2-27-2011 Morning Weigh in and Sherry and Kent's words of Wisdom

 Good Morning everyone and Thank you for Stopping by. We are so very excited about the email posted below and had to share it with all of our readers. This is from Sherry and Kent Braswell - good friends and Diamond Executives in MonaVie- Strong Christians and helping Margaret and I in our walk in faith with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This morning Margaret is at set point (she is -28 lbs and looking sooooo good. It is so true that good things come to those that are patient and love the Lord). I dropped -.8 and now and at -36.2 down to 192.2 and just 4 lbs from Goal. YES!!!
Thanks Wilber and Margaret

Good Morning MonaVie Family!

Kent & I got a very exciting call from a VERY excited David Warden last night.  He was so excited he could hardly speak!  He had just attended the packed Rex Crain event in Tulsa.  Rex Crain is a life coach.  He is a speaker at a lot of Brig’s big events and does meetings all across the country for R3Global. Rex’s first passion was baseball. Like a dream come true, he was picked up and signed by The Boston Red Sox at the age of 18. But just weeks before leaving for his second season, Rex had a spiritual encounter that altered his life's course and caused him to leave his baseball career behind and pursue the discovery of his "God idea."  Since that day, Rex has developed a confidence in the ability and willingness of God to help people and to change their lives.

David said the event was INCREDIBLE and he was so excited to buy Rex’s new book Life Lift and went to his literature table to get his autograph.  When he called me he said…”Guess WHO I just had a long, belly to belly encounter with?”  I said “who?”  Rex Crain!  “He was SO incredible Sherry.  I am so inspired and so in awe by what he just said.  As Heather & I are talking to him he paused & looked into my eyes and said…”I have never done this before at a meeting but I have to tell you that I feel compelled to pray for you right now…right at this very moment.”  As he was praying for David he told him that he saw explosive growth happening under his left leg, under a team that had been faithful and diligent.  David said he knew instantly it was his NC team…that it was YOU!  For those of you that are Christians and live by faith you know that this is confirmation from God.  When you put God first in your lives and are obedient to His word He REWARDS YOU!  For those of you who are skeptical and don’t believe or are unsure of what you believe I would say this to you…WATCH & WITNESS as the mighty hand of God works these next few months.  Your faith will grow by what YOU witness.  Kent & I have said for over a year now that 2011 is a Supernatural Year of Blessings.  This means that it is by the hand of God that we will prosper.  God is the reason!  This is the season!  God is the answer!  He is the answer to ALL that you seek!  He is going to POUR the blessings of favor on this team!  Remember the story of the fishermen in the Bible who had fished all day but had caught nothing?  Jesus told them to go back out  one more time and cast their nets on the other side.  This is what our team has done this year. After a very challenging 2010 we have gone back out.  We’ve gone back out in faith.  We’ve gone back out in obedience.  These fishermen’s boat became so overloaded with fish they could hardly hold them in their boat.  They were rewarded for their obedience.  You see my friends God wants us to have FAITH in Him.  He wants to teach us to walk by faith, not by sight.  He wants us NOT to look at our circumstances but look at what His word tells us.  His word is the ONLY truth in the world today and the path of Christ is a narrow one.  But when you walk it and are obedient to it the rewards will chase you down…you cannot contain them!

I share this with you because I want YOU to remember this day. Write it down because what you are able to witness is going to blow your mind!  God has once again confirmed this journey we are on. He is blessing this company and this team because we are putting Him firstDid you know that last week was the BIGGEST WEEK in MonaVie history?!!!  Is that awesome of what?!  God is SO, SO GOOD!  He gets ALL of the credit!  He gets all of the glory!
RVL is sweeping the country like wildfire & God has put His stamp on it!  It’s coming hard and fast to our area!!!  God’s volcano of supernatural blessings is about to erupt!  How very blessed we are to be a part of it.  We are so humbled and are so grateful!
THANK YOU so much for sharing this great journey with us.  We are just getting started!  In less than a year we will be filling coliseums with masses of people!  We believe it!  We serve a HUGE GOD…a God that is master of the universe…He is omnipotent and has NO limits!  As long as we put Him first and as Rex Crain said…focus on the outcome and not the income God will pour his favor out on us.  Remember, our ultimate goal is to LOVE people and bring them into His kingdom.  Your eternal life and the eternal lives of those you love is what matters most. 

