09 Jun Wisdom Nuggets!
I love one-liners, motto’s, and other life and leadership nuggets that I can write on my oversized sticky notepad and put on my office walls.
Right now, from my office chair, my walls surround me with life-giving scriptures, quotes, prayers, and one-liners. Reading these words daily, ignites my faith, and helps me to focus on the truth, and what is good and pure.
Let me share with you some of my favorites and maybe they will strengthen you too.

These are just a few notes scribbled in the margins of His message. I would encourage you to read the Bible and listen for His voice as you sit and soak in His Word.
Accept what God has done FOR you, then let Him work IN you, so He can work THROUGH you.
