"It's almost like they want you to say one thing. It's not one thing. It's a thousand little things. He's in tune with the little things, not just the big things, and that's imbedded in our entire program."
This was a quote from a recent interview with Jeff Allen, the head athletic trainer for Alabama who has been there since Nick Saban took over in 2007, about Coach Saban.
How many times do we ignore the little decisions in life? Little decisions often snowball into big changes, so keep in mind that nothing is insignificant in your life.
“I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.” - Psalm 3:4
Psalm 3 was written while David's kingdom was under rebellion from his son Absalom. David had done some bad things leading up to this moment that snowballed into the rebellion. In this verse, David is praying to God for repentance and guidance, and God responded. He will do the same for you, too!
What are some small changes you can make now to prepare for the big changes you want to make in your life?
Think back to a life-altering event and the period leading up to it. Can you identify small things you did that brought on that moment? Now take that idea and apply it to your present to build a positive future!

Let’s get going!
It’s the beginning of the year, so resolutions are on everyone’s mind. New year, new me, and all that. Did you know that only 9% of people felt successful about keeping their resolutions at the end of the year in 2016?
Instead of just making resolutions, take the time to figure out the steps in order to achieve the goals that are in those resolutions. Break it down as detailed as you can so that you’ll be able to see the journey (and also the progress) and you get closer to following through with your resolutions!
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.” - Isaiah 43:18
In this portion of scripture, the Lord is telling Israel through the prophet Isaiah (but it can be applied to us) that we don’t need to worry about the past. He has brought us through hardship before, and it’s important to have faith that he will continue to do that for us.
What is one goal you want to achieve this year?
Think about this for a while, and once you have your answer, write. it. down. Don't just keep it in your head. Put it somewhere you can see it every day to remind you to take the steps to achieve that goal!
Thank you so much for signing up, and I'm looking forward to achieving goals with you as we journey through 2022 together!
