You Are Who You Hang Out With, So Choose Carefully

Most people reading this have probably heard that at some point in their lives. Have you ever really given it some serious thought?

We're in a new year. Or a New Year, depending on your perspective. Many will make new resolutions and will develop new goals with new plans to reach those goals.

Here's one for all of us. Take a close look at who we are hanging out with and how they are affecting our lives. Are they lifting us up?

Here is a good quote to think about from Avina Celeste. “Surround yourself with people that inspire and encourage positive change in your life. Build a team in which you can work together to support each other and build better lives.”

You'll know you are in such a team when the energy is palpable, the encouragement is constant, and the focus is clear and purposeful.

Energy, encouragement, focus. Like any great recipe, the ingredients are important. Leave out a key ingredient and the end result isn't nearly as good.

If you are looking for something to inspire you, if you are seeking positive change, if you'd like to be part of a team that works together to build better lives, consider joining our Pewamo Protect Life team.

This invitation goes out to students in grades 5 through college age and also to the parents or any adult looking to be part of something that works to make things better and to serve as God's Hands and Feet on earth.

I can offer this personal testimony. Part of my job is to teach our group things about leadership, teamwork, and about acting in support of life.

But they have taught me as well. This student-led team shows by example what resiliency, courage, and conviction can do and they do it while having fun along the way.

Surround yourself with people that inspire and encourage. If you join our team, you will be inspired and encouraged.
