MANTRAS OR POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS Empower yourself with simple words or phrases that you repeat daily to reaffirm a belief or idea. Some popular mantras to begin with are “I deserve love and kindness” and “I am love. I am purpose. I was made with divine intention.” Stand in front of the mirror and repeat your affirmation to your reflection 5–10 times. This works best when done at the same time each day, such as first thing when you wake up or before you leave for work. VISION BOARDS A vision board serves as a daily, visual reminder of your innermost dreams and goals. Your vision board will contain images and words that connect you to them. To create one, give yourself a couple hours of quiet, uninterrupted time. Visualize three core desires and dreams. Then, find a sturdy piece of paper and some publications you don’t mind cutting up and make a collage of words and images that resonate with your dreams. Put your vision board where you’ll see it daily and repeat the visualization process every time you look at it. INSPIRING BOOKS The written word can be a powerful catalyst for motivating and uplifting us. It doesn’t just have to be your typical self-help genre, either. “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, for example, follows the journey of a protagonist as they visualize and manifest their deepest wishes. It’s an entertaining and easy-to-follow story, but it also holds many life lessons. THINGS TO HAPPEN Bring Them Into Your Life

first call, the initial interaction, and through getting the process started.” Jessica shares, “I love working with people and being able to help in a tough situation. When life throws someone a curveball, I want to make it easier.” For someone as happy to assist as Jessica, joining the Rinehardt Law team was a natural fit. Upon meeting attorneys Hillary and Melanie for the first time, Jessica says, “I felt a connection. I knew this is the place I want to be.”

Since coming on board at the firm, Jessica confirms that her initial instinct was spot on. “I’ve loved it from day one. Everyone is so great to work with.”
Outside of work, Jessica’s time is focused on her family. “I’m a mom of two boys, and that keeps me very busy,” she says with a laugh, adding, “I like to keep them busy.” She does this by engaging her sons in arts and crafts and finding ways for them all to stay active. “We love to go hiking and kayaking when it’s warm enough. I call it ‘going on adventures,’” Jessica says. A very crafty person herself, Jessica enjoys photography and getting crafty whenever she can.
Jessica’s favorite quote is Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
She says this verse is “a good reminder that when you get thrown in the trenches, even when it doesn’t feel like it, there is good ahead. You just have to trust it.”
