Well, today I’m going to talk about ‘it’ and whether we know it or not, ‘it’ can have a greater effect on your life than ‘they’ ever could if you allow it to. ‘It’ can be anything that you’ve been holding to—a bad breakup, negative feelings toward a parent, a petty fight with a […]

A Servant’s Heart

A Servant's Heart

In a room full of Christians, if I asked how many people would profess to be Christ-followers, hands would go up all around the room. But if I asked how many people are actually living to serve, I’m pretty sure those high hands would start to slowly fall down. If you know the story of Jesus, then you know that everything that he did was to serve others [Matthew 20:28]. So if we’re proclaimed followers of Christ, how did so many of us miss this […]

Just A Few Of My Thoughts On Friendship

I’ve talked about friendship on the blog before and trust me— I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination. I’m human and I make mistakes just as much as the next person.
