“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
Look at the sunny side of everything and make your
optimism come true.
Think only of the best,
work only for the best,
and expect only the best.
Forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
Give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that
the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true
to the best that is in you!”
– Christian D. Larson

What is your favorite book and why?
Becoming a Woman of Worth Devotional. Because it is very encouraging, it is a good daily read and it provides bible verses for each devotional.

I think the fact that each season is different. So we tend change our style and what we do to relax and enjoy.
