I am Ecstatic!


Hello My Friends,

goodmorning coffee
I woke up drained, ever have a morning like that? I dragged myself out of bed and half asleep  I did my morning routine wishing I could go back to bed. When I went to make my most favored beverage, yep you guessed it – Coffee! I was pleasantly surprised to find a package waiting for me one day earlier than I expected!

I’m ecstatic I got the rest of my (self created) Author and A Novel Life stuff after months of waiting. The box includes: Stationary, Business cards, Thank you notes and so much more. Woot! Those you will only see in person or via the mail. As for pictures of what I do want to show off you can look to my Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram accounts…

Lets be Honest….


Hello Dear friends,

I haven’t been writing here or on www.deeplyrootedinhim.wprdpress.com for several reasons…‬. I have been very busy catching up on the ‪‎”Deeply Rooted In Him” – Book, which will be the next one I will Publish. I was stuck with a particular chapter for a little bit. Along with fighting personal battles: sickness, depression, and loneliness. I know all the Bible verses and but you have to choose joy vs sadness and that you have to stay tough. Even though I feel like I’ve been beaten up by circumstances, people, the devil over the many years I’ve lived. The Devil comes only to Steal from you, to Kill you , and to Destroy You! But I  (Jesus) comes to bring you Life and to Bring it Abundantly! ~John 10:10

I don’t know id you are anything like me but I hate being sick I really really Hate it! I feel so limited  and restricted from so many things I would rather be doing. However, it has given me the opportunity to gather my self control (because let’s be honest we all lose it at times and believe the Devils lies that we aren’t good enough, that the world is against us etc.) I needed this time to help me refocus my energy and mind towards God so the can put on the armor that I’m supposed to wear .

 Whole Armor of God

(Ephesians 6)

And to keep fighting through life’s challenges. I wasn’t going to say any of this to anyone but I feel it would be better to be honest and possibly help someone then to keep it to myself. It’s really hard to bear your inner thoughts and emotions that sometimes we people need to confide in someone. Especially for me, I am so used to putting on a Strong front and pretending all is well… That way others don’t worry about me, pity me, or use my weakness against me. But writing the books where I am telling my life story have helped me become more open. I choose you my friend’s. I’m not asking you to pick up my burdens. I gave them to God and let them go. I am just saying We need to stick together and build each other up. That’ is how I believe God made us to be.  Lets be honest we all could do more then we are doing, we all need to encourage each other, watch our words towards each other. My always says that she doesn’t  want to have wasteful words… Meaning words that only bring waste and poison int to others lives. Neither do I. It is a challenge.

Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Moe Bible Verses About Power Of The Tongue

 I know when I get into the habit of complaining it is hard to get out of… I am glad to say I haven’t been in that  havib for a while.When you let depression and dark thoughts control your emotions its really hard to beak free. So don’t go there if you can help it. Then suddenly today I found this picture today and it was perfect for what I need and I hope it will be perfect for what you need.

Dear Child

I’m still fighting sickness but I’ll be better soon in Jesus name! I’ve been working on getting closer to God on a one on one  level.  With  all that I’ve been thinking a lot about where I have been and where I am now… Were am I now?? I thought for sure I was lost and going no where… That I haven’t done anything worth anything in years… Well that’ not true tho… Let me ask you – How often do you feel that way? How often do you wonder if what your doing has any purpose? Living is your purpose, doing the best that you can with what you have been given  by God. I can’t tell you what your calling is, someday’s I am not sure what mine is. But I refuse to let life’s troubles keep me down no matter how bad things get. My life history is proof of that. ~hugs~ If you need a friend I am here for you.  Please let me know if my blogs are something you enjoy reading. I cold use your encouragement and feedback. Thank you♥

‪God bless you today and always!

My First Public Appearance


Woot ~ I did it!