David also told us that the Fab 5 promo is a HUGE, HUGE SUCCESS!!!  IT WORKS!!!   Tulsa Blue Diamonds Tim & Emily Wilson said that everyone they have given one to has signed up!  If you haven’t made your bags yet you need to get movin’ because there are people out there who desperately need RVL!   There are people out there that God has called YOU to speak to…has called YOU to deliver His message of hope, health & prosperity to.

The bottom line is this team…this COMPANY, this TEAM, & YOU are BLESSED!  We are blessed & highly favored!  You are about to witness the blessings of God like you have never seen!  Please make sure you are giving THANKS each day for what is already happening in the spiritual realm and is getting ready to show itself in the natural realm.  You see the way God works is the exact opposite of the way the world works.  In God’s economy you must BELIEVE it before you can SEE it.  By SPEAKING it you bring it to you from the spiritual world into the natural world.  This is WHY we are always talking to you about the importance of your WORDS…the importance of speaking love, properity and success into your life. As Paula White says…your mouth is a supernatural instrument for God.  Your words create your world!  God has a storehouse of blessings waiting for YOU but He can’t release them when your words do not align with His plan for your life. You gotta SPEAK it to RECEIVE it!  Kent & I have been SPEAKING it into YOUR lives!  For believers and nonbelievers we cover you with His blood.  We cover you with his favour.

As God blesses your business please remember to GIVE BACK.  God will not continue to give TO us what He can’t move THROUGH US.  We must give to the MORE Project, we must make sure we are blessing God with our first fruits.  When you honor God with the first 10% of your income He will multiply the other 90%.  Believe me…He can do more with your 10% than you can do with your entire 100%!  (Click for Kids is a great program…check it out)

I want you to go out today with a BIG, BIG SMILE on your face and when people ask you WHY you’re in such a great mood YOU TELL THEM…IT IS GOD!!!  God is blessing me!  He is showering me with His love and blessings!  You see… people will WANT THAT!  People today want to be around happy, excited people!  We as Christians are supposed to be the LIGHT of the world.  We are supposed to bring people to Christ through our positive attitudes and loving spirits!  YOU have EVERYTHING in the world to be HAPPY about today!  God has confirmed that we are in His will and are getting ready to experience a MASSIVE EXPLOSION!!!  WOO…HOOOOO!!!!!

I leave you this morning with great LOVE in my heart for YOU. Regardless of where you are at on your spiritual journey we want you to know that God loves YOU!   We love YOU!  We are here for YOU!  We are a phone call away. 
God Bless You dear friends!  There is no other team in the world we would rather be taking this amazing journey with! 
THANK YOU for your prayers this week for John’s family. The outpouring of love and support is so appreciated!

Have a wonderful day!  God Bless You!!!

2-18-2011 Weigh in and Quote of the Day

Morning weigh in: Margaret is at set point-but the inches are coming off-she is really doing great. I dropped -.6 (193.6) a new personal low, 5.4 lbs from goal.
Talked with a Dr. Mark in Raleigh last night-he commented that the nutritional value of the RVL is such that every person in the world should have this as part of their daily diet. Let us show this to you, 803-468-6482 or 236-3323
Thanks Wilber and Margaret

A few Points to Remember

I hope you all are having a great start to this week, Margaret and I had a great weekend- I ended up being a bad fellow (Wilber) with my eating and from Friday till this morning I managed to find 1 ½ pounds that I had lost last week. Anyway-it happens and they say that confession is good for the soul-so now I feel better.
I want to congratulate everyone that is on the RVL weight management system and remind us all of a few points,

First, the capsules in our system are part of the total system, they really will have no effect if we separate them from the shakes and   mid morning and mid-after noon snacks. We’ve had lots of folks calling wanting to know if they can buy the capsules separately, the point is that we have all been subjected to the thought process-“Just take a pill and fix it.”
Some folks are getting the system and just taking the capsules and eating as normal-not going to work this way. We need to think on the lines that we are consuming 1200-1400 calories and feeling great and not hungry, or craving. Margaret and I have found that this does work.

