Are you ready for an AMAZING October?

It's almost October which means we’re entering the last quarter of the year. Are you ready for an AMAZING October?

But, perhaps there are things coming against you trying to distract you from fulfilling all that God has for you? It might be the criticism of someone, doubts, fears, worries, negative thoughts, etc. I don't know what it is, but YOU do. You're feeling it and perhaps you'd rather just quit. Oh friend, I know that feeling. In fact, in my recent blog, I gave you 7 Things to Help You Survive the Hard Days. Today, I want to take it a step further and specifically talk about your WHY. Your WHY is what drives you to do what you do. And, it's what keeps you motivated and working toward your goal on those really hard days, those … [Read more...]
