Be Creating a Full Time Family 

A family where we can choose to spend most of our time together. 

A family where the children have equal time with both parents. 

A family that can be full time living life together and part time at work. 

My personal definition of a full time family. 

  
A place where we choose our schedule and money is of no consequence.  (What is money anyways, but a concept of trading money for time.) We are working very hard, every day to create residual, freedom income.  Sexy Neck is working with a contractor to create a rental home on our property. I have launched a book into the world and I love coaching people using nutritional systems I love.  The company gives me rebates for supporting and loving people to reach their individual energy, performance, weight loss, healthy aging or even financial goals. 

My dreams continue to become reality as Sexy Neck and I walked our boys to school together today.  As he is an educator with similar hours, I can count on two hands how many times he has been able to walk with us to school in the last four years. 

I will hold to my full time family vision, not knowing ‘how’ it is going to unfold.   My mom’s death taught me that sometimes we can’t just figure things out, we must walk them out. 

With excitement.  

With gratitude for each day. 

With moments like this. 

As a full time family. 

  

Be A Fleecer

After my oldest son’s birth, I went back to part time teaching.  It became very clear, very quickly that I couldn’t do this “mother thing” and “teacher thing” at the same time while not having my heart crack into two pieces.  

Sexy Neck and I decided that we needed to come up with a creative financial solution so that I could stay at home from work.  This involved selling our first “forever” home and finding a house with income.  This process took over a year and involved using our “fleece” to help us figure out where we should move to.  

Here was our fleeceImage

Fleece: The things we wanted in a house, our rankings plus all the houses we looked at.

What is a fleece? 

First, Sexy Neck and I believe that God has a plan for our lives… how can so many things be coincidences?

Second, there is a story in the Old Testament (before Jesus lived) about Gideon.  I am not a preacher so I will leave it up to God’s word.

Here is what it says:

Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised – look I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor.  If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.” (Judges 6:36-37)

My faith sometimes falters, my mind wanders, I get confused, but I know from experience that I can trust God completely.  

Today our house has been sold – signed on the dotted line. 

We have also created our “fleece” for our new home, praying that God will guide us the entire way.

Sexy Neck and I will now go look at some houses, rank them and see what unfolds.  We have 11 weeks to find a new place for our family of five to live.  Go God!
