Discover Precious Coins with GovMint Key Codes

Building a collection of something usually costs a ton of money – especially if it’s a collection of money. I’m talking here about coin collecting. While people have gathered and hoarded coins, old and new, for their bullion or artistic value for as long as coins have been minted, nowadays it’s getting harder to keep up. That’s why collectors are using hobby and collectibles coupon codes so that they can acquire stuff without regretting whatever it is that they are buying and collecting. After all, it’s no use carrying on a hobby that one cannot afford in the first place.

U.S. silver coins, U.S. gold coins, world coins, paper currency, precious metals, shipwreck and treasure coins, gifts, jewelry: all these, you can find and explore at GovMint’s vast catalog.

Joel Sauceda (CEO Big Value Depot) Believes in Giving Back to the Community

Joel Sauceda is a man of integrity and honesty. It shows up in many ways and one of those ways is his contribution to charities. If you are trying to find out what kind of person Joel Sauceda is just read this excerpt from his biography and it will answer any questions you have. Believe me before you finish you will know that he is honest and wants to help you. This will definitely help you make an informative decision as to whether or not to join him in business like Big Value Depot.
Joel Sauceda’s exact words from his biography. “I have always believed in “giving back” to the community in which I do business. Someone gave me a chance when I was in need and I believe in doing the same for others. San Antonio is a community that has enabled this C MINUS student to build businesses and thrive despite the odds being stacked against me. I am greatly appreciative to the many mentors and people within this city who have given me a “step up” and NOT a “hand out”

It is NOT About Me!

My goals are not only about personal success but watching others grow despite their life challenges. It is for this reason that I have chosen to endorse local charities so I can be actively involved and have more of a “hands on” approach to helping people. I like to SEE who my gifts are impacting..that motivates me to do more!

The big question that any person who wants to “give back” should ask is this..”How Do I Give And Stretch That GIFT So It Impacts MORE than one person and more important, MORE generations to come?”

Invest In Children…

Kids parents are NOT all created equal and unfortunately there are many children who do not have the benefit of good advice or even positive re-inforcement. These are the children that my heart bleeds for. These kids deserve a better chance because after all, it is NOT their fault for where they were born or WHO gave birth to them.

My goal is to impact children who did not have the start in life that they COULD of had and to let them know that they have it in them to do better. God created them and therefore they are special and ALL have unique gifts (It is just a matter of helping them find out WHAT those gifts are!).

I Joel Sauceda am proud to endorse a community center based in San Antonio and named after a HERO who I admire. That HERO to children is none other than SONNY MELENDREZ. Sonny has given of his time over the years and spoken at over 1100 schools to THOUSANDS of kids, sharing the message of HOPE with them. It was not long ago that a community center which at that time was CINDER BLOCKS and NO air conditioning (in a VERY hot city) was named after Sonny and many of San Antonio’s …

The Faith that is of God and not man

The Faith that is of God and not man

Written by Joseph Ho, December 5th 2014

Our emotions and desires are often mistaken for faith and it is so easy to blame God when there are no results from something that has been purely of the mind and not of the heart. This was a sentence from a long forgotten book by Kathryn Kuhlman that truly struck a significant cord in my heart when I searched for the true reason why many Christians do not get their healing. They thought by doing those things which the church has preached that they will receive the desires of their hearts. Faith by reading the bible, by hearing the Gospel, by human works will not develop true overcoming faith. Faith comes by asking God for the power to believe in him. That is the kind of faith that Jesus preached unmanufactured by human efforts. Faith is given by God to those whom he receives as a son or daughter. Faith is given by the grace of God. That is why it is called Amazing Grace.

Faith will enter your heart when you open it to God. Faith comes by hearing the truth which Jesus preaches; it is not the same kind of faith which the church today teaches. The divinity and the power of the Word of God is Spirit. It is life unto all that receive the gift of faith. You cannot cultivate faith, and many instances people have mistaken their own ability to believe for the faith which only God can give. Faith is not a condition of the mind. It is a divinely imparted Grace to the heart. For our righteousness is as filthy rags to God. In truth, when one does not experience the power of God or an answer to any prayers, they tend not to believe. So why did God make it so difficult to see this hidden truth? He wants us to Ask, Seek and Knock before he opens the door to the keys of knowledge and wisdom.

Isaiah 6:10New International Version (NIV)

10 Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull
    and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”

Romans 10:10King James Version (KJV)

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

So how is it possible to believe in God not by sight but by faith? By sight, I mean to believe in a God we can experience. Too much theoretical truth does not produce faith that can overcome the world’s most serious problems like: diseases that kill, sickness that causes years of sufferings, broken relationship that torments the hearts of many people, and the financial bankruptcy of broken dreams and lost business endeavours.

