The Time I Lost my Phone and Found Something Greater

A couple of weeks ago, I found myself in a situation only God could have saved me from. It wasn't the most dramatic situation in the world, but it reminded me of how God is not just invested in the "big pictures" of our lives, but in the little details of our lives as well.… Continue reading The Time I Lost my Phone and Found Something Greater

Flip the Script

Have you ever been in a situation where someone wronged you and for the rest of that day (or week), all you could do was replay the situation in your head over and over again?
