Don't Wait

by B.C. Raines on 01/22/20


Don’t wait to do what you know you are purposed to do. Take a step, even if it is a very small one.  Start today. Start right now. That step could be even as simple as starting to discover what your purpose may be. Our life span here on Earth is so short and unpredictable. We truly can be well and living one moment and the very next moment, not well and/or not even living.

I am encouraging you in this way because I have witnessed (I’m sure you have too) and so many others are experiencing the sudden loss of a loved one. In many cases, the loved one was still so full of expectancy regarding all of the things they would accomplish with the rest of their lives and sometimes with a second chance at life. But suddenly and catching their loved ones by surprise, they leave this world still full of all of the purpose, hopes and dreams that they had come to cherish and anticipate.

Don’t wait. Live your purpose. Tomorrow is not promised. (To be really honest about it, the rest of today is not even promised.) Trust me--there will never be a perfect time. There will never be perfect conditions. There will always be something that seems out of sync but don’t let that stop you from moving forward towards achieving your purpose, your hopes and your dreams.

New Year! New You?

by B.C. Raines on 01/16/20

Yes, it’s a new year. It is even the beginning of a new decade. Commonly during this season, we hear "Happy New Year! Happy New You!" It sounds cute and maybe even encouraging and motivating. The new year portion is true but what about the new you? Is it true?

You see Sisters, we can’t be a “new you” if we bring in old junk into the new year. It’s simply a new year but the same old you showed up in it.

Do a self-check. Did you bring unforgiveness, bitterness, and/or negative habits into the new year? If so, I encourage you to commit to leaving those right here in this point of new year. Don’t keep carrying that toxic stuff expecting something new and better this year. It can’t happen!

Yes, it’s a new year and the new you portion is your choice. Choose wisely! New You?

Join The Celebration

by B.C. Raines on 01/08/20

Happy New Year!!!

I am celebrating a very special milestone—I refer to it as my birth date. No, it’s not the celebration of the day I physically entered into the world. (Although I make a big deal out of that day too; as a matter of fact, I celebrate the entire month of December-smile.)

The birth date that I’m celebrating is my birth announcement to the world on January 7, 2015 that I am an inspirational writer and speaker. Yep, I'm five this week! Who knew what taking that one step would lead to. You see, I had been writing privately for years but on January 7, 2015, I formally introduced my writing to motivate, educate and inspire others.

I encourage you to join the celebration. No, I’m not interested in a big party or any recognition, I want you to join the celebration with me by daring to “go public” with your talents, dreams, ideas and/or goals. I have to tell you, it is very encouraging to me to know that I am exploring the depth of my writing gift. It has been very gratifying and motivating to actually view my own published work.

So again, I encourage you to join the celebration with me by “going public”. I promise you won’t regret it. Hey, be sure to invite me to your “party” so I can return the favor and celebrate with you. There’s an awesome future waiting for you. 

Always remember...Sister U Matter!®

Make Your Christmas List

by B.C. Raines on 12/11/19


When growing up, my brothers and I had to create a list of items that we desired to receive for Christmas. We were given the Sears Catalog and told by my parents to write down the items we wanted. Now, we understood that just because we wrote down the items, it was not a guarantee that we would receive them. This list served two purposes: it gave me hope that I would receive at least one thing from the list and it gave “Santa” an idea of what I wanted.

I was reminded of this ritual a few months ago. I was looking through a catalog making my “Christmas list” of items that I desire for Sister U Matter!® You see, the list gives me a visual of my wants and helps me plan.

So, what about you? What are your plans? Your desires? Have you written them down? If you haven’t written them down, how will you know when you’ve accomplished your goals? How do you know in which direction you are headed? There is a scripture, Habakkuk 2:2, that states “Write down this vision; clearly inscribe it on tablets so one may easily read it”.

I encourage you to make your “Christmas list”. Make your plans and desires easy to read and let’s just see what you will receive. Spread the word…Sister U Matter!®
