DRINK COFFEE. LOSE WEIGHT.

When I posted this on Facebook…
Hello! My name is Jackie Harmon and I am a hot mess.  My thyroid hates me, my hormones have a mind of their own, my brain forgets to tell me to breathe when I am asleep, I’m severely anemic which keeps me feeling exhausted, my legs are restless, I have horrible insomnia, and I have to take medicine for PTSD, anxiety and depression to help me parent my Autistic Ninja.
…I had just finished a cup of coffee.  But not just any coffee, this new magic coffee that my friend introduced me to.  The company that sells the coffee claims that their coffee is smart.  That it can increase my energy, suppress my appetite, curb my sugar cravings, increase my metabolism, help my brain feel calm, and so on and so on.

Drink coffee. Increase Energy. Lose weight.

That sounds too good to be true, right?!  But...What if it works?  What if their claims are true?  What did I have to lose?  Well, since they offer a 30-day money back guarantee, I had absolutely nothing to lose, so I ordered a tub.

After just one day, I knew this was something special.



I couldn't believe the energy the coffee gave this anemic insomniac.  I had a complete hysterectomy in February to try and solve my low iron issues but instead of helping, it left me wide awake until 2-3 every morning, which took my exhaustion to a whole new level.

My Facebook post went on to say...
I have to stick close to Jesus to survive each and every day. I know that He has a specific purpose for my life and yet my body seems determined to work against Him.  But God...  Sometimes He gives me a verse to speak life into my soul, sometimes He brings along a friend to encourage me, and sometimes He sends an unexpected gift in the form of coffee.
I loved the coffee so much and I decided to step out of my comfort zone and let people know about it.  This was super scary because, well, people trust us.  They trust us with their hearts and lives and we never want to do anything to mess that up.  We are Jesus people -not sales people, not coffee people, not money chasing people- Jesus people.  Our calling is to serve people and help them live out their unique purpose.  And since this product seemed to be helping us have the energy and clear mind to do that more effectively, I felt like everyone should have the opportunity to see if it works for them too.

In 2 months, Keith and I have lost 43 pounds and have had so much fun reconnecting with people from different seasons of our lives and ministry.  It has been a sweet reminder of how truly blessed we are to have so many people in our lives.  But the greatest part, so far, is having the opportunity to grace people right where they are.  I have received so many texts, emails, and messages from people whose bodies just aren't functioning right.  No matter what the reason, the shame and guilt that come along with that feels really bad and lonely. So having friends, family members, and acquaintances take that brave first step and confess that they need help, well, it is just amazing.

The company launched September 16th of this year with one product... coffee.
And they made it easy for people like me who don't want to sell anything... samples.

I give out samples.
People buy coffee.
The company sends me money.

Seriously, how is this real life?

If you are interested in trying the coffee, message me your address and I'll send you a sample.  If you are interested in buying some coffee, you can do so here.  If you are interested in locking arms with me and making some extra money with company that is less than 3 months old and already doing millions a month in revenue (that is unheard of), message me today.  There is something exciting about being on the ground floor of something that is about to explode and I would love for you guys to come along for the ride.

FORTY-THREE


Happy Birthday to the greatest human I know.
You love, serve, and give all of you all the time.

I love hearing about your day because it’s never about what you accomplished.  When you recount your steps, it always includes the people you encountered, helped out, and made laugh. 

You may be praying with the Mayor one minute and stuffing envelopes with the support staff the next.  You may be picking up a guest speaker one day and driving a bus for the student ministry the next.  You may be standing on stage one day and behind the scenes setting up tables the next.

You take time to speak and to listen.
You take time to care and to love.
You take time to be part of the solution, no matter what the problem.

You do you better than anyone I know and everyone around you is better for it.

Today, on your birthday, we celebrate not just the day you were born, but the life that you live and the difference that you make.  I am so proud of the person you are and honored to call you mine.


Happy Birthday!!!
