Committing my Cause to God in 2013


When I got the review from WordPress and found out that people in 94 countries have been reading my stories, I was totally blown away.  I want to thank each of you for looking at this blog.  Happy New Year.  I wonder where we will be 2014.  I know for sure, if we don’t start now, we will be looking back and wishing we had.

I found a wonderful Scripture in Job 5:8.  It says “I would seek God and unto God I would commit my cause.”  This year, I am starting a new business venture and it is set to kick off today.  Seeking God, I commit this new venture to Him.

I have spent a lot of money (for me) to develop web pages that will help me and those I select to become successful!!  There are many wonderful tools that I can share with others.

I must confess, I have butterflies, but as with any business, you have to spend money to make money.  Very soon I will post a blog that tells you how you can apply, if you are interested.  While I don’t promise that you will make $1 million, those who will be serious can develop a nice income as a result of their effort.  The amazing tools and support makes success not only possible but highly probable.

I am also part of a group of friends that are committing to live wiser lives this year by eating healthy and normalizing our weight once and for all.  We are starting after New Year’s Day.  Stay tuned for my progress!

Watch for my announcement!!

 “What are you seeking and what cause do you have in 2013?”  Let me know.

If You Have a Loved One With Degenerative Neurological Disease, Then Read This About the Ketones in Virgin Coconut Oil!!


First of all, I make no health claims and I am just talking about research about coconut oil available  on-line.  I found an article about the ketones in Coconut Oil.  It is touted by Dr. Mary Newport about the effects it had on her husband’s degenerative neurological disease and I am fascinated.  Her husband had symptoms of Alzheimer’s and mine has the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.   It seems that ketones in Virgin Coconut Oil may allow the of glucose in the neurological centers of the brain to be absorbed.  (At least that is what I think she said.)  Could this be a wonderful health secret for many diseases and symptoms?

Joe and I will be trying this out and following the protocol that Dr Mary Newport describes in her article, ‘What if there were a cure for Alzheimer’s and no one knew.”  Coconut Oil our new favorite food.  She also recommends using coconut milk for cereal and other places you might want to use milk.  So many wonderful ideas.

Other related diseases mentioned in the article include Huntington’s chorea, multiple sclerosis, ALS, type I and type II diabetes, as well as any number of other conditions that involve a defect in transport of glucose into neurons and other cells.   On the video (link follows), she speaks of possible applications for newborns as well.  I hope she is right.

Big Pharma will never pick this up as they cannot patent food.

The links to the information are at the bottom of the page!!

Only use organic Virgin or Expeller Pressed coconut oil.    Quality matters.

I found this cool recipe:

Frozen Chocolate Coconut Fudge

Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Mix together all ingredients. Pour on a piece of unbleached parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Spread out to about 1/4″ thick.

Place fudge in freezer. Let set for about 30 minutes.

Break into pieces and serve or put in container back in freezer until you are ready to serve.

Saving Daylight Productively in 2012


Our ancestors thought it would be a good idea to save daylight.  It is really not a savings but a reallocation.  We are moving the time from of the daylight hours from early morning to later in the day.  Personally, I think a golfer came up with this idea and when I did my research, this certainly played into it.

Well, so the real question is – “What shall I do in the evening with all that lovely daylight?”

Here are some great ideas: Take a walk. Take a drive in the country (if you can afford the gas.)  Have guests in for a bar-b-Que.  All very good ideas.

But I have a great idea!  I will have a Sensé beautiful science® Spa Party!

This truly fabulous skin-care has groundbreaking, patented self-preserving technology and no added chemical preservatives.  The products stay fresh naturally.  They are gentle and healthy even for the most sensitive skin.  The antioxidant complexes in every product revitalize skin cells, leaving your skin looking younger and more radiant while properly nourishing and rehydrating your cells.

So, I will plan a Spa Party and invite over several friends and introduce them to the feeling of really clean, hydrated skin.  I will set up the table with healthy fruit snacks.  Then we will use the products while we fellowship and catch up on each others lives.    When my guests leave, their skin will be clean and radiant in the beautiful early evening light.

