Testimonials

A note from Nadine…

Early in 2007 I realized that my relationship with Warm Spirit was not what I thought it was. The partnership that I believed that I shared with my then business partner had changed tremendously; my belief that I was an equal partner and therefore shareholder in the company that I had created and nurtured was shattered. I owned nothing, not a single share of the company that I built!!!!

After coming to terms with this reality, I attempted to raise the capital needed to purchase Warm Spirit but that offer was refused. In August of 2007, I experienced what felt like a hostile take-over of the company by the financer and his new business partner; I was devastated, crushed and depressed. This beautiful company that I created and built over the last 10 years was stripped away.

It is sad to admit the truth that it sometimes takes a tragedy in one’s life to remind us of our faith and sometimes unexpected blessings may come in the form of words which provide healing and encouragement. One email that I received I thought was incredibly profound so I named this testimonial document after the theme of digging another well. These words from Ms. Bethea was one of the most powerful sermons that I have read on faith, resilience and encouragement to move forward. I must have read this email a few dozen times in the last few months.

The other important message that I received during this trying time was the reminder of the scripture: “Be Still and Know That I am God”. Through my personal stillness and silence “God’s Will” for me became abundantly clear and has helped me to move forward in ways that were impossible to have imagined. I thank you very much for respecting my need to be silent during this time and allowing me the space to heal and be restored.

You must also know that I did take the advice of Ms. Bethea and I have begun my task of digging another well. That “well” is called Soul Purpose Lifestyle Company and The Nsoromma Foundation; they are beautiful beyond what I could have ever imagined. Another reminder of the faith statement that when “He Closes a Door He Opens Another”.

I do not know a lot for sure at this time in my life but what I do know is that 2007 would be a year of unexpected blessings and those blessings continue to be revealed.

Much love to you and your family and I pray for God’s continued blessings in your life.

Nadine Abraham Thompson

Hello, Ms. Nadine!

I am one of your Warm Spirit ladies.

Ms. Nadine,I sensed that the “change” that has occurred at Warm Spirit was not right. Nevertheless, I would like to share a word of encouragement and edification with you. In Genesis 26:17-22, Isaac moves to the Gerar Valley. There he digs up the wells his father, Abraham dug, which were filled in by the Philistines. After digging the first well, the shepherds of Gerar quarreled with him about it. So, Isaac left that well but not before he named it, “Esek” or argument. He had another well dug but there was a dispute about this one. Again, Isaac leaves that one but he names it, “Sitnah” or hostility.

Finally, he digs a well without anyone fussing or contending with him about it. This one he names, “Rehoboth” or open. He said, “For now the Lord hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.”

Ms. Nadine,dig another well! The Lord allowed you to help dig the well called “Warm Spirit” and it prospered. But could it be that a Philistine or shepherds of Gerar, helped you dig that well? No matter, I am going to believe that God will bless YOUR hands to dig the next well but with an Aaron and a Hur to help lift your arms up this time!

Dig another well because you have already seen the anointing of God manifest in your life and bring forth fruit!

Dig another well and watch this pruning experience you are still smarting from bring forth more fruit!

Dig another well so that the Lord can show you another reason why He is indeed “the Resurrection and the Life”!

Dig another well to the praise of His glorious grace!

Dig another well because you cannot quit now!

There are more for you than against you! I am not the world’s greatest saleswoman but I am one of the Body of Christ’s best cheerleaders!

Be healed and made whole from this experience. And then…Dig another well!!!

Hi Nadine

I just wanted to take some time out to send you a note of Thanks! Wow! The experience that I had this weekend, has changed my life. I know that it has done the same for so many others as well.

I just want to send you this note to offer you my sincere THANKS! I know we don’t talk often, but what you have done for myself and the entire community is just amazing. I don’t know if any of us will ever fully understand the impact that has been had on the world because of Warm Spirit.

All of this began because of you. And my, my, my what a large calling God has on your life. I just want you to know that your vision for Warm Spirit has inspired us all.

XOXO, Toni

Continued success to you Nadine…keep up the good work!back to top

Peace and Blessings Again Nadine,

This is Bev W. and I wrote to you earlier. I hesitate to ask as I type, however, if I never ask then I can’t complain.

I am a Warm Spirit consultant, and while I don’t do gang-buster sales, I LOVE WARM SPIRIT. You are one of the things I love most. I absolutely felt a Spiritual connection with this Vision of yours. I am not a bible scholar like Rysia, but I do remember the scripture and this is a paraphrase, “without a Vision the people will perish”. What happened? I have heard all kinds of things, and they all disturb me. I want to know that you are ok, or not with what has happened because it does effect my future relationship with the company.

The fact that an African-American woman was the CEO was very instrumental in my decision to become a consultant. I love the product! If I feel hurt and betrayed, I can’t imagine how you must feel. Daniel’s decision was wrong. Is there any hope that you will return? If not, I fear for the future of WS. Many, many lives will be altered. I don’t feel good about what has happened, and I question Daniel’s sincerity when he says he wants to empower African American women…. if he does he should have begun with you.

If you would be so kind as to email me, even if it is just to say how you and your family are doing I will feel a little sense of peace. Not hearing anything from you directly has a lot of us reevaluating our relationship with WS. Many consultants have moved on to other companies (Silpada is getting a lot of us) and while Carol’s Daughter is in no way equal to our quality, the African American ownership/partnership is still there.

