What a wonderful addition she and her store are to the Westfield Countryside Mall in Clearwater, Florida
In the song, the lyrics refer to “flying”. Although not entirely correct aerodynamically, calling someone the “wind beneath [your] wings” is equivalent to calling him/heryour support or reason for doing or accomplishing something.

There are some women, when they become mothers experience an evolution in their life, a change that manifests on the outside because it was within them all along. As the saying goes, "You had it in you all along." Sometimes it takes the birth of a little child to bring about what is within. Increased flexibility, strength and power, endurance. Physical mind training, core training manifests an outpouring of emotions and movement. This movement is designed to create the space for mother and baby to uphold the beauty of the gift of life. Long Time Sun is an Irish blessing, my son's birth song. Our children shine their light everywhere, not just on areas where light is needed, but they require fuel and tender loving kindness to continue to express the gift of love and light within them.
When my son was taken from me without warning on October 17, 2013, I held the intention that this would never happen to another mom or child again. I set out to understand who? what? where? when? how? and in a word, terrorism.
His birth song, Long Time Sun, is an Irish blessing. I also set an intention with him at approximately 7:30 PM while at Morton Plant Hospital. I asked for the song Long Time Sun to be played when I delivered him and held him on my chest for the first time sun. I recall stating, "I'm having this baby by 8:00 PM." and everything aligned, By Thy Grace CD played angelically in the hospital room, our physician arrived just in the nick of time, our nurse and Doula were "on point" and mom and dad and at 8:00 PM out he came. At that exact moment, played Long Time Sun, all on it's own.
This second intention, I set included that this would never happen to another mother and child again. That's when I was introduced to human and sex trafficking. That's when I experienced discrimination for mental health issues and I was treated like I didn't matter. I was treated like my complaints about computer invasion and fraud and identity theft were "imaginary and in my head" (per police report, St. Pete Police) and so... from summer 2013, when I worked in Pinellas County Schools, after school program in partnership with the Suncoast Y, I learned "the difference" which was my prayer.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can and the wisdom to know the difference. The difference is the Department of Children and Families eliminated the family law justice system.
October 17, 2013 - ? eliminating terrorism, begins with eliminating communism and this also ends human and sex trafficking, ID theft and fraud; upholding the laws within our beautiful state. As a certified business coach, I am so grateful that I continued on my path so I can continue to let my light shine.
In 2015, Father Baker appeared to me in a vision. I was parked at Houghton College parking lot. His appearance was so crystal clear and he spoke to me giving me 5 steps to do to reunite with my son.
As I watched this beautiful video, what I see if the magnificence of my birth. Born just around the corner from this beautiful shrine, I was a preemie and I spent the first three months in an incubator. As evidence of how our soul traveled, my first home that I designed is a mirror image of this beautiful shrine.
I didn't see inside until spring 2015; however when I did there was not one place within that you could stand or sit without seeing an angel or cherub. The outside is the same colors as my living room was and the cherub border and collection of angels brought warmth to my living room.
The den and kitchen contained cloud wall paper and more fairies and angels. The entire shrine is so incredibly peaceful and so was my first home. It's amazing how incubator babies appear like they are only staying within a very small space, but I believe my soul spent a great amount of time in the OLV Shrine. I hope you enjoy this video. If you were at my home on Iris Street once the designing was complete, I believe you will see exactly how it made you feel, when you watch this video. Enjoy!

Nothing but the truth
Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God? We have all heard these words. They are asked of every witness about to testify in a courtroom. In addition to responding positively to this crucial question, witnesses are called to place a hand on the Bible. All of this is to try to ensure that they will be HONEST. But despite this oath, some witnesses lie. We call that crime perjury, and it carries a severe penalty because someone's innocence or guilt may be hanging on the sworn testimony.
Proverbs 10:18 tells us, "Lying lips conceal hatred." Just as dishonesty is an act of hatred, so is honesty an act of love. Ultimately, our lies end up hurting others and damaging our integrity. Whether in the courtroom or in everyday life, we must always strive to tell "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth." Proverbs 10:18-21