Second, We are trying to create a new way of life for our bodies, a new way of eating, of thinking of food-this is a life time process not a quick fix. We are made up mostly of water, so water is a very important part of your daily intake- 8-8oz glasses or more, exercise is important and that does not need to be sweating to the oldies (although it can), walking is great (what we were made for) a mile or two and that should take no more than 30 minutes, can be part of your morning, noon or night. I find morning is best as nothing else gets in the way or the I’ll do it later’ dosen’t get in the way.

Third, we are all in this together in some way shape or form-need help or a reassuring pat on the back, call us or if you want we can start a group and support one another, let us know- we are here for one another and are happy to help.

Fourth, Please go to and use the free system to track you weight loss, plan your meals, track your BMI, water intake and share your story. Remember to register for the $5000.00 drawings that will be done every 12 weeks, only four times –one guy and one girl to win each time. MonaVie goal is to have 1,000,000 lbs lost this yr and that amount of money raised for the MORE project. Details are on line at the above link.

Thanks Margaret and Wilber

Valentines Day

Margaret and I want to thank all of you that have become a part of our lives, through our photography and through MonaVie. We appreciate and love you all. I'm reposting an email that we got from our friends and  business partners Sherry and Kent. I think this says it all.
Wilber and Margaret

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

Kent & I wish each of you a wonderful Valentine’s Day today!  We LOVE you dearly and are so very blessed to have YOU in our lives!  Through your friendship over the past 3 years God has demonstrated the true meaning of life to us.
We have learned that the eternal value we all seek is found in the love we give to each other.  To love another human being and to sew into their lives is the REAL GIFT of our journey here on earth.  All of God’s commandments for us, His people, can be summed up in only two…Love God & Love Each Other.

THANK YOU for opening your minds and hearts to this wonderful product and opportunity.  THANK YOU for all the love and support you have given to us over the past 3 years.  Your heartfelt emails and phone calls mean so much to us.  YOU are the reason we do what we do.  YOU are the reason God has called us to be here.  This business is SO much bigger than juice, so much bigger than weight loss, so much bigger than each of us.  There is something so very powerful about like minded people coming together with a common vision, with a shared dream and an unwillingness to give up in hard times.  There is something so very special about people who set their minds and keep them set.  There is something so life changing about the past 3 years we have traveled this road with you. Think about it…look at all of the lives that have been renewed and restored as a result of God’s vision. When God places a vision in your heart there is nothing that can stand in your way of seeing it to fruition.  I just love the story of Joseph.  He is a great example of how God’s love can turn any situation around for our good.  Love conquered jealousy, hatred, unforgiveness & anger.  Instead of seeking revenge on the brother’s who mistreated him he loved them.  God elevated Him to such high levels in life because of the love he showed to others.  In this business we take a lot of criticism & rejection from family members, friends & people who are simply negative nellies.  But you must realize it just part of the journey.  There will always be people who don’t “get” it, people who are determined to live their lives unhappily.  But Kent & I believe that many of them will be transformed by WHAT they see happen on this team…by how we live our lives and the unconditional love that our team continues to show to them.  We love them period!  Whether they choose to “see” it or not we LOVE them!  LOVE is the glue that holds it all together! 

We look forward to seeing you this Thursday night, Feb. 17th at the Holiday Inn, Brownstone (7:30pm). 
We have missed you!  We have so much to share with you!

Again,  Happy Valentine’s Day to the very best team in all of MonaVie!  2011 is YOUR YEAR to shine!!!

Sharing Sherry's E Mail

Kelly's Testimony

Kelly’s story… 

On reflecting about Valentine's Day and all that it means I could not help but think that the greatest gifts we can all receive is the love of God, the love of each other, and our health. I recently heard during a sermon that love is selfless and sacrificial and I truly do believe that to be true. When we put others needs and the desire to serve ahead of ourselves we are truly blessed.  The happiest people I know are also the most unselfish people I have ever met.

