Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume.

Legacy Moms ~a place for you to be encouraged and inspired to embrace your calling as a mom.
 Click on the link above to see the Legacy Moms main page

We believe that women are called to pass on Biblical truth from one generation to the next.
     (Titus 2:3-5, Deuteronomy 6:4-9)

We believe that by educating, equipping and encouraging mothers, they will be inspired to embrace their calling and be intentional with their parenting, so that God can fulfill His purpose in their lives.
     (Philippians 1:6, Proverbs 31:25-31)

We believe that a mother, who learns to love God first and obey His word, will build a Godly heritage for her children and for many generations to come.
     (Exodus 20:6, Psalm 78:4-8)

Hi ,Jean Robb here. They say that "If a seed of a lettuce will not grow, we do not blame the lettuce. Instead, the fault lies with us for not having nourished the seed properly.". It's so important as parents to be an great example and encourage our children to be honest, healthy and caring adults. I'd like ti share a story about a group of mom's and a family doing just that. The story below comes to me from Ron and Carey Valderrama.

The Valderrama Family
Ron and I wanted to bless a family this year at Christmas. Our family 
goal was to be intentional about impacting a family in hopefully the 
same way Jesus would and we wanted to model for our children, the heart 
of serving and loving your neighbor.  But we weren't sure how to go about 
it.I received an email from Legacy Moms, a moms group that i meet with 
every month in Grapevine. They have a heart for moms and their children. 
They were contacted by a school nearby wanting to help some of their students 
and families who were in need of winter coats, shoes, binders, belts, food etc.  
One of the things we liked about the organization of this project, was that we 
could contact the families, build relationships with them, find out exactly what 
their needs were and be specific and individual with each family. Something else 
that touched our hearts was that some of the boys wanted mentors. This was an 
amazing and unique opportunity to become close and intentional with a family in 
need. Whether we were able to meet all of their financial needs or not, there 
was a need for friendship, caring, encouragement and so much more. 

Every year Legacy Moms reaches out and impacts their community. They do a 
wonderful job of sharing the heart of Jesus, not only at Christmas but all year 
long. If you are a mom or grandmother who has the amazing and yet challenging 
role of being an influence to a child, young or older, consider coming for a 
little encouragement. Come as you are. You will leave feeling blessed and ready 
to bless others. Here's all the information you'll need to get involved.
Legacy Moms is a place for you to be encouraged and inspired to embrace your calling as a mom. Through practical lessons, advice and discussions relevant to the issues facing moms today, Christian speaker Kym Carter and our team of dynamic and diverse moms will have you laughing, crying, and ready to take on the challenge of motherhood, regardless of the age of your children!
In addition to our monthly meetings, we also have an annual Dads' Night and our very popular Mother / Daughter Workshop.
At Legacy Moms, our goal is to encourage you with the fact that there is no way to be a perfect mom, but there are a thousand ways to be a great one! So come as you are, and begin building your legacy alongside us!

Legacy Moms was born out of a small group of women who met in Kym Carter’s living room once a month to talk about parenting issues from a biblical perspective. Having witnessed and experienced first-hand the result of parenting to the extreme: both extreme legalism and extreme permissiveness, Kym realized early on in her parenting journey that there was a healthier way, a biblical way to parent. She developed a great passion for moms and for parenting because she understood that it is a mom’s greatest privilege and responsibility to pass on a legacy to her children that is healthy, balanced, and consistent with the word of God. Kym started the moms’ group to share her passion and equip other moms with biblical principles to apply to the everyday struggles of motherhood.  Along the way, Kym and the rest of the women realized they were becoming better wives, better moms, and they were becoming the women God called them to be. They realized that having monthly accountability and encouragement from moms who shared their passion was crucial in that process. After many years, the group continued to grow, but as room became limited Kym started to feel that maybe it was time to call it quits and that perhaps the group had run its course. After much prayer, God made it clear to both Kym and her husband Sam that not only was it not over, it was just beginning! In the summer of 2005, Kym met with her longtime friend and accountability partner, Michele Richardson. Kym told Michele that she felt God was calling her to expand the ministry so that women from all walks of life, from all different denominations and backgrounds could be involved. Michele had also been sensing that God was calling her to a new ministry. Kym and Michele committed to pray about it for six months and see if this was really something God was calling them to do. From there, it has been quite an adventure! Things began to just “fall” into place (of course, it was all in God’s hands all along). By the end of 2005, 20 of the women who had been involved in Kym’s group answered the call to become part of the ministry and Legacy Moms was born! The first meeting was held in January, 2006 and it has been a blessing and a privilege to have served over 400 women from the DFW area. Legacy Moms was also honored by the Texas Rangers and Starbucks as a community MVP for service to the community. Our leadership team come from fantastic, Bible-based churches all over the metroplex, and have a variety of experiences, talents and life-situations that make our team a true picture of the body of Christ, each part different but working together as a whole! As different as we all are, the thing we have in common is a strong commitment to Christ and a passion for our families and for reaching other women. Kym has a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Pepperdine University, with a minor in sociology emphasizing marriage, family dynamics and inter-personal relationships. After graduation, Kym worked as a television producer, writer and on-camera talent until she found her “true calling”: being a mom! She lives in Fort Worth with her husband Sam and their three children. Kym and Sam have been married for 15 years and taught parenting classes and seminars for over 10 years at Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas and are currently members of Christ Chapel Bible Church in Fort Worth where they teach the Young Couples class. Kym is a popular speaker at women’s groups and ministries.

Leadership Team

“…we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD. We will tell of his power and the mighty miracles he did. For he issued his decree to Jacob; he gave his law to Israel. He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children, so the next generation might know them-- even the children not yet born-- that they in turn might teach their children. So each generation can set its hope anew on God, remembering his glorious miracles and obeying his commands. Then they will not be like their ancestors-- stubborn, rebellious, and unfaithful, refusing to give their hearts to God.”
     Psalm 78:4-8
