What does Onward & Upward Mean to you?

“Onward means a continuing journey because we are not a destination, we are on a trail. Upward means to raise your consciousness to know more about that higher power, that presence that’s with you…

When you trust in the power called God, you can conquer anything.” – Bishop Dr. Barbara King
