3 Steps to Choosing Your Word for the Year

2020 is almost here, a new year and a new decade.  It is a time of anticipation and excitement for everything new that God is doing and has planned.  Several years ago, I started the practice of choosing a Word of the Year.   What is a Word for the Year?  It is one word that helps focus your thinking, unify your goals and keep them in front of you.  A theme for the year, a word that you go back to for every decision, and every situation.  One word that sums up who you want to be or how you...

She always had something for us...

6 Keys to Becoming Courageous

  I recently participated in a goal setting challenge to make 2020 the best year ever in your business.

I love all these things, but too many times in my life, they don't go beyond this stage. So I started asking why.  Why do I set these goals and make these plans but don't act on them?

What Family Favorites do you Serve with your Turkey?

  Happy almost Thanksgiving! With Thanksgiving Day just a few weeks away, it's time to settle on that menu. Will you serve turkey or ham? Both? Something else? Once that question is answered, it's on to appetizers, side dishes, and desserts. And who is bringing what?   Every family seems to have some "must-haves" dishes.
