Commit to Making Your Business a Success By Showing Up Each Business Day

It is thrilling to commit to making your business a success by showing up to work each business day.

Create a Miracle Journal

All over my house today I have little sticky notes that look like this: I'm doing all I can to be more aware of the Lord's presence in my every day activities.  I've got to do something because it doesn't come naturally to me.  I need to practice and be more mindful of the Spirit.  These little notes remind me to stop what I'm doing or thinking, listen for His voice, and pray in and for all things.  ...more
