What's new this week?

What's new this week? 




Speaker: Annie Meehan


Topic: The 5 Keys to Wellness


Embracing change is bigger than acceptance, it is about being totally open to the change that is coming. It is about looking for the silver lining even if it is a challenging Change. How do you feel about change? I love Monday mornings a new day, new week, clean slate to do over. I am at choice again about what I do with my week, what attitude, perspective and lens I will look through this week. Will you join me in looking for the good?


 Annie is  a Motivational Speaker and Life Coach. Focusing on Change, Choice, Intention,Prespective An authhor of 3 books Paths, Detours & Possibilities, Be the Exception , companion Bible Study
Guide to Be the Exception
