An All Consuming Fire

Where do you place your security? Is it in your money, your job, your title? Where do you find joy? It is through sports, shopping, entertainment, or relationships? Where do you find your peace?

Uphill Climb

Ever have one of those hard weeks where you want to crawl into a hole and just stay there awhile? Just like an adult self imposes timeout where you need to step aside for a bit? I know that may sound a bit dramatic, but this week has felt like an uphill climb I was... Continue Reading →
