13-Time World Boxing Hall of Fame Multi-Weight Champion & devout mother of two. See more here: http://torishonuffnelson.com/
Tori Nelson, gives hope to single mothers. Her hard work, dedication and motto --"suck it up" -- seem to help her persevere in balancing her dream career in boxing as well as taking care of her two teenage children. Tori Nelson first started boxing at the age of 29, but in her pursuit for the championship Nelson's journey is not so easy. Nelson is a single mother working three jobs; she works as a school bus driver, cafeteria worker and an IHOP waitress, and maintains all three while taking care of her children. "It's hard," says Nelson, "Especially doing it by myself because I don't get enough time to raise my own kids, but I just suck it up... because I know I got two mouths I got to feed." Nelson squeezes her training time in between jobs. Craig Fladager, Nelson's professional coach and manager, says, "God does extraordinary things through ordinary people, and this is a prime example of that." July 29, 2011, in the fifth fight of her career, Nelson won the World Boxing Council (WBC) Women's Middle Weight title. On February 11, 2012 she went on to unanimously win the coveted WIBA Middleweight title belt. Tori “Sho-Nuff” Nelson dropped to the Welterweight class to win the WIBA belt in September 2013. She feels that she will not be able to reach her full potential while balancing everything in her life. She says, "Until that time comes I just have to keep going, suck it up and keep going." Tori, alone, must work three minimum paying jobs (waitress, bus driver, cafeteria worker) to support her two children and to fulfill her dream to remain the #1 Women's Middleweight boxing champ in the world.

[02/02/20] Good morning Blessed Ones! Ok this is for us all. We want everything right away. If we do something different for a week wr want to see different results but we have to realize that it didn't take only a week to get what we got or where we are. If you want a microwave life keep being impatient and doing it your way but if you want change then pray be patient and wait on God. But while we are waiting and praying work on making the change and he will definitely help us. So don't stay stuck where you are that's not where you suppose to be. Always push for better! Be patient and watch how you will be Blessed!
What is the Best resort to visit in Hawaii. That has fun things to do like jet skiing etc....
Good morning blessed ones!
When God says YES
It doesn't matter what others say
Be Blessed Enjoy your YES
[01/30/20] Good morning blessed ones! Ok guys sit back and think how you treat people. (Especially when you mad) what if Jesus treat you the same way that you treated someone else. What if he gave you revenge like you plotted on someone else. Think about it! So do unto others as you want done to you. Treat people good. And if they do something to you don't try and revenge them...God got that part and it will be way more hurtful than what you can do. So love yourself and each other. (This is for us all. God is still working on all of us) 😉 Be Blessed and have a great safe productive day

So with that said live your best life starting this morning and tell the people you love that you love them don't wait you may not have another chance to do so. Be Blessed and Thankful for your life

Good morning blessed ones! OMG this message this morning came from God for me and I'm sure for some of yall too. Everything happens for a reason. If people walk out of your life let them go. If a job isn't working out let it go. Yes that person may have been there for yrs but God said they not going where you're going..they not ready. Even tho that job pays more you not supposed to be there.
Leave he has something better for you. Wow. What a message stay Blessed and Focused on the right things guys. Jesus will be your guide
