Well, it is almost here! The big day! Jesus’ Day! For you purists, yes, we know that Jesus was not born on Dec. 25th but we can still celebrate the gift of Christ’s birth.

Not one of us was born without a gift to give the world. What is your gift? What gift will you share with world during this time?

Lately I have been reading a lot about purpose. My heart’s desire is to live each day fulfilling my creator’s purpose for my life — living the life I was specifically designed for. We all have this life we plan to live and if you are a planner like I am, you mapped it outContinue reading “Purpose Not Preference”
