Let’s Find Common Ground

“I like to see myself as a bridge builder,
that is me building bridges
between people, between races, between cultures, between politics,
trying to find common ground.”

Even If You Don’t Like Them

“Don’t let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things.
Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly,
be kind to others, even if you don’t like them.”

Stylist/Fashion Consultant, Author & Magazine Editor

Tense Muscles, Headaches & Sore Jaws

“Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you
tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth.
Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.”

Intellectually Made

“When you make a decision to forgive, it’s a decision that you have to make intellectually.”

It Liberates Us!

“I think the first step is to understand that forgiveness does not exonerate the perpetrator.
Forgiveness liberates the victim. It’s a gift you give yourself.”

You, Him & Everyone Else

“80% of people’s problems are about how they feel about themselves.”

“Stop being tormented by everyone else’s reaction to you.”

“Today, Lord, I am going to do my best with Your help and for Your glory.
I realize that there are many different people in the world with a variety of opinions and expectations.
I will concentrate on being a God-pleaser and not a self-pleaser or man-pleaser.
The rest I leave in Your hands, Lord. Grant me favor with You and with men
and continue transforming me into the image of Your dear Son. Thank You Lord.”

~ Joyce Meyer,
Author, Speaker
