When at a loss for what to do… 1. Do what you know HOW to DO. 2. Remember what you KNOW to be TRUE. 3. Find something NEW for YOU. I like to explore ALL my options. So much so, that it has become a joke in our family. If you want something researched like a […]
Do you remember Moses? He was that guy with white long hair from the Bible who was met in the desert by a bush. Not just an ordinary bush. This bush was a talking, on-fire-yet-not-being-consumed-by-flames kinda bush. Probably the only bush of its kind to ever exist. Moses wasn’t out looking for power. He had skeletons […]
