Carpe Diem.

You’ve probably heard people use this Latin term, meaning “seize the day,” as they try to stay motivated in life. But when it comes to purpose and direction, many of us struggle. How exactly do you make the most of each day—especially when you feel lost or uninspired?

Billy Graham once said, “We’re never useless if our lives are in God’s hands.” Even the smallest, most mundane tasks can be purposeful if we do them for the right reasons. No matter where you are in life, these resources can help you navigate through the questions, frustrations, boredom or complacency that sneak up from time to time.
