LIVE your passion: Profiling one cool Chic

There are a  few woman I am constantly INSPIRED by,  look up to and amazed at how they do it all.

My curiosity is always peeked on what they are going to do next. Their life is exciting, their creativity ongoing but most of all…their hearts overflowing.  Their passion is seen, not just heard. They make a difference, not just chitter chatter about it.

One of these cool chics is...Alison Storm. Wow.

Her Passion: Water of Life , changing one isolated village at a time by building fresh water wells.

How she has lived out her passion: Alison has flown around the world to India flying xxx miles away, leaving her hubby & little boy Sammy for the sake of others. Four plane rides later, Alison  reaches India to witness and hear the stories of those in need of fresh water and support . She breathed life into the voices of the children there by sharing their story.  She has brought their message back {Listen Here, it’s awesome}, encouraging us to hear them and make a difference.

Alison trecked to the isolated villages to meet the people & help with them getting a new Fresh Well for their water supply. Ya never know what you’ll find on the way!

What does Making A Difference Look Like? I love hearing hearing about individuals, their story and what they have overcome. Below left  is Shanti, who learned how to “Face time” and in such a better place now having  fresh water daily. Among others, Alison also met Jyothsna, who has  tremendously been impacted by Water of Life. She now is able to make $300 a month as a trained seamstress. She currently sends the organization $50 of her hard earnings funds back to help other children in need. Jyothsna’s dream? To become a doctor one day.

Immersed in their culture, Alison received her first Henna tattoo, endured mosquito bites galore, laughed &  connected with the other girls.

THE BEST is still coming

Thanks to Water of Life, helping their dreams of freedom and fresh water become a reality.  How rewarding is that?

How to Remember Your Blessings

August 10th, 2014 · My Favorite Things

journal

Lindsey’s kelly green blessings journal

Remember that time when you needed a friend and your phone randomly rang soon after by your bestie or sibling?

Remember when you asked for something to come true but it didn’t? Time passed and you found out why and what a blessing it was!?

Remember your business had challenges and roadblocks that stalled your steps? Later on your wildest dreams came true when the timing was right?

 How do you remember ALL your blessings, L I T T L E or BIG?

EASY…write those suckers down~

A few months ago I decided to start my BLESSINGS journal. I felt it would help me with the challenges I faced ahead to see how my past was answered. Instead of writing a long drawn out journal, I’ll write the date or season along with ONE-THREE+ sentences on the blessings I’ve noticed. When life is tough, it’s hard to remember what has been given to you and reminds you to hold on, the blessing is on it’s way. You just can’t see it yet.

It can be a new person that has crossed your path. That person can lead to meeting another person that can be awesome in your life and creates huge value. It can be finding some extra money you did not expect or even answered prayers you’ve been working on. Funny how in the few months I’ve started my journal, my entries are getting more and more.

It is such a joy and LAUGH reading back my blessings. Everything I prayed about seemed to take some time. And then suddenly one day it was taken care of by itself.  These have been relating to both  tough decisions and little ones…from life prayers to helping me find a great computer person or my California friend & family visiting me at Christmas time when I need it that year. Truly Amazing.

Example Entry: {I write messy & fast} Desired a later Sunday service at my church. Later on, it was announced a new one was starting:

note

 

Funny how sometimes “L I T T L E  blessings are BIG ones in disguise

Give it whirl & see what happens. It’s actually pretty cool to read back and see all the blessings that have been given. For me, it has made me a more patient person knowing I can’t see what’s on other end but know God has my back. He’s kinda cool like that.
