“Have a Mission Statement”

By | Past Events

Karen had a great time teaching 16 women at THE WELL Zoom bible study on Friday, July 17th entitled, DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE: Identify your personal mission and calling.

She taught how to find their own personal mission statement that they believe God has put them on this earth to live out and then live it out as the reason or purpose for their life.  Karen says, “You can start to discover your purpose by either defining what you are passionate about and want to spend all your time doing or thinking about, or by what makes you particularly angry and you’re driven to do something to change it.  And once you find your purpose, you can soar!”
