In your brightest days always pray. In your darkest hour always pray. When you are full of confidence, always pray. When uncertainty surrounds you, always pray. When you are feeling your best, always pray. When you are feeling your worst, always pray. When you are as bold as a lion, always pray. When fear grips your heart, always pray. Make prayer a part of your everyday life. No matter the situation, always pray.

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president's secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation, President Obama asked Michelle why was he so interested in talking to you. She mentioned that, in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, "so if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant", to which Michelle responded, "no, if I had married him, he would now be President".

Lead by example. Be the bigger person in disputes and conflicts. Know how to hold your peace and when to walk away. On your job exhibit your best performance even when no one is looking. As a parent don't just tell your child to do better. Show him or her how to do better. As a spouse always try to give 100%. Whether you hold a leadership title or not, God has given you leadership abilities. You have to develop them and be faithful in what He has entrusted in your care. Take pride in who God made you and seek His approval not man's. Lead by example.

It is so easy to take each other for granted and get caught up in the pattern of not expressing your appreciation to your spouse. It doesn't take allot to show appreciation but its the little things as well as the big things that count. For example saying "thank you" to each other each and every time your spouse does something thoughtful for you. Making an effort to work on any habits that may bother your spouse so your partner knows that you are mindful of his/her feelings and last but not least saying the three words that allot of people forget to say "I love you". Feeling appreciated don't take much but without it, it can cause many issues.
