Why AdvoCare?

I decided I was going to keep this blog about family times/raising boys/motherhood but I thought I would address this question I keep getting over and over again. 

As many of you know Chris and I joined AdvoCare about 6 months ago.  I was in need of energy and my husband has always been in shape but wanted to tone up even more. He went on to lose 15 lbs and add a ton of muscle. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to do this as a couple hours a week business but what I didn't know is the impact it would have on me.  I am amazed at what this company stands for and the impact it has had on our family in such a short time. Not only is it the best nutrition you can put in your body BUT it has replaced the income that will be taken away due to Chris' upcoming furlough in a month.  It has allowed us to not have to worry and stress over what all needs to be cut from our budget. What I love most about all of this is that we get to meet and help people get healthy and add income to their families. I am just so thankful that a friend told me about this great company and although I will admit I was a little skeptical {my husband way more than me} I am so glad we made the leap of faith. 

This past week I received a Rookie Bonus {Top 7  New Distributors in the company get one each pay period. There are thousands upon thousands of new distributors and I was #6. I know, right?} Now I am not trying to be boastful at all I just want people to realize that this can be YOU. Heck, if I did it ANYONE can do it.

So, there you have it. That is why, for our family, AdvoCare is changing our little life. Our desire is to help others get physically healthy and to help those who need the ability to breathe and have some financial relief. Whether that is making a car payment, house payment or school tuition we really are committed to making that happen for other families/college students and AdvoCare is the vehicle we have been blessed with. 

If you are interested in joining us on this journey we would feel blessed and welcome you and your family with open arms. Life is done better with people around you who can encourage you and support you {...and we have the best team ever}. YOU will succeed with us. YOU will change other peoples lives and in turn yours will change as well

Sometimes all we need is someone to believe in us before we believe in ourselves and as cheesy as that sounds, we believe in YOU!

Today I Spoke His Language...

8+ years of parenting little men and I am still amazed 
that the Lord thought I could do this! I am thankful for the ways each one of my boys continues to open my heart bigger and fill it more than I ever thought imaginable. Today, I decided to not worry about the laundry or the fact that I have a lot of people coming over to my house in a few days. I wanted to take time to speak this little boys love language and thats just what we did. 

He dressed up and we had quite the super hero fight. This boy is something else. There is just something about him that I can't get enough of. He had me laughing to tears as we jumped around and sword fought our way to victory. 

Today, was a great reminder that this is what it's all about.
 Slowing down, soaking in these sweet moments with my little boy. 

Embrace this time with your kids. There will come a day when your house will be still and you will only have these sweet memories that you are making right now with them! 
Happy 1st day of March, friends!!