After two moths of planing and about $400.00 I had my first public appearance at a Spring Festival in Washington stare May 29 – May 31! The whole thing was a roller coaster ride of emotions. about a year ago I made he decision I would have a booth at the local festivals during the 2015 summer. I have a local friend Who just started her own business Selling ‘Clever Container’ products. https://www.facebook.com/JennifersCleverTreasures We decided to share a booth together. We dd our research and plans and before we knew it the summer had snuck up on us! Which split the registration and insurance fees. It was a lot more work then I expected it to be. Not only was I getting my stuff ready I was also her Business Consultant. ( My consulting page: https://www.facebook.com/A.Novel.Life )

Come Find Us at Spring Fest

I helped her get started setting up her page, creating her labels, Creating her Banner and more. When I was done with her stuff I realized how much I had to do still. Buying the books, a Banner Business Cards, Magnets, Demo products, Things to sell at the fest besides books to draw attention and of course we needed an Event Shelter. I bought a nice Yellow 12×12 $299.00 Colman for sale for $99.00.

My Event Shelter

 

When all that was settled we passed out fliers with in the county and handed out more then 50 businesses cards each. Honestly that was more then I expected to. Since I was going for it I decoded I wanted to raise awareness and collect donations for #ACHA and #MendedLittleHearts  Because I am 1 out of 11o born with a heart defect.

When The day finally came to set up we were freaking out nervous! We decided to go early despite peoples suggestions which was a great thing because we got to choose our booth location at the Festival! With two separate businesses She took one side and I took the other but before we could set up our tables we needed to set up the tent. It isn’t a quick popup (which wold be a great Idea) When we first opened the tent bag We were surprised at how many poles and parts there were and we became over whelmed… Thank God my sister Amanda and her Husband were with us she is great at reading instructions. When we got it half way set up it looked like it wasn’t going to be taller then 3ft.. We started to panic… Jennifer called a local store to see if they had a 10×10 for sale…She was about to go get it with my brother-in-law when Amanda and I decided to keep setting up the tent just to be sure…. To out surprise and relief…… We gained the height we needed it was about 5’11 on the inside but it had lower sides to keep the sun out. Extremely pleased and tears and broken wallets averted we began to set up out sides of the booths. ^_^  All in all set up took about 4 hours, we were so glad we had decided to come early. We had a few issues with how to tie the banners and arrange the tables, once that was settled it all fell into place.

It was a high heat weekend and our helpers canceled due to the heat and illness so It was just her with her kids and I there for the three days. We decided to leave the big stuff but to take our important stuff home at night because of the stories we heard about thievery. And we used used every mussel we had doing so every morning and night. It took us about an hour set up and tear down time and by the last night we felt like pro’s. We made sure to come early and to stay late so we got great parking spots for he loading and unloading. But all in all despite the heat and sore mussels it was I think a great success. Jennifer who had a lot of great products was able to get the word out for future home parties. Due to the extreme heat There were not many people at the event as they had hoped for.. All the booths said they suffered costs due to the lack of people.

I truly am glad I did this I leaned a lot and I feel like I took the next step getting the word out about my books. I sold more then I thought and I met some really interesting people. I do have some tips tho  if you are planning on doing your own event:

*One -Make sure you limit how much you will bring – less really is more. If you have to many things people won’t know what to look at first and  your tables could look over crowded. Pulse your mussels will thank you later. One of the Booths near us was complaining  about how little he sold and he kept trying to pawn off stuff to us.

*Two – Have a idea what you want your booth to look like so when set up time comes you aren’t panicking. Three make sure you come early no matter what they say. First come first serve is most event’s motto. We had quite a few people people upset because they came late and didn’t get to put their tents where they wanted.  People were walking though the event before moat booths were set up we made most our sales in the mornings and evenings.

*Three – Know the location where you will be, and prep what you may need such as: Bandaids, water, food,  food money, sun block, tape scissors, a coat if indoors,  etc.

*Four and most important You have to talk to the people walking by, some will just pretend they don’t see you but others  would have passed by if i had not said Hi. Don’t be a robot be yourself smile and be friendly.  I don’t want to push my book on anyone It is quite personal but when I got over being shy (which is not the usually me)  and I actually started talking to people I started getting more people. Be careful not to miss people  who want to buy something tho because you talking to other people make sure you say Hi to everyone.

