Learning How to Lose

“Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose.
Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.”

Her Greatest Beauty Secret

“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself.
I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything.
It’s a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself.
I believe that a lot of how you look
is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life.
Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.”
~ Tina Turner,
Recording Artist, Dancer, Actress & Author,

Sacred Secrets That Shame

“You are not alone if you have sacred secrets that shame you
from participating in the great things God has planned for you,
… it is time for you to confess to God the truth of your secret
so that He can free you from your past.”
