to the More Abundant Life blog! I’m so excited that you are here. I have been a born again believer in Jesus Christ since I was a teenager. However, a couple of years ago, I had the revelation that I was living beneath my privilege as a Christian because I had blocks when it came to the promises of God. I decided that I want the life that God has for me. I started this blog to explore, share, and learn with others about the promises of God.
A little about me. I am also a wife and mother and in my professional life I am a counselor and trainer. In my role as a trainer, I get to design workshops (which I love with mango fruit passion). One of my favorite get-to-know-you exercises is called the 5 C’s. The C’s stand for the following favorites :
- Closet dream
In the ice breaker, people list their answers and then share among the group. Once, people explain their answers you know a little about them and everyone feels more connected. So, I thought that I would share my own 5 C’s
Character. I usually ask people to list any character that they would like to invite to lunch and it can be anyone real or imagined; living or dead. My answer is my grandmother, who transitioned to heaven over 10 years ago. I would show her my children, because she didn’t get to meet them. I know that she would be surprised that I have three kids and would say, “Oh, Nikki, those are some fine babies.” Rich relationships are the core of an abundant life and in this blog we will discuss how to keep and maintain them.
Color. Red is my favorite color because I look good in it. I bet you were expecting me to write something deep about the blood of Jesus and I will at a later time. However, I do like that red is an energy color and represents life. The More Abundant Life will explore different areas of lifestyle, such as minimalism and parenting.
Cuisine. What is life without good food? We have to talk about food and health! My favorite food depends on the day of the week, but at the writing of this post I’m craving Italian. Here we explore making good food and making good food choices.
Car. My favorite kind of car is one that is paid off. So, how can you talk about abundance without discussing money? Everyone has a relationship with money. Hopefully, you are on speaking terms with yours, but we will explore what the Bible has to say about money.
Closet Dreams. Your closet dream is about the thing that you wish that you could do. The thing that you would do if you were granted three wishes. In groups, I am always surprised at the number of people who have achievable closet dreams. For instance, they will say to open a business, travel, or perform. My closet dream answer usually centers around writing. While I am a published poet and fiction writer, I always want more writing in my life. So, this blog is a part of my closet dream. The Scripture says that the young will have dreams and the old will have visions, and what is life if we don’t have those and explore them. We will explore tools and skills that can help us have the life that God wants for us.
There is a comment field below. I would love to hear your 5 C’s.
