"Welcome to "Personal Service Work:", Christopher! So glad to have you! We are currently trying to wind down submissions for the E-Book. We have several really good stories. Sounds like your dreams involve a lot of this sort of thing.…"

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard about 47Days.NET at 90.1 WMBI in Chicago - Moody Radio ( of famed Moody Bible Institute ). this radio station is one of the blessings I have received since being in the Chicago area (altho' I am actually northwest - even closer to Wisconsin). I purchased Dan's 2 books "48 Days to the Work You Love" and "No More Mondays" and a fire was sparked in me. It's a long story..if anyone wants the details I'll be glad to testify. Anyway, I hope to receive encouragement & support from being part of this community, not to mention possible tips & ideas for my journey. But also, I want to learn to SHARE..I have a lot to give and have been shut away and somewhat introverted due to some bad choices and some bad incidences in my life. I am trying to turn that around now - I am the prodigal daughter and since returning to the Lord, my life has been more than I had hoped for. Even tho' I am currently unemployed due to lay-off and trying to get things started at home, without even really having a clue what I am doing - I have had this enormous flood of peace & faith to see me thru. And even now, as I write - tears of gratitude fall - knowing that I am already truly blessed to have found this network. Thanks again to all who set it up and for all who participate. May God Bless Us All. Susie D.
