Faith and the Origin of Disappointment

Faith and the Origin of Disappointment

I was reading one of Pastor Blackman’s Blog post and it hit a heart cord and I said to myself, that I wanted to share this information with my followers. I’ve actually had a wonderful opportunity to sit under his ministry for many years and he has helped me to grow my faith as a believer in God. He is an awesome pastor to follow, gleam and learn from. We are about to enter one of the most well celebrated times of the year; yet  the Holidays can be a difficult time for some. Read below and let your heart not be troubled this Holiday season; but of good cheer, great light, abundance, faith, love and whole well-being. Be encouraged and be blessed. Enjoy the blog.  Kim Evans

Disappointment stems from failing hopes and expectations.  Jeremiah 17:5 tells us, “cursed is the man who trust in man and makes his flesh his strength”.  It happens every day in marriages where spouses put their faith in the institution itself or in their spouse and one day realizes he or she couldn’t be the person in the fairy tale.

Parents suffer disappointments when their hopes for those once cute, smart children end up disasters at life.  Many sicknesses are simply a result of multiple disappointments.  Since Proverbs 17:22 says, “a merry heart does good like medicine, health to the bones”, then the opposite has to be inevitable in that much disappointment is destructive to the body.

One example of the repercussions of disappointments is in the area of diabetes. The pancreas produces insulin to give the body energy. God made the body and all its internal organs to function and synchronize according to His divine design. The pupils expand in the dark to see better. Hair follicles swell and create chill bumps to prevent cold from entering the body and our temperatures rise whenever a virus attacks our bodies in order to burn and kill it. If the body is saddened as a result of constant disappointments, it dictates to the pancreas to cease functioning because the individual doesn’t need any more energy.

The other portion of the scripture in Jeremiah 17 says, “but blessed is the man who puts his trust in God”. Most believers know the scripture but there is no application thereof, which concludes that they are not walking by faith. When we walk and live by faith, our marriages and spouses come under the authority of the word of God and no matter what they do or how they act, it doesn’t shake us. We live knowing that we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood. We also live this life knowing our spouses can fail us but God never will.

The same is said for our children. Children are like arrows in the hand of a mighty hunter. As parents, we direct them by the word, and if they seem to have failed our standards we are not moved. Our faith is always in God. As we meditate on God’s word day and night we shall be like trees planted by the rivers of water, never moved. Surprise factor, zero.

Our faith is the victory that causes us to overcome disappointments and everything this world and life confronts us with. Declare now!

-I am strong – I will never be moved by anything – My surprise factor is zero – God’s Word never fails – God watches His Word to perform it – All things work together for my good because I love God and I am called according to His purpose – Disappointment is only evidence of the battle I’m in – I always triumph over all things through Christ Jesus.  Hallelujah!

7 Nutrition tips for Ramadan to help maintain Good Health by Kim Evans, MA

7  Nutrition tips for Ramadan to help maintain Good Health by Kim Evans, MA

Ramadan is the Holy Month of fasting and blessings. It brings new beginnings, new lifestyle changes and a host of special customs that can improve one’s health. Although I do not practice the tradition myself, many of my clients that I serve do and I decided to do a little research and share some health and wellness tips on the tradition.

Eating healthy during Ramadan is key and following right habits for balanced Iftar. You don’t want to cause unjust harm to the body when not followed correctly. Drink plenty of water during the holy month of Ramadan in small quantities. This will reduce bloating. Remember to keep the body hydrated and maintain a healthy weight during Ramadan. Here are some nutrition tips to follow at Iftar and Suhour to help successfully complete your goal by July 17, give you adequate nutrition and continued health.[For those that do not practice Ramadan, Iftar is the meal eaten by Muslims after sunset during Ramadan. Suhour, is the meal consumed early in the morning before fasting during Ramadan.]

Tip 1: Moderation is the key to health: A healthy lftar, break the fast with the start with 2 dates, then a glass of water, then start your meal with a warm bowl of soup, a salad and main course.

Tip 2: Comforting the stomach after a long day of fasting is very important. Make sure to replenish your body with plenty of fluids. By doing so helps to prepare the digestive system for a blessed meal.

Tip 3: Moderation is the key to health: A balanced meal can contain carbohydrates like rice, pasta, potatoes or Bulgar. A good protein can be in form of beef, chicken, legumes or fish along with vegetables. Ensure you have at least one of these food sources with every meal, carbohydrate, protein and vegetables. This helps to reduce temptation of desiring and eating sweets! Try to avoid sweets during you fast if at all possible.

