The Extraordinary Zone — Interview with The Vintage Girls

Quality time and Cute Kitsch during Quarantine with the Vintage Girls

What start­ed out as an idea for a typ­i­cal garage sale trans­formed into any­thing but typ­i­cal as 5 girls, who are also stu­dents and baris­tas at an amaz­ing cof­fee shop in Hol­lis­ter, MO, “acci­den­tal­ly” on pur­pose dis­cov­ered their entre­pre­neur­ial edge. These ladies orga­nized and set up #Sip­N­Shop­Co, a unique busi­ness idea that pro­motes com­mu­ni­ty and sup­ports a local com­mu­ni­ty cen­tered busi­ness.

The #vin­tage­girls began vir­tu­al­ly to adjust to the city shut­down with adorable wrapped care pack­ages, deliv­ered with sweet notes and coupons for Vin­tage Paris to bring encour­age­ment dur­ing the unex­pect­ed times to the weary. You can find them and their amaz­ing line of cloth­ing and items on Insta­gram or in per­son dur­ing one of their sched­uled pop up events at #Vin­tageParis.

WHAT ARE WE MISSING?! Encouragement for Caregivers, Guardians, and Parents of Children

WHAT ARE WE MISSING?!”

Sit back and relax to the pleas­ant sounds of chil­dren, pups and bounc­ing balls as I bat­tle through the strug­gle of chil­dren physics which, btw, seems to defy reg­u­lar physics. Why?! Arg!!! It feels like we can spend hours, days and years putting care­ful­ly placed, pro­tec­tive spir­i­tu­al armor and tech­no­log­i­cal­ly sound, equip­ping mate­ri­als on their lit­tle bod­ies then they go to the play­ground and in like 5 sec­onds the armor just dis­in­te­grates like a para­chute filled with pots and pans instead of the para­chute you pur­chased. And that YouTube video you didn’t play that pops up out of nowhere teach­ing them the wrong thing that seems to be burned in their mem­o­ry after see­ing it just for *a sec­ond* as you face dive for the remote to change it. At this point they are sit­ting ducks wait­ing to be picked off ready to bring all those new­ly learned bad habits home to their younger sib­lings who then stage a mutiny!

They know we are out num­bered!

Why?! What am I miss­ing?!!! Maybe we can fig­ure this out togeth­er…

The Extraordinary Zone — Interview with Joe Defina

The Extraordinary Zone Joe Defina

Mir­a­cles still hap­pen every moment! Yes, you heard me right. I heard some­one say, “If you want to see a mir­a­cle, look in the mir­ror.” Take a moment to let that sink in…we will wait…

Often times they can go unno­ticed if we aren’t care­ful. Join us as we inter­view this extra­or­di­nary gen­tle­man. His amaz­ing sto­ry of heal­ing through faith, humil­i­ty and neigh­bor­ly love is absolute­ly amaz­ing and filled with the mirac­u­lous. We aren’t meant to be iso­lat­ed and when we join togeth­er in love to pro­mote heal­ing, the super­nat­ur­al always hap­pens and empow­er­ment flows out abun­dant­ly to any­one will­ing to receive. Get ready to be empow­ered and inspired to step into your very own Extra­or­di­nary Zone as we trav­el with Joe Defi­na through his life’s jour­ney full of hurts, recov­ery and ulti­mate­ly a call­ing to speak and encour­age.

We were always meant to be in com­mu­ni­ty with each oth­er. Tech­nol­o­gy and cur­rent cli­mate tends to find us more sep­a­rat­ed from each oth­er. We don’t want to bur­den each oth­er or we are afraid of some­one out­side our vul­ner­a­ble zone see­ing “our mess”. It makes for silos and strug­gles.

What would hap­pen if we invit­ed some­one to sup­port us in an area they are strong in, rather than engag­ing some­one who may lack the expe­ri­ence? What if you told a suc­cess­ful musi­cian you aspired to be a musi­cian rather than dis­cussing it with one who is genius at com­put­er pro­gram­ming?

Opting Out Recap — Czettys On the Road

Hey, what are you up to?
Are you crazy?

