27. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011.
 There is freedom in trusting God with all my heart and not leaning unto my own understanding. I also learned that God has amazing plans for me and He is able to use me for His glory where I am. Another lesson learned is that there is power in contentment. I could go on and on. This was an amazing year of learning and I am thankful.
