I’m Sharing My Brownies!
Not too long ago, I was inspired by a motivational coach and speaker when she asked, “Are you sharing your brownies?”
She then went on to paint this word picture: Imagine having a living room full of guests, and you get up to go into the kitchen to make a tray of the most amazingly rich, fudge-y, chewy brownies. The whole house begins to smell wonderful, and then you taste one—ohhh!!! Delicious! Now what? You know that everyone in the living room would like some of what you have. Are you going to be selfish and keep them all to yourself, or will you go out and share what you have with others?
So, I have decided to share my brownies. You won’t get fat, I promise!
Hi, I’m Sandra. Welcome to my blog, FourCornersField. My goal is to give you valuable information and resources for your everyday living, with a focus on building a successful home and online business, tips on staying (or getting) healthy, and encouragement from God’s Word. There may also be a sprinkling of various nuggests of information I come across that I think might be of help and interest to you.
The name FourCornersField comes from a biblical principle found in the book of Leviticus 19: 9-10: “And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the CORNERS of thy FIELD, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. And thou shalt not glean thy vineyards, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and the stranger.”
Basically, The Lord was instructing His people not to hoard their blessings but to be sure to share the wealth of their harvest with others.
Later, in the book of Deuteronomy, the point is re-iterated and The Lord tells them to remember how He had delivered and blessed them. Therefore they were required to pay it forward to others. In essence, “Share your brownies!”
That’s the heart of FourCornersField: To share with my readers and friends what I’ve learned either through research, experience, success, or failures so you too can reap the rewards and maybe avoid some pitfalls along the way.
I am a first and foremost a follower of Christ, a wife, mother, daughter, and sister; homeschool mom, small business owner, and network/internet marketer. In the past I have been many things including professional singer, performer, executive assistant, translator, and hotel manager.
I am a life-long student who has earned the equivalent of a Master’s degree in Life from the renowned School of Hard Knocks (with scars, bumps, and bruises to prove it). I’ll let you know when I’ve earned my Doctorate!
My purpose with FourCornersField is to encourage and help other stay-home moms & dads (or want-to-be-stay-home parents) to build a successful online business and to prosper, not only financially, but in health, in mind and spirit.
These are my brownies. Enjoy!
