What was it like in Nazi Germany? I found out from this lady

I went and heard Gisela McBride speak of her experience growing up in Nazi Germany.It was exciting to hear her true life experiences.
Here are some of the notes I took:

Gisela was 7 years old when Hitler came to power. Gisela lived in Berlin during this time.

During the 12 years Hitler was in power all the German citizens rights were taken away.

The Enabling Act abolished the German Constitution & Civil rights.
*No freedom of assembly
*No freedom of speech
*No freedom of the person
*No freedom of the press
*No freedom to express an opinion
*No secretive communications

During 1940 there were ration cards. Example of what was given as a ration were
1 egg per week per person
7 grams of tea a month
1/4 pound cheese a month
1/2 pound cottage cheese
1 pound of meat a week per person. ( That would be like having a total of 4 Quarter Pounders but there were no fast food places back then to go get something to eat either).

Her mother had to stand in line for two hours at the grocery store because the rations and ration cards were so complex. (And here we complain when we have to stand in line more then 15 minutes at Walmart hu?!!)

Gisela was just an ordinary citizen but she explained what some of the requirements were to become a Nazi.
They had to trace their heritage back to 1700 to make sure their family line was pure. They had to do volunteer work for the Party, and they had to fully agree 100% with everything Hitler said and did. Nazi's are not to be confused with people in the German Army.

Children were expected even before the war to collect scrap metal. They kept records of it at school, and during the war, Gisela had a Nazi teacher so she wanted to make sure she collected the required amount of metal each week so she would not draw attention to herself. This was no easy feat mind you, as most of the scrap metal was already collected. Fortunately she had a family friend that worked in a plant and he was able to give her enough scrap where she even won a special prize. Something that she didn't even enjoy that wasn't even meant for children. haahha

There was a Hitler Youth Group that people under 14 were encouraged to join, but it was voluntary. Once you were in it there was nothing voluntary about it. What ever they told you to do, you had to do even if you had plans with your family. If they told you there was a meeting, you had to go to the meeting. There were no exceptions.
It wasn't easy to not join the Hitler Youth Group because during that time the law was that if you were not a part of the Youth Group then you couldn't go on to a University nor even be apprentice.

Church Pastors had to agree to "be under Hitler". If they didn't agree, they were persecuted and many times killed. Many did die.

Gisela happened to see Hitler twice during her outings.

Right before the war ended, Hitler even had 12 year old boys manning the anti aircraft guns.

During the war you could get arrested for saying anything against Hitler.
Also you were not allow to listen to any radio stations broadcasting outside of Germany.
If you were caught doing any of these things you would be arrested and tried. If found guilty within 72 hours you were either going to receive 8 years of hard labor or executed.
Her mother would listen to BBC on the radio. She didn't' even dare tell Gisela for safety reasons, just in case she might of said something at school.

Old people and people needing extra physical help that were institutionalized were soon after reported dead. Hitler felt these people were useless, taking up much needed food and extra man power, so he ordered them killed.

Right before the meeting started we all received a copy of The Constitution of the United States.
I asked Gisela after the meeting what was her purpose of giving these meetings and she said "It's important that we know these things, so we do not loose our freedoms here in the USA".

Thank you Gisela for sharing your life story.

Gisela R McBride has a book she has written if you want to know more of her story called:
Through My Eyes- Memoirs of Hitler's Berlin can be found online at

Wealth and Riches comes through keeping our Constitution and Civil Rights safe here in the USA. Let Freedom Ring!!


Relationships and Grace

I don't pretend to be a "relationship expert" but I have learned a few things that I love to pass along to you.

Grace- Ever hear your spouse say something that isn't quite right on, or how about they are upset about something and they say things they don't really mean? That's where grace comes in from you. Looking over the offense and loving the person for who they are.
Not everything has to be "according to you". Listen to your spouse's point of view, even if you don't totally agree with it and when you do perhaps you will learn something new that you never knew before about the subject or even about your husband or wife.

How about when they forget something? Do you bring it up each time even though it's a minor thing? Remember grace each time and just forget about it and go on with loving him or her. It will bring much more harmony into your relationship. Harmony in your relationship will allow the gates of Wealth and Riches to come open and flow in and through you to others.

Sharing Your Life Message

I just returned from a breakfast meeting about "Sharing Your Life Message"

What is the message of your life?

My message being a follower of Christ I love to share how He came into my life, changed my life, and the good news He has for others.

Before knowing the Lord, I had been studying and practicing all kinds of Occultist things such as witchcraft spells, Ouija boards, talking to the dead, and the like. When I found out long ago that this wasn't what God had in mind for me, I received the Lord into my life and He forgave me of all my sins. Since then God has filled me with a love for Him and for others that I would of never had on my own. I am so thankful to God for all He has done for me.

The good news is, God is waiting for you too to give your life to Him. He wants to clean you from all sin, and throw it into the sea for forgotteness. A brand new you! Wouldn't that be wonderful? That's true Wealth and Riches my friend, and I'm glad to share it with you online.

Questions? Please ask. Have a GGGGGREAT weekend!

To be Truely Wealthy

I believe a person to be truely wealthy must be person that is rich spiritually.
I'm going to make a statement that might not be that popular but I love you enough to tell you the truth. There is Only ONE WAY to truly be rich spiritually and that is through Jesus Christ. Not through works, not through anything you can do or say, not through psychics, not through any other means but Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself said "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes unto the Father but by me.
But let me ask you something...who is Jesus to you? A good teacher, a man, or the Son of God?
Why should you believe and accept what I'm saying as truth? I have a very logical answer for you to think about. Tell me any other books that are put together as one, that are 100% correct in foretelling the future other than the Bible? There is not a one, yet the books of the Bible were written hundreds of years a part and confirmed each foretelling of the future. It quite plainly foretold the Birth, life and death of Jesus Christ down to a T! You know how? Because God is the author of each book. There is no other way to logically explain it when you really study and see how each book was written a part from one another.

To be truly wealthy is to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life. Without this aspect in your life, the rest is but rust as money can come and go, but salvation of the soul will last forever.

Ask Jesus to come into your heart today. I'll give you a prayer to say, and if you say it and mean it with your heart you will be saved:
"Dear Lord, I come before you a sinner. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and is raised again from the dead. I repent from my sins and ask that you forgive me of all my sins, and come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me, in Jesus name amen.

If you said that prayer and meant it from your heart, then the Bible says you are now Born again and that all of your sins are washed clean by the blood of Jesus.
You have taken your very first step as a Christian.
Please let me know that you have made a decision for Christ today, and I'll guide you further in your walk with the Lord. If you haven't yet said that prayer, I encourage you to do so today, as none of us are promised tomorrow. If you have any questions, please let me know.
God bless you!


Positive thinking and action-Notes from Les Brown Video

It's more than a dream or a wish to get Wealth and Riches.
It takes positive thinking AND action.

Here are some notes I took recently watching a Les Brown video.

1. Listen to motivational messages every day

2. Read 10 to 15 pages of something positive everyday

3. Upgrade my relationships. An asset to me not a liability. Make friends that have goals and dreams and making more money than me.

4. Write down the goals I want to achieve on a 3x5 card. One side write Matt 7:7 Ask and it shall be given…

5. Join a Mastermind Group

6. Get a business coach

7. What in your past is affecting you? Visualize as if I’m already there.

8. Take full responsibility. Make it happen!

9. Write down 12 reasons why I won’t give up.

Write this down and read it everyday:

“Life is a fight for territory. Once you stop fighting for what you want, what ever you don’t want will automatically take over.
