Want Results? Focus On Habits, Not On Finding Motivation

“Results have very little to do with goals and nearly everything to do with systems.” James Clear Holy moly this is the truth… Having goals isn’t enough. Having knowledge isn’t enough. Having motivation isn’t enough. You can have all those things, but without taking consistent action, you won’t see results. I was talking with one of…

2019 Focus Word: Faithful

At the end of each year/beginning of the new year for the last several years, I have decided upon a focus word or theme for the new year. It serves as something to anchor myself to given the things that are currently going on in my life and faith journey. To be honest, I considered…

Thoughts on Sharing Your Story

  I love this quote. Brené Brown is the master of all things #RadicalResponsibility. It did get me thinking though… (Are you surprised? 🤣) Owning our full experience and sharing our full story is not merely about our own healing, it is also about helping others walk through their own similar journeys. With the Lord’s help, we…
