Is there money in your backyard? Prosperity and Tumbleweeds

As I browse through our Mindset Mastery Program participant discussions, I really enjoy reading about all of the experiences and successes. Here’s a copy of one post that I felt compelled to share with you now:

One of the biggest lightbulb moments for me in reading the Jackrabbit Factor is that “there is enough for everyone.” God wants ALL his children to have abundance. There is not “the big ONE” just waiting to change your life.  There are “mountains of gold” to be discovered by all those who seek. I lived for years thinking that wealth was for the best and the brightest and the luckiest.  I was thinking competitively and not creatively. My husband and I acted shamelessly like crazy dogs on many occasions. To no avail, I might add.

One of the things that helps me overcome doubt and fear and push right through that terror barrier is a little game I have created for myself. It is like the Where’s Waldo of abundance. I actively look for people who are prospering and see that abundance can be born in many creative ways.

“For example, the other day I was on the internet and found an article on a woman who lives in Kansas making 40K a year selling……are you ready for this…….TUMBLEWEEDS! Those awful pesky things that blow across the road and get stuck underneath our cars on the highway, and she is raking it in. It started as a joke because she was merely learning how to create a web site and to her astonishment people placed orders! NASA, Hollywood, and many others. Her idea came to her because there are always so many of them blowing across her land. In jest she believed that was her greatest asset and it turned out to be true.

“I look for these stories now. And the more I look the more I find. The internet, newspapers, conversations I hear in public and so on. I hear people making money in the most amazing ways. The sad thing is that a few years ago I would have read that same article and had an internal temper tantrum because I didn’t think of it. Or that it is not fair that she could discover something like that I was not so blessed to have myself. Once again, competitive and not creative. Now I read it and smile, smile, smile and think that if God smiled down on her with tumbleweeds then there is MOST DEFINITELY something for me. It gives me hope. And for me, this little game helps my terror barrier. I look for the success in all those around me and I feel it for myself. Try really hard to not look for the possible failures, because it will be all you see. Hang in there! It is coming…….this is your time. God loves you.” – Amanda J., Mindset Mastery Program participant

Unplanned Movie Review

Looking for the Tumbleweeds post? CLICK HERE

What would a woman feel, watching this movie, if she has already had an abortion? 

My husband and I saw Unplanned last night. This is the first time we’ve ever paid to watch an R-rated film at the theater, but trusted the feedback from friends who said the MPAA rating was “off”.

I really only had ONE main question on my mind:

*** What would a woman feel, watching this movie, if she has already had an abortion? ***

It was rated R for graphic and disturbing images by the MPAA, an admission that dismembering a fetus with a vacuum is disturbing. So in many parts of the country, a girl can GET an abortion without parent consent, but she can’t WATCH a movie about abortion without it.

So, was the movie only made for pro-lifers?
Who else would even WANT to see it?

This was my curiosity.

I wanted to watch the movie through the eyes of women who, perhaps at one time, found themselves in a crisis pregnancy of their own, who felt like they had no other options, and who were pressured to abort.

How would THESE women feel, watching an anti-abortion movie? How could they possibly WANT to watch it, at the risk of feeling triggered by memories of their own trauma, or of feeling movie-induced guilt? (Having not yet seen it, but assuming this is what the movie would cause.)

Why would ANYONE want to subject themselves to that?

I had to find out if I could recommend the movie to THESE women.

I read reviews that said that the movie was about LOVE and REDEMPTION, but none of the trailers really provided any significant glimpses into that. They all seemed to focus on horror and grief.

But, like many movies, I found that the action reel was NOT an accurate representation of the experience this film provided.

I don’t know if I should offer a spoiler-alert here, because the movie’s power doesn’t rely on surprises – it’s relatively predictable. But I’m going to share some things that are not revealed in the trailers.

First of all, the disturbing images happen during the early scenes of the film, showing one woman’s narrated experience with having a vacuum aspirated abortion, and then later a chemically-induced abortion (from a pill). The rest of the movie shows how she deals with the memory of her experiences.

At first, she buries the memories as deeply as she can, and throws herself into the cause of helping other women in crisis, dedicating her life to giving women the care they need. Her passion and heart for helping women is genuine.

But then… (insert trailer clip here)…

… and she spends the next segment of the film dealing with her feelings of deep regret for her own abortions, and for participating at a leadership level in an organization that was consciously deceiving thousands of women in crisis who were given mistruths about their procedures, and who were not fully informed of their options.

The movie was masterful at helping the viewer feel a good deal of what this woman felt all along the spectrum (as this is a true story). In the end, you feel (with her) a complete sense of being healed – her memories are still sad and probably always will be, but the remorse, horror, and grief is powerfully resolved, and she feels wholly loved, forgiven, and restored.

If someone had told me this before watching the film, I’m not sure I would have believed it was possible – not possible to experience, let alone possible to portray on the big screen. But I am convinced that this movie speaks truth. It illustrates how God can reach and restore a person, no matter how dark, fallen, or lost that person may feel. Here is a woman that was complicit in over 20,000 fetal terminations AND came to feel the full weight of it – but then ultimately felt that burden lifted. Watch the movie to feel her healing with her.

To sum up, if you or anyone you know has had an abortion or participated in one, and want to feel and remember it differently than perhaps you do now, I strongly encourage you to watch the movie.

I’m now convinced that these women are exactly who the movie was made for.

I invite you to see and feel it all, even the darker side of it, because feeling her Godly sorrow with her is precisely what makes the feelings of relief, joy, and awe possible.
