ask for issue # 96, or you could be put on the mailing list to be a regular subscriber. All magazines are by donations.
I may never know how all God will use our story. But when you share something that God has put on your heart, I know that He has a plan for it and it will bless someone. Our part is to be obedient, and He will take care of the rest. When we give our little to God, He does something big with it!
In Him, Mae
I am a student Christian life coach, married to my husband for 19 years, and a home-school mom of 8 children ages 18 to 2 ( one of which is in heaven ).
I am currently offering free coaching sessions. I need to practice my coaching on real people with their unique problems and concerns.
My focus is on parent coaching, and Hope & Healing after Loss.
Would you be interested in FREE coaching sessions? I am prepared to offer 4 to 5 MOTIVATED individuals 4 coaching sessions spaced one or two weeks apart. The sessions would be by phone and would last between 30 min to an hour in length and then you´d probably have homework of some kind, depending on what you decided you wanted to do.
You must be willing and able to do what it takes and really want to make changes in your life- the changes you decide to make. Life coaching is NOT counseling or therapy. More like that personal trainer at the gym. You do the work and you focus on your goals. I just help to carve out a path to get there, and keep you accountable.
If you are interested you can hop over to my coaching page for more info and send me a message in the contact box. If you are seeking a life coach to assist you in others areas than I mentioned above, just let me know, and I will see if it's something I can be help to you in.
I looking forward to working with you!
I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Paul, of over 22 years. Mommy to 9 blessings, ages 21 to 3 years. Our 2nd oldest son, at age 14, has gone on to be with the Lord on April 19th, 2017. I share about that new road we are on here on my blog.
My first 7 years of blogging.
Great inspirational reading!
