Have you ever struggled with fully obeying God? I have. I once felt the Holy Spirit nudge me toward obedience. He was telling me to let go of some potential opportunities because I was giving them too much importance in my life; they were edging […]

I’ve spent a lot of time in-between endings and new beginnings. I have transitioned from the old to the new when I moved from Idaho to England, and from England back to Idaho. Then, I transitioned from Idaho to Germany; Germany to Texas; Texas to […]
