At “lucky” UBC post #13 is the topic of who inspires me most. When my Dad was alive, he certainly did, with his faith in God and his example of how to live one’s life fully committed to God and family.
For many years now, though, I have drawn inspiration and motivation from Joyce Meyer, whom I’ve mentioned numerous times before. To repeat briefly from my most recent post, Joyce is a Bible teacher and motivational speaker with an international ministry, as well as a published author and NY Times Bestseller with over 70 books. In spite of her success and popularity, she remains amazingly practical, down-to-earth, and often very funny.
Consider this book title from my most recent purchase among her numerous books:
Note the subtitle: Giving Yourself Permission to Lighten Up!
As Joyce says, sometimes we get so serious about the Christian life, we forget to relax and ENJOY it!
Not only do I receive inspiration through Joyce’s teachings to live my life victoriously as a Christian, but I also admire her as a published author multiple times over. As a writer and aspiring author myself, I feel motivated and inspired by her success. Whether or not I ever hit 70+ books or not, God only knows – but I’ll start with one and see how it goes!
