Keto Mom Here!

       "If we are going to seize divine moments, we must accept the reality that we have no control over many things. We have no control over when we die, and how we die. We must instead take responsibility for what we do have control over, and that is how we choose to live. If we had waited for everything to fall into place before we initiated, we would have never gone". ~Erwin McManus

If you don't have the book, and you're just tuning in, I hope you're enjoying the live videos.

Welcome to Day 7 of our Book 8 session
I hope you're taking something out of it, to be able to help you with your own mindset or your journey. My hope is to help you just be better, whatever your better is, and whatever it is that you're looking for... So chapter three is called "Uncertainty"... He tells a ton of stories, and he basically just talks about, "You don't know, what you don't know".

There's a lot of uncertainty in our life. I think we all could agree that we don't know what's going to happen today. We don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. Sometimes people don't start a journey because they don't know the outcome. They easily get frustrated if they don't see the results they're wanting, in a specific time. It's just uncertainty, how people have lack of faith, and not wanting to put the consistent hard work into it. So he talked a lot about taking hold of moments, making choices, and having faith. The book is great and he said,
