Zo “N” e

By now if you having been hanging in there and following the Back 9 posts, you know we are almost done with our series on understanding the steps involved in reaching your God-designed “STRENGTH ZONE”. The one thing I can attest to is that on the FRONT 9 I lived in my created Strength Zone […]

Focusing on the Z-O-N-E

If you have been reading the journal posts for the last week or so, then you have kept up with us as we have looked at the steps necessary to operate and live in your God-created “Strength Zone”. We have moved through the S-T-R-E-N-G-T-H portion and today we will start focusing on the Z-O-N-E. If […]
