God Put a Burden on My Heart

I receive so many emails…

Each and every day wanting to answer each one personally.  I REALLY want to answer each one personally.  There just aren't enough hours in the day.

God has put such a burden on my heart for people who struggle every single day just to make it through the day.  I used to pray every day:
"Lord, if there is a lesson you want me to learn, PLEASE tell me, I will learn it." 
"Lord, if there is something you want me to do that I am not doing, PLEASE tell me, and I will do it." 
"Lord, if there is any thing I can do to make money to help pay the bills and feel productive, PLEASE tell me how, and I will do it." 
There were many, many prayers such as this, lots of tears, lots of Doctor visits, and debt that you cannot begin to imagine.
Finally, after much prayer, and literally fighting for my life for so many years, God did answer my prayer.  And it took my 35 year old son just a couple of months ago (when I was a little down, and still remembering the "lost years") to tell me; "Mom, God DID answer your prayers!"  "It wasn't in your time, but it certainly was in His time!"
Matt was right!  If I had not been through all that I have for the last 30 years, I would not be right here, right now, with a huge following of women who want help and encouragement…. and certainly "JOY"!  They want something to live for, a hobby they love, and a way to make some extra income.  I can certainly help you with that!
I have been praying "The Prayer of Jabez"  for 11 years now.  I pray it at least once per day — and sometimes two or three times. (You can read the prayer here on my blog:  Well, every single time I prayed this prayer and got to the point where it says:    "That You would enlarge my territory, and that your hand would be with me" ,  I would think…How in the world can God expand my territory?  At that time, I could hardly even make the 30 minute drive to Greenville, SC, without being in severe pain.  So, how in the world could He expand my territory when I couldn't travel anywhere?? 
Well, I want to tell you something that totally amazes me beyond words.  God is soooo good, He is soooo wonderful, He has blessed me in soooo many ways!  Do you know that in the last four weeks, there have been people on my website and my blog from over 30 different countries?!!  I receive emails from them.  They say that I inspire them.  It isn't me….but God "is" using me, and for that I am so grateful.
As far as "Joy" goes…that can only come from God.  For Christmas, my husband gave me two silver chains.  I wear them every single day.  On the oval one (with a heart in the center) he had imprinted: "SHMILY", which stands for: "See How Much I Love You", and on the other tag is printed "JOY".  Joy is a very important word for us.  We pray for it every day, and no matter what our circumstances are, we search for it in every single thing…"It is There!…God gives it freely!"


By The Way…Steve had this Necklace Made for Me From:
Check out her site — I LOVE It!!! 


You are in my heart and in my prayers!  Don't ever, ever, ever give up!  God is there to love and care for you…as well as giving you "JOY"!

Watch my newsletters to find out when the membership site will open (probably in about one month), and also when the business class will start!
JOY and Blessings … Nancy

Life is a Gift…

Life is a Gift – Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fultill it…

This spoke volumes to me… I thought it might mean something to you too!

Life Is A Gift

Today before you think of saying an unkind word–
think of someone who can’t speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food–
think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife–
think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.

Today before you complain about life–
think of someone who went too early to heaven.

Before you complain about your children–
think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep–
think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive–
think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job–
think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–
remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–
put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.

Life is a gift – Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fulfill it.

A Joyous Life…

"A Joyous Life?" By, Nancy Alexander

Is Joy More Important Than Happiness?

A dear friend told Steve, my husband, several years ago that JOY was more important in life than happiness.  He was right!  He is right!  You can't find happiness without joy


James 1:2-6, 12  says… "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.  If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."  

"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who know him."  


God has chosen to anoint us with Grace, Joy, and Happiness these last two years.  Steve and I both carry small silver pocket stones which are soft and smooth from our handling with the word "Joy" inscribed upon them.  These stones remind us each day that we have been given the most amazing gift we might ever hope to receive.


We are happy and joy filled every single day.  God is blessing our lives beyond our imaginings with each other and with our wonderful family.  Our boys have chosen Godly, beautiful women as wives, and they have given us grandchildren who definitely know the definition of JOY much more than most could ever hope!

We are blessed with an online business which includes a new coaching club which definitely has God's hand upon it!  This new coaching site, "Best Of Nancy"  is really an answer to prayer.  I have been given the awesome opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of so many women.  Some of these women face health problems such as I did for so many years.  To be able to help them set up businesses and sell online is amazing!


I want to thank each of our new members in "Best Of Nancy", and for all of our friends who have been beside us as we travel on this remarkable journey.  We aren't there yet…we truly believe the best is yet to come!  We truly believe God has amazing plans for our lives.  In the meantime, as we travel this road, we are filled with immeasurable JOY!
