Defeating the Cycle of “Stinkin Thinkin” and Learned Emotions

Hi, I am Stephanie, and I am my own worst enemy. I am harsh, demanding, and critical of myself.  I will put myself down and call myself horrible names. My mood changes rapidly, depending on how I think someone thinks about me. I am easily offended.  On any given day, I can rotate between feelings of shame, unworthiness, and loneliness. I care what people think of me.  I care so much what people think of me that I do my best to live up to certain expectations but fall short EVERY TIME. Sweet friends, please tell me I am not alone in this thinking!…

I am so excited to announce today that I have (FINALLY!) finished the free printable scripture cards I talked about a really....LONG...time ago.  (Honestly, I don't know why it took me so long).

30 Days to Success: A Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving Success in 30 Days

This time, though, I think I've had something good come out of all of this thinking, and I wanted to…

The #1 Reason You’re Not Succeeding at Your Goals

I seem to be a quitter. At not quite thirty years old, I've been reflecting on my years since high school and realizing that I've started a lot of things, but I've yet to become what I'd call successful in business or in my financial life. And as I've come to this realization, I've also had to recognize that part of the reason I am not yet successful is because I've quit so many things. When things don't explode with popularity as fast as I want them to or if my bank account doesn't grow as fast as I want…

Courageous is LIVE!

I have to admit I am SUPER distracted today. I am excited and in pain from my back and sick with a cold all at the same time. Here is the exciting (and most important!) thing though: I was on a break at a retreat on Saturday when I discovered that my new book Courageous is live on Amazon, and I've been trying to promote like crazy across all channels ever since.  Then this morning I discovered that the book is live on the Barnes & Noble website (on sale, no less!), so whenever Amazon runs out I am checking the…
