Healing the Spirit. Empowering the Soul.


               Community Service

There were many discussions in the last couple of years from colleagues, friends and family on the subject of Law of Attraction.

Therefore, on April 20th, 2013, I was delighted to have established a successful meet-up group for my community on this subject.

In addition, I was encouraged to launch the meet-up group by teaching a class on Affirmative and Effective Prayer; which utilizes the theories and concepts of the Law of Attraction.

Currently my group is learning, studying and applying the Law of Attraction concepts and theories.

What is so exciting is that this group is growing fast. We need a bigger facility to hold these meetings.

That is a good thing and I welcome it.


Abundant Blessings to all,

Rev. Rhonda Schienle


To all the beautiful Mom’s out there - I wish you a very Happy Mothers Day. May you savor each moment of this special day.

MOM’S,  we thank you for all you do to care for us, love us, nurture us and offer hope for us in the pursuit of our dreams.

To my Mommy - I love you and thank you.

In Gratitude and Love,

We do not become healers. We came as healers

Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become storytellers. We came as carriers of the stories, we and our ancestors actually lived. We are.

We do not become artists. We came as artists. We are.

Some of us are still catching up to what we ae.

We do not become writers, dancers, musicians, helpers, peacemakers. We came as such. We are.

Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not learn to love in this sense. We came as love. We are Love.

Some of us are still catching up to who we truly are.


Dear Friends

I love this picture. It is of my Mom and I. It was taken on Mothers day about 2 years ago.

This year, my Mom is about to retire and has asked her Daughter, that would be me, to also Baptize her. 

What a privilege it is to be asked by anyone to do a baptismal, but to have your Mom request their Ordained Minister Daughter, to officiate her Baptismal, is beyond words.

So in a few weeks, I am traveling to Idaho to perform this very special and sacred ceremony.

My mom has always called me “Baby Girl.” In this photo, I do not look much like a baby girl, but I am her only girl and how blessed I am to be her Daughter.

I love you Mom. See you soon.

~Valentine Marriage Proposal~

What do you think of when Valentines comes around each year?

A quiet candle lit dinner with your special love or catching a movie and eating chocolates. 

For some of you, love and romance is taken to the next level of commitment, with a proposal and an engagement ring. 

I love hearing the stories of how someone proposed to their loved one. The creative  methods in their surprise proposal is nothing short of priceless. 

There was a gentlemen who was able to get permission from a movie theatre, to put up a proposal video to his girlfriend, in place of one of their advertisements on Valentines. Could you imagine this scenario, with a 100 people you do not know in a movie theatre? That is creative genius to me.

If you are planning a wedding on Valentines or the month of February please contact me for a special wedding package ceremony.

Greetings Friends,

It is such a privilege to meet with couples to talk about their wedding ceremony! Recently, I officiated a themed wedding that was Old Glam Hollywood and it was the most beautiful ceremony.

From the moment the guests arrived they felt as if they were at a movie premiere. Popcorn and all. All the decorations, the Brides dress and the Groom’s Tuxedo, made you feel like you were attending an old Hollywood gala.

Even the cake had a movie projector ribbon across the top of it. Also, this wedding ceremony took place at one of our largest movie theaters in town.

I enjoy officiating private wedding ceremonies and have a special passion for themed weddings. 

Happy Wedded Bliss to the Newlyweds.

Rev. Rhonda Schienle

Greetings Friends,

One of my greatest specialities is assisting couples that desire a themed wedding and customizing their ceremony.

For example, I have a wedding next month that is an Old Glam Hollywood style wedding theme, with red carpet and will be held in a theatre. I am custom writing their vows that include a special poem and other special chosen words that are specific to this bride and groom. It is not a pre-printed template where you fill in the blanks with the participants names. 

I look forward to posting some photos next month of this wonderful wedding and occasion. It truly is one of the highlights of being a Minister. 

Bright Blessings,

Reverend Rhonda Schienle

Honoring my Uncle Manuel Newman


I would like to thank each and every person who has prayed for my Uncle Manuel over the last several months.

He lost his battle with cancer on July 4th, 2012, but this never broke his spirit.

My Uncle was a retired Chief of the United States Navy, serving 25 years for his country. He traveled the world, loved his wife, family, music, his animals and his Country. Salute.

He loved his wife, Lena, whom I admired for her dedication as a military wife, friend and confidant.

In this photo, you could see that I was the one bald and fighting my own battle of cancer. My Uncle encouraged me to stay strong and I did for him to the very end. 

