1st Post for 2015… yaaaay!!!

I’m back! It’s been quite a while since I’ve written and published a blog post.  I fell off my blogging schedule, had a baby, and wrote a book (The Life Map) all the while feeling guilty for not keeping up with my blog 🙁  I’ve been encouraged by many not to worry about having fallen off, and they’ve encouraged me that I’ve had good ...


I will be

I recently purchased a new album off iTunes Anthony Brown and Group Therapy and I have had Track #2 Titled I will be on REPEAT.  I have found it to be VERY encouraging and thought I’d share the tune with you all in hopes of spreading the empowering message. The song is basically a declaration that chants: I will be … Everything… that He ...


A New Bible Study Group 4 Wives

BS4W Flyer V1


Starting Saturday January 26, 2013 we will be launching a Bible Study Group that focuses specifically on praying over our marriages.

BS4W is meant to be a tool used to equip wives, and assist them in the building stronger marriages.

My desire is for us to set aside time to search the scriptures for the keys for successful marriage, and to pray for our husbands and marriages. The scriptures remind us that we overcome by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11), and we are encouraged in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to pray without ceasing. 

Happy and Healthy marriages don’t happen by accident!   We must be intentional and consistent in our pursuit for it, and I believe that by prayer and time spend dedicated to seeking God’s word HE will show us the way!!!

So I invite you to come out and join our Bible Study Group beginning January 26, 2013, and every 2nd and 4th Saturday monthly.

Time: 9:00am – 10:30am

Location: 7050 Bramalea Rd. Unit 42-47, Mississauga, ON

Contact: Colleen Blake-Miller at 416-837-4892 or colleenblakemiller@gmail.com

 Please call/email ahead so we know how many women we are preparing for!




Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. I know… I know… some days it seems like there really isn’t much to be thankful for.  But don’t believe the lie! There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for, but if you aren’t being intentional and looking to acknowledge those things, they may likely ...


18 weeks to Marathon Day :)

So today I registered for my training clinic for a FULL marathon through the running room. 18 weeks and then I’ll be running a full marathon… I am repeating myself because I am partly still in shock that I’m actually going through with this endeavor. I recently ran a Half Marathon for the GoodLife Fitness Marathon in May, and that was my 3rd time ...


Is it worth it?

Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like – Will Rogers   So I find this quote to be quite humorous, because it’s so true… It’s crazy… but true none the less, and so many of us waste so much of our resources, energy and time focused on impressing people that in ...



OMG… I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve blogged 🙁 Seriously…. And looking back at the last few blogs I wrote I feel  even WORSE knowing that the last few blogs were focused on my weight loss journey… I mean seriously… I’m getting tired of writing about that… and I feel so horrible knowing that for someone who just recently read/found my ...


Change really IS hard to do…

Change is A LOT harder than it first seems… Yes… this is the intro line to my confession that I’ve had a rough few days with my eating…  🙁 I guess having this ‘biggest loser’ competition extended a second time has really negatively influenced my motivation to stay on point with my eating… which I HAVE to take responsibility for because no one is ...


Pressing on

Computer is down again 🙁 So I’m using my iPod touch to post my blog tonight. I must admit that yesterday and today was difficult for me to stay strong and not cheat because I learned that the competition (our version of the Biggest Loser) has been extended till the end of May, and the final weigh in is June 2nd. To some that ...
