WE NEED YOUR HELP

We at TNR need your help! We are currently looking for people who will sponsor us, and allow us to show off their products on our YouTube and Twitch channel!

How does that look? Well, as of right now we are looking for around 5 to 10 businesses that would be willing to allow us to use their product in our videos/stream or be willing to sponsor our videos. Here are some of the things we would like to do:

  • Play Your Game: We enjoy worker-placement, RPG, and various board/card games. If you have a game you think we would like, please feel free to contact us.
  •  Review Your Product: We enjoy things like Audiobooks, physical books, I (Angie) enjoy makeup – to an extent -, coffee and tea, we enjoy good food, local mom and pop shops, and even comics. If you want us to review your product live or on a video we want to hear from you.
  •  Products for every day/practical use: By this, we simply mean things such as everyday household items, clothes, or items people use on a regular basis – at a reasonable price.
  • Help us make better content: These are things we use to stream and help make better content for our viewers and those who join our community. This would be the equipment we use, the chairs we sit in, etc. If you think we would enjoy it, would help facilitate a better outcome for our viewers, then we want to talk to you!

Last but not least, we need others to join our community and support us financially. Whether it is five dollars – less than a cup of coffee – or more, we need a group of people who will join the Twitch fam and subscribe each month to help us reach as many people as possible and share the love and joy we hope to foster in the world around us. We will have various levels you can subscribe at, and through each one, you will be able to get the following goodies:

  • Help create content – within reason – for our YouTube and Twitch channel
  • At the end of our stream/video, we will give you a shoutout!
  • You might get to do a collab with us or we will host and highlight your own channel!
  •  Every quarter we will have a giveaway!

And these are just a few of the things we have planned for our channel. Look forward to linking arms with you on this journey!

Happy Trails,

Chris and Angie Frantz

When Opportunity Knocks

 

springtimeHave you ever been offered an opportunity that you knew deep down you could do, but were scared out of your mind because you’ve never done it before? Well, recently I have found myself in that position. Because of the Anxiety Disorder, I have a hard time remembering things…important things usually. Because of this, I try to shy away from things where I am supposed to remember numbers, dates, etc. and sometimes that means not apply to a job or volunteering for something I know I could do if it was or AD. In an effort to pursue authenticity, honesty, and my purpose, I have begun to start stepping out, and when I begin to become anxious…well, I just use the techniques my counselors and psychiatrists have shown me.

Recently I began helping an outreach that I have volunteered for in the past, and I was asked to help with the music/dance portion of it. Now, I always loved this part of the program because it not only taught the children about the Bible, but it was fun and got them moving. The problem I have is, I don’t know if I can remember all the moves, and I guess you can say I’m afraid of messing up. The funny thing is someone once taught me a mantra, “Do it afraid!” and I recently read a book that spoke of the very same thing. So what do you do when opportunity is knocking and you are afraid you won’t live up to the expectations? From what I am learning, I just need to open the door. That’s it. Open the door, and take each moment one step at a time. Alone with this, I have learned to talk to God and trust Him to help me. You may think this as weak of me, but guess what? I am, and if you were honest, so are you. We all lean on and trust in something or someone, I just choose to lean on the one person who can actually help me.

So as I begin to take this step into the unknown, I hold on to hope and shift my focus from myself to helping those in the outreach. When I do this, I know that God will be there with me each step of the way, and in the end those I am serving will appreciate it…besides, as long as I don’t say anything, they won’t even know I was freaking out. I mean let’s be honest, most times we are scared and think people are judging our every move, the fact of the matter is they could care less what we are doing or not doing. I know that sounds harsh but honestly, most people are so wrapped up in their own stuff they barely take time to worry about what others are doing. So why not just take that step, open that door, and say yes to Opportunity?

As always, make sure to subscribe to the blog, share with friends, and comment below with something that stood out to you.

Until next time,

Angie
