Favorite Quotes from Empowering Women in Their Callings with Julie Holmquist …
“…because if we get bitter in that disappointment, that’s where we get stuck. And then we’re not doing anyone any good. Matter of fact, the Bible says the bitterness poisons everybody, right? And so we just need to always keep our heart in check with the Lord. And he’s called us to be fruitful, not successful, and success looks very different to Him.” –Julie Holmquist
“Seeing the gifts in other people and calling them out, empowering them and just cheering them on all along the way brings me so much joy” –Julie Holmquist
