/// i am determined




I am determined to live life in the present
      to act bravely
      to inspire creativity
      to love fiercely.

I am determined to change myself so I can change others
      to move in justice
      to respond to opposition with grace
      to give mercy.

I am determined to be my greatest, not for my own accolades, but for the glory of God.

/// living in the &



About two weeks ago I did something I said I'd never do again...

You see, I'm that girl.  I'm the one that gets stopped during perfectly good dinners and told that I should sell such and such product.  I hate that.  I mean HATE that.  At the same time, I'm also the woman telling the person in front of my at the check out line to sign up for the Reasor's shopping card.  "It will save you money at the pump, you know."

The sad part is, I actually mean it.

I used to love spending my summers working at my church's firework stand.  I used the excuse that I loved fireworks because I do.  I love watching other people shooting fireworks.  But that wasn't it all.  I loved selling fireworks.  I love making a deal.

For years, though, I've sworn off.  I've given up my direct selling ways.

Until about two weeks ago when I signed up to be an independent consultant for Mary & Martha. And I'm so very glad I did.




I first discovered Mary & Martha from working as an affiliate of DaySpring.  I love their products and I love what they stand for.  I just love everything about the company.

The cool thing is, I'm pretty sure you will too.

What's not to love?

  • I get to nurture community through hosting and coaching gatherings.
  • I get to help ladies beautify their homes with products that are fair trade.
  • I get to enjoy discounted products that I would be purchasing anyway.
  • I get to find financial freedom doing something I love.


My main purpose in signing up to be an independent consultant for Mary & Martha is to help fund different missions projects.  I plan to return to Paris in the near future.  I'll, of course, have to save for the trip.




I would love for you to check out my website.  After looking through the online catalog, you might find something that you would like to purchase for your home or maybe for a Christmas gift.  Email me at danetteleah {at} gmail {dot} com and I'll get you set up.  Maybe you want to host a gathering. We could do one online or in person.  Email me and we'll get something set up.  But maybe, just maybe, you might look at these products and think to yourself, "This is something I want to do."  Well, waste no time and sign up to be a consultant.  I would be more than happy to sponsor you.  Contact me and we can set up a phone conversation!

Mary & Martha acknowledges that life is busy.  We never can be the Biblical characters of Mary and Martha.  Often, we feel forced to choose one and just resign ourselves to never having the time to just sit at the feet of Jesus.  We are never just one or the other.  We're both and we have to be.

Mary & Martha is all about living in the &.  We are both.  We are Mary.  We are Martha.  Completely devoted to God and completely devoted to serving His mission.

///this weekend


My goal for this weekend is simple.  I want to explore more...find the beauty in the little things...find the beauty of peace.

Oh, and I'm guest posting on the Peony Project's Instagram account.  You can follow along and explore with me!
