Is There More For You?

If God is real then what? If there was a greater story than the one you see right in front of you, would it be a good idea to know what that is? If there was a life of deep-seated joy and peace available, if there was a God who would protect and provide and be your...

How Do You Ask God For Something?

For a long time praying, to me, felt like paper airplanes thrown into the air to an Almighty God that I couldn’t quite wrap my head around. Hope thrown into the darkness, into the expanse of the sky. To me, the word “pray” was so overused that it seemed to have lost...
