    DVULI was revolutionary. At first it was overwhelming because it shined a light on so many things that I could do differently. As I began to walk it out and trust the process, I realized that I was receiving some tools that were not just for today. They were intended to be a treasure trove that I would be living out of for the rest of my life.
