LIVING WOMEN IN A DYING SOCIETY

One of my most enjoyable experiences was bonding with Charlie – a special boy in our family! Looking forward to seeing he and Jessica again on this trip.

Living Life for others…

Sometimes you just need to go… go and do what’s in your heart!  I mean to really live the life that even you imagine for yourself. I guess that’s what I was experiencing on my tour in Sweden. On this trip I flew solo due to the fact that the timing to travel was right for me and wrong for everyone else.  However, in hindsight that’s the way it needed to be. Trust Him became my mantra everyday ~ trust in His grace and provision for each day of my journey.

Returning home I noticed something about my California Lifestyle. It’s funny how much we are influenced by our culture or even by the people that are around us on a daily basis.  For example, I live in Orange County and almost every time I’m asked to get together with a friend, we both start going down a mental list of our favorite restaurants.  That’s one thing people in this town will not give up, eating great foods and drinking California wines.  I don’t care how much we are all on a budget because of the recession, we always seem to find enough money to go out with friends or family, it’s just the California Lifestyle, even if we wear our finest and order soup! That’s just a small example of the Orange County social culture that we seem to adapt to, along with comfortable cars and beautiful homes, enjoying warm weather and the ocean breezes from the Pacific Ocean. I love my town, having lived here for about thirty-eight years now. You could say that it’s home for me and my family.

Living as a woman of faith, I have a strong desire to know God’s design for my life! On my journey I continue to realize that maybe it’s not just about me.  Maybe God is trying to show me that living life with others in mind and experiencing His love for people is a lesson I can’t afford to ignore. I have a desire to grow, getting rid of all the stuff “that I thought I needed” for living! After all, it’s just stuff, isn’t it?

I have realized something as I have been spending time in prayer…that the disconnection that we may feel at times, is not coming from God. It’s coming from us, not being able to hear and follow His Spirit well.  We have so much traffic in our lives to bring distractions. So I have asked God to show me how to follow Him and teach me to hear His Spirit daily. Join me!

Getting Younger: For Life!

Come on Ladies…treat yourselves well!

Most of us know what to do to keep ourselves healthy. There is enough information out there to keep us all informed. For example, Oprah, the Dr. Phil show, CNN, or even the Food channel, which is one of my most favorite shows. And how about all the great books that have been written on the subject. My personal favorites are The Real Age Makeover by Dr. Roizen or The Perricone Prescription by Dr. Nichols Perricone. These are some of the wonderful resources that we can use to keep us fit and healthy.

We all talk about the concept that God has given us purpose, or a divine destiny to fulfill his will through our lives. And we need our health and energy to experience the journey. Not to mention our children and family who depend on us to be there for them, guiding and supporting with love and wisdom. “Ladies we are valuable”!

So I encourage you to live with purpose, and value. It is worth the sacrifice in making good choices every time the menu is handed to you or when we are shopping for food at the grocery store. Even when friends have you over for dinner and make their favorite delicious fatty foods. Begin to think about your goals in life, and how you “will” achieve them!

Healthy living is a trade off, you trade the sweets for a desirable size, a burger and fries for energy and a 30 minute walk per day for feeling alive. I often call a friend, and say, “I need some oxygen” let’s go walk on the beach, meet you at Pacific Way in an hour! During my walk, “I feel like I’m alive”! It’s my moment of…. it’s my piece of the pie, it’s when I can feel His Presence. God is interacting with everything that we do…after all He
is the Giver of Life! Take the road of health, energy and self discipline, your gonna like the way you feel!

Our Home

Our Home is the foundation for the entire family, to be loved, to love, and to be strengthen and encouraged.  Laying a firm foundation doesn’t happen overnight.  In my foundation growing up I experienced disappointments and lack of trust.  I can’t even remember a time when one of my parents sat down and read to me or prepared me for my future.  My siblings and I were busy keeping up with school, cleaning the house, and finding comfort in one another through the break outs of domestic violence. It created scares in all of us that needed to be repaired, however these experiences caused each of us to bring change (with God as our source) in the raising of our own children.

Together with God (The Father to the Fatherless) helped us to build a good foundation in layers, day by day.  A homegrown child is nurtured at home by involved parents, who are raised for character and not just achievement, who values faith and family! The goal is to build strength in them so that they  can stand firm when they are ridiculed for whatever reason, when they got cut from a team, or when their boy friend or girl friend breaks up with them, feeling like the  ground beneath them has been shaken.

