Leadership 101- Nehemiah Style: Someone to Uphold You in 2017

Isn’t it interesting how one part of your life can be going so well- i.e. jobs, success, health, finances, free time BUT another part can be struggling or almost nonexistent- i.e. your relationships, your marriage, or your relationship with your kids?

With Nehemiah as our model, we'll see one practical life application from Scripture that we can use so that we don’t lose our joy, faith and hope in the midst of having one part of your life going well and another part that may not be going so well.

All About the Process

One thing I realized about God is that He’s all about process. More often than not, God, thousands of years ago, and God in 2016 is a God of process.
