I no longer live but Christ lives in me - my life increasingly reflects the character of Christ through the Spirit's power.
I am daily learning to obey everything Christ commanded in his Word.
I delight in the presence of the Father as I daily converse with him about the things that matter most in my life.
I have a joyful, hopeful, grateful approach to life.

THE CONNECTED LIFE
"Better Together"

I am building healthy, vulnerable, deep human relationships that span generational, social and racial boundaries.
My heart, hands and home are always open to others.
I pray for others and have others who pray for me.
The Body of Christ is indispensable to me to become who God wants me to be.
I am building into others' lives as others build into mine.
