Hey everybody! I hope you are all looking forward to the start of a new week. I know that I am. After completing a bible study this past week with my FCA group, God spoke to me and allowed me to plan ahead for this weeks update. I don't think I am the only one that struggles with being a leader. I believe that everyone at some point in their life have went the "easy" way and just followed along in someone else footsteps. Well, for me this occurs more often than I would like, so as we prepare to enter and new week. My main focus is going to be leading others and helping them see the leadership qualities God has blessed me with. For me personally, one of the main reasons I don't take lead in certain situations is because I "forget" or don't know how to lead. However, all we have needed to do all along is read the instruction book of life; the Bible. Jesus shows us and directs us in how to become a successful leader. In order to have complete, God driven leadership we must follow these four pointers: Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. If we bring our entire heart, our powerful minds, our passionate souls, and our never ending strength to the table, we present our best selves. But if we lack any one of these things, we are not bringing forth our most qualified self. Which will lead to a incomplete and lacking leadership.
Now I am not saying that if you have all these things that you will be a perfect leader because everyone as human beings have somewhere they need to grow and become more mature however, the more engaged and the more time you spend inspecting and growing these qualities, the better of a leader you will become. God calls us to be leaders in all of the places and people we come in contact with. School, work, home all of these places are perfect mission fields. So, I challenge you this week to really obey and follow Mark 12 verse 30 and 31. "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'There is no other commandments greater than these. I pray that you all accept this challenge and really run with it. We will check in live next Sunday and see of everyone completed this and in what ways they did so. Have a great week and remember to spread the work about BBB. Love you all!!!!

Good morning everyone! I pray that you all have had a wonderful last few weeks and have been awaiting this weeks update. I have been trying to gather my thoughts all week on what to write about and it wasn't until I went to FCA this Friday that God spoke to me and made it known of what I should write. I want to start today by asking you a question. How often in your school do you think you come across students/teachers/administrators that are lost and do not have a lifelong relationship with the Lord? I was sitting in the bleachers trying to imagine how many people I miss the chance to share the gospel with at school. As students our campus is the biggest mission field we come in contact with. Now this doesn't mean you should walk into school everyday with your hands raised high and shouting out to God. However, it does mean that we should take advantage of all the interaction we endure while at school. It may just be asking someone to pray with you, or inviting them to church, sending them a B3 Box, small acts of kindness like these show the light God has given you and I promise lost people realize something different about you. So, as you prepare to go back to school tomorrow, keep in mind the people you can be an example too.
I love you all so much and can't wait to see what a difference you make in someones life. Stay strong and keep being you. Fill out those forms for boxes and also I have lowered T-Shirt prices to $12 for all of my remaining sizes. Email or message me if interested.
