7 Secrets Of a Confident Women..

1) A Confident Woman Knows She is Loved. Be rooted in God Have strong roots, no matter how hard you are shaken your roots hold strong. Take a step out of your boat of insecurity and say, "God loves Me."

2) A Confident Woman Refuses to Live in Fear. Hebrews 10:38 Don't let fear rule your life.

3) A Confident Woman Has a Positive Attitude. Being positive is a choice, not a Feeling! You have the power to be happy. A negative attitude makes you mean, not confident. You have to decide to change your attitude. You can be pitiful or powerful but not both. Today I begin again. I dare you to be positive!

4) A Confident Woman Refuses to be Defeated! Stop listening to what everyone else says. Do not be afraid to do what is in your heart (spirit).

5) A Confident Woman Avoids Comparisons--(Apply EVERYWHERE) All you get is misery if you keep trying to be something you're not. God has something for you.

6) A Confident Woman Takes Action... Agressive is NOT Possitive. We do not need to be masculine to be confident.

7) A Confident Woman Does Not Live in "If Only" or "What If". God is there for us. We need to move forward and not wish the past was different. Life is our biggest educator. If we wish things were different in the past, instead of dwelling on that, we need to not make the same mistakes. Learn from our past and move on.

Wow..It has been awhile..

Sorry for mot keeping up with the blogging..Alot has gone on this week..I have been babyitting and that takes up alot of my time and I have not been on the computer much..I am apart of serveral boards and I have not been on them much either..
Kids are liking school and that is really good..Aubrey is in the 4th and doing great. JJ is in 2nd and really liking it..Michael is k-5 and doing awsome..

I will be starting back at the gym on friday and really looking forward to that..I have also been keeping up with my workout..

I am posting another recipe that i tried and thought you all would like it.Enjoy..

Davy Crocketts

2 cans crescent rolls1 pound ground beef1 large onion chopped2 cans whole green chilis1 to 2 cups shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese (I prefer Sargentos 4 Cheese Mexican)1/2 cup Sour cream or to taste2 or 3 stalks of geen onion, choppedSliced black olives

Preheat oven to 375 degrees or the temperature required on the crescent roll can.

Saute ground beef until no longer pink.

Open 1 can of crescent rolls and separate dough into rectangles and place them at least 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Take 4 whole green chilis. Slit each chili down the length and open it up to flatten it. Lay one chili on each rectangle.

Using a slotted spoon, spoon the drained ground beef equally over the 4 rectangles.

Top each with chopped onion to taste - we put about 1/4 cup on each.

Top each with cheese - at least 1/4 cup.

Open second can of rolls and separate into rectangles. Gently lay a rectangles over each Davy Crockett. You don't have to stretch the dough down to cover the edges. The dough will bake down and cover most of it.

Bake as long as it says on the can to bake crescent rolls. I think that's about 10 minutes.

Let each person top their Davy Crockett with sour cream, chopped green onion, shredded chees and sliced olives. One is a complete meal for me, and they make great leftovers
