What do you do when you can't sleep? When you wake up praying for your children and grandchildren?
We can browse social media and sometimes I confess I do. But we can also read the Bible and journal. 45 minutes later, I went peacefully back to sleep
You can see the 3 verses that spoke the loudest to me. Easy way for them to stand out is write in all caps.

How would you feel if you never did it?

A client was so ecstatic, he sent me a text and photo of his progress. Finally after all these years he is doing it. Praise be to God.

This page is from Daily in His Presence by Dr David Jeremiah. I try to read it every night and when I do, I sleep better.
One day, when our time has come, we all long to hear those words, "Well done good and faithful servant."
Are you living the life He called you to live so you hear those words? What's stopping you?

There is one thing that seems to be true. You are either in a valley, coming out of a valley or going into a valley. We can't jump from one mountaintop to another. The truth is there is growth in the valley. For one, we often grow closer to God during valley experiences as we lean on Him.
What Bible verses encourage you when you're in the valley?
What did you learn and grow from when you were in a valley?
Often we don't see it then when we are in the depth of troubles and depressions, but they are there.
Why talk about this now? I'm reading Job in my chronological reading guide and I have friends, family and coaching clients going through the valley. We all do. One lesson from Job is don't be like his friends. So how can we be there for our friends going through difficult times? We've all been there.

Today is an important day. Our Puerto Rican friends open gifts today because that's when the Wisemen brought their gifts to baby Jesus. It's celebrated more officially in the church world as Epiphany. We all need to experience a personal epiphany as we encounter Jesus.
Epiphany just by definition are those ah-ha moments. What was the last Epiphany you had? Ready for some new insight?
This is my prayer for each client I work with. I pray that they would experience some new insight that helps them in the moment and in their future to improve their life.

When those eyes look at you like that, all you want to do is be the best you can be for this little one.
How can I be the best grandma?
We have all made our mistakes as parents. No one gets it right all the time. Grandchildren are different. Blessings with no responsibility.
Yet we do sense some tiny responsibility as grandparents. We want a better world for our grandchildren. We want to guide them and model for them. We want to just love them and squeeze them. That's the stage I'm in.
How can I be the best grandma? Let's turn the tables. What coaching question would you ask me?

What do you want to happen in 2021?
Make it happen. Life is too short to waste another year.
My oldest client is so excited. He is in his late 70s and excited for the first time in several years. He has dreams and now an action plan to make it happen. At his age, there's no time to waste. I never seen him so enthusiastic for life.
Want that for yourself?

Hundreds of promises are given in scripture. Which ones do you need to cling to right now?
God has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. How can you draw nearer to Him?
This page comes from my devotional Daily in His Presence by Dr David Jeremiah. I went to sleep without reading it and woke up in the middle of the night. Now I can sleep peacefully in His arms while I cling to His promises.

So my word for 2021 is abide. I want to bear fruit. Abiding in His Word and in His love. Being fully present with God. Do you have a word for 2021? Let me hear it if you do.
That was the inspiration for my nail design and Erika did a fabulous job.
1¶“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
2Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
3Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.
4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
5I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
6If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.
7If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
8By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.
9As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.
10If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.
11These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

Most of us have good intentions. Then another month passes and we find ourselves giving up. This year can be different.
How many of you start reading Genesis and even make it through Exodus? Then you hit a road block at Leviticus?
I wrote this course and recorded 14 hours of video for this purpose - to give you an overview of the Bible so you can get past the hard parts and read it for yourself.
14 hours - that's it! Genesis to Revelation and walk away feeling like you can do this. The end result: you'll be able to hear from God more and hear better.
Check it out. The video, lecture notes and bonus pages for lesson 1 are available so you can preview the course.
Everyone and I mean everyone who has ever attended this live has gotten so much out of it. Now you can too from the privacy of your home, at your own pace. Read the testimonials if you don't believe me.

So I have a bucket list item I'm going to finally do in 2021 and I need your help to make it the best product out there.
I've always wanted to write a book and it's time. I want to write two books this year actually. The first one though will be a year long process and that's where you come in.
I want to write a Guide to a 1-Year Chronological Bible reading plan. With each day's assigned readings of about 3 chapters, I will provide a paragraph with a mix of study, devotional and thought provoking questions to help you get the most out of your reading. All you have to do is give me feedback each week.
At the end of the year, you will have the entire Bible read, grown in your communication with God, understanding of God and I will have a book I can finalize for publication.
Are you interested in seeing what it would look like? PM me for a sample.

New Year is always one of my favorite times of the year. It's like hitting the reset button.
Each year, my husband and I both set personal goals. We go through a 4-step process.
1. IDENTIFY the personal goal in an area we want to grow.
2. CREATE a way to measure the progress and success of those goals.
3. DESIGN a lifestyle to achieve them.
4. SHARE your goals with someone else to support and encourage one another.
So what are your personal goals for 2021? Have you gone through the 4-steps yet? Who have you told so they can support and encourage you?