Tip 4: For better health, avoid foods that are too spicy and salty. Consume more fruits and vegetables to help refresh the body. When cooking, add herbs and spices to help add flavor and color to your meals.

Tip 5: To avoid constipation, eat more fiber by eating vegetables, fruits and whole grains and legumes. Drink plenty of water. Have low intensity exercise when possible.

Tip 6: If you exercise or a regular athlete, you can still maintain your fast by incorporating your exercise before Iftar. Remember hydration is the key. Make sure you replenish your cells with fluid and nutrients immediately after your session and eat slowly for proper digestion.

Tips 7: For the coffee lovers,  avoid  or reduce it two weeks before start of the Holy month. If you must, enjoy a cup one to two hours after have a healthy balanced Iftar. Remember to get your sleep in. Having great sleep improves your overall health, digestion and well-being.


Have a Healthy Ramadan!

“Is Your Time Worth What You Think It Is?”

I like to share this wonderful writeup by Ali Brown:
Time is the most important asset you have—and unlike money, once you’ve spent it, you can’t earn any more. That’s why it’s so important to make the most of your 24 hours, especially as a business owner.

So, how can you become more productive and profitable, without working insane hours and sacrificing your personal life? Read on for a few steps on how to start managing your time like a successful entrepreneur…

STEP 1: Discover how much your time is worth The first step to maximizing your time is to understand what yours is really worth. This is an exercise I do with any client who has a time crunch. It’s great to help you gauge what your time is generally worth. (IMPORTANT: This is NOT a formula for determining your rates, but it can be used as a start.):

Income ÷ Hours worked = Hourly Rate Let’s say your income last month was $16,000 and you worked eight hours a day for 20 days. That’s a total of 160 hours. So, your hourly rate would be calculated like this:
$16,000 ÷ 160 = $100 Per Hour

Based on this example, your hours are worth $100. Now, let’s find out if you’re spending every hour of every day on $100 activities.

STEP 2: Take an honest assessment of the TYPE of work you do Now, think about the tasks you do for your business. Are they key business tasks, or supportive business tasks? (Key business tasks are those directly related to growing the business and driving it forward, like networking for new clients and opportunities, creating a new product line, etc. Supportive business tasks are those that support your key activities, like in voicing, organizing, etc.)

You want to work ON your business by focusing on key business tasks—not IN it (by overwhelming yourself with supportive business tasks).
Think about it: If your business doesn’t run unless you’re managing it all, all you’ve done is swapped a job with an employer by employing yourself as an administrative assistant, bookkeeper, etc. And the truth is, it will be very hard to run a successful business this way. Quite a wake-up call isn’t it?
I have clients track their time for an entire week, and then share with me what they discover. They hate it, but it’s VERY enlightening!

STEP 3: Delegate your tasks You are the boss—so let someone else help manage and do the supportive business tasks, so you can concentrate on developing the strategies that will make you more money and take your business in the direction you want to go. The more you learn to let go and delegate to other people, the more you can focus on your REAL job: those core business activities.

Here are some of the duties and responsibilities you can easily hand off to someone else:
* Accounting and bookkeeping
* Administrative tasks
* Customer Support
* Booking Travel
* Managing your calendar
* Email and web marketing
* Office/Home Cleaning

Question: What’s your BEST time management secret? And how did it help you become more productive and profitable? Tell me in the comment section below.

Counsel, Lose the Black Wardrobe at Trial!

By  Patrice Truman, Esq.

Did you hear? Orange is the New Black received the most Emmy nominations of the year for a television comedy series. In the courtroom, change that title to Wear Anything But Predominately Black.

Counsel, lose the black suit or dress at trial! This recommendation is primarily addressed to female counsel in the courtroom. [But note to male counsel: A black suit has an undertaker feel to it, just as the wide pin stripe suit negatively connotes a slick, untrustworthy person derived from the gangster movies.]

In post trial interviews, jurors have stated that the black suit or black dress, worn day after day by female lawyers becomes drab and depressing to look at because it casts a dark pall over trial. (And silhouette face lines?) There is no reason for female counsel to imitate the black colored garb worn by the judge to signify authority.

