Where does the time go??  My son is now 14!!  He's my oldest of my two, and my only son.  I'm proud of the young man he is becoming.  Seems like yesterday we were awaiting he's arrival!  Now he's a year away from high school!
Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
This is little Austin when he was 9 months old!
Here he is today - 14 years old!

 Here he is today at the Kendall County 4H Fair with Buttons the clown!  Buttons sings Happy Birthday & wishes Austin a Happy Birthday every year!
Hope you've had a great birthday!  Love you always!  Mom, Dad, & your sis!

My SU! Coaches!

I get a special perk for being a Sr. Manager with SU!  I get bi-monthly coaching calls from my coach!  They help with with my goals, they provide great support and advice, along with great brain storming!
I haven't been to a SU! annual convention for awhile, so I was able to see my very first coach!
Rett & I

I did work with Sarah, but I don't think she's with SU! any longer!
 This was my current coach Kate.  We just ended our sessions in June! 
Kate has been working with a new product line call Undefined!  You will see it soon!  YOU can CREATE YOUR OWN stamps!!  That's right!  ThINK of the possibilities there!
Now it's time for a new coach!  I've gotten my message from Tanner!  I've called him back!  Great game of phone tag!
I can't wait to get this new year kicked off and working with my new coach Tanner!
Thanks for all the great support that you amazing SU! employees provide for us demo's!  Love you all!

Making a Difference!

At Convention we had the opportunity to take part in a service project!  We made banners & notebooks to put in birthday kits!  These birthday kits were being taking to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City.  They will be going to very ill children that spend their birthdays at the hospital.  We as demo's put together 2000 kits!
I know my downline participated and we put together at least 50 kits!
This was the display board of all the contents of the kit!

Here are 2 of my downline Bertina (l) and Stacey (r) putting together kits!

Here's the back side of Stacey as she was putting together the banners!  It was a cool pic to take!  These were the back of our shirts that we wore on Friday!  We had STAMP 25 on the backs in celebration of SU!'s 25th anniversary!

Thanks for making a difference in my life!  I hope I'm making a difference in yours too!