The type of faith that can overcome such disaster can only be real faith given and imparted by a supernatural father …

Christian Weight Loss Support and Encouragement for Overweight Women

Deciding to Change, The First Victory Step to Success

You were created for a special reason. As a Christian woman of God, your wonderfully made body and your daily deeds stand as ambassador for Jesus Christ here on the Earth. This should motivate and encourage you to lose weight because you represent Jesus as a believer, and it’s important to set a good example to the world by living a healthy lifestyle and being at a healthy weight. It is God’s will for you to be in good health so you can live an abundant life through Jesus Christ our Savior. God still loves you unconditionally, even when you’re overweight, but we need to do everything that we can to show respect and honor for the body that He has given us. One of the ways that we can show respect is to eat healthy foods and exercise on a regular basis because if we don’t, chances are we can get very sick with:

hospital roomStroke

Heart disease

Heart attack

Back Pain

Depression

Diabetes

High blood pressure

High cholesterol

Sleep apnea

Gout

Cancer

PLUS

Low self-esteem

Depression

Worry

Stress

Anxiety

Low to no sex drive

Irritability… 

…plus more problems and illnesses that are too numerous to name here.

Now how can we be a very effective witness for God our Father, if we are busy wrestling with these diseases and emotional issues that make us look and feel totally defeated by the Devil? God wants us to be totally free from sickness and disease, and one of the best ways to improve our health is to put our food vices aside and take what I call “Victory Steps” toward making healthy living our personal style of living. 

In order to make healthy living our personal style of living, we must first make a real decision to change. We have to make up in our minds that we are completely done with…

Beating up on ourselves all the time

Being tired and depressed about our weight and our lives

Joining health clubs and never going and wasting our money

Buying diet pills for fast results knowing deep inside they won’t work

Trying weight loss detox diets hoping to get a “jumpstart”

Buying exercise gizmos seen on TV… that don’t work

Considering weight loss surgery even though you’re scared of being put to sleep

Thinking about throwing the food back up after binge eating

Comparing our bodies to other women like model, actresses seen in magazines

Setting a poor example for the kids, because they watch everything we do

Thinking we’re meant to be fat because “it runs in the family”

Dreading getting on the scale because we know it’s going to be bad

Losing weight and gaining it back because the yo-yo dieting is unhealthy

… I should go on and on, but I think you get the point. Once you truly DECIDE that you’re completely DONE with the negative impact that excess body weight and emotional weight is having …

Berthe Morisot

Education

Berthe Morisot, The Cradle, 1872, Muse d’Orsay

Morisot was born in Bourges, Cher, France into a successful bourgeois family. Both she and her sister, Edma Morisot, chose to become painters. Once Berthe Morisot settled on pursuing art, her family did not impede her career.

She was born into a family that, according to family tradition, had included one of the most prolific Rococo painters of the ancien rgime, Fragonard, whose handling of color and expressive, confident brushwork influenced later painters. By age twenty, she had met and befriended the important, and pivotal, landscape painter of the Barbizon School, Camille Corot, who excelled in figure painting as well.

The older artist instructed Berthe and her sister in painting and introduced them to other artists and teachers. Under Corot’s influence, Morisot took up the plein air method of working. As art students, Berthe and Edma worked closely together until Edma married, had children, and no longer had time to paint so intensely as Berthe. Letters between them show a loving and cordial relationship, underscored by Berthe’s regret at the distance between them and about Edma’s withdrawal from painting. Edma wholeheartedly supported Berthe’s continued work and the families of the two sisters always remained close.

Manet and impressionism

Berthe Morisot, Grain field, Muse d’Orsay

Morisot’s first appearance in the Salon de Paris came at the age of twenty-three in 1864, with the acceptance of two landscape paintings. She continued to show regularly in the Salon, to generally favorable reviews, until 1873, the year before the first Impressionist exhibition.

Berthe Morisot, L’Enfant au Tablier Rouge, a sketch

Meanwhile, in 1868 Morisot became acquainted with douard Manet. He took a special interest in Morisot, as is evident from his warm portrayal of her in several paintings, including a striking portrait study of Morisot in a black veil, while in mourning for her father’s death (displayed at the top of the article). Correspondence between them bespeaks affection. He once gave her an easel as a Christmas present. He also interfered in one of her Salon submissions when he was engaged to transport it. Manet mistook one of Morisot’s self-criticisms as an invitation to add his corrections, which he did, much to Morisot’s dismay.

Although traditionally Manet has been related as the master and Morisot as the follower, there is evidence that their relationship was a reciprocating one. Morisot had developed her own distinctive artistic style. Records of paintings show Manet’s approval and appreciation of certain stylistic and compositional decisions that Morisot originated. He incorporated some of these characteristics into his own work.