Back in the summer when I met you Sherry, my health issues seemed to be multiplying.  I shared with you how I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, had arthritis in my knees that kept me from doing all the vigorous exercise I so loved to do and was also awaiting major surgery for  a separate issue. I thank God for meeting you and for being willing to share MonaVie with me. You even insisted you would help me after my surgery. TaIlk about selfless and sacrificial love!
Praise God I did not need that major surgery thanks to Monavie Mmun and the miracle it did in my body!  I truly believe that when we give our bodies the nutrition God intended it to originally have, our bodies can heal. When I started drinking Monavie I thought I was drinking it to get stronger for my surgery.  I never thought I would wind up canceling my surgery!!!  Also, thanks to Monavie Active I am back at the gym exercising and have lost weight on the Monavie RVL.   I have not felt this healthy in ages!

Shortly before I met you I was feeling  absolutely physically drained and struggling to keep up with my 3 young children ages 3, 5 and 7.  I remember being on my knees in my bedroom praying to the Lord, "Lord I know I am just a stay at home mother and I am not in some research laboratory somewhere with a microscope, but please let me in on a natural secret. I know you are leading me not to take medicine but to find a natural solution.  Lord, you are able; reveal it to me."  At that period in my life I was led over and over again to Jeremiah 33:3  " Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know". He is faithful and DID answer!  Meeting you, Sherry was a divine appointment and I thank you for your endless supply of selfless and sacrificial love.  Thank you for sharing Monavie and introducing me to some of the nicest people I have ever met.

 All of the blessings I have received  brought me to one final question as we approach Valentine's Day. How can I show love this week in a tangible way and give back?   This week I have decided I am going to be very purposeful in my conversations and share MonaVie and my testimony with several people on my list.   Who wouldn't benefit from this wonderful product???   I loved the idea of giving away a 3 day supply of MonaVie RVL for folks to try for free. I am planning to do that as well and then follow up. 

As I have said to you before, Sherry, I do believe that this product is God breathed and endorsed by Science. I believe His divine favor is on this company and I am excited to see the blessings fall on people who so willingly share His selfless and sacrificial love!   Let's continue to Pray It Forward in 2011!!!

We are so thankful to Kelly for her wonderful testimony.  I met Kelly at my daughter’s school over the summer.  Both of our children we participating in a basketball camp and we were sitting next to each other.
Little did I know when I went to that game that God would place Kelly in my life.  She has an incredible testimony with the product and is now engaging in the business.   How GREAT God is!
ASK Him to send YOU the right people and He absolutely will!
This is WHAT it’s about!!!  Helping people!!!  It’s not complicated! It’s SO simple!  It’s WHAT God put us on this planet to do! 
LOVE & HELP PEOPLE!  When your goal is to HELP PEOPLE God will place the ones in front of you that need helping.  He does this because your motives are pure and your intent is to be a blessing.  The best advice Kent & I can give you is to ASK GOD each day…
Who can I help today God?” 

This morning I was reading a book by our R3Global Pastors Ed & Cheryl Henderson entitled For the Love of God and these words jumped out from the page at me:
“God knows exactly what you need and He will bring the right people across your path at the perfect time.  They may or may not have a title, and may not be exactly what you are expecting, but they will be the right people.  When you have experienced a divine appointment, you will love God even more because you realize He is always working on your behalf.  You just have to believe it and be on alert for those God-arranged meetings.” (p. 61).

This is a book we bought at TPC in Jan.  It is a small, easy book to read and is WONDERFUL!  It is available on
It is a personal testimony of an everyday, non-famous couple who God has used to reach thousands of people for Jesus.  They help you understand how they leaned to love God extravagantly and the challenges one will face and overcome on that journey.
We are blessed to have Ed & Cheryl as leaders of our New Life Network.  Did you know that they are available to YOU? 
Brig partnered up with them more than 20 years ago to follow-up and councel with new believers and business associates of R3Global.  By being a member of our R3Global family they are available to YOU and your family.  You see, this MonaVie mission we’re on is about SO much more than juice and weight loss…it’s about HELPING people in all aspects of their lives.  It’s about LOVING & HELPING people with this thing called LIFE!  We love you so much and we are here for YOU!  God Bless You!  Have a wonderful Sunday!

Repost from Sherry Braswell's Blog

Leadership…what is it?

Trapped in every seed is a forest.  In every boy God hides a man.  In every girl a woman.
In every cow a herd.  In every fish a school.  Your potential is in your GIFT.
“The seed of everything is it itself.”  Your future is trapped in you.  Your future is not in the economy of the world.

