ARE YOU ASHAMED TO PRAY?

Ashamed to Pray by Jennifer Slattery. Jennifer walks us through her day of truth – going from self-love to seeing how to act like Christ.

He went from a man of faith to a man stumbling over the most basic of Christ centered principles. His eyes are wild when I see him… Continue reading FEAR

SIMPLY SATURDAY – Regrets

Simply Saturday I decided to move A Better Way to Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Since I also produce another blog called Under the Cover of Prayer that has posts that run Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, I thought it better if those who subscribed to both blogs got a new post a day instead of two… Continue reading SIMPLY SATURDAY – Regrets
