Countdown to Christmas


It’s hard to imagine that we are already over halfway through November. This Friday, the town we live in will hold its annual light-up night celebration.

It is the process of how she comes to live beyond Saul’s death and live out her life purpose…one she determined following a violent death in another lifetime. keep reading
