Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

How can I see with God’s Eyes?

How can I see with God’s eyes?


I am excited and honored that Joel Boggess will join Purposeful Pathway Radio tomorrow, Wednesday February 6th. Joel Boggess, Author of Finding Your Voice, has the heart of a teacher and the patience of a friend. Joel blends his educational experience together with a passion for helping others to realize their God-given potential. Joel will share insight and inspiration from his own purposeful pathway!  Enjoy his guest post below.


It was easy to see that she had a strong work ethic. Carolyn was diligent, punctual and could be counted on, come rain or shine.

And, as respectable as her time-clock record showed her to be, even the highlight of a good sales month would quickly fade into the background, since it didn’t advance her emotional health or warm her heart, as much as it boosted her company’s bottom line.

She needed something that would nurture her soul as well as her pocketbook; something that would help her make a difference, in a way that made a difference to her.

Fundamentally, I’m sure she had known that for quite some time, but had, at some level, given up, because she didn’t know where to look or how to find it.

Around the third time we met, the conversation shifted from gifts and skill-sets to how do you see yourself contributing, growing and making a difference?

In essence, I was asking her for pieces of her vision. I say pieces because, in my experience, that’s how God reveals things: in pieces.

His revelations don’t come as a full-length, Avatar-like presentation.

They come as sneak peeks, highlights, and previews of a possible future.

It is then up to us, to step-into our wonderful, developing story.

Now, back to Carolyn. After giving herself the opportunity and the space to articulate her vision on paper, (in her case poster board) not only did she learn to embrace the glimpses of her coming attraction, she also learned how to harness the energy that came from the direction she had found.

Take a look at the vision board Carolyn designed. (Her’s is on the bottom right.) You’ll have no trouble understanding what it is that lights her fire.

Questions for reflection and discussion: What glimpses or peeks has God revealed to you that have been brushed off (by yourself or others) as either not “practical” or “realistic”?

Two More Days until HCBA!

Only TWO MORE DAYS until we embark on another session of the Heart-Centered Business Academy! I invite you to join me on this transformational journey!

You can can learn more and register below.

A haven to thrive in both business and life, the Heart-Centered Business Academy will launch again February 7, 2013.

What members of the Academy share about the experience:

Ann Musico: I was privileged to participate in the 7-week Heart Centered Business Academy and I can honestly say it has been a time of great insight, productivity and progress for me and my business. As a Biblical health coach I understand the value of accountability, support and encouragement and I received all three. Caroline’s insightful, sensitive and motivating comments and support throughout the 7 weeks was absolutely invaluable. She made everyone feel completely at ease and provided a beautifully structured, yet relaxed and respectful environment in which to explore options and new directions. I especially loved the effortless and natural combining of faith and business. It sets this coaching program head and shoulders above others because it addresses the entire person, not just one aspect. It’s the type of program that would be beneficial to do periodically in order to assess progress and make targeted, constructive course corrections. I wholeheartedly recommend this coaching to anyone who is serious about rising to a higher level in life.

Carole Simone: This Heart Centered Business Academy has been a delightful journey in self-awareness. It brought to light the many areas of my life that need improvement and how to improve them, especially in my daily walk with my Lord Jesus. The goal setting strategies that Caroline presented were clear, defined and Christ-centered. Caroline’s caring, her insights and her encouraging words made the academy a growing, an enriching experience. And the group participation was very helpful. Everyone added such wonderful knowledge. I would definitely recommend this academy to anyone who has a desire to improve and succeed in all areas of life!

Mike Fenton: I was very impressed with the Academy. The concept of asking people to share their insights and testimonials proved to be very beneficial; which in turn left me many a night reflecting on what had been said. Those reflections not only provided me with new insights and ideas of which I could incorporate into my business but my life as well.

Lisa Graham: I can’t thank you enough for offering the Heart Centered Business Academy. I loved it! The structure, length, organization, ability to share and, of course, the content were all outstanding. Walking though each step with time for reflection and a specific focus were a huge help. It allowed me time to really focus while keeping me motivated! I also really enjoyed how everyone could share their successes, challenges and other insights. It brought out great points for all of us plus gave us extra encouragement when needed. I appreciate your work and commitment to us!! You rock!

Cindy Hirch: In the time I have known Caroline she has soared to new heights. It has been incredible to watch her growth. She has an ability to connect and relate to people in a way that transcends language barriers and cultures. Caroline’s poetry is beautiful. She has an incredible gift to write and her work truly inspires the reader in what she shares. In group coaching she offers practical solutions and applications for business. Even if you are not looking to own or grow your own business, these same principles can be applied to your personal life. They are presented and woven with a deep spiritual and Godly approach. She has been blessed with many gifts that allow her to serve others well. Without reservation I would highly recommend Caroline’s services.

Continue reading to learn more about the Academy:

Hand in hand, we will walk through the steps of

* clarifying your business goals

* creating and implementing your business plan

* strategizing to overcome obstacles on the heart-centered business path

A question I receive often about the Academy is whether or not one must have a heart-centered business to join. The answer is “no.” Although the Academy was designed with heart-centered entrepreneurs in mind, the 7-step journey we take is powerful when applied to life goals. In our last session, those who did not have heart-centered businesses enjoyed and benefited from the Academy just as much as those who did.

Why Group Coaching?

1. Affordability: Enjoy the tremendous benefits of coaching at an attractive and affordable price.

2. Community: Enjoy the camaraderie of the group; connect with others who are in the same or similar positions as you. You will discover that the Heart-Centered Business Academy is a family.

3. Networking: Benefit from networking with other business owners.

4. Accountability: Appreciate both the high level of accountability and the accompanying high results that stem from working in a group setting.

5. Benefit from Breadth of Knowledge: Marvel the treasure trove of collective wisdom and experiences.

6. Bless Others: Share your own pearls of wisdom and experiences to bless others in their journeys.

7. Comfort: Relax in a comfortable setting; group coaching provides an atmosphere that is less intensive than one-on-one coaching.

8. Increased Joy: Look forward to the growth and to the fun you will experience. Heart-Centered Business Academy will not only propel your business but also heighten the joy in your journey.

9. Benefit from a Bible-Based Structure: Embrace God’s blessings by seeking counsel and guidance from many. “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.” (Proverbs 15:22)

Experience growth from these group coaching calls every Thursday evening from February 7th through March 21st. In addition to the seven one-hour calls, enjoy the Heart-Centered Business Academy workbook, exercises and accountability checks. Remember, you do not need a heart-centered business to join; you need only to bring your heart and your heart-centered goals.

Enjoy the journey of a lifetime with an investment of only $127.

I look forward to seeing you on this transformational journey!