I continue to keep you and yours lifted in prayer. I hope to hear from you soon.

Loving you with the Love of Christ,

Bev W.back to top

Nadine,

Best of luck in your endeavors—I know with every fiber of my being that you are and will continue to be well. I support you and where ever you go, I will be there. So get out and start that company girlfriend. I’m waiting!!!

Peace and Blessings Nadine,

I just want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, and have been. I want you to know that what you have done has been ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and I cannot wait to see what the Lord has for you next! I pray the Lords’ PEACE, PRESENCE, POWER, and PROTECTION for your home. My hands can’t type my thoughts and feelings fast enough!! Just know that you are cared about in a very special way. Whatever “list” there is please put me on it too!
Loving you with the Love of Christ,

Hi Nadine!

I feel so very fortunate to have been in your company when you were in Atlanta in December 2004 (my first meeting as a consultant at Eagles Landing Country Club) and then again at our annual Sales Celebration/Conference in Atlanta in 2005 (I was 8 months pregnant at the time). The last thing I remember at that conference was you on my right and Char on my left and we, along with many other
consultants, were all in a circle crying tears of joy on the last day of events.

I LOVE hearing your voice on our weekly calls and I just wanted to let you know how much you’ll be missed!

Warmly,

Nichelle

Think where man’s glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such a friend.

Hello
Beautiful

I love your products and your attitude on beauty.

You are making remarkable strides in “empowering women” to capture and promote their beauty from within.

I am a consultant of wellness and self-care, and I will follow your lead to tell the world of our mission and
products. Keep up the good work….Ephesians 3:16.

Love in Jesus,

Lindaback to top

Just a note to say thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for your vision. Thank you for being a pioneer in something that I know will live a long time. Thank you for helping people that you don’t even know their name but they know your name. But most of all thank you for letting our Lord Jesus Christ lead and guide you and the company that you and Daniel gave birth to.

I know I explained the reason you saw me crying. But I was so full and so blown away by your presence and the fact that I finally had the privilege to meet you. I have your picture on desk just to remind me that someone of your caliber cares about people. You see, I am a people person. I used my nursing as my ministry and when I was blindsided by Fibromyalgia it seemed to have put me in a deep depression. But God kept dealing with me and revealing to me that He was not letting me give up on a career that I loved and was destined to do. Those revelations were given to me in dreams. Even though my body was turning on me I was having dreams and I was still walking the hospital halls seeing my patients, smiling and caring for them and ministering to them. But I never let myself feel self pity because there were patients much worst than myself and I had no right to feel sorry for myself.

But due to this wonderful product called Restore I am being given a second chance. As I always have said “Your health is your wealth”. My Rheumatologist is most impressed with Restore. He is referring his hard to manage patients to me to let them know there is an option that he approves. Coming from him that is saying a lot. He is a renowned physician in his field. I have given Restore to several of our local physicians. One has started her father on it and reports more periods of lucidness. So you see, you are affecting people you don’t even know. I thank God for you and pray for you and your family.

I thoroughly enjoyed this past weekend. I know someone told you of what happened Sat nite. The visitation of the Holy Spirit was the only answer I can explain. I definitely know I am in the right place. I came away with a renewed spirit, rejuvenated and very humbled by all your great women & men who are in charge of this beautiful company.

Lots of love & will see you in July.

Good Morning Nadine,

I apologize for not having contacted you sooner. After my initial shock, sorrow and anger, I found myself at a loss for words. My heart aches and it’s taken awhile to get a grip. The hurt remains but I wanted you to know that I am praying for you, I’ve always loved and admired you. A few years ago I wrote you an e-mail indicating how I could kick myself for not seeing the vision initially, being the first Consultant in Maryland. The Lupus has not defeated me and the stroke in 2005 has strengthened me even more.

I’ve since learned that I had to follow God’s, plan not my plan and in his time. I want you to know that I admire and look up to you as a role model. I intend to be successful as a tribute to you & Madame C.J. Walker. I truly believe that God has a master plan for you and Warm Spirit was the preparatory process for greater things to come. I realize that you cannot respond back but know that I am and always will be with you. Should you decide to venture out into something else please keep me in mind. I look forward to partnering with you again.

Love

Dear Nadine,

I recently had an opportunity to read your letter to the executive council, which revealed the TRUTH concerning your departure from Warm Spirit. I first would like to start of this email off by saying that I am sorry and saddened by this entire ordeal. I can’t imagine what you are feeling, but I want you to know that you have my support and prayers.

I sat down to write you this email this evening, because as I reflected on what I did last year for my birthday it was your presence in Springfield, MA at Western New England College (my place of employment) that I considered to be my most spectacular birthday gift of all!You have been an inspirational role model for me, and your vision in starting Warm Spirit motivates me on a daily basis. I constantly keep you in my thoughts and prayers, and needless to say in August when I read Daniel’s message I was confused, concerned, and down-right baffled. Why would you leave Warm Spirit? Your company, that you dedicated so much of yourself to by means of your time, effort, and God directed vision. Why? I just kept wondering, and asking God to reveal the truth. And then I got a copy of your message that brought me to tears.

