“To my mind, what I must ask of God in prayer is that He tell me what he wants me to do and that He inspire me with the disposition He wants me to have.”
St. John Baptiste de la Salle
You have been chosen. Chosen to lead. Because you have a gift. You have a vision. You communicate. You care. You have a compassion for others fueled by a passion to do right. You carry yourself with a sense of justice and fortitude that others find inspiring. Most likely you have led already without even realizing the positive influence you have on others.
