Self-Talk

Yes it’s true; I talk to myself. My wife gives me a hard time because I’ll be in the shower or just sitting around talking quietly to myself about stuff. Sometimes it’s practicing something I’ll say to someone, making sure my responses are appropriate. Other times I’m just chewing on a problem. I think that […]

God’s Timing

Septic Thoughts

We’re finishing the last couple videos from Craig Groeschel’s Soul Detox in our Sunday morning adult Bible study. Today we were learning about septic thoughts.