I have never felt lied to while being a part of Warm Spirit for the past two years, because we were a company that did well by doing good. However, the vibe has been different of late and information has been presented in an untruthful manner. There is a level of character that is required to be a leader that others will follow joyfully. Nadine you brought that joy and character to the Warm Spirit community. You inspired thousands of women and men including myself to live to our potential. In my opinion, Warm Spirit will NEVER be what it has the potential to become without your presence. As a fellow social worker, I am not sure of the next step but I want you to know that you have my complete support. Please call me, email, etc to let me know how I can be of assistance to you.

In closing, I saw this quote the other day and I thought of you and your determination in birthing Warm Spirit. “Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them. They make the impossible happen.” Thank you for your vision, please know that your greatness continues to inspire me!

Blessings,

Nadine,

Those of us who have had the opportunity to spend a few brief moments in your presence realize that your dream and goal were truly sincere. It is unfortunate that Daniel chose to remove you from your position, but always remember that what is for you, you will get. You have gone through this experience in order to prepare you for bigger and better things – use it for that purpose. Don’t look back – look forward. I will continue to keep you in my prayers and wish you nothing but success as you start our on your new journey of success.

Hi Nadine,

I just want you to know that you help me change alot of people lifes since I been living the dream you have created in Warm Spirit. I started a non profit organization call The Loving Home of Lady Magdalene for young pregnant women that are homeless. I won your continous care contest which was $2,500 dollars that money did not go to me it went straight to the home for the women and their new born babies. You were truly a blessing the LORD JESUS will smile on you and bless you in your next business adventure. Because you are truly bless.

Love you very much for what you have create

GOD Bless YOU Nadine.

Hi Nadine,

Sorry to take so long to find you but nevertheless I just wanted to say that I’m saddened to see you leave and truly do wish you and your family much succsess, health and happiness. I really don’t know what WS will be without you. I’m not sure what happened other than what I read on the Warm Spirit connections and the call a couple of weeks ago.but I do know you will be missed greatly. You were Warm Spirit. I just want to thank you for allowing me to be apart of such a great community of positive women, I want to thank you for creating such fabulous formulas that I wasn’t ashamed to share with others. I Thank you for all your geniuness. I thank you for all the tireless days and nights that you spent making Warm Spirit better. I thank you for sharing your family with us. I thank you for so much for all that you’ve done and just don’t want to forget anything.

Please keep in touch and I’d love to know of your next venture.

Take care and be blessed. Also continue to get well.

I love you amd I thank you for sharing your life and time with the Warm Spirit community.

Well, it’s been hard getting to this point. I wanted to allow my intense emotions to settle down before writing to you. Shock, disbelief, suspicion, anger, and then fortitude, strength, steadfastness, pride (good pride). I am proud of all that you represent and all that you have poured into this company. What will NEVER change is that YOU emptied yourself into something that MUST go on or else your work would have been in vain. We cannot allow this to cause all of your sacrifices to not be worth something in the end. You are the heart and soul of Warm Spirit, we became the heart and soul of Warm Spirit and must continue to share with others this mission and carry it on to God’s glory first and to yours second.

“The Story” will never change…Nadine Thompson started this company, Nadine Thompson had in her heart and mind the empowerment of women who looked like her, Nadine Thompson chose to embrace all that is natural, beautiful and pure in creating her line of phenomenal products…The Story will NEVER change and I WILL push forward to let as many people know about Nadine Thompson as I can.

Be Blessed…AND Empowered, We will love you forever…You ARE a QUEEN, THE Queen of WARM SPIRIT

wamspirit story. My first prayer is you come back to warmspirit. There is no warmspirit without Nadine!
Please keep us inform on your new company because we are going to follow you!
I realize I had been with warmspirit less then two years but I had two great losses last month. Traci
McKnight told me about warmspirit. Because of her I became a consultant. My prayers are with you and Traci’s family.

Nadine I received this from one of my prayer partners who is pray for you
Restoration Mentality
Today’s Scripture
“And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten…” (Joel 2:25).

Today’s Word

God is a god of restoration! You may have had some disappointments or unfair things happen in your life, but instead of dwelling on the past and living defeated, take a stand and focus on God’s promise of restoration. Draw a line in the sand and say, “I am a child of the Most High God, and I’m not going to live my life negative and defeated. This is a new day, and I’m taking back what belongs to me!” That’s having a restoration mentality. God wants to restore everything that’s been stolen. He wants to restore your joy, restore your peace, restore your health, and restore your finances. But here’s the key: you have to have a vision for it. You have to get your hopes up. You have to decide to get your thoughts and words going in the right direction. Focus on the future and release past hurts through forgiveness. Decide today to get up every morning hoping, expecting, and believing. Know that God is going to pay you back. Thank Him for restoring everything that the enemy has stolen from you!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank You for choosing to restore my life. Thank You for the truth of Your Word that sets me free. Fill me with Your power today so that I may stand strong and move forward on the path You have for me today. I love You and bless Your Name. In Jesus’ Name.

