The Heart Of Worship

Worship. It’s something we all do. Everyone is worshiping. Everyone is always worshiping. Worship doesn’t start and stop. Worship is continuous.

A Different Take On New Year’s Resolutions

I think by now, we’ve all heard the truth about New Year’s resolutions. We make ‘em to break ‘em. Gyms everywhere are packed with people working off their treats from the Christmas season, but, as fitness fanatics like to remind us, they’ll be gone by Valentine’s Day.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

When you think of Christmas, you think of gifts right? You make a list of people you have to buy for – not necessarily because you feel obligated, but because you want to express your love for them this time of year. You make a mental list of all the things you want – just […]
