After son's birth boss brings spirituality into workplace.. I LOVE IT!!!!

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A for-profit company in Louisville is doing something a little different. It is bringing spirituality into the workplace.
At Signature Healthcare there is a prayer circle in the morning, a prayer room in the building and a company-wide prayer chain with 600 people. Bible verses are written on the walls and yoga is offered during lunch hour.
The company's founder, Joe Steier, came up with the concept after his son Luke was born.
Luke was born 12 weeks early, weighting 3 lbs, 2 oz. He also had a level 3 brain bleed out of 4.
“There's this initial feeling when you realize you're alone and can't handle it and this incredible humanity embraces you,” Steier said. "You start realizing you're not alone. You start seeing power of all these people Baptist leaders, Jewish leaders, different religions, praying with you and your family. Coming together in your darkest hour."
He said those prayers helped him and his family get through and Luke, who is now 9, healed miraculously.
Steier now goes to the nursing homes owned by his father's company and prays with the residents.
He took it further in the nursing homes, adding chaplains and spiritual programs, then added programs in the corporate office.
"At the end of the day people are looking for a more meaningful workplace. I think especially healthcare where so difficult these days,” Steier said.

Why? so many things wrong with this case! three-lives-changed-forever-after-dine-and-dash-turns-violent

I am not even mad at the girls because they will rip what the sow, but why on God's earth would the waitress go after them. There was no way this could have ended well. Then she says she has kids to raise. You should have though about that before you go chasing hoodlums! I feel bad for her but I do not think common sense was in play!

GILBERT, AZ (CBS5) -
It happened at the IHOP near Baseline and Val Vista on Monday afternoon.
Police said the two girls, ages 14 and 16, took their grandmother's car without permission. Police said the girls planned to dine and dash, and didn't bring any money.
The waitress, Juaneece Breneman said the girls ordered fish and chicken strips for a total of $17.23. After eating, they tried to sneak away.
Police tracked the girls to their grandma's house in Mesa using the license plate number. Police said the girls admitted to everything.
They've been booked into the Southeast Juvenile Facility where they face charges of aggravated assault and theft. Breneman wants the girls to be prosecuted.

This is why I cannot trust the daycare system to take care of my son!-Daycare worker caught yelling at a child!

The best person to raise your child is you. I keep praying that God gives me the grace to be the best mother and provide the best care for my son.
I am sure she has been doing this for a long time, she finally got caught. smh

Nigeria aims to have abducted girls freed by Tuesday: government sources

(Reuters) - Nigeria aims to secure the release by Tuesday of more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by Islamist Boko Haram militants, two senior government sources said on Saturday, although they declined to comment on where this handover would take place.
Nigeria's armed forces chief, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, announced on Friday a deal with Boko Haram for a ceasefire that would enable the release of the girls, whose abduction while taking exams in the remote northeastern town of Chibok in April caused international shock and outrage.

The announcement came a day before a rally of supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja at which either Jonathan or his vice president, Namadi Sambo, ie expected to announce his candidacy for February 2015 elections.

It seems like forever!! Major sidetrack!!

It seems like forever since I blogged! Actually, somewhere down the path I was taking I lost my motivation and inspiration! Without saying too much right now I sidetracked so much that my life right now is about to take a very different path. There is a saying that goes that hindsight is 20/20. I guess I do not have good hindsight and my vision was certainly not 20/20! I refuse to give up even though I created the chaos in my life right now!
I know that life cannot be all bad and things do change and get better just like the seasons. 2013 started out very rough in ways that I never imagined or dreamed it would be and it is mid year and I have nothing to show so far. As much as I sometimes want to just lay down and die, something inside me just keeps pushing me to get up and keep trying. I am pushed to seek a better life, pushed to never quit, push to trust God in all I do but must importantly pushed to let go and let God. I will get my motivation and find new inspirations. When life gives you lemons Darn it!!! make some gosh darn lemonades!!!!!!!!!!

Peace and Love
# RockSteady!!!!

Surviving!





