The Other Side of Your Yes

The Other Side of Your Yes

Originally written for Speak Up Conference Blog. I was reading online the other day that there are over ONE MILLION books published every year. I know this number shouldn’t surprise me, but it does.  It always amazes me when I walk into the bookstore and see rows and rows of shelves jam-packed with books.

In the book of Proverbs we read, “Where there is no vision, the people  perish.” (Proverbs 29:18 KJV) In other words, if you do not have a vision for your life, your ministry, or your future, you are dying inside. I take a few minutes almost daily in my “Imagination Station,” which is a couch that I can sit by myself (and hubby knows not to talk to me!) I sit, think and write down everything that comes to mind. Earlier this year, while I was sitting in my Imagination Station, I heard, “Help writers and speakers.” After that day, the most