and I am reflecting on the state of Florida health. Simon Sinek speaks of leadership in many of his videos; this video is filled with effective communication & passion. On the press page you see that the state of Florida is ranking #1 in identity fraud and theft and human trafficking and sex trafficking. These numbers are a reflection of the state of Florida's health. And this must change for our children and our children's children including mine. Leaders are welcome to join me as we create blueprints for success.
and I recall Celine Dion taking her career to Las Vegas. This same year I was trained and certified as a health and life coach in Atlanta, GA. I visiited Marietta Georgia for the very first time. I took Marta and taking a train and a city bus from the airport was a big deal. Traveling from Fl to ATL and putting myself back in the driver's seat of my life put my career on the right path, for it was in 2007 I was given the most beautiful gift of a son.
It was a as though I aligned all of my thoughts to receive the gift being given to me. It was less than one year after I read the book The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. It's such a joy and a pleasure to bring that feeling of "aliveness" to others with passion and group facilitation.
Celine Dion's inspiration and movement is another example of how God expresses through each of us.
and I can assure you that this man's story is worth watching! We are all stories in the making! Watch this one to the end.
and I encourage you to stay tuned to I am sitting across from God blog this summer as I announce upcoming events titled What's your life's blueprint? These events are designed to gather together to design your blueprint for success.
The first event titled What's Your Life's Blueprint? will take place at the NEW community and college library on the St. Petersburg Clearwater campus. Watch for an upcoming registration calendar so that you may register in advance. Seating is limited.
I encourage you come alone. You may bring a friend, but this event is one of those events where you are completely welcome just as you are. You do not have to dress in any special way, and you are welcome exactly the way you are. The environment is free of judgement.
Florida is experiencing a spiritual evolution. As a certified and trained coach for non profit businesses and individuals, I am trained as an educator and facilitator. We will help each other move through what has recently taken place in the Florida public school system. We will help each other set intentions, goals and action steps. We will not focus on challenges, but instead the intended outcome.
You will see fears subside, you will see miracles happen, children and parents reunited and changes in the mental health system that include eliminating discrimination. If you or someone you know is experiencing hate, human or sex trafficking, ID theft or fraud or feels suicidal or homicidal, they have experienced something that brings you down to a place where God can lift you up. God works through people. If you feel led to come, it may be because you are going to be a source of inspiration and love for someone, or someone is going to do the same for you.
These group facilitation events are intended for group coaching and not one to one support. They are for inspiration and movement. As I continue to share inspiration, you will discover that God uses us to fulfill a purpose. And when we use our gifts and talents to fulfill our purpose, then our life and the lives of others benefit.
I hope you will join me in our state of Florida "health talks" as we change the state of Florida health to a more promising future for our children and our children's children.
and this song will always be dedicated to my little son, Forrest. Every single beautiful word reminds me of him and the children. It's like the moment he and I came together, I was re prioritizing my life, setting goals, and action steps and preparing my life to accomplish what is necessarily for God's work. It's not just the first time, it's the second, third or fourth time, God has nudged me and reminded me to study law. It was my first marriage and divorce, starting and ending a computer repair business, and starting and ending a career in the Florida public school system... God has again reminded me that it's the study of his word and of the law that is God's priority for me and for the children. So today, this day, I thank God for my training, and my preparation for if I would have listening to the "whisper' or the voice within the first or second time, I would not have had to experienced one of life's 4 X 4's where the law was used to hurt us and to separate us. The state of Florida generously paid for my Master of Arts degree in human resources training and development, and adult education and I am certain that once again, I will study and experience identity restoration with the help of God for their is a need for our beautiful little son to not ever have the law used to separate him from his mama. I am quite certain this plan is God's perfect plan for staying staying inspir-ed! is what we must do. I hope you will participate in the upcoming blueprint for success training scheduled to take place at St. Petersburg College's Clearwater campus and take a few moments to watch Denzel Washington's inspiring video on the home page. One thing I am positive of is that there is a law program that is going to truly benefit from me taking all of my research and education on the current state of Florida's health and children and families and applying what I have experienced and what my son has experienced and ensure that the laws are changed to protect the innocent, the unexpected, and those who trust the state government to help them and in return have been put into the justice system.
Isaiah 9:6 New International Version (NIV)6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

This song dedicated to the Bush family in loving memory of Barbara Bush.
Change reveals us. Below is my five year old son separated from me October 17, 2013. Identity theft and fraud took his bedroom, his home, his mom, his friends, his gym membership and his life as he knew it. Another term for it, exiled.
Steve Connell's passion is a reminder of the impact of having the right insurance plan. His passion reminds me of the importance of having compassion and passion for others. In Florida, where the fraud and identity theft claims are equally high to the numbers of human and sex trafficking, it's clear that change has revealed the state of Florida's health. Florida's economy has impacted me. See PRESS page
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can and the wisdom to know the difference. The serenity prayer.
In Proverbs, chapter 10, we are given a list of the benefits of being a just person. In this chapter, a just person is one who is fair, right, moral and honest and truthful. We read that a just person not only receives blessings, life, wisdom, and joy; he or she, by acting justly, also fulfills God's will.
Throughout the New Testament, Jesus tells his followers that his way is the just way. The parables of the good Samaritan (see Luke 10:29-37) and the unforgiving servant (see Matthew 18:21-35) are reminders of this. Living as a just person may not be easy, but it is what Christ asks of his followers. Proverbs 10
I am part author, speaker, teacher and student and I am all mom. What I enjoy most about teaching and speaking is looking into the audience and seeing a reflection of God. I am Elizabeth and my name means "consecrated to God". I have been writing since elementary school. I am a highly sensitive em-path, which means I often feel the experiences of others so much that I have to be careful about my environments, relationships and friendships because there are times when sensitive people turn to addictions to cope with their sensitivity. I have learned over the years how to train my spirit, mind and body and I believe that the arts are an amazing creative outlet to express empathy. Caring without co dependency. Meditation, fitness and art help me to preserve my child like consciousness that manifests solutions where there are needs.
