I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying “Investing is Wealth” or maybe something like that, however; Investing goes far beyond you and your business – investing has a lot to do with YOU BOO! What do you want to accomplish, what do you want to do and what’s your mindset in getting it done.

I hate to admit this, but I was bad at taking time out to invest in me “especially my business” we’ll be so surprised at how lightly we take things when it comes to ourselves, our business, our health, our mind and our overall life.

You know, we put so much of our time into other things and other people; sometimes so much so, we forget about our own dreams and goals. How do you feel about your business? Are you taking out time to “invest” in it? I talk about this and about the time how I felt like I didn’t think “investing” money into my business was really for me to do.

So here’s today’s video – this is the last one so I hope it inspires and motivates you to invest in you. Let’s get Inspired together!

You know, I went on a tangent last week – I actually had something else in mind to post but after I got the – Gurrl Bye feeling and look from God.

I thought I’d share what dropped in my spirit about how we misuse the things that God has already given to us. The things that are already in our possession; you know those you prayed so earnestly for and now that you got it ——- Well, let’s just say the newness has worn off and now you’re asking for more….but should God be obligated to give us more, even though we hadn’t been faithful or used the first thing he gave us? That was my DILEMMA! YIKES!

Here’s today’s video below, I pray it encourage and motivate you. If you like it, please share it! Let’s uplift one another!!

(I’m hoping the music isn’t too loud – still working on getting those editing credentials, please bear with me…lol….smh)

EnSpired: Luke Mickelson, Making Beds So Children Can Sleep in Heavenly Peace

“No Kid Sleeps on the Floor in Our Town”

This is the motto of Luke Mickelson, whom founded the non-profit organization “Sleep in Heavenly Peace” and since its start in 2012, that motto has lived up to its standard.

Before founding ‘Sleep in Heavenly Peace’ a.k.a SHP, Luke Mickelson had a great life; a beautiful family and  booming career. He coached his children’s sports team, was an avid church goer and for downtime, he’d go fishing in the river by his home – Life was sweet as you can say for Mickelson until he received some disturbing news; news that would bring his “normal” life, into perspective.

Mickelson, had learned that a family in his community were struggling and one of the major struggles was that of a little girl, not having a bed to sleep on. The girl slept on her clothes every night, clothes that resembled that of a birds nest per Mickelson.

“This little girl had a nest of clothes; it looked like a bird’s nest – a nest she’d built as her bed. “It was such an eye-opener for me, I sat there in silence thinking. “Is this really what’s going on?” Luke Mickelson.

The situation pulled at Mickelson’s heart strings, so much so – he immediately jumped into action; to devise a plan to help other families/children whom may be in the same situation. Mickelson used the safety guideline and his daughter’s bunk bed as a prototype to start constructing bunk beds of his own; using funds out of his own pocket and with the help of recruited family and friends, Mickelson began buying the wood and supplies needed to begin his project.

Since its inception, the non-profit has built more than 1,500 free beds for children across America. So passionate about his new found career, Mickelson gave up his corporate job to focus on ‘Sleep in Heavenly Peace’ – a decision he doesn’t regret!

“I found that the need I have isn’t financial, The need I have is seeing the joy on kids’ faces, knowing that I can made a difference.

And rightfully so, as the first bed he made and delivered to the little girl with the bird’s nest bed; hugged her bed and wouldn’t let it go. A first memory that Mickelson would not soon forget, a memory that keeps him focused on his mission as he continues to make sure every child ‘Sleeps in Heavenly Peace.’
