You are only 1 Decision away from a totally different life. This quote by Charles Spurgeon has impacted my life, so I decided to start a podcast about it.
In my podcast, I explore the 3 foundations of the podcast which are Character, Leadership and Integrity. I will interview interesting people as they tell their story of their 1 Decision as well as give tips, encouragement, and understanding to help you make your 1 Decision that could change your life. Some interviews will be leaders who provide tools to motivate you to move forward, and I'll also provide some teaching opportunities, to help you know how to make a wise decision.
If you want more information on my podcast and my new leadership platform, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Early voting started today, October 24, 2022, and will end on Friday, November 4th. This election, as all elections are extremely important for many reasons. So please take time to vote.
If you live in Wise County, you can go to Elections | Wise County, TX, to get everything you need. From polling locations, days and times, to a sample ballot. There are several things on the ballot, besides the candidates, so understanding the ballot is very important, as well as knowing the candidates and what they stand for.
Texas Realtors, the organization that licenses realtors, has put together a voter's guide to help you know which candidates they support.
TREPAC, Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee interviews candidates all over the state. They are a bi-partisan organization, and base their choices on those candidates that support personal property rights, as well as personal integrity. If you are a property owner, you will want to support someone who protects your interests and works to keep taxes at bay.
To find out what candidates TREPAC supports in your area, you can go to www.texasrealtorssupport.com.
I love living outside of the big cities. I truly do.
We lived in the metroplex (DFW) for most of my life, then when we moved out to Wise County, discovered just how much fun it is to live in a place where almost every weekend, when the weather is good (and sometimes not so good) there is some sort of festival or fun thing going on.
Saturday we ventured out to a full day of visiting different festivals and events. The weather was beautiful so we needed to get out and see what was happening.
First, in Decatur, was the Biker Bash, hosted by Full Armor Church. We know the Pastor, Doc Dennis and his team, so going out to see what was happening there, was a must.
Then we headed north to Bowie's famous Chicken and Bread Days. We met a Bowie treasure and she shared the story of Chicken and Bread days. We had such a great time that I did an entire podcast about it. Take some time to listen, you will be glad you did as I share a tidbit of Texas history. As well, you will discover the grit of a true Texas hero. To view the podcast, go to https://rumble.com/v1mey2o-episode-9-the-legacy-decision.html.
It was a beautiful day, and the streets were full of antique cars, so my hubby really enjoyed it. There were food vendors, people selling their wares, a barrel train for the kiddos, and lots of other great stuff. Even a Fiddling Contest.
Then we rounded off the day by going to a fish fry. We live in a tiny town, called Alvord. We only have a Volunteer Fire Department, so they have a fish fry every year to raise money. I love helping sponsor, but we also attend every year. They have a silent, then a live auction, even auctioning off homemade cakes. I think the cakes are what brings in the most money.
It's always so nice to see our friends and neighbors, eat some good fish, and just enjoy the evening. Even watching the kids play ball out by the fire trucks.
We went home that evening tired, full, and happy.
We had no idea how wonderful it is to live in such an amazing community.
All the years we lived in a metropolitan area, we had no idea these things took place. We never knew that in one day we could visit 3 different towns with 3 different events, and meet so many precious people.
There are things like this going on all the time here in Wise and Montague Counties, almost every month, if not every weekend.
I am truly grateful for all the hard work and the heart it takes to do these events.
