Be one who speaks with authority.
Speaking with authority is different from being authoritarian. Authoritarian leadership is all about manipulation and control. Do as I say or else kind of leadership. Authoritative leadership is about respect, honor and a rock solid guidance that builds confidence and a sense of security.

This very minute I’m at a leadership conference in the greater Dallas area.
I’ve been involved with a business of nutrition for more than twenty years now. It has blessed my life in countless ways. Countless ways.
I have deep conviction in my heart that my God used what I have learned through the leadership training, the products and the people—well… it is of invaluable worth. I also love the culture. So many wonderfully successful people who just simply love and care about others. And that is exactly what made them prosper.

Esther, Ruth, Mary the mother of Jesus, three women who I imagine knew how to keep it classy as they loved beyond their capacity
You are a Winner!
Champion does not mean first place-first prize.
A Champion is an ardent defender of purpose and people. God is your defender. He is ardent, unwavering, in his devotion to humanity. You count on him to do what only he can do and he will do it for you. You can trust him! Many times we SAY we trust him, but then we continue to take care of everything ourself. We believe he will bless our effort and that’s the extent of our trust. But what about trust that
This is a portion of a text I received yesterday from a woman who is in her own zone, breaking the mold, exploring and realizing her own potential as she helps others. She is finding her purpose through service. The serving of others. But not just any service, the service God is calling her to do. God has something unique for each of us to do.
When your heart and soul are edified you come alive. You know in your heart what to do, what you are meant to do. It’s
