The last two years have been the hardest years our generation has ever seen. We have been through the wringer physically, emotionally, psychologically and even spiritually. The most basic of decisions have become complicated, confusing and even scary. One does not simply go to the grocery store, to work or to school anymore. There are guidelines and expectations and opinions around every corner. People are angry, afraid and divided. 

It is tempting to get wrapped up in all the talk, the news, the opinions. But when we do that we are left feeling overwhelmed, anxious and often, more confused than ever. But we cannot simply ignore the issues we are facing. Everything that is happening effects us and our loved ones tremendously. So how are we to live in this world without becoming crushed by it all?

Today I want to invite you to be part of the solution. I believe we are all here on purpose, for a purpose. I believe you were created to be a part of the good and perfect plans that the creator of the universe has. You were given specific gifts, talents and abilities that equip you for a special position in this world. And you have a choice. We all have a choice.

We can chose to step into our position, or we can just sit back and just wait for it all to be over. 

I for one, am not good at waiting. I discovered a few years ago that I get restless and I need to be a part of the solution. I need to do something. If that is you, text "solution" to 825-250-8897. I will share stories with you of others who are working together to be a part of the solution. You don't have to do this alone.

And if you know you want to do that, but aren't sure exactly what it looks like. here's what I am doing in the coming months to be .a part of the solution:

1. Keeping my mind and body and spirit strong so that I can be the best woman, wife and mother that I can be

2. Opening a Maternity Home to support women and families in need. (check out Amber's Hope Maternity Home on facebook!)

3. Helping restless moms discover a vision for their lives that is not limited by financial burden or overwhelm. 

10 years ago I was an overwhelmed, restless, stay at home mom. I wanted to be home with my babies, but I felt like I was losing battles everyday. Being a mom kicked my a$$. So I started looking for solutions. I started doing things to take care of my body, my mind and my heart. I was introduced to something that helped me do that and make money from home at the same time. 

At first I was skeptical. But then, after getting results in my home, and helping a few others get results in theirs, I couldn't help but share what was helping us all so much! I replaced the income I had been earning when I was working full time. 

Then my husband caught a vision for what I was doing and realized that we could replace his income so that he could come home to farm. At the time he was working full time and using his holidays to seed the crops and harvest them in the fall. When he wasn't working or farming, we would cram our recreation into the occasional 2 day weekend. It was busy and stressful, but I was just thankful he was home in the evenings, even if he was in the tractor. 

In the fall of 2013 my husband quit his full time job. The next year we had another baby. This was one of the best years of my life. That winter we both got to be home with our children. My husband experienced milestones that he had missed with our other two children. That spring I was able to travel, I even took my little one with me. I shared stories with people all over Canada and the US all the while working very part time.

In 2016 our farming operation took a major hit. It was a miserably wet year that made it extremely difficult to get the crop off. In November my husband had planned to join me in Texas for a seminar, but instead he stayed home and harvested in the snow. 

Despite all this, thanks to the skills we had developed and applied to our farming operation, our family and my home based business, we were able to keep moving forward without too much pressure. The next year we expanded our farm, built a shop, had our fourth baby and I played a key role in opening the Pregnancy Care Centre in our community. 

These past two years I have been watching crisis unfold over our world. At times I have felt helpless and heartbroken. I see so many suffering and struggling and for the most part, there is little I can do. However, when I stop and look at my own life, I can see that God has set me on a path that has protected me from much of the destruction. And I have peace, peace that no matter what happens, even if the worst happens to me or my loved ones, my God has good and perfect plans. 

I truly believe that in the end, all that has been lost will be restored to perfection and glory in the King of Kings. I'm tempted to just sit and wait for God to complete this work. But I see now that God places us here to play a role in building His kingdom. I believe God has put me on this path to help others. Years ago when I was struggling in many ways, I cried out to God, asking why, why He doesn't simply heal me and take away the pain.  I knew that He could. And I got a very clear answer that I know did not come from me.

"It's not about you" this answer, though somewhat harsh, gave me a great deal of peace, knowing that my pain was not meaningless. There would be a purpose for it all. I'm here to tell you, that whatever pain you have faced and are facing today, it is not meaningless. It is strengthening you and building you up. Preparing you for the work that you get to do for building the kingdom. 

Please do not hear what I am not saying. I am not saying that you need to be a part of my company to be a part of the kingdom. I'm not saying you need to use my products or services to do good in this world. But I am embracing that this is all a part of my position here on earth. This is my vehicle. For a long time I have struggled because I have not wanted to mix business and faith but for me it is already mixed because my faith plays a huge role in everything that I do.

I may have something that can help you and your family. Maybe you do need natural solutions in your home, maybe you do need to sort out some financial burdens, or maybe you are on a totally different path altogether. Wherever you are at, I trust that your Heavenly Father is leading you. Maybe that's a new concept for you. If it is, I encourage you to consider what it might mean to be led by the creator of the universe. In my opinion, He is the only solution.  

I'd love to hear from you, if you have questions or anything you would like to share with me, send me a text at 825-250-8897

Bless you friend
