1.19.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Endurance & Encouragement

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Today is my son’s 21st birthday.

1.2.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: From Characters to People

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Recently, I shared with you that I have changed up my morning devotion time in order to start reading this huge stack of spiritual growth books that I have and never get around to reading.

It’s seriously not my intent to turn … Continue reading 1.2.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: From Characters to People

12.15.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: How To Live Your Best Life

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• When it comes to our world today, many claim they are out to “Live My Best Life.” I get the concept. We have one life to live, make the most of it.
