Want to Start 2021 Off Right?

29 Dec
Wisdom is the Principal Thing!

FREE Access to the 31-Day Wisdom Challenge

Want to Start 2021 Off Right?

God wasn’t surprised or caught off guard by the events of 2020.

His plans for you haven’t changed, regardless of all the current events!

His wisdom is still supreme and applies to your current circumstances.

God’s wisdom works best in tough situations where fulfilling the desires of your heart seems impossible.

God’s plans for you to experience even more of His goodness, favor, and prosperity are still in place and available to you through the guidance of His wisdom.

I believe 2020 was a huge setup for you, and me as kingdom-minded people to be able to serve and create value by solving problems.

Joseph’s are created in times of crisis when problems abound.

I believe 2021 will continue to be a time of unprecedented opportunity for massive kingdom impact…by those who are full of hope and wisdom from above.

If you’re like me…and you want 2021 to be your biggest and best year ever…

I want to personally invite you to join me, and a host of spiritual and marketplace leaders as we kick-off 2021 prioritizing the Wisdom of God with a 31-day journey through the book of Proverbs with the
31 Day Wisdom Challenge starting January 1st

Brian Simmons, Kris Vallotton, Graham Cooke, Lana Vawser, Jennifer Allwood, Pete Vargas…are just a few of the 31 incredible speakers and leaders we have assembled to lead us into this deep dive into the Wisdom of God.

Each day of The 31-Day Wisdom Challenge, a well-known spiritual leader or Kingdom entrepreneur will share his or her powerful testimony and revelation from their personal study and application of the Book of Proverbs.

This is a glimpse into the intimate workings of these successful leaders’ relationship with God and His wisdom expressed through the Book of Proverbs.

Proverbs 4:7 (KJV) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

James 1:5 (KJV)  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Will you Join Me In Dedicating January to Obtaining Much Needed Wisdom that The Lord Freely Gives and wants his sons and daughters to have.

Dear Kingdom-Minded Authors and Storytellers ages, 45-75+

Do you relate to the ’70s & 80’s music?  One hit song I could relate to was by Bob Seger called, “Turn the Page”?  He told a wonderful story in that song about doing what he loved but was real about the reality of doing it.   Have you found yourself wanting to Turn the Page to a New Chapter but haven’t because the reality of doing it is honestly freaking difficult sometimes!

Maybe you have become overwhelmed when you have tried to Turn the Page for various reasons such as you are technically challenged, you believe to publish a book would be too expensive, or marketing it would be too difficult, or no one would want to read your story, or you have “writer’s block” which basically is fear of rejection…blah, blah, blah…..

I don’t make light of your reasons for not going forward because I’ve been right there with you!  However, I was miserable and had to make a choice to Turn the Page and push all of the excuses aside!  What I could do I did, but what I didn’t know how to do, I found someone to help me.  Now I have 15 years of experience, 37 books published, 5 are #1 Bestselling, and have helped other authors Turn the Page to a New Chapter in their lives.  I want to encourage you if we did it, so can you!

This is why I am offering the FREE 5 Day Turn the Page to a New Chapter Challenge!  Please don’t get me wrong, although the 5 Day Turn the Page to a New Chapter Challenge is a FREE Challenge, it is not cheap and will cost you something to do it!  But haven’t you already paid too much in time, in pain and in frustration by not taking action?  May I be real and honest with you?  The only way you will Turn the Page to your New Chapter is to make a choice to do it!

5 Day Creative Journals Challenge for Gifts or Profit

26 Aug

Create and Publish for Gifts or Profit!

5 Day Creative Journals Challenge

For Gifts or Profit

Learn How to Create Your Own

Journals, Planners, & Activity Books

Attention Authors, Artist, or Creative DIY Moms:

My name is Christine Gilliam Hornback and I am a #1 Bestselling Author and an Artist.  I’ve always loved diaries, journals, and even notebooks since I was a little girl as I felt the Lord used them to fuel my imagination as a writer and an artist.

One day as I was writing in my prayer journal, I felt the Lord gave me an idea to combine my two passions of writing and art into creating Journals and other books, such as diaries, planners, notebooks, and even activity books for children.  That was a couple of years ago and about 37 books later!

The good news is that you don’t have to be an author or an artist to create and publish journals, planners, diaries, or activity books.  You, also, will not have to buy expensive software to create and publish them either!

I will show you how to get started as I teach you step by step in my 5 Day Creative Journals Challenge. You will learn the same process I used to create and publish all of my own books which include all of the above, plus my #1 Bestselling fiction and non-fiction books.

SIGN UP>>> HERE

Once you learn the process of creating and publishing books in this 5 Day Creative Journals Challenge, I believe you will be amazed at the creative ideas that you probably already have to continue creating many more of your own books!

The icing on the cake will be that you can either give them as wonderful creative gifts to your family and friends, or you can possibly create extra income for your household by selling them!

A sampling of a few of my journals, planners, diaries that I’ve created.  Several of these I have designed using my original artwork to the covers!

Christine Gilliam Hornback's Journals, Diaries, Planners, and Puzzle Books

Creating and Designing Book Covers using my own Artwork is a blast, this is just another perk of knowing how to publish my own books and having a wonderful time doing it! When you do your purpose, it doesn’t feel like work!

Where will you hop to next?

19 May

Where will you hop to next?

Where Will You Hop To Next?

