I have one Halloween tradition. That is to shop for half-priced candy on November 1st. I just don’t have the “let’s celebrate Halloween” bone in my body. Blame it on my parents. As a child, I was not allowed to dress up and go trick or treating. Instead I watched “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and passed out candy to the children who could participate.

This week’s Motivational Monday is a little different. I usually share an insight on a specific subject or scriptures to pray over. Today I am sharing 5 inspirational sermons, teachings, and talks to help you get through the week.

Listen to them on your commute to work, during your lunch break, and even as you work. You will want to listen to these messages over and over again. Get ready to be creatively empowered in Christ!

Do you consider God’s promises to be sweet? Usually when we think of sweetness, we think of something edible like the creamy goodness of a chocolate fudge brownie topped with vanilla ice cream or a handful of sugar-dusted gummy bears or even… I’m getting carried away.