Sexual abuse is very sensitive subject and must people do not like to talk about it. I was born and raised in Nigeria where my abuse took place. As a child, I never told anyone about my abuse and I lived with it for many years. Coming to America like I have said many times was an eye opener for me this is where I realized that abuse was wrong though I never sought help for it.
 I see myself as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I have written most of my story on my blog already but lately, I have been thinking about what it takes to actually become a survivor! What does that word mean? According to the dictionary, the word survive has several definitions. ‘To survive’ means: To carry on despite hardships or trauma; to persevere; to cope with (a trauma or setback); to persevere after a tough incident. One source defines a survivor as ‘One who lives through affliction’! I like that last one the most.
Yes! I have been carrying on despite trauma but I realize I am I just floating through life and letting life dictate for me what and how I should feel. What is controlling my happiness and my success? Sure! I survived childhood abuse but what psychological effect has it had on my life thus far?
How do I see myself as survivor and what actions do I have to take in my daily life to overcome my demons? Can you really be free from the demons of the past or do you just learn to live with them? And not let the demons dictate for you how you are going to live your life? I spent time looking back at the decisions I had made so far in my life and I realize that I am still tied to my past. My self esteem was not what I thought it was. I was still doing things and involving myself with things and people that indicated to me that I have no self love.
So the battle continues between good and evil. Do I rise up to the occasion or do I continue to be a product of my environment? I am mainly asking myself questions right now so my writing will reflect what is going on in my head at the moment. All questions will be answered step by step. One thing I am learning to do is be present in my life, moment by moment.

Domestic Violence!

Recently I have been meeting women who are struggling with this issue! I know domestic violence is very real but I did not know the extend as to how many women suffer from this every day.
I am going to post some fact about this issue!

Definition

Domestic violence and emotional abuse are behaviors used by one person in a relationship to control the other. Partners may be married or not married; heterosexual, gay, or lesbian; living together, separated or dating.

Examples of abuse include:

■name-calling or put downs

■keeping a partner from contacting their family or friends

■withholding money

■stopping a partner from getting or keeping a job

■actual or threatened physical harm

■sexual assault

■stalking

■intimidation

Violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking. Although emotional, psychological and financial abuse are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence.

The violence takes many forms and can happen all the time or once in a while. An important step to help yourself or someone you know in preventing or stopping violence is recognizing the warning signs listed on the "Violence Wheel."

ANYONE CAN BE A VICTIM! Victims can be of any age, sex, race, culture, religion, education, employment or marital status. Although both men and women can be abused, most victims are women. Children in homes where there is domestic violence are more likely to be abused and/or neglected. Most children in these homes know about the violence. Even if a child is not physically harmed, they may have emotional and behavior problems.

If you are being abused, REMEMBER

1.You are not alone

2.It is not your fault

3.Help is available

IN DUE TIME!




I write not only to encourage you but also to encourage myself and remain in my faith and trust in the Lord and in His perfect timing.
It is extremely hard to see God’s hands in the midst of our trials and tribulation but we must stand firm and hold on to His promises that he will never forsake us even though on the surface and around us it may appear everything has gone wrong and we cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. No matter how hard we try, nothing seems to be coming together. Your family and friends have all forsaken you and your spirit is in a constant state of brokenness.  You are always on the verge of tears. This is the point where you need to dig deeper and do whatever is necessary for you to maintain your sanity and not lose your faith.
                Remember Job in his many afflictions? How through it all he kept his eyes on God? Like I said earlier, when I write these words I am talking to myself as well as to you. If I could write everything I am going through right now as I write, you would wonder how I am able to maintain my sanity and trust in God.  We have a tendency to look around for help and try to work things out on our own when God just wants us to look to him. Job had every reason to turn his eyes away from God after all he lost everything and was in pain. Yes, he wallowed in self pity but he did not allow it to overcome his entire being. When he realized what he was doing, he got right back to God and he knew that in due time God was going to restore him. Even with the negative motivators in his life, he refused to curse God. Deep inside him he knew where his help was coming from. In God’s time, Job was restored to an even greater state than he was before his troubles.  His affliction became a thing of the past.