Believe in, celebrate, and wear color! A female trial lawyer can be perceived as serious, intelligent, and a worthy presence in the courtroom with a wardrobe of color. Jurors notice wardrobe style because it provides a distraction from the side bars and certain other monotony that accompanies each trial day.

So what colors are appropriate in the courtroom for the suit or tailored dress with accompanying jacket? Beige (elegant), deep hues of purple (regal), midnight blue (power), and navy blue (reliability), cantaloupe (freshness), and others such as camel, lavenders moving into the grays or teal toward subdued green. In the end, think of the color wheel that flatters but avoid bright red. Bright fire engine red still connotes hot and smoldering, attention grabbing sexual innuendo.

How about a pinstripe suit? No, avoid imitating opposing male counsel’s dress. Femininity has power, so celebrate it, especially when the holder of it demonstrates confidence, organization, and civility in the courtroom. Perhaps that’s why some jurors have referred to female counsel wearing black as “black widow”, Morticia (of Addams Family fame), or Cruella Deville. Indeed, wearing black does not promote counsel’s credibility especially when the demeanor attributes have gone missing.

The exclusion of predominate black should not be replaced with bold prints. Prints and patterns are okay, but they need to be subdued and classic. A suit with a patterned tweed or subdued pale plaid may work to convey professionalism, but a flower print on a longer length dress will not convey a courtroom style. As for hem length, remember your theme of professional elegance, in accordance with your body type. If in doubt, seek out an opinion from another professional woman on how you are perceived in a certain outfit.

Pant suits, okay? Yes! See discussion above. Black skirt with contrasting colored blouse and jacket, okay? Yes! See above.

Here are a few more suggestions to consider: Avoid showing cleavage because the female lawyer needs to be mindful of showing respect for the court; no open toed shoes or strappy shoes because feet can be elegant and stylish without trying to appear sexy; unless one has great legs both in shape, weight, and free of spider veins, it is best to invest in some expensive panty hose. Not wearing nylons is just a current fad, keyword here being fad. Jewelry can be subdued or more pronounced depending on personal preference, but just shy away from the sparkling diamonds and any gaudy, overbearing jewelry.

Just remember that confidence is power and power includes femininity. So, use color to work for you in the courtroom, and save the black wardrobe for the evening, After 5.

Client question, why is it difficult losing weight?

Speaking of [Beauty, Health & Wellness]: Inspiration is all around us!
Emailed Client Question that I like to share: [Great read]

One of my clients asked me after attending a women’s conference:
“I was at an event out-of-town and there were over 2,000 women there, and “the hot topic”, a large number of them suffering from not being able to lose weight. I could not believe how many were clearly suffering for this, why is that?”

Respectfully & with great intention here is my response: There are a myriad of health factors, (genetics, immune function, environment, gene expression, etc.), to consider and health reasons why some people are challenged with being overweight, but I will mention a few. Firsthand, when the body is overweight it is an inflammatory response of the body that something is out-of-order.

Here’s a few eye-opening reasons:
#1 Inflammation,
Hormonal imbalances,
High saturated fatty diet,
Lack of physical exercise,
Lack of self-care & nourishment,
Loss sense of your center,
Stress hormone cortisol, (causes fat around the belly),
Metabolic syndrome X,
Too much darn life stress.

Are just a few reasons why the inches will not move away
Why diets don’t work!
Are you listening? Do you suffering from any of these?

She was blown away: After I just hinted a few (of many) reasons, her response was okay,… “Create a Webinar” with solutions to this issue.  I said, you are right and you just inspired me to create it!

Look out for the details of my August “Beauty, Health & Wellness” Webinar, about cortisol & managed stress, how to stay healthy, in my next post. Inspiration is all around us all the time, so be inspired to change the world!

Happy Friday | Where is your Faith?

Here is a great article that I would like to share on faith posted on
February 7, 2014 by Ali Brown. A very good motivational read. In fact, I personally met Ali Brown a year ago in SF and have learned a great deal from her business model that has help my business grow tremendously. Please enjoy.

Ali brown In 2002, I had been married two years to my first husband, whom I’ll just call “G”. While we each had our own reasonably successful business ventures (I was just really starting to ramp up my online business), we were still struggling financially, living in a rented one-bedroom apartment in
Los Angeles, and carrying more than $30,000 in credit card debts. It was surely causing a lot of stress in our marriage.

