As kids, we all want to change the world. Somewhere along the way, that desire changes. We go from wanting to be super heroes, firemen, police officers, doctors, and teachers to something that will make us rich and famous. I know I wanted to be a teacher and missionary like my amazing teacher, Mrs. Leal. Then as adults, we just want to get through life. Where does the spark go?
Maybe we tried a new venture and it failed. Maybe the road ahead looked too scary so we gave up. Or maybe our goal just felt too big. Well, why do we have to make everything so big? There are so many ways to make a change. Some are huge and require life-altering decisions. Some are in the day to day of raising a family. Others are small but add up in the long run.
I know I have failed at enough direct sales that I was afraid to join Younique. It took deciding to step out and give half of our commission away for me to say yes.
At times I have felt like there is no point in trying because one person can’t make a difference. My daughter, in her never ending quest to help people, has shown me otherwise. She has never cared that she is young. She just wants to do something. So she doesn’t lose that excitement and hope, I plan on encouraging her and watering the seeds that have been planted in her.
That is why raising our families is so important. We are shaping the world one family dinner at a time. One load of laundry, one snuggle, one encouraging word at a time. We may not know the outcome for years, but our involvement in our families is crucial. Never give up.
Now to announce Lauren’s project. Food for the Poor has teamed up with us, and together we will raise $1,895 to buy 2 goats, 1 donkey, 2 cows, 3 pigs, 20 chicks, and 1 beehive for a family in Guatemala. It is so exciting to be able to help a family in poverty to have food for generations to come.

Our next project will hopefully be to build a school! It still feels unreal that God wants to use us for this responsibility, but He does.
What dream is God awakening in you?