Where will you hop to next? I hope that this post finds all of you well!  The past couple of months many of you have probably had huge adjustments to make, especially if you worked outside of the home, and your children went to public or private schools.  The experience may have you asking where do I turn or “Hop to next?” However, for me, honestly, not a whole lot has changed.  I am a homeschool Mom and an Entrepreneur who runs an online business from my home.   The reason I am writing is that I wanted to possibly help those who might have been forced into the online space, or perhaps you’re like me and have done various online businesses.  Regardless I hope to encourage you and possibly add some valuable lessons I’ve learned that have gained some wisdom.  For the newbies, this may be a lesson that will save you years of wasted time, and for those who have been seeking success as an Entrepreneur, especially online, I hope I can lend some experience to your knowledge and maybe help you as well!

Have you ever been in a cycle where it seems you’ve hopped from one thing to another?  Oh, I’ve learned a lot in those cycles, and you probably have to,  but for some reason, the implementation process never happens or the change never comes that we hope will happen? For many years I felt as though I was in this cycle of just going around the mountain over and over again.  It has only been in the past several years or so that I’ve been making progress, but honestly,  even though I was going slowly before I was still making progress because I was investing in myself.  I wasn’t failing or wasting time! I want you to be encouraged, that you’ve not wasted time either, but that the Lord wants to redeem it!  Let this year which has seemingly knocked things out of sync be a huge part of your success story!

Over the years, when I just felt weary of learning one more thing, I have reached out and tried to find help.   I’ve invested in myself by purchasing several programs from “Online gurus or experts” who were supposed to show me their exact systems on how they made their fortunes and how I could do it too!  Don’t get me wrong, Some were very good, and I’ve learned a lot from them, but never the “Secret Sauce” that I thought I would just magically receive to help me to finally arrive at the peak of my business that I hoped for!  Who’s fault was that their’s or mine? Mine of course!   Do you want to know why they couldn’t show me?  Because I’ve learned there is NO ONE BEST SECRET that fits everybody!  There are many “Secrets”!  When all of  “Your Best Secrets” are implemented and working in unison, successes are achieved at running an online business or any or possibly just being a great Mom, or better person!  Are you ready to know some of my best secrets?  I am holding nothing back these are my best? Here are a few of the “secret steps I’ve learned, I am sure there are many more that you may know yourself or could add:

  1. Always do what is right, not what is easy! I am a firm believer in the Golden Rule, Do on to others as you would have them do onto you.  Serve people well, and you will be treated well, and if not, do it anyway!  Sow the good seeds and you will reap a good harvest!
  2. Procrastion is your enemy! Take your Next Best Step! When?  NOW! Yes, you already know what that is, even though you’ve convinced yourself that you don’t!  James 2:17 King James Version (KJV) 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
  3. Don’t just be a learner,  but implement what you learn immediately, then celebrate those successes. You may hesitate because you want it to be perfect, but do it NOW and tweak it after it’s done!
  4. Yes, find someone you can be confident in to truly teach you if you lack knowledge or wisdom in an area.  
  5. NOTE: The #1Key in finding a good mentor/ coach is to find someone who will teach you about their mistakes as well as their successes! 
  6. Realize that you must do what you know to do, but that it is okay to get help with what you do not have the skills to do or just truly do not enjoy doing.
  7. The more you can learn how to do your own business by implementing what it needs, the more freedom you will have! If you know how to do something and why you’re doing it, when you need employees, you can hire and train them with exactly what you know you need from them.  It’s a win for both you and your employees!
  8. Finally, always leave people better than you found them! Give them more value than they expected!  

Okay, so above was a list of some of my secrets I’ve learned and have done my best to implement! I’ve seen tremendous growth not only in what I do for business but what I do as a human being!  Because of my own growth,  I did want to share another “Best Secret” with you!  This Secret is about a  mentor/coach that has helped me tremendously because I have found that He and his wife have lived up to what I listed as my  #5’s Secret.  Pedro Adao host 100 X Acceleration which is an amazing Online Community and Resource for Christian Entrepreneurs and has been an awesome help to me. Since I have met him and been a part of this amazing and supportive group, in less than a year, my online business, and honestly a lot of my personal life has been transformed forever. Most of the transformation was simply by participating in Pedro’s FREE Challenges.  Pedro Adao and his beautiful wife are extremely generous and serve from a heart of love. Many of the Challenges Pedro hosts are “Taste and See” He invites people in totally free and feeds them with more value in those few short days than many have ever gotten in year-long courses.  So, my secret about Pedro is out, but I have a huge announcement that will allow you to meet him yourself and participate totally FREE in his upcoming challenge.  Pedro will be launching a new Challenge starting on May 25, 2020 at 1:00 PST.  Pedro’s last challenge, which I personally participated in, filled up with over 20,000 people who were absolutely blown away with what he shared. If you want a life-changing experience, with like-minded people and truly where nothing will be held back from you, then you will love Pedro’s latest Challenge!

FREE CHALLENGE: THE MOVEMENT MAKER.

Have you lost your passion to see your dreams fulfilled? Christine offers you a step by step guide to help you go from a place of barrenness to breakthrough! However, Christine gives a big red Warning!
“Birthing, although the most natural and beautiful thing God gave women to do, is not a pretty little job whether in the natural or spiritual. No Mam, it is a dirty, messy job! It requires you to pull strength out of a place that you never even imagined you had. It also means that you will sweat and wrestle within and without to get relieved of the thing that you longed to see and hold more than anything just hours before labor. It is a process where there is no turning back baby! You will give birth to that “Holy thing”! After you deliver, Oh my, how your whole entire world is rocked forever!
