Today, I am starting a series that I will do weekly, about things I know for sure. This weeks installment is called God sized.

One thing I know as … Continue reading Things I know for sure (part 1)……God size
Recently the quote for Tony Robbins has been reverberating through my heart and mind. “"Life is not happening to you, it's happening for you." I have realized that too much of the time, I take a passive stance with life. I have let others decide the form my life takes.

How is your relationship with Life? That may seem like a strange question, but if you stick with me, I think you will see where I am going with this.

First I want to say, He died but now is alive for us! He died that we might live, and was raised that we may live! Who for? For Everyone!
