Your family, organization (whether self-employed or otherwise) and the society always have need for you.

It is based on some characters in Scriptures that rose above their circumstances and the true life experiences of two women who shared their breakthrough stories with me. I hope this encourages you to live to your full potential in all aspects of your life. Please do enjoy it! A college student once told me her penultimate semester result was very poor on the one hand But God told her it was good on the other hand She said, "I read so hard and prayed so hard For my final papers That when I checked in with the course adviser At the end of the semester The course adviser asked me: 'Where have you been And what is it about you That during the senate meeting Everyone insisted your result be upgraded' "?
