Decision Making Tips and Tricks: Part 1

By Melody on

“I just don’t know how to choose!”

The above exclamation is one that I have both said and heard many times. Making decisions is hard! Making decisions about big life events, like what job to take or whether you should tithe your career through GoCorps, is even harder. We all want to make good choices and as Christians, we all want to follow God. But how do you know where to go and what to do?