Amen

Let start by saying my heart is heavy, and as I sit here trying to find the words to express how you have meant so much in my life my eye well with tears. You will always be “Warm Spirit” to me and so many others who’s lives you have touched and it is my promise to you to continue on with the vision. I know in my heart of heart that is the best way I can show you what you’ve meant in my life, and to honor you!
For me to continue to be empowered and to help others do the same is the gift that I wish to give to you. As it may be a small token of
what I wish I could put into words. It can never measure up to what
your vision has done for African American women all across this country. My love and prayers to you and your family. I tell people I met all time that Nadine created this company for you and she doesn’t even know you. Oh but you do know us. You know the struggles, the courage, the sincere effort we have to do better in our lives.
You have given us a gift, a blessing, a tremendous opportunity that I

Nadine,

You have done so much for so many people that you can rest assured knowing your legacy remains as a permanent impression on us individually.
In my close circle alone, I know that your work has changed lives:

* My up-line and friend, Kristin H., just reached Executive prior to conference.
* My close friend, Danisha T., left her corporate job and has been able to pursue her life-long dream of being a hair stylist and beauty specialist because of her Warm Spirit business. She is winning awards left and right and is such a testament.
* My sponsor and close friend, Kandace J. is also my business partner in founding Global Elevation.
* And my mother, found new life and passion through her Warm Spirit business.

We’re just five of tens-of-thousands of lives directly impacted by Warm Spirit’s business opportunity with hundreds-of-thousands if not millions of lives impacted by products and indirectly through our joy and successes.
We have all found life through Warm Spirit!!!

I recognize that this is a difficult time and pray for your peace & restoration through healing.

I look forward to meeting you one day soon and wish you all of God’s blessings,

OPENED AND CLOSED DOORS

We need to learn to thank the Lord for closed doors just as much as we do for open doors. The reason God closes doors is because He has not prepared anything over there for us.

If he didn’t close the wrong door we would never find our way to the right door. Even when we don’t realize it, God directs our paths through the closing and opening of doors. When one door closes, it forces us to change our course. Another door closes; it forces us to change our course yet again.

Then finally, we find the open door and walk right into our blessing.

But instead of praising God for the closed door (which kept us out of trouble), we get upset because we “judge by the appearances.” And in our own arrogance, or ignorance, we insist that we know what is right.
We have a very present help in the time of need who is always standing guard. Because He walks ahead of us, He can see trouble down the road and HE sets up road blocks and detours accordingly. But through our lack of wisdom we try to tear down the roadblocks or push aside the detour signs. Then the minute we get into trouble, we start crying “Lord how could this happen to me?”
We have got to realize that the closed door was a blessing. Didn’t He say that “No good thing wil l He withhold from them that love Him?”
If you get terminated from your job – don’t be down, instead thank God for the new opportunities that will manifest themselves – it might be a better job, or an opportunity to go to school. If that man or woman won’t return your call – it might not be them, it might be the Lord setting up a roadblock (just let it go).
One time a person had a bank he had been doing business with for many years tell him “NO” for a $10,000 loan. The Lord led him to call another bank. That bank approved a $40,000 loan for him at a lower interest rate than his own bank had advertised. I’m so grateful, for the many times
God has closed doors to me, just to open them in the most unexpected places. “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.” (Psalms 37:23)

The Mountain top is glorious, but it is in the Valley that I will grow!

Always Remember God gives you…
Enough Happiness to keep you Sweet
Enough Trials to keep you Strong
Enough Sorrows to keep you Human
Enough Hope to keep you Happy
Enough Failure to keep you Humble
Enough Success to keep you Eager
Enough Friends to give you Comfort
Enough Wealth to meet your Needs
Enough Enthusiasm to make you look forward
Enough Faith to banish depression, and Enough Determination to make each day a better day than the last.

Life must be lived forward but can only be understood backwards.

Commit to the Lord in whatever you do and your plans will succeed.

(Proverbs 16:3)back to top

Dear Nadine,

I joined Warm Spirit last spring motivated by the opportunity to make a career out of doing something great for others. Although I’ve never met you nor had the opportunity to see you, you are truly a blessing to me and all Warm Spirit consultants new & old, past and present. I started my business while recovering from a myomectomy (removal of uterine fibroids) which also coincided with a very unstable point in the history of my former employer (which filed bankruptcy within a few months). WS brought so much peace to me at that time, not only because of the work that I was doing for others but it also helped me recognize the control I have over my life & future. I have since entered a one-year Masters program at the University of London and had to redirect the greatest portion of my efforts to completing that degree.

I have been so inspired by the stories of other Warm Spirit consultants that I recently founded a non-profit, Global Elevation, to bring business leadership and entrepreneurial skills training to high school and university students of the African Diaspora. I can honestly say that the fire ignited in my through Warm Spirit has helped me dream beyond the walls and limitations I set for myself. I am not sure of my future with Warm Spirit as I feel my passion definitely lies with youth development but I know that it has impacted my life in so many ways.

I am truly grateful for your leadership. Without your 10 years of dedication, selflessness and vision, Warm Spirit would have never reached me. I can’t say where I would have been without Warm Spirit but I know where I am today because of it. I love life and the opportunities that God has for me and pray that he continues to guide you throughout yours. I believe in His will and know that it will carry us all to greatness beyond our imagination if we trust Him to lead us.

I thank you for letting God lead you this far. Know that you are in my prayers.

Ubuntu!

From Your #1 Seller for the Year.

