Hi, I'm Vivian Stevens-Lyons.


I believe we all have defining moments in life. Defining moments in our lives are the things that happen to us that also happen in us...meaning there's a shift on the inside of us. I speak about a couple of those moments in my own life to encourage you in yours. Be sure to grab my book, First Class Life® Devotional and be inspired to make the most of life's defining moments. There can be purpose from pain.

Having a personal relationship with God is paramount. A personal connection with Him increases our faith and eliminates our fears. We have faith in our parents, our jobs, our cars, etc. Why not have faith in God too? When I was left to feel abandoned and alone after my parents left me, it took me walking in faith. In other words, I had to believe in what I couldn't see to make my way in this life. I know the One who provided for me. I have received the abundant life God has designed for me and you can too, with the right amount of faith (and works). Learn more about my story in the First Class Life Devotional® book.


“If you want to change the world, go home and love your family." - Mother Teresa  
Family should be a priority. We should be intentional to spend time and show love first to our family--despite shortcomings and disagreements. We learn to forgive, support and encourage each other. Growing up the youngest of my parent's children, I knew love. I was one loved child, which is why being orphaned at a young age was tough on me. I've learned a deeper appreciation for family by my life's experiences. And sometimes love costs us something. In the book I talk about what I believe it cost my daddy.


The abundant life God wants to provide us takes work on our part. Properly managing our finances is one way we do our part to ensure we leave a legacy of resources for future generations. That's why you'll find me educating my nieces and nephews on proper budgeting and investing in appreciating assets and eliminating depreciating purchases. We should support and invest in ourselves and in family members' visions. Amen? God has blessed me, and that's part of my testimony, but my humble beginnings...whew! Read more on that in the First Class Life® Devotional book.
