Yesterday was a great day. I worked on my Go Fund Campaign. It is moving slow, but I am determined to continue on. I was chatting with a friend Monday evening, and she agreed with me as we chatted, about tough financial times in the past, but as we look back we are reminded that we made it through.
I think back to the time when I became a single mom, and lived on $200 per week. The loss of my job a few years ago, walking in the snow, and in the rain to go to the bank, and pick up my groceries. The loss of my car, because I could not make the payments, and many more struggles, but I made it through.
A constant time of living on the edge of homelessness, and yet staying off the street, and moving forward.
It seems I was born with the buzzword of today. The word is resilience. If you are not familiar with the word resilience it is defined as; the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness, the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
No matter how hard I fall, or what happens I am able to eventually get back up. I may fall apart in the background, confess my struggle to people close to me, and then get back up and continue on. I may cry and not understand, but I continue on.
During the worst of times, I launched Relationships of the Heart, published 2 books, and I traveled to Tanzania, India, Japan, and Kenya.
AND now, I am stepping back into the public eye once again. This time it will be online and offline. God and I had a short meeting on Sunday during a message from my Pastor. I had one conversation about this with a friend. I am in a season even if I am low on finances, I will not give up, and I will not quit.
I will move ahead with the out of state radio interview, the ad placements for my book in 3 counties, and allowing the radio station to place my live interview on a morning show, and the evening news.
The enemy of my soul, always fights against me in one area of my life when I take a leap of faith. The area is in finances. I will not quit, and I will not back down, even when I receive messages telling me that I should quit.
I did not walk through this fire to quit at the age of 60.
My Grandmother lived to be 101, and she reminded me when she was in her 90’s, “Nancy do not wait to do what you know you are to do. Do it while you are able.”
AND so I continue on in the battle. Cherishing my Grandmother’s words, and my growing up years with my Father, who constantly said, “Don’t quit Nancy. Yes, you can do this.”
Onward I go, even when I do not know how everything will work out. I hope you will do the same, in the middle of your struggles and uncertainties.

Nancy Founder and Leader of Relationships of the Heart
I am on day 5 of writing copy and crowdfunding. (For details see previous post.) It is Saturday morning, and I am surprised I still have words pouring out of me to write.
On day 5 of my 12 hour days, I am still pushing through with my crowdfunding and all kinds of small snippets of writing.
If you are a writing and you desire to publish, it will be necessary for you to be part of the promotion of your book. It is the world we live in!
Yesterday I wrote the following;
This is an excerpt from my latest community news. When we least expect it the doors swing open, and opportunities arrive.
I smile and I laugh, when I reflect on the photo below. I am the oldest daughter of 5 children. When I think of what I am stepping into today I am amazed.
I had no idea when I was 10 years old, surrounded by my siblings, holding my brother, that someday I would travel outside of the USA equipping and training leaders, write 2 books, and design a conference. BUT God…he knew what was up ahead for me. Sigh…I am thankful.
Today’s surprise is when I connected with an out of state radio station to advertise my book on a website. The reply was more than I requested. Advertisement on their website, all paper copy and radio ads were quoted at an affordable price.
The surprise- At no additional cost I will have the opportunity to be interviewed live by phone for a daily show, along with recorded interviews on 2 additional programs.
Everything I do cost money, including the roof over my head. If you are interested in giving simply go to this link or message me for additional ways to give.
In today’s world, writing can take shape in various forms, and formats. In whatever format you are writing it is still true, to become better at our writing, we must write, write, and write again.