Auntie Nadine, I am in prayer for you and us (and our adversary) and I will let my team know to be in prayer as well. Rest easy! The battle is already won, you (we) just have to walk through it. Good night.

With Love and Support,

Hi Nadine,

What can I say? You are an icon, yet an auntie. I can’t express how what you have done has completely freed me up to be who I was created to be – a woman who nurtures, cares for and empowers others. What a beautiful thing you have done. I thought you and Warm Spirit would be together forever and in many ways that is still the case. I will continue to tell your story. If anything happened that was not righteous, vengence is the Lord’s. My spirit says there may have been decisions made that were not righteous. I would have loved to hear from you in a corporate communication, however, I know you are doing what you need to do and what is best for you. So with that, I just want to express how much I love you and everything you stand for. Truth. Beauty. Strength.

Love Always,

Hi Nadine,

I thank GOD for you Nadine and for your vision. I celebrate you and your family. In my heart I believe that you are “Warm Spirit”. You are the one who set the trend, the legacy, the community, the respect, the elitist, and the confidence and high self-esteem that so many women have gained through your vision and hard work. You are the face of Warm Spirit that everyone sees. My love, support and my prayer goes out to you and your family. You will “bounce back from this setback”.

Warm Spiritly,

Greetings My Dear Sister, Leader, Mentor and Friend,

Praying that all is well with you and your family. I hope this email is not an intrusion into your life but I would be remiss if I did not reach out to you and share my feelings because honestly my heart is broken. I joined Warm Spirit in February of 2006 and had used a few products a year prior to making a decision to become a consultant. My fiance was locked away behind the razor wire and came across the article in Black Enterprise magazine that feautured you and the company. He immediately sent it to me and strongly encouraged me to research and connect. We are very African conscious people always looking to uplift ourselves and our race. When I saw your beautiful face and met your beautiful spirit, a sister who looked like me I knew this is where I wanted to be. To date, since joining Warm Spirit my life has changed in so many ways, especially spiritually. Your vision is manifesting itself in my life and you are d efinitely the reason why. Fast forward to present day Warm Spirit. When that email from Daniel came across I was in total shock. The wave of emotions that went through me were certainly indescribable. I wanted to know how you and your family were handling this at that moment. I wanted to reach out to you then but didn’t know how. I needed and wanted you to help me understand all of this and now WHAT MUST WE DO. When you start up WARMER SPIRIT, I’m on board. No ifs ands or buts about it. Nadine I support you in whatever you want to do. Right now I’m feeling betrayed, lied to and I feel that is something totally underhanded and wrong going on. I’ve spoken to a few consultants that feel the same way I do and we are looking to the upper level of leadership for comfort. And it just seem so strange that they all seem to just want to go on with business as usual. It can never be business as usual for me. Y es I want to make money and have a life that I have always dreamed but I am not willing to sell my soul for 30 pieces of silver to have that. I had an event this weekend and stumbled over my words when sharing Warm Spirit because you are always a part of my testimony related to this company. Personally, I feel the entire community should not sale for a period as a means of protest and even want to go as far as to make signs and go wherever we need to go to PICKET. This whole scene is like history repeating itself on our people all over again. It seems that once again the powerful exploiting the work of the righteous. Thank you for allowing me to share. There is much more but I will pause for now. I just wanted to reach out and let you know that you have my full support and I love you. I did have an opportunity to meet you at Conference ’06. Wasn’t able to make it this year, but my spirit was certainly there with you and the rest of the community. Be well my dear sister, BE WELL!

Peace & Blessings,

After last night empowerment call that the community at large have a whole lot of questions and uneasiness. Was Nadine Thompson fired or not? Attached are two very different versions of her sudden departure. Hard to believe that anyone would resign from a 10 year career while out on medical leave. (there’s insurance coverage to think about. Nadine wouldn’t quit and lose her medical coverage while in recovering from gastic bypass surgery)

1) If Nadine is co-founder of Warm Spiirt, how could she be fired? So she had to quit, right?

2) Is Warm Spirit a BLACK owned & operated business as marketed to the public, all the famous BLACK celebrities endorsers, ESSENCE, BLACK ENTERPRISE,JET, EBONY, BET, etc?

3) If WS is not a BLACK owned & operated business, how did WS qualify for BLACK ENTERPRISE Emerging Company of the Year award and win it?

4) Are the 99% BLACK consultants just out here in the field working to sell products and illusions of becoming rich is just a carrot in front to keep selling making a little gas money?

5) Why didn’t anyone on the executive council bother to share with the entire community Nadine’s email that she was FIRED instead of leaking it to a few?
Char not addressing Nadine on the call as tho she simply vanished into thin air was appalling. Daniel has stated many times that without Nadine, there will be no Warm Spirit. So, ?????

Altho, he clearly stated in his letter that he is seeking a new AFRICAN AMERICAN to take the current vision forward. (what’s really happening here?)
Nadine announced at conference that she was purchasing ownership. What happened? Was it ok for her to be just an employee and not seek ownership that would make WS what everybody think it already was… BLACK OWNED & OPERATED.

This has got to be publicly humiliating for such a proud BLACK woman, the only reason she has gone away so quietly. Since her emails & phones are non responsive- The rumor is she has returned to Canada to start over without a farewell to her beloved consultants family. It just doesn’t feel right…
So Ladies & Gentlemen, what is the REAL TRUTH

Kisha M.

