God will

I wake up a lot at night and when I do I usually put myself back to sleep by praying for people. It’s kind of like counting sheep and I can fall back to sleep after getting through about five people. Given that I wake up at least three times a night, 15 people get […]

Entertained by Sin

We watched the last in a five-part series by Craig Groeschel called Soul Detox today in our Sunday morning adult Bible study.
