Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to attend Winter Jam 2014! My friends and I were brave enough (some would say stupid enough) to stand outside for almost two hours in the freezing weather (Illinois) to get front row seats.

“A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you’re looking down, you can’t see something that’s above you.“– C.S. Lewis If I had to guess, I would say that we have all had pride issues at one time or another. Yes, we have all probably heard sermons on this topic time and time again as well. … Continue reading The Sneaky Little Sin Rides Again!
***** (5 Stars) Has God given you a dream or desire to be more for Him or be used by Him in ministry, yet, it just doesn’t seem to be happening? I know I’ve been there.

Have you ever wanted to live in a commune? Today is one of those days for me! I just want to run away from the world and surround myself with nothing but Jesus.
