What's Your Word? 2018

Do you have a word that you hope captures your life for 2018? It's not too late to grab one up. Pray and see what word might be your word for the New Year.

I did a deep dive on my word. It's a Greek word used 16 times in the N.T. The passages are absolutely awesome. So here's a look at what God is doing in my heart and I trust that God will make these things the character of my life. Go find yourself a word or use mine – WIN! Blessings in 2018!

Core Values - Key Competencies

As we head toward a New Year...we have a golden opportunity to align or realign our lives with God. God is constantly inviting us to risk the pain of life change and wait for his reward. 

I've been pouring over the scriptures for a number of years and have landed on several core values for my life. There might be more but if I can get these solidified in my life, I find that I'm on solid ground. I have also discovered that there a some key competencies that I need to allow God to grow in me. 

You might land on more values and could expand on my list of competencies but I offer these to you for your consideration. We're heading into a New Year, let's make it the finest year ever!

By the way, I have a new book that I'm releasing in a couple days. I hope it encourages you in a big way! 

Blessings,

Karl
