25 Ways to Win With People

I do our churche's newsletter every month. It is something that I took over about a year ago. The best thing about doing the newsletter is getting to see everything that is going in it ahead of time. Our preacher is doing a "Winning With People" sermon series and he sent me something a little special to put in the newsletter. I plan to start today and for the next 25 days I will do one of these a day as a Bible study. I don't really read the Bible or do Bible studies but I hope maybe this will put me in the mood and create a new habit for me. I love to read things that relate to my life and the season that I am in. Right now...I feel like I just can't win with some people. So hopefully this will help me to handle myself better or to handle them better. Here is the "25 Ways to Win With People" study that I will be doing:
