If Jesus Had Instagram…

Culture Shift I remember when I was in elementary and middle school, social media didn’t even exist. Not that it wasn’t on the rise, but it didn’t exist for me. Friends meant people that I hung out with… people I saw and had physical interaction with. The physical presence directly correlated to who were my [...]

Welcome To Reality   There is power in seeing reality; it gives you vision for where you need to go. You are broken. Welcome to reality. Contrary to popular belief, being broken is not a treacherous place to be. But, the world will continue to shove that lie down your throat as it throws glitter [...]