There is nothing quite like a Sense’ facial.  It makes you glow.  Even some Hollywood stars and news anchors swear by the products as they really clean up even the heavy makeup used to look good on the big screen.

Yep!  I think that is a great way to use daylight.

So, here is my question.  “How are you going to use that lovely daylight hour?”

A great job you can do on vacation!!


For many years, I did ‘headhunting’ and when we would vacation, I would look for a pay phone and try to close a deal hundreds of miles away from the office.  While I was good at my job and closed many deals at the office, there was something about being on vacation and trying to get things to come together.  It never worked.  If I made the placement, they would unravel within hours. 

The last few years before I retired, cell phones were becoming popular.  It eased some of the stress and the last few years, I felt more confident.  But the intense nature of the job and the timing of being available at a moments notice made the attempts unsatisfying.  The point of the vacation was to relax and it kept me on edge.

After retirement, I began to sell Usana.  These are the highest quality supplements available according to an independent study of over 1500 companies that manufacture vitamins.  They have a manufacturing facility that was approved this year by the FDC.  They manufacture pharmaceutical grade products.  What’s on the label is in the bottle and is bio-available to the body – which means it absorbs and doesn’t end up in the commode.

That was my commercial . . . now, why do I think I have a job that can be done on vacation?  Usana can be presented to anyone, anywhere.  You carry a small folio that has the catalog and a computer for placing the first order.  After that, they go on autoship and are in charge of changing their own orders.

They have conventions and training all through the year in wonderful destinations that can be tied into a vacation and actually help make the vacation affordable by deducting some of the costs from your taxes.

With some of my up line at the international Usana Convention in Salt Lake City

As a business, it has the best payout in the industry.  My website is http://encorenow.usana.com.  You can read about the impact it has had on my life and my family and fill out a form so that I can contact you.

Would you like to make money, improve your health and be part of a quality organization that cares to make products that are superior to most any in the industry?  Let me know.

Usana Aspirations for 2012 better known as goals!


Love Me the Sports!Am I only one or are there others out there who do not like the word goal.  Goals are what hockey pucks and footballs are directed to make!  When I was full-time in the sales world, I would have goals thrust upon me without any input on my part.  I found a way to sabotage their goal every time.  The month before and the month after, I would knock it out of the park!  I missed out on a lot of cruises with this silly behavior.

So why does the word goal still make me take a deep ragged breath?  I am now able to do what I choose each day without corporate’s help.  So I looked up the definition of the word ‘goal.’  I chose the one that is closest to what the word means in the business world.  It is “the end toward which effort is directed.”  It gave the words aim, aspire and intend as synonyms.  I think I can aspire to do well and aim at a desired end without using the word goal.  My intentions are good!!!

What are my aspirations for 2012?

I aspire to get serious about the Usana business and end the 2011 vacation.Image Detail

I aspire to help people find health, a healthy weight and beautiful skin.

I aspire to develop at least two new customers a month.  (I am “retired!”)

I aspire to getting the office in working order before January.

My aim is to enjoy everyday and every person whether of not they becomes a client.

That list is as detailed as I am willing to get!

A Quick Way to get into the Christmas Spirit!


A quick way to get into the holiday spirit is to begin to make something for a loved one.  It can be simple – a Christmas card, a unique poem, a craft, a snowflake or special baked goods.  The task itself may not be quick, but the Christmas spirit will rise up inside you.  It will give you joy thinking about the other person as you begin to develop the special item.

This year, I am writing special poems for my grandchildren and then illustrating them.  Now, I want you to know that I am not an artist, but I love to write poetry.  The art is a love gift from my heart.  It is simple but it makes the point

I thought perhaps a quick way to end this post would be with a little poem to EncoreNow readers.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Christmas can get hectic if we try to hard,

Buying and trimming trees and being too involved.

We forget what the season is really all about,

Because there are so many voices crowding it all out..

A little baby that was the Son of God in a manger lay

And that is the reason we have Christmas day

So say Merry Christmas to others that you meet

Remember the reason as you smile at others that you greet!

It is a quick way to feel good inside today

Take the time to settle down and know its all okay

With a cup of cocoa, curl up on in your easy chair

Relax, breathe deep and say a gratful prayer!