*Five Be – friend your tent neighbors. We were so lucky to be nest to some really nice guys, one a tent from Dish Network, and there was  a Guy from Final Fight Radio. Which was nice because us bring to ladies in a crowed there were times when we needed them.  Like when the drunk  homeless guy wouldn’t leave.  Or our last night when we had only half the help we had when we set up. We all   helped each other out. The last thing you want at the event is enemies.

*Six- Don’t forget tables and Chairs… We shared the  extra chairs we had with a neighbor booth.

*Seven- DO NOT Bring anything you cannot  do alone. If its just you keep it super simple for set up and tear down. There were only about three tents with ony one person. But like I said you befriend others they will help you out most likely.

Don’t give up on your dreams no matter how long it takes you!  You are awesome! That’s all I have to say other then I wish you could have been there if you weren’t and to those of you who were and who bought something – Thank you so much for coming it was great seeing you!

Please don’t forget to like my Author page on face book. I will be giving away a free book  or prize if you already have the book to someone out of my first 200 likes. https://www.facebook.com/AmyJaneSandberg.Novelist

My foot is still broken


Dear Dreaders,  Guess what… 😛    Yep……. My foot is still broken.

Amy’s boot

Dr said that it could take a year for it to heal. He said my break is a difficult one. It is across the middle of my foot. The bones he said are like this. (–) He said stay in the boot. He saw a girl yesterday. Who after 7 months is finally seeing her bones connect. I broke mine 4 months ago. The dr said surgery wouldn’t make much a difference because my bone may never heal so putting a screw in especially at this point  won’t make big difference. In fact he said honestly it could prove to cause more issues if my foot doesn’t heal. I am on vitamin D and trying to stay off it as much as I can, however I am a pretty busy person and I don’t sit still well… I go back to see him in 6 weeks. I don’t sit still well but I am working on it.  Do me a favor, don’t ever break your foot. It is really painful and it limits you  so much more then I ever thought I would. I truly feel blessed that I still have my foot, and that things could be so much worse then they are… I have a big God who can do big things. I know this from personal experience. He has a plan! And I am trusting Him. I am Healed and I am just waiting for the manifestation of it! Till then I have lots to do and I will finally be forced to sit and work on my books with few excuses!

GoodBye: Aunt Christine


Christmas eve dinner we got a call that my aunt had passed away. She was so talented as an actress and voice actress. She was real, down to earth, goofy, yet mature beyond her years. She really grasped life. She touched so many people. She had a light inside her that has gone out. It is greatly missed. She inspired so many, including me… I don’t think I would have followed my dreams of writing if not for her pushing me.  She was born my dad’s youngest half sister. We grew up with visits and packages  from her.  I miss her dearly she was my first and best pen-pal; When she retired it was a sad day for everyone. Something she had to do. To stay under the radar she then after went by went by her maiden name Sandberg.  My dad, Stanley Roy Sandberg was one of her half sibling. Their dad and my grandpa was Waldo Sandberg. My dad  told us that he helped raise her. He was very close to her and has taken it very hard… Especially, after loosing his Oldest son Shane Sandberg to cancer in 2013 and now loosing his youngest sister this year around my brother’s birthday Just was a stab in the heart… Which made Christmas all that much harder…. I really feel for him… He has had a hard life but my dad is an Amazing man!

We kept in touch with aunt Christine our whole lives. We visited with her. But kept her secret. She for reasons that I never knew but totally understand she wanted to keep to just her family. I would love to tell you so much more about her, but she enjoyed her privacy and out of respect I will keep the info to my family. It is truly sad she had no idea how much she touched peoples’ lives. To often amazing people can’t see how amazing they are. She was a real treasure.  I was really close to her. I am so blessed, just like anyone else who knew her was. She was one of my best friends. I am so sad thinking about how much I will miss her letters and sweet notes. I’m so glad. I can say she was a part of my life, not because she was famous but because she was Amazing. She was always leaning, she loved: animals, children, nature, the wind, history, culture, reading, and writing. A huge inspiration♥ I didn’t matter to me if she was famous or not… She was my Amazing Aunt! And I have the letters to prove it.

