Are you living wholly, fully, abundantly, and intentionally? That is our question. It’s a big one, with high standards, and wide borders. And it’s important since this is the only life we’ve got. In the last two posts, we’ve looked at whole, full, abundant, and intentional living in two big areas: personal growth and relationships. Today we will look at work.

How’d you score on last week’s Personal Growth quiz? Take it here, if you haven’t already. To be honest, most of us don’t score very high.

"I’ll have what she’s having…” Spend 5 minutes with Dale and you’ll want what she has.
Dale’s own courageous faith journey has taken her beyond the pride of good-girl behavior, unhealthy emotional patterns and difficult family dynamics. The result? She ‘gets’ it, and connects with women through vulnerability and humor. And without all the pretense, she goes to the core of what women really feel. No pretty packaging. No performing.

Free to live in the unconditional love that has been theirs all along.