A friend of ours invited us to attend a “money mindset” seminar that sounded perfect for our situation. Although the event was free, it was still a big decision to take three days off, drive down to San Diego, and pay for a hotel.

Once we arrived, our initial skepticism transformed into excitement and hope, as we listened to the information, did verbal and written exercises, shared, cried, sang, and broke boards with karate chops. (Yep, we drank the Kool-Aid.)

I remember driving home with G after that event, listening to him talking with a friend on his cell phone, and he sounded different—positive and confident, like the man I had originally married. It was so attractive! I felt different too. I was so excited for us to grow together, to have a bright future, to live together in this new positive mindset we’d found. I could barely sleep that evening.

The next morning, I got out our workshop materials, and we continued the work we agreed to do each morning. The first week was no problem. Then, the next Monday morning G made some excuse, and the next day, and the next day, and that was the end of that. I kept doing them alone.

The next time we took our weekly walk along the beach by the large and stunning multimillion dollar homes, I told him I wanted to start going to open houses… to set the intention we’d one day have a gorgeous home like these. He said, “Why should we bother? We’ll never have a house like this. We’re in tons of debt.”

I went by myself. (And, later, I actually bought one of those houses… but that’s another story.)

In the months that followed, my business began to grow, and more money started coming in. I excitedly shared these results with G (“See? It’s working. Isn’t this exciting?”) and gently encouraged him to get back on track. Finally I realized he didn’t even want to hear about my success. He finally got angry and said, “Listen, I did the seminar, I get it… I don’t need to do that stuff every day or think that way, OK….”

I didn’t make a big deal out of it, and I let him be.

But as I grew, both personally and financially, and began investing in my growth via trainings, workshops, and coaching, G became more stuck and frustrated. I tried everything… helping him with business ideas, getting us counseling, hiring him a coach, and more.

And then one day, I realized his negativity had become absolutely toxic, and I just couldn’t carry him anymore. I was heartbroken but knew I had to move on. (He didn’t argue with me.)

What was the difference here? Was it really my attending seminars and getting the coaching and doing the personal work that made me successful, and not G?

Well, no. Because you also see a lot of folks going to seminar after seminar and not getting results.

Really the core difference was that I was learning to live in faith. It was truly my new OS (operating system), and still is today.

While unpacking boxes with Brett at our new home in Scottsdale, I came across a great book a friend introduced me to years ago. It’s by Robert Russell, and it’s called God Works Through Faith.

(And if you’re not comfortable with that G word, whatever. Just insert your own here, like Source, Spirit, Universe, Higher Power… just stay with me here.)

He writes, “Faith is the belief that you have the power to do all things. It is a magnetic power that attracts the answer to your prayer. Results do not come by chance, accident, or fate. They are molded by your faith in your power through God.”

Faith is belief in what you cannot see and cannot understand. It’s belief in a power greater than you. And when you align with it, stay in faith, let it flow through you, and follow its messages, miracles happen.

This doesn’t mean I don’t have my moments of worry, fear, or doubt. But the key is simply catching yourself when you go to that place. Take a deep breath and gently redirect your thoughts to what you want to happen, how you want to be, and how you see your life and business evolving.

One of my favorite teachers on worry is Joyce Meyer. She says worry is negative prayer—it’s essentially praying for what you do NOT want.

Worry is a huge problem for most of us, and especially for women. I come from a long line of worriers, and this is something I have to continually monitor and manage. If I don’t, it will just eat me alive.

I seem most vulnerable to this right when I wake up in the morning. My to-do list comes crashing down on my head as soon as I open my eyes. An endless list of things for the business, the house, the kids, my mom. If I don’t immediately take control of my thoughts in a positive way, my brain will instantly start spiraling downhill. (And now that I have children, this has also seemed to double, by the way.)

To shift it, I take a deep breath and move into gratitude… I think about all the wonderful things in my life right now such as my twin babies and their dad, our beautiful new home in the desert, having a business and clients I love, and the exciting opportunities I know are in front of me. That seems to get me in the right direction, and all the little things in the way seem to lose their power over me.

There’s a lot more to it, but that’s what gets me started in the right direction. Because I found faith to be such a powerful part of what drives me and my success, I created a program called “Divine Success: The 7 Phases to Realizing Your Dreams”, which I think you’ll really enjoy. You can take a look at it here—it may be exactly what you need right now.
