  • “We should make plans, counting on God to direct us.” Proverbs 16:9

    If you want to change your life for the better, take these steps:

    1) Discern what success really is. When others feel good about you, you’re popular. When you feel good about yourself, you’re successful. Your life’s highest calling always will create the highest level of joy within you. That doesn’t mean it’ll be easy or pain free. Every winner in history paid a price, you will too.