As I read the obituary my Mom sent me (his sister), I loved the words he shared and thought we all could glean wisdom in his final message.

“As you all know, I’ve been fighting a long battle with lung cancer. I’ve lost this last confrontation, but maybe someone will benefit from my fight. Dying isn’t too bad, we are all going to meet our maker someday, acceptance is the key, God knows what, when, and why. Be true to yourself and I’ll see you on the other side.”

Until we meet again Uncle, I love and miss you.

Family Bench Dedication

60-second clip of dedication ceremony

 It was such a privilege and pleasure to do a family bench dedication in Ellington, Missouri this past May 15th, 2012

Here is a quote from my dedication speech

Our 2 families have served in wars together, formed friendships to last lifetimes and went so far as to name their children after each families namesake.”

This is a family friendship that has spanned the globe from Great Britain, Rhode Island to Ellington, Missouri and has lasted for 300 years. I am proud to say, I am a continuum of these 2 families.


In Gratitude,

Reverend Rhonda Schienle


Pruning Relationships That Don’t Serve You.

Everything we want to achieve in life involves relationships. While it’s important to learn how to build successful relationships, it’s equally valuable to choose wisely when determining which connections to nurture. 

Drop the Anchors

Achieving goals and greater levels of success require energy – sometimes an enormous amount. Negative people are like psychic vampires. They drain us of the precious energy we need to grow and achieve, making relationships with these individuals toxic to success. 

Until we reach the point in our self-development where we no longer allow people to affect us with their negativity, it’s best to avoid toxic people at all costs. They will hold us back with their victim mentality and mediocre standards.

To identify which relationships are draining you, make a list of all people you spend time with on a regular basis. Go through the list and put a minus sign (-) next to the people who are negative and toxic. Put a plus sign (+) next to the people who are positive and nurturing. 

Then stop spending time with the people on the negative list! If you don’t believe that is possible – for example, if you are surrounded by negative people at work – do your best to dramatically decrease the amount of time you spend with them.

Identify Your Best Investments

Another way that relationships can drain our energy is when we feel overwhelmed by the number of relationships we have to maintain.

The first thing to explore is the feeling of “have to.” Remember, there are no “have to’s” or “shoulds” in life. There are only “choose to’s.” We get to choose where we invest our time and energy – and that includes determining which relationships we want to maintain. 

“Have to” indicates that our motivation to maintain the relationships is based on fear. But to create greater success, we want to make decisions that are motivated by joy and excitement, as well as our purpose and goals. 

We are equipped with a handy inner guidance system that tells us when we are making decisions that are in alignment with our higher good: Joy. When we are not spending a lot of time feeling joyful, it is a clear sign that we are off course.

Review your list of relationships again, this time with a different set of criteria. Identify the people who bring you the greatest joy, as well as financial and professional success. Which relationships are critical to your bottom line? Which people are you most excited to spend time with? Which people are most important for you to keep in touch with? These are the relationships to cultivate.

Dan Sullivan, president of the Strategic Coach, teaches his clients to identify their top 20 relationships, as well as a “farm team,” which are 20 additional relationships that should be nurtured as future additions to the Top 20. Create this list for yourself, using joy as the measuring stick for personal relationships and bottom-line success for professional relationships.

Once your key relationships are identified, put the names into a chart, with the names prioritized in the first column. In the second column, add contact information so that it is readily available when you want to reach out to one of these key contacts. In the third column, answer the question, “What result(s) do I want to achieve with this person in the next 90 days?” Do you want them to hire you? Attend your seminar? Buy your book? Send referrals to you? Use this chart to guide your actions over the next three months as you nurture the key relationships.

You Get to Choose

In business particularly, you may feel that you are required to stay connected with more people than you would normally choose. 

Remember that you get to choose not only which relationships you want to nurture, but also how close each relationships will be and how you will stay connected. More than 235,000 people around the world have subscribed to my mailing list to stay in touch with me. I can’t develop personal relationships with everyone, of course. I choose to stay connected with my subscribers via tools such as my blog, e-zine and Inner Circle Club.

As world-renowned marine artist Wyland once said, “There are two types of people – anchors and motors. You want to lose the anchors and get with the motors because the motors are going somewhere and they’re having more fun. The anchors will just drag you down.” Carefully choose the relationships in which you invest your precious time and energy to ensure that your success isn’t slowed … and so that you experience a positive return on your investment.
