(Baby) Steps of Faith

I’ll never forget the first blog post I ever wrote. I actually wrote it without being sure I would ever share it with anyone. God was stirring something in my heart and I simply had to get it out.

Jesus Died for Relationship

Well, it is that time of year again. This Sunday is Easter and if I had to guess church services, grandma’s house and Easter egg hunts will fill the majority of your day.