Reginia, I cannot tell you how good it is to hear ANYTHING about Nadine’s present state. Loss is seldom pleasant and never easy. Nadine and her family are in my prayers and I know that The Creator has a larger dream for her than she can dream for herself. Again, thank you for relieving my own angst surrounding this issue. Be well and I will locate and use Nadine’s personal email address to wish her a speedy and whole recovery (mind, body, spirit).

Rhonda K.back to top

I know it’s been quite some time since we have spoken. I would like to thank you for including me on today’s call.

God works in mysterious ways. I’m going through a situation similar to Nadine’s ( the clash of visionary and business savvy) and today’s call helped me to confirm that although there are some tough strings to cut loose…one has to do it and continue on with their vision with the proper tools in tact no matter how uncomfortable it feels. WS is a vehicle for Nadine to embrace whatever weaknesses exists and continue to flow with her strengths toward her purpose. It is human nature to operate in flight or fight mode and it is truly a phase. The vehicle may have to go into vacation mode and resurface into the plan it was intended to serve or the vehicle will have to be cut loose and rebranded. Bottom line both scenarios will offer the benefits she seeks toward her Ideal Success Plan from the business side as well as from the visionary side.

I hope the words I have shared, the experiences I have gained will offer some sort of comfort while the caterpillar is cocooning…I look forward to Spring Butterflies evolving…What a beautiful vision.

Granted I’m still cocooning but with the nurturing, support, inspiration and motivation to succeed…the essence of Nadine Thompson..I too shall always be empowered by her greatness.

Heck with the Bullies…the Border Bullies are ready… I read the Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson over the weekend and it makes a lot of sense.

Take Care and please let Nadine know that almost a year ago…she made a dream of mine come true,I’m forever grateful and will follow and support her Warm Spirit in a way she intends to attain her dreams.

Hi Lady Nadine,

I am shocked at the positive responses and well wishes that my team has sent to me to send your way. They send their blessings and only want the best for you! I did not know until this weekend just how much they cared. The word going around my team is that they are sending up prayers for you big time.

Someone once shared with me that in order to get a Blessing you must 1st be a Blessing and the Blessing will only come once we do 2 things:
1. UNDERSTAND the Storm
2. Let Go of the past that lead to the Storm
(sometimes we just have to get out of our own way for GOD to move)

Peace and Blessings

Good Morning Beautiful,

You are always on my mind and in my prayers. I love, admire and appreciate you so very much. All weekend I thought about this poem and you and wanted to share. I will call you shortly. Stay encouraged and faithful.

God’s blessings are upon you always.

Still I Rise

by Maya Angelou

“Still I Rise”

from AND STILL I RISE by Maya Angelou,
copyright © 1978 by Maya Angelou.
Used by permission of Random House, Inc.

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Thank you always for your inspired and blessed walk in the growth of Warm Spirit, you will always be the truest “Warm Spirit” and for those of us who have just sat with you, share the same dream that a legacy would be created that our daughters and sons would be proud of.

I am honored to have been given the oppurtunity to be a part of this vision and ,not for you or Daniel, but for my legacywill this dream stay with me.

Nadine,

My heart goes out to you and your family. You were one of the reasons I decided to become a Warm Spirit Consultant in May of 2007. I truly believe that you are Warm Spirit. I am disheartened by all of this. I just wanted to let you know that if you start another company just let me know and I will be on board.

Hey Nadine,

I just came back from visiting my 83 year old parents. I want to say that I am very sorry to see you leave the company, but I know that you will be fine (or even better)!!! Things happen for a reason, and sometimes we go through hard and harder times before we see our way. Whatever your “way” is, I know it will be successful, and fulfilling.

I have told you many times, and I’ll tell you again, because of YOU (via WS) I am able to teach math to 7th graders. It was YOUR vision and hard work that lead to the success of this company, and I will always REMEMBER who started this company and who it was originally built for.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and I wish you well.

Please keep me on a mailing list and let me know what you are thinking about doing “post WS”. I would LOVE to continue to be a part of a community that is run by NADINE THOMPSON a strong, beautiful, powerful, faithful BLACK WOMAN.

My 83 year old mother was mad as HE** when she heard that you were no longer with the company. She said “I don’t know the details, but when a Black woman is forced out of a company she started, it is not right”. We did not go to bed until after midnight, and she was still fussing and muttering when we said goodnight. She did tell me to tell you to “stay up” and start again. I have attached a poem that I wrote a long time ago that helped me release much of my anger over my life. I hope it does not offend you, and I hope it inspires you.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Hi Nadine,

I am so sorry to hear about your separation from the company. You will always be the modern day woman with a vision that has allowed so many African-American Woman to break through the chains of bondage.
I am so greatful to have met you and to consider you a very special person that is very sincere about assisting others in gaining their full potential in life.
By being a Sista’ CEO I have paid off some credit card debt and started saving extra money for my future legacy (my children). I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the person who you are to have the vision to Empower Women to become more in life than just working a 9-5 job.
God Bless you and your family and I wish you well in your future endeavors.

