Need some encouragement to persevere when the journey gets tough? You’ve come to the right place.
The struggle is real, but it's important to keep on striving for your dreams. When I feel like my initiative is wavering, I open some files that I know will feed my soul and fuel my passion. Over the years, I’ve kept documents of encouraging words and scripture verses. I'm delighted to share some with you.
I hope these snippets stir your enthusiasm:
