Quiet Time with God: My In-Depth Routine + Ideas, Tips, and Scriptures

How I Changed My Bible Study from Lackluster to Life Giving: Make Reading the Bible Fun!

When I was younger, I never made much time to study the Bible. In all honesty, it didn't much appeal to me. 

I didn't really understand the words and I had no idea how to really make sense of them. Unfortunately, I had a lot more fun things I wanted to be doing!

3 Ways to Grow Closer to Christ and Find Your Purpose!

Growing up, the knives in my family kitchen were always dull. My momma had a fear of cutting herself while cooking, so she never let my dad sharpen any of our cutlery. While she was very content with having to deal with the dull utensils, my sister and I always complained.

Sometimes in life, we ourselves can be just like those dull knives!

When we refuse to sharpen ourselves, attempts at fulfilling God’s purpose in our life can be frustrating and seem a little hopeless. It can take longer than necessary and give us results that don’t turn out exactly as we’d hoped.
