Self Esteem Challenge




Saturday, my husband and I became godparents for the first time. It was an extreme honor and I was humbled as we stood in church and agreed to accept shared responsibility in raising our little niece to be a good person. I loved sharing this day with my husband and got a renewed spirit from it all.

As I looked over the photos, I was reminded that I am still a little self conscious of my figure. Even though I know that my body was gracious enough to allow me to bring my boys into this world, I can't seem to get into shape fast enough. Having babies sure changes ones idea of a perfect body, does't it?

I have shared with you one of my self-esteem challenges. Please comment and tell me about one of your self-esteem challenges. Let's all support one another and remind ourselves that we are beautiful people, with our challenges and flaws being the main reason that we are all so uniquely beautiful!

Book Project Casting Call


My son and I love looking at the sunset every night from our yard. I am so lucky to live in a nice house, have a great family and have the opportunity to make a difference in the community. A few of you have heard that I have been busy brainstorming and writing a super secret book. I am writing to ask for your help. I need stories from teen moms, their grown children, their parents/guardians, their grandparents, their friends, etc. I am working on a book that will unmask the teen pregnancy myths and bring about a new understanding of why teens should wait to become parents and why adults need to do their part in helping those teens learn the skills they need to wait. Join me for a life changing event, as we return to innocence. Leave me your information here or send me an email (carmenalisarios@gmail.com). I can't wait to have the honor of working with you!
