“’When you turn to the right or when you turn to the left, your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.’” Isaiah 30:21
Grounded in God, how can we boldly reveal ourselves as women of faith? As individuals, how are we committed to living into our faith? How can we create our own purpose statement?
A personal purpose statement helps us make decisions and boldly step forward in faith. It brings and binds what is true for our lives and cuts away what is inauthentic. Once created, we can come back to our personal purpose statement daily, praying it into our lives and living it out. How we see ourselves is clearly and plainly reflected in everything we say or do—where we work, play, go to school, or go to church; with our families and friends; and how we serve our communities. It affects who we are and who we will become.
