My Mission Statement

Found this version of my mission statement taped in one of my shelves today:


I don’t know where I heard it but I wrote it down on a sticky note on my desk. It is a quote from Michelangelo and it means “I am still learning”. That is the basis of my life. I always say that a day where I don’t learn something is a day wasted. So what are you doing today? How will it help you learn something? What can you use it for?

Bringing my Faith into Work

I’m really searching for where I need to be, where He wants me to be. I came across this in my search I keep finding instruction and guidance on faith as I consider new careers.
