Be Fearless

“On another Sabbath he went into the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was shriveled. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath. But Jesus knew what…

Don’t Sit on Your Gift

Two of my favorite things to talk about is prayer and purpose. Even though I am no expert in either subject, I believe these two things, especially when put together, allow us to experience life like never before.

Feelings of Hopelessness

As I watched the events at the capital unfold, my stomach churned. The violence, the anger, the mob mentality became too much to watch. At one point, I wanted to curl up in a ball and cry. But, just as I felt a breakdown creep up, scriptures flooded my spirit. “Peace I leave with you;…
