Our "WHY"

So, I know without a shadow of a doubt that God led us to AdvoCare's products & income opportunity that they provide to any American as a home-based business-it is not available Internationally yet but hey maybe someday WE will be the ones God uses to help take it there! Our whole family has used the products everyday for almost the past 3 years & had many amazing personal results from them in the areas of overall daily health, weight-loss, & even sports performance. I have set goals & worked the business side of AdvoCare off & on for the past two years. However, I have always wrestled with our Big Picture "why" which has really held me back & hindered me from truly walking very far down this path that I know God led us to.  I finally got down to the nitty gritty with the Lord this past week with a lot of praying, digging into His word & asking Him to open my eyes, heart & mind to what our "why" is on the journey He's given us in AdvoCare.  Yeah, I am apparently a little slow because don't you know that He is so good & faithful and answered my "why" once I finally decided to seek & ask Him! So, here it is: to be abundantly GENEROUS! We have been so blessed by others' generosity & blessings to us over the years & I want to be able to give back as much as possible.  I believe He gave us a spirit of generosity & we LOVE to give of our time, talents, & resources already. But we want to be able to do it more & in as much abundance as He will provide for us to give to our children, our family, friends, and everyone that He puts in our path throughout our lives. I have really always been a pretty small & limited thinker~at least with coming up with my own original ideas & visions. But over the past few days, I feel like God has opened the floodgates to giving me a vision so BIG and it is simply blowing my mind. I usually struggle or simply avoid as much as possible making decisions when given an open "canvas" of opportunities & choices.  But I am so excited because the Lord is giving me such clear direction & ideas that I know are straight from Him.  I am thankful to be on this journey with my awesome husband, Scott Rainsberry, and amazing friends & mentors~ Jeremy & Tiffanee Cummings, Sandy & Deanne  Stephens & the Team of friends apart of this journey with us already~Jake & Diana Henning, Chuck & Heather Lee,  Jonni R. Dron, April Muller, Aaron & Kelli Couch, Dave & Hester Christensen . And a very big Thank You to my good friend Sara Barnes for sharing "Spark" with us! We are forever grateful! <3

Welcome to our AdvoCare Team Blog!

Hello! My name is Nicole & my husband's name is Scott and we are excited to start this blog to pass along useful & encouraging info surrounding how AdvoCare's products & financial opportunities can transform your, your loved ones', neighbors', and even complete strangers' lives. If you have never heard of AdvoCare before then you are in for a blessing! Our Nation as a whole is in a health & financial crisis and AdvoCare is a company that has real & powerful solutions to offer for both of these issues.  
A little bit of background: the first time someone shared AdvoCare with me was in the Spring of 2008 at our church's Women's Retreat.  Unfortunately, I simply did not have "ears to hear" the help she was trying to share with me that AdvoCare had to offer.  I truly wish I would have.  Thankfully, about a year later, a neighbor, who had become a great friend of mine, also shared AdvoCare with us.  I think one of the greatest aspects of AdvoCare is that it meets people's needs in such a large variety of ways.  The biggest concern we were dealing with at that time was searching for alternatives to meds for our oldest son's struggles with focus & hyperactivity issues.  She suggested we try AdvoCare's "Spark" drink with him.  We decided to "test" it without telling his 4th grade teacher to see if she noticed a difference in him after a month or so of use. We saw a difference in him at home pretty much immediately.  And to our great surprise, at the end of the first week, his teacher approached us and said she had seen a huge improvement in his behavior and ability to focus at school & wanted to know what in the world we were doing differently.  Wow, a solution with not only no horrible possible side effects or health risks but it was actually good for him!  It was truly the miracle we had been praying for. (If you are interested, you can read the results of a study done at TTU comparing Spark vs. Methylphenidates on our microsite under "Customer Communication").  At that same time, Scott & I decided we were going to try to replace our coffee & soda habits with Spark too.  It is literally like "window cleaner" for your brain! LOL! We love it, feel the best we have in years & have never gone back! Advocare has been a huge part of our lives ever since.  Now, we utilize numerous products in their Trim, Active, Well, & Sports Performance Lines.  I have lost nearly 20 pounds and countless inches and gained muscle, incredible energy & confidence. As a result of feeling so great & having so much energy, I have started running & strength training 5 to 6 days a week.  One of my great friends, Diana Henning, who is on our Team, is a fitness instructor & marathon runner & has been such an inspiration to me!  I am now even training for a half-marathon myself. Now that's just craziness! :0) We strongly believe that God led us to AdvoCare and what started out as a huge answer to our prayers in just one area has turned into God blessing us in more ways than we could have ever imagined!
Ephesians 3:19-21 (The Message)

 14-19My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you'll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
 20-21God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.   Glory to God! Oh, yes! 

It is such a blessing to be able to share products that are safe & actually work with others so they can get healthy, get great results & feel their best too!  Another huge blessing is that we get to offer the same income opportunity with AdvoCare to others that we decided to take advantage of ourselves.