Berthe Morisot, Child among Staked Roses, 1881, Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne

It was Morisot who convinced Manet to attempt plein air painting, which she had been practicing since having been introduced to it by Corot.
She also drew Manet into the circle of painters who soon became known as the Impressionists. In 1874, Morisot married Manet’s brother, Eugene, and they had one daughter, Julie. Julie Manet became the subject for many of her mother’s …

How Being Nice Can Destroy Your Success in Business

In many cultures building a strong relationship is a requirement for doing business. This is a natural motivational driver for some where helping people is a priority.

“Bless him! Jack is so nice! He’s such a lovely person…” was how people described Jack, a coaching client. Jack was always concerned with maintaining harmony and getting along with people, even if it involved contorting himself to fit in.

Jack was overly nice. He valued people and their feelings more than achieving goals and tasks. He strived to keep people happy and create harmony. This had limited his success in business.

I have to confirm that a friendly approach creates connectivity and builds empathy. It works extremely well if you want to increase morale, improve communication or offer emotional support to someone with personal challenges.

Unfortunately, Jack was a people-pleaser and relied solely on this approach to lead. He was too concerned with keeping things harmonious. His philosophy was:

If people like me, then they’ll want to work with me.

He was always worried about getting along with people. Looking after others was his priority and he would always move towards people that he perceived needed help.

Being helpful, supportive and focusing on positive relationships is strength. If this strength is over-played though, it can have a negative effect on relationships leading to poor performance and mediocre results.

Being overly nice contorted Jack’s lens for doing business effectively: He would lower the price to prospective clients and was always giving his time or services away for free. He was seen as “a soft touch.” He would not give feedback to his staff in fear of upsetting them. He would spend time worrying about whether people liked him or not. Work took second place to his feelings.

Being “nice” takes a lot of energy.

Here is how to recognize when being nice is too much:

1. You’re too concerned about keeping harmony: You shy away from confrontation or difficult conversations. You’re always stepping in to keep things sweet and cool. Looking after others is your sole priority.

2. You avoid giving feedback: You neglect to give honest and open feedback to your clients and staff. They can’t improve because you keep the information to yourself. You focus on giving praise and rarely offer advice on how to improve. Others may feel that mediocrity is tolerated.

3. You worry what people think of you: You are more concerned about getting along with people, sometimes to the detriment of the task in hand! Task accomplishment becomes a potential blindside. You worry about what people might/might not be thinking about you. This becomes your priority and distorts your thinking. You constantly replay in your mind whether they like you or not,maybe you upset them when you said something.

4. You’re too friendly in a crisis: Instead of taking the lead and providing clarity and direction, you are too focused on keeping everyone happy and maintaining the welfare of others. You play down the situation and people …

Cheap Calls to India- Cutting the Cost of Your Phone Bills

Being away from home and family is difficult in itself and not being able to communicate to them when you desire because of high call rates just makes matters worse. With the world shrinking and travelling abroad is more frequent than ever before, it is very important to be able to keep in touch with people close to you. A lot of young people are now going to countries far away for education and employment and this becomes a cause of worry to parents back home. But it is also equally true that with the high cost of living abroad, not many such students will be able to call back home as often as they would like to. The familial ties being stronger in India, calls to India are bound to be more in number.

In countries like the UK and the US, international call plans are very high and this becomes a huge strain on the limited budget of students and young professionals. Although many network providers of mobile phones do provide special discounted tariff for international calling, they are usually during odd hours. The global time difference makes it inconvenient for callers. There were days when NRIs would decide on a day and time to call India and the people back home would wake up at unearthly hours to attend the call. But with communication becoming so advanced and easily accessible to all, calling India is no longer very difficult. All one needs is access to a computer which can connect to the Internet and an account in a website which provides VoIP calls to India.

VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol is a technology where voice data is digitally transferred over the Internet to other PCs, mobile phones or a fixed line. This technology is also known by the name Internet Telephony. This facility has been offered by numerous websites. The number of subscribers to this facility are growing at an increasing rate. Most of them use this facility to call India at very reasonable rates. The telecommunication boom in India is also a factor in increasing users of Internet Telephony. The service providers of VoIP calls to India have many calling plans to suit the users. They charge very reasonable rates on calls to India. The calling plans to India are so reasonable that they work out to cost only as much as or may be even lesser than local call rates. The cheap call rates have come as a blessing to subscribers with limited income. These cheap calls to India have kept the sons and daughters connected to their families, land and culture.

