Expansion – My One Word for 2020 – Part I

I don’t have a “one word” every year but on the years that I do they seem to just show up. I don’t go through some exercise to think one up. They could be seeds planted by the Holy Spirit or they could be my imagination. What I do know is when they do show […]

Effective – My One Word for 2018
