My Mission Statement In Life

My mission statement in life is quite simple but very personal and powerful for me.

For the glory of God and by His power I WILL: LIVE fully, LOVE sacrificially, LEARN continually, LEAD wisely, LAUGH frequently!

LIVE Fully: Carpe Diem! Seize the Day! Make every day count and maximize the opportunities of every day. Here's one of my quotes I made up to live by: "Of the senses God gave me five, use them all to be fully alive!"

LOVE Sacrificially: You can live for self or others. God calls us to follow the example of Jesus and lay down our lives for others. I seek to live by my quote that is on every email I send: "The greatest privilege of living is authentically loving others."

LEARN Continually: Life gets richer the more that you learn. You can pursue entertainment or education in life. You can learn from people, places, experiences, books, etc. My quest is to stay young by learning for all of life.

LEAD Wisely: I am a servant leader who seeks wisdom in influencing those who look to be for leadership. I am a footwasher. I am a door opener. I seek to bless my family, my friends, my church, my conference, the body of Christ, through my life.

LAUGH Frequently: I love to play. Our family motto is "Pray hard, work hard, play hard". "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy"my momma used to say. Laughing with family & friends is gift from God to be enjoyed as an act of worship.
