How I make that money, honey!

How I make that money....

When I started college back in 1999, I thought that I would be a pre school teacher when I "grew up." But after 2 quarters of college and working at a day care for 1 year...I decided that wasnt the best plan for me. I HATED school, and I wasnt sure that I wanted to take care of other peoples kids ALL day long.

So I decided that I would go to Beauty school! It was there that I found my passion: Making people feel beautiful, and helping them see their God given beauty. I have been doing hair on and off for over 10 years and I LOVE it.

Recently God has allowed some BIG changes in my life....while I still do hair sometimes...my fulltime job for the past 7 years has been in Radio, I was a radio sales rep and then a promotions coordinator for a group of 9 radio stations. It was an awesome job and I learned SO much about marketing and copy writing. But then God told my husband and I that I needed to be somewhere to better serve Him...So I quit my job. Without. having. another. job. This was one of the SCARIEST things I have EVER done. But, God promised me that He would be faithful.

The day after I gave my two weeks notice, I was offered a job at Life Choices Clinic.
I had just started volunteering there, and they had a position opening up called the "Development Assistant" the details included: Marketing, donor management, social media content creation and management and some other duties. But, OH MY WORD this was everything that I had been doing for the past 7 years! God had been preparing me this whole time for THIS JOB! Life Choices Clinic is a Non Profit Christian ministry that offers free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, life skills classes, and counseling to Women in a unplanned pregnancy situation. We provide hope, and choices for them in a very difficult situation. We are pro-life, and we speak love into their lives. We are the compassionate face of the pro-life movement, no hype, no politics. Just love, and support. I LOVE my job...its the best job I have ever had. EVER.

So thats my job...I am the development assistant for Life Choices Clinic! Our website is here, www.lifechoicesclinic.info  if you want to learn more about what we do!

I also sell Scentsy ( I love that too!) Here is my website!  https://heatherlawless.scentsy.us/Scentsy/Home


  1. I made it through 4 and a half years of college ~ all I had was 1 semester left and a semester of student teaching ~ when I decided that teaching wasn't for me. I took a semester off to re-group....and 13 years later, I'm still re-grouping! It bothers me to think that I was soooooo close to being done, and that if I had finished, I would be in my 12th year of teaching......but it just wasn't for me!

  2. Just hopped over from The Bargain Blonde. What an amazing story! God certainly had a plan for you! I think what you do is so amazing and must be extremely rewarding. Not too many people actually get to say they are making significant differences in the lives of individuals on a daily basis. Loved reading this :)

  3. This is AWESOME!!! I just foud your blog and I love your story! You are so brave to quit your job without having a new one! Ive wanted to do that SOOOO bad but dont have the guts! Good for you lady!!