Cheap calls to India are not the only bright side to VoIP calls. They are secure lines of communication to hold confidential discussions. The service providers are governed by policies of the state and so it is perfectly legal to use this service. This method is also being used by smaller entrepreneurs who have their businesses across continents. Such businessmen and also …

Sun Into Taurus 2012: Love And Money

    When the Sun moves into sturdy, dependable Taurus at 9:12 A.M. PST on April 19th, it initiates a cycle abundant in earth sign resources, and one that includes a full Scorpio moon and the beginning of a Venus retrograde in thinking, communicative Gemini.  This cycle is also preparing us for a set of powerful eclipses on May 20th and June 4th, the Venus occultation of June 5-6th and the Uranus Pluto square of June 24th.  As more systemic change approaches planet Earth, the patient, powerful Bull arrives to share its enduring wisdom.  Its ruler Venus is traveling close by and urging us to make love our guiding principle, a choice that will make all the difference.

    Astrology’s earth signs are associated with nature, finances, health and the physical realms of reality, and Taurus is renowned for its capacity for construction.  Whether a personal chart is heavily aspected by planets in earth signs or not, the cycle ahead is loaded with ample opportunity to turn thoughts into things.  First and foremost, the new Taurus moon of April 21st. with Its trines to Mars and Pluto in fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn, sextiles with Neptune and Chiron in Pisces and conjunction with expansive Jupiter, now also in Taurus, offers a sound and inspiring foundation for building.  The Sun follows suit and bolsters our enterprises with a Neptune sextile on the 22nd, Mars and Pluto trines on the 23rd and 29th and a Jupiter conjunction on May 13th.  Those harmonious angles to indelible Neptune and healing Chiron in holistic (water sign) Pisces are important. Taurus’s easy going style agrees with Piscean gentleness, and this combination helps us access our creativity and intuition.  On May 8th, our minds also acquiesce to the Bull’s calm assurance when Mercury enters centered Taurus.  From there it sextiles Neptune on the 10th and trines Mars the 13th and Pluto on the 14th.  On May 16th Mars and Pluto trine, and on May 18th the Moon returns to Taurus.  The earth sign stamina, solidity and stability available throughout this cycle provide especially fertile ground for seeding our immediate and long-range goals.  They can also instill a sense of security that will prove useful as 2012’s larger events (the 99% Spring, earthquakes and changes at the Fed?) unfold.     

     To counteract an unhealthy emphasis on the material side of life, every Taurus cycle includes a full Scorpio moon.  Destructive and transformation, Scorpio demands honesty and necessary change.  This year the annual battle between the tangible and impermanent takes place on May 5th, the same day Mercury, still in independent Aries at the time, will oppose unyielding Saturn in arbitrating Libra.  Our Taurus quest for sensual pleasure and gratification is accountable to no less than the truth, and individual desire must be reconciled with communal concerns.  Part of a larger global trend, these aspects remind us that the exploitation of resources via our economic and environmental practices must be brought into line with our values and balanced with our impact on …

The Balance Between Life and Work

Balance between professional life and personal life is of paramount importance and significance. These days it is a highly improbable (although still possible) task to achieve this balance between work and life. Technology has played the main role in disturbing the equilibrium. It is technology that has made it working in a 24 by 7 environment within the bounds of possibility. The progress in the technological sphere has ensued in work frenzy as all the employees are within easy reach round the clock. Another reason behind this increased frequency of work around the globe is unemployment. Factors such as recession and economic slump have resulted in a dearth of job opportunities. Secured jobs have reduced drastically in number as these days no one is guaranteed job security, especially in the jobs pertaining to the private sector. In such a situation, employees are compelled to adhere to the company policies irrespective of the fact whether these policies are in their favour or not. Employers have grown wiser over the years and have learnt to manipulate this situation using it to their favour. They compel their employees to work for hours and hours in order to generate the maximum amount of profit.

Nevertheless, whatever the reasons behind this disturbed balance between work and life these days, it is only fair to assert the truth of the matter. Work and life balance is a topic that is subjective in its essence and its perception varies from individual to individual. Some might consider working for hours without paying much heed to the life outside office a routinely matter. However, that doesn’t imply that people can sustain happiness in life without attaining the all important balance between work and life. We all comprehend the fact that working is must for survival, but if we devote all our time towards working it will defeat the very purpose of it. We work so that we can provide for our families, fulfill our desires and secure out future. If we don’t enjoy on the cost of our earnings, what fun will remain in our lives. The entirety of our life will be spent in earning money and we won’t even have the time to spend it and enjoy. The time we spend outside the office premises must be dedicated towards our personal life and activities pertaining to it. Work must be confined to a defined period of time during the day and the rest we must insulate ourselves from work related stress to live a healthy and happy life.…
