What’s New At Create With Joy?

Women Of Faith Movie

WOF with Dates

This week I had the opportunity to attend a
Special showing of Women Of Faith – An Amazing Journey ,
Which is playing on a few dates in select cities across the US.

If you have the opportunity to see this movie,
I strongly encourage you to go!

The movie tells the history of Women Of Faith –
Relives many of the best moments from 20 years of the conferences –
Includes exclusive interviews and stories.

This is truly a life-changing film!

Your New Money Mindset

Your New Money Mindset

As we prepare our taxes over the course of the next several weeks,
Money and finances are on the forefront of many of our minds.

Do you have a healthy attitude towards money?
That’s the question Your New Money Mindset helps you explore!

You’ll learn the various ways people relate to money –
Take an online assessment to discover your Money Mindset –
And learn how the value you place on money aligns with the values in your heart.

For more information, see my book review.

Inspire Me Monday #216 – Week Of February 21, 2016

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    We had just a little bit of spring here this weekend–a crocus bloomed! So I’ve shared some spring-inspired feline artwork, and a very special poem and memory about the wisdom found in the woods during the spring thaw.