Looking back at my 2020 planning calendar, every event after mid March canceled expect one and that one was done by zoom. It can make you wonder if it's even worth planning 2021. We have more unknowns than known making planning nearly impossible. This is extremely frustrating for us Type As. James' words have never seemed more poignant.
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring.
What is your life?
For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.
Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.
So how do we make plans?
The only thing I know for certain to write down are birthdays. Is that all that will come of this year and next - one year older?
I refuse to grow only one dimension. There is more to life than aging.
So as I turn the page on my calendar, I humbly ask the Lord for His will and how He would have me make use of the time He gave me. I will then process all this with my life coach who will help me get clarity and direction.
What about you?
What will you do?
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,
making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

Reality often hits hard. Once you know what you're dealing with, then you decide what things are within your control and then what can you do about it.
Our scale bit the dust. Umm, what does that say? 😳 Sometimes ignorance is bliss but eventually the truth catches up to you.
My clients are working through some of these same issues right now, and I don't mean just weight gain.
They are ready to come face to face with reality.
They are processing what's in their control.
They are creating a plan of action.
They are measuring their progress.
They are facing the truth and creating a life they want.
I am so proud and blessed to be a thought partner with them.
If you could use this kind of professional service, reach out to me. Lock in 2020 coaching rates today to create the life you want for 2021.

This is the best Christmas present.
I coached a new client Tuesday. He sent this email Wednesday. Edited for confidentiality.
"After a 7 + year pause, I have now...... Thank you for helping me break out of this locked closet!"
I am so thankful God is enabling me to use my skills, gifts and experience to help others.
It is still Christmas.

So easy to get down and depressed with the state of the nation, civil unrest, police being killed just for being police, lack of leadership, lack of appreciation from the city, the ongoing contract negotiations, the unknown, the unfairness, the injustice, the cancer, aging, death and dying...but I reflect as I look around my home at art depicting Noah, the nativity, and the cross, at the tree and the manger. I see the rainbow in the sky. I see the baby Jesus. I see the cross.
Where does my hope come from? People? Security in money? Our government? (Don't make me laugh).
My hope comes from His word, His promises, Christ's birth, death and resurrection. So I have peace in my soul.
I look to the example of Noah who obeyed and Mary and Joseph who were submissive. I look to Jesus who had compassion on us and loved us so much, He died for us. Nothing in the world changes that! My hope is in Him!
Funny thing is, if you got to this point in my post, I wrote this in 2014. Nothing changes. As Solomon said there is nothing new under the sun.

I went to a Christmas brunch yesterday morning where the 6 of us exchanged gifts. They called it a Yankee swap. Everyone brings one gift and draws a number. The person can select an unopened gift or steal a gift someone else already selected and opened.
One person got this Gooseberry Patch book full of Christmas traditions, gift ideas to make and Christmas recipes. I decided not to steal it and keep my peppermint cheese ball bowl.
So instead I'll ask you. Comment and we can shamelessly steal your ideas. 😁
What are your favorite Christmas traditions?
What are your favorite Christmas recipes or foods?
What are your favorite gifts to make or buy to give?

If only you could see our tree now. Only two wrapped presents remain after taking gifts to family, friends, neighbors and church.Now that there are only 2, our tree looks sad. It does make you ponder what Christmas is all about.
Is it giving presents?
Is it receiving presents?
Is it even about the presents?
Yes. Yes. Yes. But it is so much more.
There is joy in giving. There is joy in receiving. The far greater joy though is in Christ.
We all know the presents will be opened, put away and soon forgotten.
Yet Christ continues. That's the everlasting gift 🎁.
I'm curious. What is Christmas all about to you?
How do you show that?

Wouldn't it be wonderful to be equipped for 2021?

This course has been in the making since 2014 and each year I give it, I improve it. It started out as a 3-hour seminar, quickly grew to 5-6 hours. I've had numerous requests to record it. With 2020 like it was, I was only able to present it once - via Zoom. So I took the time to improve it once more, expand Revelation, and record 14 hours of video. As you have come to expect from me, I also created 123 pages of Lecture notes and 54 Bonus pages.
It's available now on https://boldhopewithlaurasanders.thinkific.com/
May it bring honor and glory to God and His Word.

Tis the season.
🎄Increased crime, specifically property thefts.
🎄Increased spending and credit card debt.
That's enough to depress you and me. It's true though. Holidays can be hard. With Covid and lockdowns, it's harder. Dinner alone never seems as lonely as it does this time of year.
🤔If you're going through difficult times, what can you do?
🤔What's one thing you can do to bring back some joy?
🤔How can you eliminate one stressor?
🤔Who can you reach out to with a phone call?
If you are having a difficult time finding hope, peace and joy, you can always call me.
Don't let someone else steal your hope, peace and joy or your packages.

The majority of our prayers are for our children; it doesn’t matter their age, from birth through adulthood, as Moms, we pray for our children. We want them to be successful whatever that looks like. It’s difficult to watch them struggle. It’s difficult to know when to help and how much to help. When they hurt, we hurt. We want so much more for them and yet life is hard. It’s even harder to watch them struggle. As Moms, we would take away their pain if we could.
So how do we function when they are not functioning well? How do we live the life God called us to live with all this going on in the background? It’s so distracting, almost deafening, but after a while, it just becomes white noise because its been going on for so long.
It’s common for Moms to feel helpless, worried, stressed and out of control when their adult children struggle. What I do is serve those Moms so they can transition to this new stage of life with wisdom and peace.
What makes me different is I have life experience, served as a Christian Lay Leader for 34 years and spent 2 years training as a certified Christian coach. Using my experience and skills, I have developed a program to work through the issues we face as Moms, issues like
I help divorced women, just like you,reclaim who they are, build an even better life than they imagined possible and open their heart to loving life again.
