    Perfectly Free

    “We are not perfectly free until we live in pure hope.” I have read that line over and over. I’ve put it everywhere. On my mirror, in my car and on my computer as a reminder of where my hope comes from.

    Lessons from a Prayer Prodigal

    I am not a prayer warrior. Am I allowed to say that? I really struggle with prayer and deeply admire people who don’t.