Love,

We love you. You and your family remain in our prayers.
You have inspired us and we are forever thankful to you. I don’t know what the future has in store for WS but we know you gave birth to this organization. They say motherhood can be a thankless job…..we hope not. We all are so grateful to you. I don’t think that we can ever fully trust the leadershipat WS. But hopefully we can carve out some semblance of the vision you gave to us.

God Bless you,

My Sistah,

Regretably, I just read the email from you forwarded by Josi, my upline. I don’t know if you remember me, but in Richmond, when you came a few months ago, our ministry SisterCare, International gave you the huge Diamond in the box, to honor you as a leader par excellence. We still feel that way and we just want to encourage you that the best is yet to come. You are an awesome Woman of God, worthy to be involved with the Best at all times. I personally have been praying for you for years, because I truly see God in you and your vision and just know, God is the God of VISIONS, so if he gave you one, he will give you another. Prophecy that to yourself. I am with you in heart and spirit, I have always been more into encouraging sisters than products or candles, so if your next business venture is “green salt” I will still be in your corner, cheering you forward, till God gets the Glory out of your life over and over again. I am also the author of the “Woman, By Revelation Journal” that I gifted to you in Richmond, pick it some time in the days to come as you heal and know that God has “unfailing love for you eternally” and that you are and have always been “fearfully and wonderfully made”

Peace in ANY Valley,

Dear Nadine,

I cannot put into words how shocked and saddened I was to read your email today. I honestly don’t know what to say except I am so sorry. I just hope that you realize that you DID create an environment where women of color would be empowered. I know that this did not turn out the way you, or any of us, would have wanted but I want you to know that you have changed lives. Thousands of women have found renewed belief in themselves because of you. I hope in some small way as you go through this incredibly difficult time you will be comforted by knowing that without you so many of us would not be where we are.

I know and trust in a God that answers prayers and I know that as horrible as this is, there are some blessings beyond your understanding waiting for you. Just trust in Him and know that it is done.

With much love and respect,

Hi Nadine,

I am a Warm Spirit Consultant and was saddened to learn that you will no longer be with Warm Spirit. I joined Warm Spirit in February 2005 after reading about you in Ebony or Essence. The specific magazine escapes but my memory at this time but I was impressed and inspired after reading about you in that article and decided to become a Warm Spirit consultant.

I wish you well with your future endeavors and hope that you continue to be encouraged. I strongly believe that when man closes a door God opens another door which is usually better than the door that was closed.

May God Continue to Bless You,

Sincerely,

Dear Nadine,

Josi shared your news with our team leaders. I know that I speak for my team when I say that our hearts are so very hurt right now. It was your vision and your passion that connected with so many of us. I will never forget the first time I saw your face and read about your vision for this company. We love you and we want you to know that we will continue to be Warm Spirit. We will work this business in a way that will make you proud.

Please know that you and your family are in our hearts and in our prayers.

Nadine,

I met you for the first time back in May 2007 in Richmond, VA. I am a member of the Dreamcatchers Unit under the direction of Josi Hopkins.

I just received the communication and I want you to know that WE WILL NOT GIVE UP! WE WILL NOT GIVE IN!!!!

What the devil meant for bad, GOD MEANT IT FOR OUR GOOD.

I want you to know that my dreams will be lived through Warm Spirit. YOU ARE AND WILL ALWAYS BE THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OF WARM SPIRIT. I will rally my team to continue to do God’s bidding in showing Warm Spirit to the WORLD!!!

I know for you this is a loss beyond compare, but you have the support and strength of 30,000+ Consultants that will continue to work their business regardless of what others may say. Just know that here in RICHMOND, VA WE WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT LIKE NEVER BEFORE THRU INCREASED SALES, INCREASED BUSINESS PARTNERS, AND INCREASED MARKETS!!!!!

They tried to hold us back in slavery and we overcame GREAT OBSTACLES. MADAME CJ WALKER OVERCAME, AND WARM SPIRIT WILL OVERCOME!!!!!

YOU DO WHAT YOU GOT TO DO TO HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS AND WE WILL HANDLE OURS

WE ARE WARMSPIRIT!!!!!!!!!!

Know that God loves you and He has you in the palm of His hand. He is ultimately in control no matter what others say or do. He can handle this.
I love you and I want you to know that YOU are Warm Spirit.

Often in life, things happen that we don’t understand and to the world it would seem unfair. What is important to know is that God remains in charge and what the world would see or have as bad, God and only God can show us the good.

The message below is from Nadine. After you read it, please do not despair. We are still Warm Spirit. Leaders are replaced in corporate America and it has been our hope that we had found the answer through Nadine and her vision. We must still keep that vision and hope and persevere through this in her honor. We are Warm Spirit.

You know my love of Nadine brought me to Warm Spirit and my love of Nadine will keep me with Warm Spirit. I will work more fervently because of that love for her and her vision until God shows me the plan. And I know that there is a plan, that cannot be revealed right now. Trust God to reveal it at the appropriate time.

Continue to work your business like no body’s business and know that you are empowered to be the best you can be.

Let’s show the world and Daniel that Nadine’s vision lives!!

Nadine,

I have wanted to write since we heard the news. I never know quite what to so say. I want to start by saying Thank You for your “Dream” I miss your calm voice, and your energy on the calls. They were fun!! I always loved Monday night Empowerment calls and the 1st Monday of every month was always a treat.

