Verses, Declarations + Prayers for Business
My brother Nick is the man. He is a handsomer, more tan version of myself...and he can play the guitar, what a show-off? 😂
And normally this is where I would make a joke about how, "At least I have better hair"... but I can't because he's got great hair too! Nick you are amazing but that's not the point of this post! 😂 Okay, one more thing - here is a photo of us as little league super stars. Note - I had to wear an adult size hat because my head was too big for the kid ones...
Nick is also one of those guys who is really good at reading the bible, you know what I mean? Like, knowledgeable and stuff? I read a verse and am like, "This verse is good." Nick is like, "The original Greek means this and in Hebrew it means this and Jesus said something similar here and Moses said something about it here and don't forget about Isaiah referencing it here..."
To which, I usually reply....
Because of that, I know that he is always going to have some great insight on things going on in my life. Recently, I was sharing some struggles that come with running a business and he sent me an awesome e-mail filled with encouragement that I thought I would share with you, since I know there are a lot of entrepreneurs in the walk in love. community!
