Leading with a small "L"

Leading with a small “L” is showing those who are looking to us for guidance that you are there to serve them and not to dominate them. An example of leading with a small “L” is of King Benjamin from the book of Mosiah. Usually when we think of a King we envision a man sitting on a throne being waited on hand and foot by many people. This is not the case with King Benjamin. He was out tilling the fields and harvesting the crops with the others in the kingdom. He was truly a servant of the people. For me that is what it means to lead to lead with a small “L”. Serve those we are leading so we all can be blessed learn together.

When we teach so that people can understand the lesson and they enjoy learning then for me this type of teaching can contribute to being a disciple leader. Jesus taught us by example. He did not go around forcing people what he knew to be the will of his father on the people. He left their agency intact. People have to want to learn and we have to make it so that they will want to learn and forcing people to learn is not what being a disciple leader is all about.

Getting a good education can keep us out of financial difficulties

In this fast paced highly technical world of ours a good education is almost essential for success. Yes some individuals are able to get by without it, but what are the chances that one of us will be that lucky. The chances are very slim to nil. So if we want to be able to care for ourselves and our families the best that we can then we need to get the education that we can. Whether it be online like Walden University or actually sitting at a desk and listening to a lecture or something else as long as it provides the knowledge that can get us to the top then it is good no mater what.

This goes for mothers as well. You never know what is going to happen to your spouse. He could become a vegetable because of illness or injury at work or even worse. Then where will you and family be if you can not provide for them. Up the creek without a paddle that is for sure. So take some time and get a good education now while you still have time.

Valiant Watercolor Professional Quality Pen Set 20 Color Soft Flexible Tip. Perfect for Children's Coloring Books Manga Caligraphy Lettering. 100% Non-Toxic and Safe.

One of the things that I love to do aside from my photography is a watercolor painting. I love how watercolor gives life to a simple image. Here is an example of an image that I painted. A watermelon. I painted this image using a watercolor brush pen. This pen has a flexible nylon brush tip which makes it possible to create fine, medium, and bold strokes. How I achieved the fading color in my watercolor paint? I used a refillable blending brush pen that comes with the watercolor brush pens that I used. I get so excited when I see the watercolor effect of these pens. They are so easy to use.  

And when I need to unwind from my day to day activities. I will sit for a few minutes and enjoy the color of these watercolor brush pens using a coloring book that has beautiful and inspirational quotes.
