An Anecdote to Discouragement!

Do you ever have days where you are down, discouraged, depressed, or are just burnt out on life? I am not necessarily talking about consistent clinical depression, but just days where we are weary from the responsibilities we are faced with daily. Let’s face it, sometimes life is just hard and we struggle with whether […]

Stop Labeling and Start Engaging!

I am always in a state of prayer that God would allow me to see Him at work around me and to open up opportunities for me to minister. I believe that God is always working around us if we would just be obedient in recognizing the open doors. There is an older lady that […]
