What is The Bible’s Role in Your Life?

The Bible is fascinating. There are so many good things to learn and apply in all the aspects of our lives – health, finances, marriage, parenting, relationship with God and with other people and much more. The Bible is about what Jesus had done for you, God’s promises and His Kingdom and what to do in your daily life to live in harmony and please God. I also believe the Bible is a way of God communicating with us. The Word of God The Bible is the authoritative Word of God, written by people but inspired by the Holy Spirit. According to The International Bible Society, the Bible is a diverse collection of writings from about 40 main contributors—30 in the Old Testament and 10 in the New Testament. “The word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). God’s Will The Holy Spirit revealed to me that The Bible is the Will of God. This means if you ask for something that is in the Bible, God is answering. He said it, so be it. Since Salvation, […]


If You Have Faith, Nothing Will Be Impossible For You

By God’s grace, we receive salvation through faith and I believe through faith we also receive healing, peace and whatever we pray for in the name of Jesus Christ. In Ephesians 2:8-10 Paul says “by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”. Healing is close to my heart and I believe this is God’s Will, it is one of His promises and one of the blessings we received in Christ. Jesus Christ died for the forgiveness of our sins and He also took all our pains and diseases on the cross. “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed” – 1 Peter 2:24-25. Sickness does not come from God, He loves you, there is no sickness in heaven and healing is one of God’s promises.  As you pray for healing be ready to receive the healing even if […]


The Critical Importance Of Lead Validation In Internet Marketing

You wouldn’t go on a shopping spree if you didn’t know exactly how much money you had in the bank, so why evaluate your lead generation website without knowing how many actual sales leads it’s producing? If you’re relying solely on raw analytics to evaluate your site’s performance, you’re not getting the whole story. Nearly half of all website conversions are things other than sales leads — job applications, incomplete forms, customer service inquiries, and the like. Without lead validation as a critical component of your campaign, you’ll never be able to separate the true sales leads from those other interactions — and you’ll essentially be flying blind. Consider the following presentation if you’re building a new Internet marketing campaign or trying to optimise an existing one. Lead validation will give you a more accurate picture of your site’s performance, and keep you from spending money you don’t have.

BeLive.Tv Review

If you haven’t used Facebook Live before or you have used it on your mobile but you are looking for a solution to “Go Live” from your desktop, BeLive.Tv is worth trying. Carly Richards, a great business coach who wrote the guest post “Why Small Businesses Should Use Facebook Live“, is using it and shares her experience here. I remember my very first program launch. I had just started using Facebook Live for my business and had created a 5-day challenge in my group as my launch trigger for my next big coaching program.  Everything was going well, I had high sign up numbers, considering my group numbers were still quite low at the time. I had all my materials ready and had done some EFT Tapping to get rid of the nerves. I was raring to go. I clicked the Facebook app on my phone, went into my group and nervously clicked “Go Live”. A few seconds went by but the little blue button didn’t pop up. You know, the one that has “Go Live” written on it? I waited, and waited, but nothing!! I began to panic. I checked the time and knew I had participants waiting for me to go […]


My Story as a Foreigner in the UK 2

This is my story. Almost six years ago I was an immigrant trying to integrate into a country where I have never been before. I knew English but what I learned in school was very different to what I found here. Culture Shock Phases Soon after we moved to Southampton, in May 2011, I went through all four stages of culture shock that you read in books. At the beginning, I was happy to be here and I loved everything in Southampton – the air, the shops, the parks, the history and the cruise ships. This phase, called The Honeymoon Stage, is when you are very excited to be in a new country and embrace their language, food and culture. Soon after that, The Frustration Stage stepped in quickly. I was living in a new city without knowing anyone else than my husband, we were sleeping on the floor until we bought a bed, it was hard to get a job and British people didn’t get my accent. I learn English in school but some of the words I used were in an American accent and the British people just didn’t get it… We moved to the UK with a Blue Card for Highly-Skilled Migrants, but […]

You Need More Than Just Positive Thinking to Live a Happy Life. You Need God. 1

Since the moment I have seen the film “The Secret” and I studied all the teachers from the film and many others in the recent years, I had a desire – to discover how this thing works and to help other people who go through difficult situations. I didn’t have the courage to start life coaching but now I know why. There was something I didn’t know in that moment but I was about to find out many years later… Exactly 12 days ago I discovered that God is the one in who I should have Faith in, He is The Creator, He is The One who helps and provides for you. He knows what you need, He lives with you and in you (I will explain this a bit later in my blog post). “Do not start worrying: ‘Where will my food come from? or my drinks? or my clothes? Your Father in Heaven knows you need all these other things” (Matthew 6:31). Believe That You Have Received You CAN live a HAPPY life. You, the person who reads this post, have you seen the film “The Secret”? You probably heard about Positive Thinking, the Law of Attraction and the […]


How Visual Content Can Transform Your Brand [And Your Bottom Line] 3

The power of visual content doesn’t just mean utilising more images. It means looking at all aspects of visual branding. Read this guest post by Matt Press, an experienced copywriter who has written words for some of the UK’s biggest brands, such as Sky, Three and Vodafone. He’s now on a mission to simplify SEO for businesses in London. As a copywriter, it pains me to say it, but pictures do speak a thousand words. Well, at least they do online, anyway. Here’s the situation: Most businesses know that content marketing is huge. Thanks to technology and the internet, customers have never been so accessible. As a result, everyone’s become a publisher. Pretty much every website under the sun pumps out some kind of content on a semi-regular basis. The problem is, most of it is rubbish. That might sound controversial, but it’s the truth. There’s a reason why 50% of online content gets just 8 shares or less. Most of us own a gadget of some sort and we love going online and absorbing content. The opportunities are there for every business… … but we must do better. We have to realise the power of visual content, and that doesn’t […]