What Is a Homegrown child?  Organic parenting and the home court advantage begin by looking forward.  A hands on approach from toddler to adolescence, and even staying in close contact when they move away to college or take a job. Preparing them for life, from the ground up.  I’m reminded of that song “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King, that moves all of us when we hear it….I guess what I’m trying to say is that “it takes our presence in our children’s lives”, together with God’s principles and resources. Walking it out with them  on a daily bases, teaching by example through love, patience, and a open heart when mistakes are made.

Years from now, when your son or daughter heads off to college or moves into their first apartment and you bid him or her farewell with teary eyes and a hopeful heart, what do you want your child to be able to handle?  What kind of foundation would you like him or her to have? Can they still come to us with their experiences in life without us freaking out on them?

Remember a homegrown child isn’t known by what he does as much as by what he is. That’s an important distinction that can be developed only through time and parental involvement.  I would pray and still do for God’s wisdom and ability, His Super on my natural to bring forth the best in my son through “His” grace and understanding.  It’s never to late to get involved…after all God is our “Restoration!”  Be Brave!!

“Making a difference”

Speaker at Intersection…

What a great opportunity to speak at the Intersection, “A Bible-Based Gathering for the Business Professionals.”  The location was beautiful, we met at the Casa 425 Hotel in Claremont California.  Berna Swodeck spoke first on prayer, that she composed with depth, meaning and clarity.  Followed by Jacob Swodeck, one of the founders, sharing and giving direction for the day.  My brother Tim Storey was able to be there as well, to listen and bring support. “I was in my element working and exercising my gifts.”

I shared a motivational message called www.Godinteractingwithus.com. Bringing words of experience and supportive scriptures to my context. I wanted to talk about a brilliant concept of how God really does interact with us on a daily bases. And begin to think about it in these terms. He is truly there to support, empower and enhance our gifts as he sees fit. Tracking together with us at all times bringing understanding to those who ask, that is…. “To Get Online with God”.

The message was designed around three components, influence, integrity and attitude. Everyone influences someone. Each one of us both influencing and being influenced by others.  That means that all of us are leading in some areas, while in other areas we are being led.  No one is excluded from being a leader or a follower.  We can use our influence in a very positive way in every transaction of business, however not without having integrity.  The most important ingredient of leadership is “Integrity”.  The dictionary defines integrity as “the state of being complete, unified.”  When I have integrity, my words and my deeds match up.  I am who I am, no matter where I am or who I am with.  So we want to influence with integrity along with maintaining a sound, healthy attitude.  Sounds tough I know.  However, their is an even greater component available to us…”God interacting with us!” Together with God as our partner (covenant relationship through Christ) we have His unlimited resources available to us.

I shared one of my favorite scriptures in the book of Matthew, chapter 6, it reads.

“Our Father in Heaven”, hallowed (holy, holy) be your name (for there is none like you, in your Greatness and Glory).

Then His prayer immediately proceeds to invite God into our present circumstance…

“Your Kingdom Come,” (it’s Power and Presence)

“Your will be done,” ( execute your word here) on earth (where my world needs your Presence, Power, and works…) as it is in Heaven (for an invasion of Heaven is needed where I live)!

When we begin to understand that integrity is maintained when we as “people” working together with others “truly care”, about what?  Other people!  Our spirit must be good.  David writes in the book of Psalms,

“Create in me a pure heart, Oh God,  and renew a steadfast Spirit within me…” As He shows us His love and how to care for others, we just created a win, win situation for both parties.  Because at the end of the day, His Presence (omnipresence) loves both the saved and the unsaved.  His Attitude shines through our lives. Let’s not forget why He died, for the “Unjust”!


Live life.

I want to help you expand your understanding of “The Principles of Life”. My style is to share from my experience and personal challenges. Through my relationship with God and the scriptures, I want to demonstrate through practical teaching how you can acquire God’s strength and increase His power in your every day life! Anyone can live, but few live accordingly to his Amazing design. I have a passion to see your life be enveloped by His love, strength and power!

Still small voice

This summer I had the opportunity to travel with my nineteen year old son Stefan to Tulsa, Oklahoma.  He was on his way to register for his second year at ORU (Oral Roberts University).  A good friend of Stefan’s backed down at the last-minute due to his work schedule, so I offered to go on my first college road trip with my son. This created hours and hours of sharing conversation about life, God, and even Barack Obama running for President.

I was grateful for the opportunity because spending time with your young adult children is so important to their future and decision making! Learn to listen carefully and you will pick up their views and concepts…then with God’s Spirit you will be able to  guide and share the wisdom that you have learned through your own life experiences. You can be honest about your victories as well as mistakes.

Our children are our greatest treasures in life…treat them with respect and they will share their lives with you…and you will be a partner to that “still small voice”!

Always in LOVE…Paige
