END-OF-YEAR SERIES

KEEP RECEIVING UNTIL 11:59:59

It’s so easy to get caught up in anticipating or preparing for a New Year, that we don’t possess every single blessing of the year we are currently in.

You see, every single day and every single year has its blessings, and it would be unwise to stop expecting and receiving for the year – just because it is the 29th or 30th of December. Read More…

THE STORY OF LISA AND ZACH

It was a mass wedding – and she was the youngest of the five brides.
