Everyone uses words in some form or fashion.
Some use words more than others.
No matter which end of the spectrum you are on, words are an intrinsic part of life because we all use them throughout the day.
Words can do so many things from conveying good or bad news to convincing, persuading, and selling.
Words have been around since the beginning of time when God said, “Let there be light.”

She was so excited to share her low-carb discovery with me that she texted me a picture of her new find.

Our raft guide described each rapid—before we went through them—with a “splooshing factor” and a...
Goals. Dreams. Desires.
We all have them.
Some of us make plans and follow through.
...While others are content to sit on the sidelines and dream about the possibilities.
No matter what “thing” you want or need — each of us live in one camp or another.
