The Book of the Empowerer

The Book of the Empowerer

These are not all original. Many of them you may have heard used colloquially. I just decided to make a list of some words to live by; words to grow by; words to empower.

    Always remember, Noah was a Prepper, too.

    Thought about that quote the other day. Our Pastor asked us who in the Bible we most relate to, I thought about that quote after we left, unfortunately. He would have got a kick out of that.
