Never Say God Can’t Use You

I spent a good bit of my 20s trying to figure out the best way to make an influence, help others, and make a difference for God. Wanting to find your “calling” (as many people call it) is an honorable pursuit, yet we should not stress ourselves over it. After wasting a lot of time worrying and trying out different…

How to Become Fluent in the Language of Love

Four letter words always get our attention and are usually fueled by emotion. Yet one four-letter word stands above the rest when it comes to conveying feelings, and though it’s perfectly fine to say, it can be one of the hardest to leave the lips. That word is Love.
