What is your vision? What are your priorities? What are your goals?

My Love Inspired Vision

• I alone am responsible for my relationship with God
• I alone am responsible for who I am. I have to provide myself with intellectual and spiritual stimulation to become all that the Lord designed me to be
• I alone can be Roy’s wife. I am the only one who can love and care for him as his wife
• I alone can be Eveline, Summer, Amy and RK’s mother. Other people will influence their lives but only I can give them a mother’s love and care
• I alone can manage my household. My husband may help me but I am ultimately responsible.
