How to Overcome Self Defeating Thoughts

I never thought I’d be a writer much less write a book. I knew how to write essay’s in high-school, and I’m fairly good at grammar, but although that’s real nice, it doesn’t make someone a good writer.

If you don't stand firm in your faith, you'll fall for anything. Here are 3 ways to stand firm!

The Amazing Struggle: The lessons in life we learn come through our struggles

The past year (or so) has been ridiculous (crazy is my definition of ridiculous) and the struggle has been real. God never promised us life would be easy. He DID promise us that He would be with us every step of the way. 2016 was certainly the year of struggles.
