I CHOOSE to honor my husband Patrick, NOT because I am weak, BUT because I am strong




I HONOR MY HUSBAND DAILY









Some days it seems as if you have to FIGHT for what you believe in. I had a conversation with a fellow military wife that did not agree with any of my values or beliefs. She questioned the way I raised my kids, Called me "Prehistoric" when it came to marriage and then she called me so many negative adjectives (Smile) that I can not repeat here at this blog. Put it this way, She called me everything EXCEPT a child of God. Let me tell you, She was really angry at me. She desperately wanted me to change my point of view on "Submission in Marriage." What a day, What a day indeed! Look, We all have our own opinions and we will NEVER AGREE on ALL aspects of the bible.








Discussions like this are a great way to learn from others and further the kingdom. Listening is not necessarily agreeing but allows other people to share their voice....

Trying to change a persons position becomes absolutely fruitless when the other person just refuses to listen. WOW, It is a total waste of your precious time. I learned so many valuable lessons in my discussion with this military wife. One thing I know is I love being a wife and my views are my own. I am grateful to God that he has given me this platform to share my love for family, God and our beloved military. We can all disagree but it takes a person with great morals and humility to listen, respect and then respond. That is exactly what I did. I pray that you will do the same when faced with a similar situation. 



I AM A PROUD NAVY WIFE
PARICK AND LASHON CAMBELL, FLORIDA 2014

I LOVE BEING HIS WIFE


As most of you know, I have been married for 22 years and my position is simple: As a wife, I CHOOSE to honor my husband Patrick. Not because I am weak, BUT because I am strong.
LASHON CAMPBELL, NAVY WIFE
I believe in my heart that when we as wives LOVE AND HONOR our husbands, It is one of the BEST WAYS to show them our love...I would love to hear some suggestions and ways that you show love to your spouse. Why not try it today and see if it works for your family. Each of us is different and what works for my family may not work for your family. What I do know is that LOVE is universal, So showing your spouse LOVE can NEVER bring negative results.

LASHON AND PATRICK CAMPBELL


My husband Patrick is not PERFECT but by showing him love and giving him honor every single day is my personal way of showing him just how much he is appreciated as head of our family. Showing him LOVE also is a great way for me to REMIND HIM of the man he is becoming. Day by day growing closer to God and being a great husband and father. I love being his wife and I show him how much every day.




PATRICK AND LASHON CAMPBELL




Again, this is my choice and it will not work for everyone. I just know in my heart that A joyful marriage requires generous portions of both of us and I do my part to keep this marriage as an example for our children. I pray that you and your spouse are loving and respecting one another as a strong example for your own kids. Each of our marriage is DIFFERENT but our goals should always be the same.  God bless you all and stay in prayer.

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

God has blessed me with WONDERFUL friends 

Have you ever stopped for a moment and said a thank you to God for all the wonderful people that he has placed in your life. I truly believe that you should. At least remind yourself of these blessings as often as possible. God has really blessed me to know some WONDERFUL people in my life. 









One of the GREATEST joys I have encountered in my military travels has been relationships that I have developed with friends. Most of the people who are in my life are military wives and they are all awesome in their own way. They have each touched my life and made it better in such a fantastic way. I really do mean that. I have such great memories of them.









Friendships of any kind are a gift from God. Having a friend that understands you and loves you makes your heart feel so full and their love is simply incomparable in my mind. I spend a lot of time sharing with my friends and letting them know just how important they ar…

Happy First birthday to the BEST GRANDSON ever....

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH LOVE MY HEART WOULD HOLD, UNTIL I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME....

Our family has been BLESSED with a NEW grandson. His name is Cameron and he is the most beautiful baby in the world. He has a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that is contagious. The first time I laid eyes on him, I loved him. I never knew how much love my heart could hold before our grandson was born. 













We are about to celebrate his first birthday and we are excited about the AMAZING future for the newest member of the Campbell family. Look at that face....
I hold him in my arms and I remember when my own kids were small and full of wonder. Grand kids are such a blessing and I plan on spending as much time as I can spoiling this beautiful baby (Smile)






THIS WAS A PERFECT MOMENT IN TIME






We love our kids and we hold them close to our hearts, but these grand kids tug a little harder and they make you forget how to say no (Smile) Where is my brain today? Is that a good thing or am I just …

Ways to get some EXTRA CASH in your pockets

WE LOVE EXTRA CASH 


I always say that I am going to have a garage sale. OK so maybe you have heard that once before. (I am a bit of a procrastinator) When I look around the garage there are tons of stuff that I could probably sale. Recently, the kids and I donated quite a bit of that stuff to the Salvation Army. I felt really good about that.



CHARITY

The Salvation Army is one of my favorite charities and I figured the stuff was just sitting around gathering dust. Giving back makes me feel better and I am teaching my kids how to save, volunteer, give back and honor God all at the same time. The reality is, we all can use some EXTRA CASH and the stuff laying around your house could be priceless to someone. 








How much extra stuff do you have lying around the house that you never use? You could arrange the items and sell them at a Garage sale.







MAKE SOME MONEY

Before you know it, you can turn that extra stuff into cash. So today as you are going about your day, why no…

By growing my relationship with God and loving Him wholeheartedly, I have unintentionally grown to love myself as well!

I am finding my way back to the woman I always knew I was! My name is Lashon and I am a 48 year old divorced mother of three. I was married for half of my life.  I tell you my story today with no regrets, no shame only love and compassion. A few years ago I changed and through my journey I learned a lot of tough lessons about myself and my relationship.  From the outside my marriage looked perfect.  Well, it really wasn't. I was not aware that my marriage was over, dead and virtually stagnant.

With the help of a great psychologist, my church, my friends and through hard work I have changed. People change for many reasons but most are caused by two main events. The first reason that people change is by choice, their minds have opened and they simply want to evolve. They crave for something better. The second reason that people change is not by choice, their heart is broken so now what do you do? You have to accept change whether you want…

OK, So I Want to eat Oreo Cookies everyday. Well, maybe not everyday! I also want to stay in the BEST shape possible. Something isn’t adding up!

Hello and welcome back to my blog. So glad that you are able to stop by here and join me. Today I want to talk about having a simple exercise plan. Exercise is a very touchy subject when you get to my age.
I mean I wake up some mornings and this old body aches from head to toe. Can you relate? Although my pain is terrible sometimes, I am determined to keep this weight off. I am at a great size and I am finally moving around without getting out of breath. It really is no fun being sick and its no fun being in the hospital. that my friends is my absolute worst nightmare. So I am committed to exercising AT LEAST three times a week.
