“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me in Christ Jesus.’’ (Philippians 3:14)


Ever felt like quitting? Throwing in the towel? Felt disqualified? What if I have no motivation to start? Where have I stopped running? Where do you need sustainability? Pick one area of your life that needs a kick-start…
