“If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.”

Last summer we were surprised by a visit from two of our young neighbor children.

A Shy Guy Speaks Up

In April of 2010 I went on a Journey to the Heart, where I dealt with many issues of the heart and learned a lot about who I am in Christ. One of the things I learned about, was that God wants us to share our faith with others instead of keeping it to ourselves. Since a very young age, I kept my faith...
