Hi! I'm a husband, father of two beautiful adopted baby girls and a 10-Year-Cubical-Reject. After a 15 year battle with alcohol, my life came crashing down and out of the ashes, Intention Inspired was born with my brother Matt. This is my re-awakening journey to sobriety and living an intention inspired lifestyle. I am hoping to help you do the same. Loving the Journey- Ebin

My son. In his early 20’s now, he is creating a wonderful life for himself. I want him to be proud of me; I don’t want to feel left behind. So I work harder for his sake than I would for just myself.

I have been changing my health in positive ways by focusing on going to the gym and eating more fruits and vegetables. I also journal everything and am going to start journaling about my feelings everyday. I know that I can work through the depression I have been feeling. So far I have lost 47lbs. and gone down from a size 24 to an 18. I haven’t been an 18 in over 15 years and I feel so much better. I think if we keep our goals small the big one will be accomplished. I take it 10lbs. at a time and I am so proud of myself when I get at the next one.

My North Star…is constantly growing as a person. Becoming kinder, more intentional, more patient, more honest. Speaking up when necessary and then knowing when to just listen. It’s leaning to share myself with the world and being open with it.

A North Star believes in you, encourages you, makes you feel good about yourself, and can change your life. A trainer at my new job was my North Star. His patience and compassion guided me through a tremendous obstacle. For his presence in that moment of my life, I will be forever grateful.

It’s you guys. Really it is. From Ebin and Matt for their inspiration to serve us up what’s next. To the brand new people I see post every day, to the people who are already family from the love and support I see to myself and to others that are putting themselves out there, from the courage I’ve gotten to actually allow myself to start to open up, to the personal connections in my own real life that I have seen join recently. This group is changing my life, legit. So grateful and so inspired… it’s pretty much to the point that I no longer have words for it <3

A friend who offered to help me with sobriety is a guide to me in the recovery process.

My faith in God has increased exponentially when 5 years ago I had to make a huge change in my life. My mother was gravely ill and could not be by herself anymore. She has no money for live in help or move to nursing home. I lived out of state. Once I made the decision to take care of her, God directed everything. I had to quit my job (losing income and health insurance) sell my car, find tenants to rent my home, re-home my beloved pets, pack and store everything I owned except what I could take with me in a rental car, leave dear friends and my 2 granddaughters who lived next door. It was heartbreaking but everything fell in to place more easily than I could imagine because of God’s help. My mom did not want to leave her home where she had lived almost 60 years. I knew I did the right thing and God has been there right with me. I have little money to speak of but have always had what I needed. My mom had a reliable car which she sold to me for $10.00! I have made good friends here and… Read more »

Philippians 3:13-14 summarized states: This one thing I do, my one aspiration, is forgetting what lies behind and pressing on to the good things. * Looking to the future with positivism in my heart has become my goal. I have this verse posted on my wall to remind me that I will wreck my life if I drive it looking in the rearview mirror. There’s a reason the windshield is bigger than the rearview mirror. What lies ahead is far greater than what is in my tainted past.
