Inspiration for YOU!

My personal life’s mission is to “Love, lead and inspire with integrity and authenticity, to the glory of God!”  

To me, my life has been blessed beyond any quantifiable unit of measure that exists in the world.  My faith in God and my love for embracing the positive things in life, seeing the good in others and always striving to be better today than I was yesterday, has sustained me.  These are some of my favorite quotes.  I hope they will inspire you as much as they inspire me.  Come back often, I will be constantly adding to the list.  –Angelia