I saw the Creator of “Her Game 2″ Apparel on Friday at Harlem Hospital and she mentioned she might see you next week when you are the city and I said to myself I must write.

I wish you all the best I am looking forward to hearing all about the New Dreams you are going to birth!!!!! Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Nadine,

I have really been thinking about you this past week, you have been on my heart. I can feel what is going on.

I turned on my computer tonight and the story that came up was the horse that won the Belmont Stakes – Rags to Riches – and it is a filly (girl).

Rags to Riches was not favored to win today, she even came out of the gate stumbling. But she was able to regain her composure and give the studs a run for their money – literally!

She wore her number proudly #7 – and became the third filly to take the Belmont since Tanya in 1905. Only 22 fillies have tried the Belmont, with Rags to Riches the first since Silverbulletday came in 7th in 1999.

The Belmont is the longest and most grueling , is a race that Kentucky Derby winning fillies Winning Colors and Genuine Risk could not win.

Needless to say Rags to Riches is now considered the undisputed queen of racing! She came out on top even though she was favored the underdog – noone thought she could pull a win off.

I am saying all of this Nadine because this story relates to you and Warm Spirit. From the start you have been looked upon as the underdog. Right now especially – Daniel is looking at you as the underdog.

But what Daniel doesn’t know is that THIS filly may have stumbled when she came out of the gate – when she gains her composure and comes around the lane to the stretch – her strength, brains and business know how will help her stretch her neck out just far enough to win this race! We are coming out of our gate #7 (7 years old – 2007) and we will be VICTORIOUS!!

It is your destiny Nadine – you have to stay the course and keep your belief strong! See there is a difference when you are doing GOD’s work! You have MILLIONS of others to touch with these products and this business opportunity, and the evil one is putting everything in your path to try and stop it. Including making XXXX act like a FOOL!

Just make sure that you have the BEST lawyer money can buy – and remember these things:

DON’T BACK DOWN!
DON’T GIVE UP!!!
STAND YOUR GROUND!!!

We are behind you, and there will NOT be a Warm Spirit without YOU!!!! I WILL see you in Orlando – all of this will be over by then, and YOU will be VICTORIOUS!! PICTURE IT – and you will attract it to you!

I love you Nadine! Now put your game face on – and let them see a side of you that you have never shown!

It ain’t personal – THIS IS BUSINESS!

Love ya!

Warmly,

Hi Nadine,

Hoping this e-mail finds you doing well. Sorry I’m just getting around to contacting you. I’ve been trying my best to juggle balancing my health challenges with returning to work 1 – 3 days a week along with everything else in my life. I praise God for how he continues to keep me especially in the mist of the storms because each storm I experience, strengthens me for the next one. God is so good!!! I trust that my prayers for you and your family are being manifested. I miss you a lot. It’s just not the same without you.I’m currently exploring some other business options. I will continue with Warm Spirit because I love the products but I’m looking for another stream of income ( I’m not trying to do this work thing permanently. My goal is that, work is extra icing on the cake, a vehicle for keeping my mind sharp and my nursing skills current.) I lost a lot with my stroke but thanks be to God he allowed me to make it through a grueling Nurse Refresher course and regain my nursing li cense. I’ve been thinking about jewelry but my only drawback is that I must be internally and intimately passionate about whatever I choose to do. I want to impact the lives of others vs selling items. To me there is a difference. I have looked at the Silpada Designs and also Tracie Lynn Jewelry. I’ve dismissed makeup after looking at some options in that industry. I am prayerful and trusting that God will continue to direct my path. Enough about me, how’s the family? I was so glad to hear Josie’s decision and just know in my heart that the Lord has everything under his control. I trust that you continue to heal on all levels, as well. You have always been beautiful to me, so I trust that you are truly believing that now. God made you perfect just as you are. I would really like to stay in touch so I hope you don’t mind getting an occasional e-mail from me. I guess I need to let you go. I’m supposed to be resting because I’ve been in bed sick since Sunday but today I feel a healing coming on thanks be to God! You take care and let’s stay in touch!

Hello Lady Nadine,

I’m a consultant from Indianapolis, In, and I have had the pleasure of meeting you once. I wanted you to know how much I miss hearing your voice on the Monday night calls. Not having you in the Warm Spirit family any longer is very difficult for me. In the past when I would speak about the company the first thing out of my mouth was, “You have the opportunity to speak with our president and co-founder Nadine Thompson, now what company lets you speak with it’s president.” I find it very difficult to continue in this company because I no longer feel the warm spirit. The letters from (MITCH) your replacement, are so dry and sterile. I have heard rumors about what happened, and I was raised to believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. My womanly instinct tells me, that you were totally wronged behind your back. For why would you leave something that you have put so much time and sacrifice into. Why would a mother abandon her child. Nadine I don’t write this to you to bring your spirits down. I just want you to know that your Warm Spirit daughters and sons are thinking of you, praying for you and your family and waiting for God to bless you with double your loss. As the story of Job tells how Satan struck him with sever illness, the loss of his children, and impoverishment. Job still remained faithful to the Lord. Thus the Lord blessed him with double his loss. Knowing that you are a woman of God, I know it was your faith that lead you aid in Empowering Woman changing the lives of many and for that your blessings will be bountiful. So get ready.

Love your Warm Spirit Daughter
