Kingdoms at War

Coming soon! I’ve hinted at this for a few months, and I’ve shared it on social media, but I’ll soon be releasing a 30 Day Devotional book. This book will feature 30 daily segments of a short section of Scripture, my thoughts on that scripture and a small prayer. All of it meant to point your […]

do something

Do nothing. Be nothing. Say nothing.

The. Best. Year. Ever. The Golden State Warriors NBA team is all the rage these days. For years they were a championship afterthought.
