Own Your Life Book

A book that has meant so much to me and has touched my heart on so many levels is Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson. I mentioned earlier this month that it should be the first book you read this year. And I mean that.

It will challenge, encourage, and push you to be more of the woman that God created you to be. Sally shares what it means to live your life in a meaningful way, follow God in all you do, and gives practical guidance to build a life that is intentional.
