3.   The Holy Spirit Guide by David Raets
    It is hard to argue the fact that no matter what the point of debate, whenever any subject regarding religion is approached there is a real tendency for argument. Bear with me because there is a very real correlation to the subject of this text with the way we raise to the defense of our beliefs. These arguments are not simply against non-believers, or those who do not share our particular faith... these arguments can spring up between the closest of those sharing the same faith. Any point of faith is an extremely personal emotional trigger that has as much of a defense in our core as the need to protect our family and home.

17.   Your Divine Soul Purpose -- Manifesting Your True Life's Mission by Mashubi Rochell
    When we begin to awaken spiritually, we ask 'why am I here?', and 'for what purpose did God create me?' For some, an inner understanding of divine soul purpose emerges relatively early in the spiritual journey. For others, knowledge of soul purpose eludes our human embodied self for quite a long time, necessitating a period of 'walking in the desert' with little apparent support. God created you so carefully, and uniquely for the sacred purpose you embody.

    All people have experienced childhood hurts, albeit some more than others. None-the-less, we have all had them. Whether it is a lack of children's developmental skills, a lack of adults recognizing the need to help them, or both - childhood hurts do not go away on their own. We can stifle those wounds at times, accuse and try to convince the perpetrator of their error, exhaust ourselves emotionally, cry a spell and think it's better now, etc. But, it isn't.

    In this day and time, it almost seems as if kindness, politeness, consideration, and most of the lessons we were taught as children were tossed out of the window one day and replaced with a new set of rules. Could it simply be that children these days are born with a defect, lacking self-control? Or are they just not being taught the way they should be taught; parents blaming modern day hardships and circumstances? It is true that the children being raised today will determine the shape of our future, but in the meantime, whose example are they following?

62.   Financial Freedom by Joyce C. Lock
    Having been raised/programmed with all the principals of a virtuous woman, Granny also lived in our home (a survivor of the Great Depression). Additionally, with four siblings, eight to nine people lived in our house at any given time. Parents being in mission work, we were also the 'home away from home' for uncounted numbers of leaders and missionaries.

Then, we just might get a glimpse into the fact that, if we can breath at all, we are a miracle, too.

101.   Choosing the Baptismal Garments by Helen Marakis
    The baptism is one of the most important days in the life of a newborn child; it is your son or daughter's introduction into the Christian fellowship as well as a way of thanking the Lord for the abundant blessing of a new child. Since the parents need to take much into consideration for this ceremony--such as the organizing the invitations, preparing the food and arranging the decor it will prove helpful to involve the godparents in the selection of the baptismal garments. Not only will it remove a bit of stress from the parents' shoulders, it will also be a way of ushering in the spiritual connection which will be shared between godparent and child.

    INSPIRATION can be a powerful thing. It can keep you going when all around you cries out "quit!" It is even more powerful than motivation. Motivation gives you your basic reasons to keep going.

I posit three elements: purpose, vision and mission.