Your future is bright.  You will prosper.   You have what you need to succeed inside you.  You must stay away from environments that do not germinate your seeds.  Stay away from “toxic” people…people who are negative and bring you down. This is WHY you stay in touch with your MonaVie family and come to the meetinsgs…so your seeds can become a tree!   You CAN make a difference in your generation.  PURSUE YOUR GIFT OF LEADERSHIP!
Don’t go looking for it outside yourself.  It is buried on the inside of YOU!

Trees never eat their own fruit.  Whatever you were born to do it’s not for you…it is to serve humanity…to make other peoples lives better.  Your success will depend on how successful you help others to be. 
“An army of sheep led by a lion will always defeat an army of lions led by a sheep.”

Did you know that “leadership” is a paradox?
The LION is the “king” of the jungle but HE IS NOT…
-the tallest
-the strongest
-the biggest
-the most powerful
-the most intelligent
But HE is the KING…the Leader!

There is hope for you…you don’t have to be the tallest, strongest, smartest…to be the leader.

The KEY to a lion’s leadership is:
1)   Attitude of mental conviction about himself
2)   Belief in the potential of his creative skills & resources for the benefit of his objective.
3)   Confidence in his ability to achieve his objectives and accomplish his goals.

In other words…the LION is as “big” as the thinks!
(I highly recommend the book “The Magic of Thinking Big”…on

YOU have the “seed” of leadership inside of you…YES YOU DO…God made you that way!
God never created you to be dominated by another human being.  In Gen 1:26 “God created man to have dominion over fish, birds, cattle, anything that creeps”.  It does NOT say “man.”  This is why so many folks are unhappy in a “job.” This company sets people free from domination and helps them to chart their own destiny.  We are ALL leaders…God created us all to lead in our “gift.”

The heart of true leadership is vision, destiny and passion. Your passion must override your personal comfort.  All leaders sacrifice to succeed.  Never trust a man that’s never come through a crisis…Leaders never wear metals on their chest but sores on their back.  Greatness always demands a price.
Leaders have vision.  How do you know a “vision” is genuine”?
A true vision will always benefit others & make the world a better place.  It’s only about “you” it’s called “ambition.”
If your vision is to help others…success will come to you!

The greatest gift God ever gave man is not the gift of sight but is the gift of vision.
Vision shows you what can be.  Your eyes show you what is.
Sight is a function of the eyes.  Vision is a function of the heart.
Never invite anyone to follow you without a “vision.”

What we love about MonaVie & relational marketing is that it forces us to look deep within ourselves for that leader…for that potential that God gave each of us.  Sometimes we must venture well out of our comfort zone and stretch ourselves to limits we otherwise thought impossible…and it is there we find the “victory.”  After all…don’t we all want to die “empty”?

(Great books on leadership found on  We highly recommend  leadership author Myles Munroe)

Our goal is to help you reach your goals & your dreams by helping you to tap into that “leader” inside of you!
God created you for GREAT things…you are special, you are unique, you are LION!

Have a great day!!!

