This Week On Purpose!

Welcome to August Purposeful Family!

As promised I want to stay connected during this spiritual break. For those who follow Our Given Purpose® on social media you have seen the ‘Phenomenal Woman Photo Series’. What began as a small project is becoming so much more. I am grateful to the amazing women who have allowed me to take them out of their comfort zones. I didn’t realize that I too was being stretched. Our God is awesome! He is finding ways to teach me to be more loving, understanding, and appreciative. 

I hope you will all take a few moments to view and connect with these phenomenal women. 



Let’s Journal!

Can you see past the exterior?

That is the question I received in one of my studies and I had to think about it. I judged people by what they wore, how they spoke, and even who their friends were. I didn’t realize how bad it was. I am so grateful to God for opening my eyes and leading me on a path of discovery. 

What we acknowledge about ourselves becomes even more evident in others. We see the ugly, mean spirited, downright malicious ways we can treat others over insignificant things. (All it takes is a moment to treat someone with kindness rather than disdain.)

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Have I judged someone this week?
  2. Am I more tolerant of some things and not others?
  3. Is there someone I should apologize to?

We are better together! Let’s pray for one another and keep harvesting.
