This Year Let’s Have Patience

Posted on Wednesday, January 2, 2013 in Emotional, How To, Relational, Social, Spiritual, Values

This year is a new year.

More Than A Bucket List by Toni Birdsong

“More Than a Bucket List will challenge you to go for that hole-in-one at Pebble Beach, to become an amateur chef, to scale K2. But it will also encourage you to view these accomplishments from God’s point of view and to make your bucket list matter eternally along the way. With each page, the dream inside you will be drawn out—the higher dream of what God has purposed for you.”

The author challenges her readers to choose positive values:
Pursue laughter.
Live your dreams.
Honor the strength of others.
Fight for love.
Be a Good Samaritan.
Become a more positive person.
