Your Purpose Starts Small

I began this journey of podcasting and videocasting talking about purpose and our journey. I talked about knowing our true identity.

The last couple of video blogs talked more about obedience so it seemed that I had gotten off track with purpose, but I haven’t. Today this video blog will tie it together.

I hope you are enjoying these videos. Please let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

What is True Obedience

This video blog is really a continuation of yesterday’s video. I had this still on my heart but felt it best to divide up into two separate blogs.

I touched yesterday on decision making and purpose. They really are connected and we can’t follow or find our purpose without proper decision making.

Also yesterday, I talked about humility and that was the beginning of the ability to make right decisions. But humility isn’t a once and one kind of thing.

Today in this video blog I talk about true obedience and how to achieve it.

Finding Purpose

Hello! I’ve created another video blog today and want to share it.

I talked the other day about the difficulty we have in finding purpose and in decision making. We are on a journey and we want our journey to be fruitful and have purpose but so often that is very challenging to do.

In this video today I share what I believe is the very first step to determining our purpose and how to make good decisions.