Yes, we are crazy…

The world will think you are crazy any­time you “Opt Out” of what is con­sid­ered the norm. It’s out­side of the com­fort zone and will gen­er­ate resis­tance. Think of any time some­one set out to change things. Think about all the his­to­ry around all men and women being treat­ed equal­ly.

You did what??? How are you guys able to do that???? These are just some of the ques­tions we have heard as we embarked on our mobile adven­tures 5 months ago. In this pod­cast I go back to where it all began, the con­densed ver­sion, and catch up to today. Get a clos­er look into our crazy. Also look for an inter­view with me by a fel­low pod­cast­er and adven­tur­er some­time lat­er this month.

Adven­ture Awaits…

Who doesn’t love the idea of an adven­ture? Don’t wor­ry, the thought is sup­posed cre­ate a lit­tle trep­i­da­tion. It is part of the process. Most amaz­ing things will stretch us and stretch­ing beyond our lim­its comes with pain. But the pain means we are get­ting stronger and soon it sub­sides, just as when we build mus­cles.

What thing is call­ing you? What is your cur­rent, “X marks  the spot”? We all have buried trea­sure, it just takes some dig­ging and cre­ativ­i­ty to find it. What thing comes to your mind that the idea of you doing it caus­es your heart to skip a beat? Both our of hes­i­ta­tion and excite­ment? If you don’t know, don’t wor­ry, the tim­ing for the extra­or­di­nary is always per­fect, because our cre­ator has per­fect tim­ing.

Your Extraordinary Path — Part 2

So we have heard and/or seen that we are Extra­or­di­nary with our ears, (if you haven’t, see Part I).

But do we believe it?

Has your per­son­al view of your val­ue increased yet?

Some­times to real­ly expe­ri­ence some­thing and to believe it, it takes a 360 degree view  through all the avail­able sens­es where amaz­ing­ly, some sens­es can be more height­ened than oth­ers, (anoth­er appear­ance of the extra­or­di­nary in us). In this we talk about some of the oth­er sens­es, along with our hearts, minds, strength and soul. I encour­age you lis­ten with your sens­es height­ened and ready…

Some­thing amaz­ing is about to hap­pen…

Bonus Ques­tion for after the Pod­cast: How does your fruit taste? Bit­ter, Sweet or Rot­ten? More on this lat­er…

Extraordinary Zone — Interview With Denny Katona

Some­times tran­si­tion can be dif­fi­cult. Often times when we ded­i­cate our­selves ful­ly for a while, we can lose sight of our iden­ti­ty. Maybe we nev­er real­ly knew it in the first place. For many vet­er­ans, it can be a strug­gle find­ing their pur­pose as they build their lives after hav­ing faith­ful­ly and brave­ly served our coun­try. Some­times there can be a gap, one that many of our sol­diers fall into and can’t find a way out.

Den­ny Katona, our guest on The Extra­or­di­nary Zone, talks about how he found him­self in the deep­est dark­est part of that gap. He tells us how he climbed out of the gap and how he stays out of it going for­ward. This amaz­ing vet­er­an built a non-prof­it, OP Vet­er­an, to serve the vet­er­an com­mu­ni­ty and con­nect with oth­er orga­ni­za­tions. Their goal is to one day cre­ate a hub so that no vet­er­an is ever left in that gap alone. They strive to give vet­er­ans mul­ti­ple hands to grab onto to pull them­selves out.

Don’t use a per­ma­nent solu­tion for a tem­po­rary prob­lem”

What Road are You On?

What Road Are You On …. To Pas­ture? …Or is it to Slaugh­ter?

Imag­ine for a moment you could zoom out from your lim­it­ed first per­son view and get an omnipresent point of view, like one you would in Google Maps. From this per­spec­tive you can see where you are now and the des­ti­na­tion. If you were able to see sev­er­al miles ahead what would be the des­ti­na­tion?

Would it lead to pas­ture or to slaugh­ter? Often times we don’t always ful­ly real­ize if the path we are on will lead us to where we are want­i­ng to go. Ulti­mate­ly no one wants to go to the slaugh­ter, but nei­ther do the sheep. How can we know if we are on the right path or if we are on the”… way which seemeth right unto a man…” (Proverbs 14:12)
