Be On Purpose

I have a leadership devotional {by John Maxwell} that I am almost finished with.
(If you have one that you are thrilled with, please pass the suggestion along)

Today’s entry was great...
and I know that many of my co-workers and blog readers will appreciate this.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

"Nothing in life can take the place of knowing your purpose. If you don't try to discover your purpose, you're likely to spend your life doing the wrong things. I believe that God created every person for a purpose. Our responsibility - and our joy - is to identify it.


Here are some questions to ask yourself to help you identify your purpose:


For what am i searching? All of us have a strong desire set in our hearts, something that speaks to our deepest thoughts and feelings, something that sets out souls on fire.


Why was I created? Think about the unique mix of abilities you have, the resources available to you, your won personal history, and the opportunities around you.


Do I believe in my potential? No one can consistently set in a manner inconsistent with the way he sees himself."

I go on spurts of "purposeful living" where I am very aware of the decisions I am making... I needed this today. And I am so thankful for the direction and purpose in my life.

Muffin-Top Monday! {Week 5}

I haven’t posted "Muffin-Top Monday" in about 3 weeks...but, that doesn’t mean that I am not working hard at shedding the lbs. I'm down about 7lbs... and need to loose about 8 more to be where I want to be by May 1st. I'll update again in a few weeks!


Also, I have been working on some super cute inspiration crafts that I can't wait to share, and a baby gift. :)



p.s. I love V-8. I finally got the balls courage to try the "spicy" formula. Yum yum! :)
