Karl Schmidt of Canada called “Angels in Action,” an “Uplifting and inspirational read,” said Schmidt. “Diane’s journey through her struggles will likely resonate with many readers who themselves have been faced with their own hardships on this human journey. Reading Angels in Action reminds us that we all face challenges in life and, although they might seem insurmountable to the logical mind, if we are open to assistance from the unseen we can indeed receive the help that we need.”

Joan Rivers: Motherhood before career

What most of us usually think about when we hear the name, “Joan Rivers” is the notoriously controversial character who was never afraid to speak her mind. What many of us may not realize is that Joan Rivers made sure to prioritize her relationship with her daughter, Melissa.

ABC News reported her saying once about her relationship with her daughter, “We had to go through the bad times, but we came out of them,” said Rivers. “Melissa is the one to whom I could give total affection and feel it being absorbed and returned.”

The bond between mother and daughter was not one-sided either. In fact, Melissa Rivers said in an interview with People magazine, “The thing I had and will always have is my mother. She was right there for me.”

All jokes aside, Joan made it a priority in her life to make sure that her daughter, Melissa, knew that she was loved dearly by her mother. Despite the controversies that surround the late Joan Rivers, one cannot deny that the relationship one craves for as a parent to their child is what Joan and Melissa had. That begins with how Joan approached their relationship, that her daughter’s happiness comes first.

Staying on track with your goals

We are embarking on the third quarter of the year. Are you on track, achieving, and accomplishing your goals? If your answer is YES…KUDOS to you! Give yourself a reward, you deserve it.

If your answer is anything other than yes, “ hold on.” Here are

5 keys to staying on track:
• Stay focused and monitor energy expenditure. Do your daily actions, feelings and thoughts enable the fruition of your goals or do they impede them?
• Prioritize your goals.
• Visualize your goal as a 3D movie. Proactivity necessitates desire, and your desires are heavily shaped by your imagination. What takes precedence in shaping imagination?
• Say no. Are you spreading yourself thin?
• Get an accountability partner. Being social is central to every plane of our life—to say that the courage to be open about your goals will pay off is an understatement.

Her own poem befits my feelings of her loss.
Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Book Review of Angels in Action from Rev. Henry Hayden!

I have been honored to receive this book review from Rev. Henry Hayden:

“Believer or skeptic, you can hardly fail to be moved by these stories of answered prayers, so graciously and lovingly told by Diane Williams. Some attribute miracles to unusual coincidences, but these factual accounts of everyday human life are clearly God’s reply to a specific need or suffering. To read this book is to be shaken in your complacency and challenge you to deepen your faith and change your prayer life. To me, reading this book was a life-changing experience, for which I am grateful to Diane Williams.”

Thank you, Rev. Hayden, for your kind words!
