  • Self-Discipline

    This post is about self-discipline. However, I did want to make sure to add information about the difference between self-discipline and self-control.

  • Self-Control

    Self-Control is described as restraint exercised over one’s own impulses, emotions or desires. Galatians 5:23 – “…gentleness, and self-control.

  • Contentment

    Contentment – a satisfied state; tranquil happiness 1 Timothy 6:6 – “Godliness with contentment is great gain.” How satisfied are you with your life?
