Contagious Comeback

Do you feel like you have had multiple setbacks holding you back?  Are you ready to breakthrough and feel powerful again?  Declare it your year with these 4 statements!


Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12:1-3


It is a process as we walk through things on our journey.


Declare every morning!


1. I will hope!

2. I will pray!

3. I will believe!

4. I will endure!


It is the year of the CONTAGIOUS COMEBACK!!

I believe in you and know you abundance awaits you– CLAIM it!

January 6~ I am woman hear me roar!

I am woman hear me roar

18 years ago in Gainesville, TX made weather history with record temperatures, storms, ice, snow, wind and tropics and was also the day I was married.  As I said my vows in the small church I grew up in, never did I think I would be where I am now. We never know what life will bring us or take us, but I do not each experience, decision, and consequence creates the unique human being we are today. I am woman hear me roar!

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
’cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again

It was a cold day in Texas, but the church was full of friends and family witnessing a beautiful, quaint wedding.  Love was definitely in the air and tears of joy scattered throughout the beautiful ivy and maroon bow decorated church.  The pastor even told us we were the one couple in all of his counseling who was made for each other.

The first year of marriage was full of accomplishments with college graduations, new apartments, and first career positions. The second year brought a beautiful baby boy and the first time he hit me. Yes, there were signs of abuse before the actual abuse happened, but I did not know those signs then. Domestic violence has a vicious cycle and no one ever plans to be a part of the cycle.  Each day, I worked and took care of my family the best I could.  I never knew what to expect when he came home from work each day.  I would anxiously clean the house and cook to what I thought would please him. Some days, he was pleased and some days he was not.  I remember being drug on the carpet for not properly loading the dishwasher or folding the towels.  In the scheme of things, everyone folds towels differently or loads the dishwasher differently, but does it really matter as long as it is done. I lived the cycle for nine years and was blessed with another baby boy.

On July 4, 2004, I decided it was the last time he would hit me.  On July 5, 2004, he came home to an empty house.  Yes, I was a statistic who moved in and out multiple times.  I understand the cycle and the honeymoon phase where he promises to never do it again and wanting to keep my family together for my boys. I had to decide to break the cycle for my boys.  I did not want them to grow up to treat their spouses this way.  Being a single mom is not the easiest or the life I wanted for them, but I have done the best I can with what we have.  They are amazing boys with good manners and great respect.

I am woman hear me roar!

January 6, 2014 is another weather history day with cold temperatures, but I am a strong, confident woman free of domestic violence.  Today, I celebrate my life with experiences, decisions, and consequences that have made me who I am.

I am woman… hear me roar!
