Living the Empowered Life in February!
In February we focus on the empowered living quality of FAITH!  

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.     

 

"...if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there', and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20 NRSV
