Girlfriendit is a Leadership Development Movement for Women. Rallying You To Remarkable!
"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." ~Matthew 6:33 What do you put first in your life? God says to put first things first and to seek Him first! Sounds so simple doesn’t it? Yet it’s so easy to seek our closest Starbucks and our best girlfriend first. Or maybe it’s our “To-Do List”, or maybe we even grab hold of our worries and anxieties first. What do you tend to choose first? What and who we choose to put first in our life is significant. It is so easy to numbly go through life as it everything is fine, all the while, we’re searching for something or someone who will validate our feelings and give us our worth. This week Patty and Lisa are talking about First Things First with special guest, Barbara Willis. Their conversation will go below the surface and explore such questions as:
- Is it okay to not be okay?
- In the midst of tragedy and loss, how can I find my way back home?
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.” ~ George R.R. Martin “You're never alone when you're reading a book.” ~ Susan Wiggs Do you have a Summer Reading Plan? Summer is a great time to find yourself a relaxing, reclusive spot, either basking in the sun on a beach chair or in the shade of a tree in the mountains (we can dream!) – with your favorite beverage, comfy attire, and a good book! Even a lawn chair in your backyard on a nice day works! Summer is the best time for reading, allowing you to get lost in your imagination and thoughts and taking you on a journey with the characters to lands far away, or places of the heart where emotions run deep. Here’s how we usually categorize our book lists:
- Books we want to read
- Books we should read (recommended for our benefit)
- Books we mean to read but there are others screaming louder for our attention
- Books we want to reread
- Books we have set aside for summer reading (for fun and adventure)
Can we "sell" faith? What does this mean? What does this look like? How effective are you at selling?
