    Follow the Leader: Keeping Your Eyes on Jesus

    Hello, friend! Welcome to part two of this series on fulfilling purpose. If you have not, you can read part one here.

    Genesis 3: Thoughts on the Fall

    This morning, I read chapter 3 of the biblical book of Genesis as part of my daily devotion.

On the drive home, I glance back a few times to check if he’s […]

    Does God Understand?
