We are so happy to see that our new Resiliency Fund for Star Scholars is already making an important impact!
The Resiliency Fund provides support for financial roadblocks that arise while WWIN Scholars are earning their education, such as emergency car maintenance, childcare, laptops for school, health-related expenses, and more.
We received these words of gratitude from our Scholar Berlyn, who has an early morning class and needed before-school care for her boys: "I just wanted to take a second and say how grateful I am for the resiliency grant I received for before school childcare. It has been such a relief not to have to worry about where my boys are going to go before school or how many of my 8 am classes I can miss before I start falling behind. They love the program and always have fun when they attend. Thank you again for helping me and other women out there succeed!" You are so welcome, Berlyn!! ⭐️
Anyone else has a love|hate relationship with the commitment of working out🤔
It's always hard for me to start, then I kind of love it (but once I do it constantly for over 21days) here we go again🤷♀️
Cualquier otra persona tiene una relación de amor y odio con el compromiso de hacer ejercicio regularmente🙋♀️ *Tag a mama that needs some motivation*
A lot of you guys have been asking about Heston’s footwear. I give you @myrobeez
We were fortunate enough to get the first pair as a gift during my shower. We were gifted the classic boots - incredible warmth + quality; lasted all winter.
The one you see him wearing here is the Robeez Soft Sole Beau - which I purchased from @welldotca for the summer. Heston never keeps his shoes on, so this pair hugs just above his ankles and keeps them in place. It’s so great - highly recommend their line.
👉🏿👉🏿👉🏿 to see the struggles as Heston tries to remove them hehe.
I love margaritas, but admittedly they are not the healthiest cocktail and are usually loaded with sugar. Enter my friend Caroline’s healthier, but just as tasty swap. This new and improved tequila drink has less than a 1/3 of the amount of calories and sugar from a traditional margarita! Lucky for you, she agreed to share the magic recipe. You can thank me later.
.8 oz favorite tequila (@espolontequilaitalia)
.16 oz bottle of kombucha (@gtskombucha )
.1 whole lime squeezed
.Splash of favorite seltzer (@drinkbai )
Mix together, makes 6 servings - top each off with an extra splash of seltzer.
Go get your weekend 💃🏼

Our little town was reminded this week just how precious life is and how things can change in the blink of an eye.
Whatever feels heaviest to you right this minute, whatever is taking up the most brain and heart space, is it worth it? Does it matter that much? Is it worth you being pulled and distracted from the things in your life that really matter? Do you even want to give that particular burden that much of yourself? Of your relationship with your husband? Your kids? Your friends? Your home?
Take your life back, friends. Take your heart back from worry. Take your head back from the priorities other people have made you think are important. Take back your choice
to live your life however you see fit and not feel guilty.
Just be sure to live. Live with your people, not your problems. (Prov 4:23)

NEW BLOG POST 👆🏻
My spiritual awakening happened the day after I was let go from my first corporate job— My boss sprung the news on me, halfway through the work day—I felt like I was underwater struggling to hear the words spill from her mouth— hoping I was hearing it wrong.
But I wasn’t. “Corporate has eliminated your position… they’re letting you go” I remember staring across the desk at her— watching her lips move but not really hearing what she was saying. All I could think was, “Why let me work half the day??” I guess this is what working for a big company was like, in the end.
I was just another body, in a business bigger than me. A business that cared about making money. A business who no longer saw the need for my position— a business that no longer wanted to pay out a 40,000 salary.
Everything is about money, in big businesses. Nonetheless, I took it personal. I was defeated, and feeling like I had once again failed. I packed up my desk, in a cliché’d cardboard box, walked down the steps to my car and remembered all the times I had watered those damn pansies in the window boxes. I was sad, but I don’t even know why– I didn’t even like that job, actually I hated it. It made me pretty miserable, but nonetheless, I drove all the way home through the tears and fear of what came next– Like the upcoming mortgage payment on the house I had just bought. I was overwhelmed. I never saw this shit coming— and I didn’t have a fucking plan.
This was a blindside. (LINK IN BIO)
