Stories of Saints

As you know, I love a good book. I enjoy reading all kinds of books from deep theology to general Christian living, and from spiritual warfare to stories of people’s lives. I enjoy reading stories about people’s lives because often they are a mixture of exerting. There’s normally deep theological truths, experiences of the Lord’sContinue reading “Stories of Saints”

But how much does it really happen? It’s an easy phrase to roll off the tip of theContinue reading “I’m Praying for You”