In the past year she talked about how much she missed my Grandpa Waldo. He passed away years ago. I find my closure in thinking thinking about how happy she must be to be with Grandpa Waldo, and the joy she must be having in Heaven.

It is so strange reading all this stuff on the media…. It is a really odd feeling… Thinking That is my aunt they are talking about… I am so glad she was loved by so many tho!

Here are the Few articles I liked and think they got the Info most Correct (They are not all the same):

Progress….


Hello Dear Readers.

I am sorry I have been very bad only posting on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Author.AmyJaneSandberg , But I am rectifying that this week, by back dating and adding older posts here with more details then I have on Face book. So When I post this they will be already added. ^_^

For the past few weeks I have been working on my books.

I was shocked when someone bought 6 books at once. When I asked her why; She told me she wanted to share them. She sent me this picture today after she received them. She is awesome! I edied the picture to protect her privacy. I’m still speechless.

My phone is giving me lots of issues. It keeps saying that I need an update but when I accept it does nothing. It keeps going silent and out of range a lot more than ever! I am not receiving 3/4 of my calls. Sigh. With that and my net issues I wonder if there’s a good reason or it is playing with me. I really miss talking to you regularly. People are extremely important to me. And I make time for you when I can. Friendship is a 2 way street. I am sorry I can’t be around like I want to. Life has added more to keep me busy as well. Please do- Text me, skype me, or fb message me; and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible whenever you want me. There’s a guy who at Best buy who may be able to fix it I just have to make time to go.

♥ Love ya,

Amy Jane Sandberg

 

FIRE!!!


EEKkk!!!
10646818_443755702429473_3854965101946672220_n
There was a massive fire only a street away from our house! It was super scary!!! It was started by a bad power-line. The flames ran up the side of the mountain and on to the bluff we live… It was defiantly life changing… Fear is powerful, it is brain numbing too at times… I rarely have faced a situation where I lost the power to think. I was mentally and physically frozen for a few minuets. So I prayed… Because that is what I do when I know not what to do, I ask God. And then I made mental notes of where the animals were, where what I needed to save was… I was faced with the reality. It is really interesting what really goes though your mind when faced with the question- There is a fire, what is the one thing you save? If the fire reached us, I would loose so many items, some collectors, none of them as important as the my family and pets… The first thing I thought of, was I have no pet carrier for the cats, what will I do with them? Let them outside to fend for themselves if it comes to it, animals are smart and they have instincts would they make it? No… I’ll try and wrap them in a towel put them in the car hope I don’t drop them on the way down… If I must I will… I told myself Then I quickly found my dog leash, and got her downstairs. (I live on a second story with stairs on the outside.) I kept a close eye on the fire. I have to say the Firemen were fast, brave and awesome! The news said we had only seven fire trucks, but I counted about thirty-three of all types.. There was even helicopters working hard to put the fire out!

I was about to pack up and get us all of us out of the house but then I looked over to the empty field next door and saw about ten deer peacefully eating grass and sleeping. After that I felt peace and I knew we would be safe. Just then the wind shifted and instead of blowing north it stated to blow west… Which was good! Soon after that They had the fire out near the homes, but the fire moved fast west… The poor firemen worked well into the night and into the next morning to get the massive fire out.

We were so blessed not to have any homes or people hurt in our small town. The firemen did an awesome job! God is so good! Sometimes still when I see smoke I quickly go over the emergency list I have prepared in my mind, what I need to do etc as i it were a natural reaction… Fear is a funny thing and very powerful… This whole thing was super scary but a great lesson of faith and a real test. One which I am glad we didn’t have to take!

♥Love ya, Amy Jane Sandberg