Step out of the Boat…

by sbraswell on Feb.08, 2011, under Inspiration and Motivation
 Get out of the boat…take ACTION!  Don’t miss God’s plan for your life because you are afraid to take action.  Robert Kiyosaki said the one thing he learned from being in Vietnam was to ACT!  God puts “faith” in all of us but we must “release” it.  To release your faith you must step out of the boat!  You can kill your dreams by “overthinking” them!  Don’t get caught in the deadly analysis by paralysis trap…just MOVE!  Remember the story of David & Goliath in the Bible?  David wisely DID NOT LISTEN to his negative friends when they said Goliath was too big to kill…he RAN quickly to the battleline…while speaking words of victory…he knew that Goliath was too big to MISS!
If you stay in the boat you’re in you’ll be miserable.  God shows up when YOU get OUT of the boat!  He doesn’t get in the boat with you.  The only way for God to do something supernatural in your life is for YOU to take a chance and get out of the boat.  FEAR does NOT come from God…it comes from Satan.  And Satan wants nothing more than for your fear to paralyze you and keep you from your destiny.  YES…you will have to get out of your comfort zone…you can’t be comfortable & GROW!
But once you step out & see that it wasn’t that hard…your CONFIDENCE soars! The thought of picking up that phone is so much worse than actually DOING it!  When your confidence and your God esteem (not self esteem) increase your faith increases & you release God’s supernatural power into your life…& THIS is when you really start to see positive growth & change in your life! 
Step out TODAY & do BOLD THINGS!  ITS that person that you have been putting off.  Call that person that you have been afraid to call!  JUST DO IT!  Don’t think it to death…just ACT!  Fear is always gonna come against you.  You must TALK back to it by saying OUT LOUD…”I will NOT fear…I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. I cast out fear in Jesus’ name.”
 What is the boat you need to step out of?  Maybe it’s a boat of your past.  Maybe there is stuff buried so deep down in your heart that you have never told anyone.  You need to GET IT OUT OF YOU!  The Bible tells us to “confess our faults to one another that we may be healed.”  Anything you have to hide has power over you!  Get it up and get it out of you!  Maybe your boat is someone you crave approval from.  You need to confront whatever it is that is holding us back…whatever it is that you are afraid of.  God has given YOU His power so YOU can do things that are hard to do.  Notice I said…HIS power…not YOURS!  If you’re been trying to do it on your own…forget it…you can’t!  I tried that approach for years & years…believe me…it doesn’t work!
 Peter was the only disciple with enough courage to get out of the boat when Jesus instructed.  He chose to ACT & trust Jesus as opposed to being passive and indecisive.  So many people simply choose NOT to make a decision not realizing that “indecision” is a decision!  It’s seems easy to stay safe and not take any chances in life or not make any real decisions.  This is LIE that the devil would have you believe. But staying safe is actually the risky route. Courage & faith are the SAFE decisions…they are the ACTIONS that will set you free & give you happiness & peace.  Get a littleFIRE in you!  You are the ONLY ONE who can do anything about your life! Take some responsibility for your own joy!  Don’t get so caught up in what other people think.  Robert Kiyosaki said you will never been successful in ANYTHING in life if you have to have other people’s approval!  Who careswhat they think? The only opinion who truly matters is God’s & He says YOU ROCK!!! You are His creation & YOU are wonderful in His eyes!  My attitude is this…I know who I am in Christ…I know my heart is pure and seeks to help people.  If others don’t see that it’s there problem…not mine!  I move on to the next person who is ready to “receive” what I have to “give.”
 God has placed the POWER of the universe inside YOU!  YES…YOU!  He is just waiting for you to realize it!  Meditate on statement today…”I can do whatever I need to do through Christ whostrengthens me.” Don’t just read it, don’t just say it once…MEDITATE on it!  Meditation turns information into REVELATION!  This is the deal my friends…people and situations WILL disappoint you.  That’s just a fact.  You will disappoint people and they will disappoint you!  We are human!  We make mistakes!  We are born into a fleshly body that craves me, me, me!  Don’t hold grudges, forgive quickly and easily just as God forgives YOU everyday!   Don’t put your FAITH in people…put your FAITH in God!  He will send you the right people at the right time for your business if you persevere and don’t give up!  Once you accept this and are convinced of it you’ll be FREE!!!  Stop asking “why” and just know that He can turn all things around for your good if you’ll keep your mouth positive and in line with His word.  With Him YOU can do anything you need to do!
 Now…get out of that boat & take ACTION!!!  Kent & I BELIEVE in YOU!  You are in business for yourself but not by yourself!  You have a whole family of people who support you, who believe in you & will help YOU to reach all of your dreams and goals!
 Have a great day!  We love you!  We look forward to seeing you at our next big meeting onThursday, Feb. 17th  @ 7:30 at the Brownstone Hotel in Raleigh!  Let’s take some ACTION & pack the house!


Morning Weigh in: Margie has reversed the damage-dropped a pound, back on the right road again. I dropped two pounds-(194.2) just 6 lbs to goal - not sure why the big drop, other than it is just what the good Lord wants. Found a great little blender-Hamilton Beach Single Serve-Wal-Mart & under $16.00 - excellent unit. Does one shake perfect!!!

