Check it Out – I Declare

I am on a constant search for sources of empowerment for not only myself but others. I recently purchased Joel Osteen’s I Declare book and it has been an awesome read. In the book Osteen has included 31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life. I read one every morning as I am preparing for my day and what an awesome source of empowerment!

Both offer great quality merchandise, amazing designs, and are relatively inexpensive.

Happy Shopping,
