Take a Walk In Her Shoes, Part 1

Have you ever taken a leap of faith in life only to find yourself without a parachute?

Six Degrees of Separation

Most of us are familiar with the concept of “six degrees of separation:” the idea that we’re all connected by six people or less. In the same way, God uses the people in our lives to bring us closer to the solutions to our prayers. We may be one well-placed conversation, or person, away from...
