First Fast

Theres something beautiful that happens when we choose to be obedient to God. He enlightens us. The way I choose to live my life is very backwards at times. I get lost in my own desires, I focus on myself and what is good for me, and I forget how to surrender. God has this … More First Fast

Christ-Like

I used to wonder: “What does it mean to be a Christian?” Some will say: “Being a Christian means following the Ten Commandments.” Or “being a Christian means going to church every week.” But how does Christianity shape our daily lives?
