F.O.C.U.S. Focus On Creating Ur Success -Through Faith- Part II


By Jeaninne Belton Williams
I want to start off by saying that, “faith comes by hearing and hearing comes by  the word of God (Romans 10:17KJV) ; and now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1KJV).” “For we know that God works all things for good, for those who love him and called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28 NIV).” How do you put these scriptures into action and help you focus on creating your success through faith? But more importantly, bring honor and glory to God.  What are you hoping for today?  What are you seeking God for at this very moment?  It takes trust and complete faith that God will bring every one of your dreams and desires into fruition.

MY PET WORLD: How to stop a small dog from being mischievous when left alone

Dear Cathy,

We have an 11-year-old dachshund named Schnitzel. Whenever we leave home for more than an hour or so, she pulls down clothes, pulls the Kleenex box off the table and pulls the tissues out or grabs the end of a toilet paper roll and has a grand old time pulling that out too. What can we do? - Lloyd, Tucson, AZ

Count It All Joy

 By Jeannine N. Williams

Have you ever been told by your family, friends, religious folks, and people in the church, “to count it all joy” when you are in a midst of a major life storm? This phrase is biblical and it’s in the book of James 1:2-3. The King James version of the bible states, “my brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diver temptations. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.”

 By Jeannine N. Williams

When life throws you a curve ball, a challenge, or situation that causes you to lose your focus. Take a step back, examine the situation, from multiple perspectives.  And brainstorm solutions and develop a pros and cons list. But more importantly, think logically and not emotionally.  This will help you, think clearly and hear that little voice inside of you. That little voice inside of you, tells you exactly, how to resolve the issue(s) at hand.

Ask Lansingnites where to find the best cheesecake and they will tell you that the Everything is Cheescake truck can be found at Friday through Sunday between 1 and 5 pm at 4400 S Martin Luther King Jr., Blvd in Lansing, MI.  When Everything is Cheescake posts a menu, social media erupts with orders and they are usually sold out before the end of the day.  If you have experienced their rich, fluffy and creamy desserts you know how decadent they are.  So we wanted to know where the magic was created and who held the miraculous “most delicious cheesecake” wand.
