    Setting Your Intention

    I’ve been preparing for next week’s Texas Conference for Women in Houston, and came across a Barbara Jordan quote. She’s from Houston, and said that all of her growth and development led her to believe that “if you really do the right thing and if you play by the rules and if you’ve got good, solid judgment and common sense - that you’re going to be able to do whatever it is that you want to do with your life.” She clearly believed that there are things about ourselves and our world that each of us know to be true. If we dig deep and connect with those God-given abilities, gifts and convictions, we can set a very intentional course for our lives. Oh and by the way, this also just happens to be the theme of next week’s Conference!
