It's hardly believable, but another school year is coming to an end. Your children have grown immensely and in so many ways, they are not the same people they were when the year began. Sure, the end of school can be a whirlwind time with things to plan, line up and anticipate for summer, but it can also be emotional to say goodbye to one season of life as you enter a new one. Parents, this year was not only an accomplishment for your children, but for you as well. Together, you've come so far and, praise God, you made it. And, as much as there are many things to look forward to, there is so much to reflect on and give thanks for.

Talents, we all have them. Do you know what your strengths are? What are the “WHYs" in your life? The WHY in your life gives you purpose, they keep you focused on what brings you true joy. When you lose your WHY, you often lose your way. So back to the question: have you taken the time to discover your purpose, your WHY? It is important to realize that the enemy (the devil) wants to distract us from reaching our potential. So let’s have some fun today and get you thinking more about your purpose. Why? Because God designed you to serve others and to use those gifts and abilities to honor Him. I often find that the best answers can be found in simple questions.
