When It Comes To Your Life – Which Dog Are You?

MarvaeComfort Zone0 Comments

Invisible fences are common where I live – a way to ensure that pets stay where they are supposed to without putting up an expensive or unsightly fence. My neighbor has two dogs that enjoy roaming in the front and back yard as they wish -Jack and Lucy. Foxes are also quite common in my neighborhood. Prior to moving to Tennessee, I am not sure I had ever seen a fox up close. My husband and I frequently see foxes moseying down the street or traipsing through our back yard. We’ve even had a fox make himself comfortable on our … Read More

Sitting down face to face with another coach is a rare thing for me. Oh, I have dozens and dozens of coach friends in the US and abroad and we talk; just not here in Chattanooga. That’s why having lunch with a fellow coach here in Chattanooga this week was such a blessing. Spending time with someone who truly understands the life of a coach and what coaching is all about is like that first cup of coffee on an early morning; an energizing boost! You know your lunch adventure is a good one when it begins to bump up … Read More

Coaching seemed like a useful, fascinating, and inspiring way to accomplish that goal. In the various leadership roles I’d held over my 23 plus years in ministry and business, … Read More

From the time I was a little girl I liked doing things myself! Independent is an understatement! I had big ideas, big plans, and asking for help was always a last resort!

Bradley and Marvae on their wedding day

My husband and I did some non-traditional things in our wedding. For those who know us well, this is not surprising! My favorite out-of-the-ordinary thing we did was braiding three cords together as the pastor read Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 which says: Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, … Read More
