Be The Change


It is time for you to change. Have you wondered why your life is the same place it was yesterday. Have you ever felt like you have been wasting time? Trying to finish task after task only to find that none of them were completed. I have done about everything. The to do list, the writing in the calendar, the recording of the reminders, you name it I have done it. But.........................There is one thing I have done for the past year consistently that has helped me to cope. It has helped me with my to do lists and it has helped me to get most of the things on my list done.

I have.....................Not yet, you will find out in a minute what it is. (Thinking..............)

I have... talked to folks, I have written it down, I have sung about it, and laughed about it. I have read about it in books, and magazines. I have..............................

Your right if you said. PRAYED! ABOUT IT.

Prayed until I found the solution, but not the solution from me, but the solution from God. He is my inspiration. He is the source of all my strengths and all my weaknesses. He is the one who steers me right when I am on the right track, and I am heading into a tunnel of destruction.

What is your inspiration? I will say if you do not mind something that inspires you AND inspires you to do and be better. Your right track cannot be found following people, or things, or hopes and dreams leading you into the wrong things!

The people who you encircle yourself around must be believers in themselves first, and after believing in themselves they will be able to believe in you. They should be following the right path in life, and leading others to do the same. They can be Preachers, Teachers, Pastors, or Leaders. They can be your mother or Father, or your sister, or Brother. Their happiness which leads them to do right must be inside them, and with this happiness they can help you. If you do not know what inspires you, think about what you love to do and do well, then live it out in this lifetime. Do not just plan it or write it down. Let it happen. Churches Outreach Network was created when a vision was given to Rev. Dr. Rodney Coles Sr., and his wife Debra Coles. (Me) We formed a collaborative partnership who joined together to form one group, to help meet the needs of those less fortunate than us. The ministry focus is on feeding the hungry and helping the hopeless. We also offer resource assistance to those in the community. Those who are unable to find help or assistance in their present moment in life.

More about this 501 c 3 non-profit outreach ministry can be found on and you can follow us on our Facebook page "Churches Outreach Network".

GET INSPIRED........................Do what you love to do with the gift God gave you, and after getting your life in order focus on helping those less fortunate than yourself.

About Me                                                                        

For years, I have served as a helpful role model to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice.  I started writing about my passions, and my thoughts by journaling.  I founded Exceptional New Me whose mission is to find out who you are within and become the best version of yourself.  

I love Butterflies and to me they represent endurance, change, hope, and life.  They remind me that  life will be ok.

As a Wife, Mom, Sister, Friend, and wonderful chosen woman of God; I am Exceptional.  I am certified in Property Management, Interior decorating, and self-certified in Organization, Cleaning, Healthy Eating, Saving tips,  and Decorating.    Being a wife, mom and friend to many has  made me a better person.  I continue to learn as much as I can so I can share it with others.   I hope as you read this website and scroll through some of the pages that you find out what you were called here to do and give back to others.

I Aspire

To be all I can be. I aspire to be who God has chosen for me to be. I will change my life to be the person I was called to be. I will no longer drag my feet, or procrastinate, because I will remember that time will not wait for me. Each day I wake up is another day I must use to make a positive impact and influence in my society. What I know I will share with others. What I think I know I will research to get more knowledge, to share with others. There are too many books, too many experts, and too many past mistakes to let go of, for me to allow myself to become another one who is just wasting time. I will be that person who will pay it forward and not keep what I know to myself.

Be like the Butterfly


Endure through it all!  Get through the tough times no matter what. Press forward and maintain the mind set to stay positive.  Keep negative things and people away.  Remind yourself daily that you will get through this trial, and that God says all things are possible if you only believe!

Realize that change is a fact and a part of life.  Realize that it will happen and there is nothing you can do about it.  Except it, embrace it, live with it, and go through it.  Remember that you are not the only one going through at this present moment in time.  Keep being hopeful.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for; believing that you will come out of this even though you do not see a way out.  Stay strong no matter what.  Stay grounded in the word. You will be ok.