2-9-2011 Weigh in and Update from Sherry

This morning found Margaret at set point and I reversed most of the damage that I did in the last 5-6 days. When we both have something positive to talk about I will start with the numbers again. I know it seems so unfair that the fellas lose faster than the ladies-but I guess that this is in God's plan too. Just make sure that you are getting your exercise and your water, be mindful of that evening meal - count the calories - it is very important. The other point is that a "Little Debbie's" is really not a healthy snack in the morning or mid after noon. You need the MonaVie food bar - it is a balanced part of the program. The other item that would be good is raw veggies, carrots, grape tomatoes, celery - etc, some fruit, but please not sugar filled little desert cakes. That is like going to reverse everything you did the day before.
The following is from Sherry Braswell-business associate with her husband Kent-super great folks.

HELLO Diamonds!!!

WOW!!!  What a GREAT week we’re having!!!  RVL is knocking it out of the park!  13 Shake it parties booked yesterday!!!  Woo…hoooo!!!! Our team is on FIRE!!!  Sizzle!  Sizzle!  Can you feel it through this email?!
 The results of people’s incredible weight loss is spreading like wildfire through a dry forest! 
Where else can you go and lose 70 lbs in 82 days? God is SO very good!!!

Please check our team calendar for tastings & events coming up!  Go to  Click on Calendar. If you are receiving this email you are part of our family and these tastings are for YOU!  When we tell you to plug into the system the TEAM CALENDAR is part of the system that has been created to help YOU grow & build your business. The Skin Institute (TSI)  is having tastings at their office in Apex consistently throughout Feb. March & April!  They have expanded their beautiful location and are excited to share MonaVie with their friends, family and clients.  We encourage you to plug into these Shake It Parties and bring your friends!  We also have many home shake it Parties you may plug into.  I will be at Mike & Elaine Jolley’s house in Apex tomorrow nightplease bring a friend(s) & join us!

This is a VERY exciting time team!  To be on the ground floor of a Tsunami wave of business is a huge blessing!
NC is blowing up and we want YOU to be a part of it!  All you gotta do to get started is PLUG into what’s already going on!  Our goal is to help YOU introduce MonaVie to YOUR friends & family!  And we want YOU to have a blast while doing it!  We had SO much fun last night at the Apex Shake it Party!  We laughed, we shared & we connected with people!  CONNECTION is the key!  Building relationships is the KEY!  And you can’t build relationships sitting at home in front of your TV!  Yes!  Commitments must be made if you’re going to change your life!  I heard Pastor Kerry Shook say this morning that our “commitments reflect what we value in life.”  Our commitments determine where we will be next week, next month & next year.  Commit to giving this business 1 hour of your day…every day and in a year you will be amazed at the growth of your business.  You will be amazed at your new life! Not only will you have more financial freedom… you will have more friends, more peace, & more joy!  You see…God did not make us to be noncommittal.  Kerry says that people who make no commitments in life are selfish and selfishness leads to an unhappy life.  When we commit our time, our money, and our efforts to one another we are showing our love for each other.   Yes…this business requires your commitment. You must be committed to helping other people, you must be committed to getting out of your comfort zone & stretching yourself, you must be committed to pressing through the negative people.  And you must be committed to sharing the message when you don’t “feel” like it.  Feelings are fickle and Satan uses our feelings to distract us and get off track.  Commitment means doing what we know we should when we don’t feel like it. As Joyce Meyer says…the battlefield is the mind & we must renew it daily!  Have you read Brig’s new book?  THAT will renew your mind! WOW!!!  I gave that book to a friend of mine who enrolled in the business a couple of months ago and she said she LOVED it!  It inspired her!  She got to get inside of the life of a man that has walked the walk and is living proof that perseverance and faith off pay in a BIG WAY!

Our next meeting is a BIG ONE…A VERY IMPORTANT ONE!  Please mark your calendars…it is next week!  It is at the Holiday Inn, Brownstone Thursday, Feb. 17th @ 7:30 pm. We are counting on your attendance and your support!  Please CALL everyone you know & BRING THEM!  Tell them…no excuses…I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH TO LET YOU MISS THIS!!!   Kent & I have will be training you on HOW to approach folks with RVL and how to jump start your business for the busiest time of the year!
  We are SO excited!  We are filled with so much passion & faith for YOUR FUTURE!  God has HUGE PLANS for you this year!  Woo…hooooo!!! We can’t wait to see YOU!!!
