Significance & Purpose

Your Gifts are not about you, Your Leadership is not about you, Your Purpose is not about you.
A life of significance is about serving those who need your gifts, your leadership and your purpose."
-K Hall

Do you give freely of your talents and your time, or do you sit on the sidelines? Or do you only share your talents with those who can help you in return? To be significant and relevant, share your talents and grace with all those you can- especially those you find challenging (they probably need it most) . -Amy
