Personal Philosophy

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

- 2 Timothy 2:15, NASB

Three Questions for an approved life: 1) Is the Lord well-pleased, 2) Is the Labor well-done, and 3) Is the LOGOS (WORD) well-used?
