How Teaching Yourself the Gospel Could Make You a Better Runner

I have always loved Hebrews 12:1-2!

You Are What You Think

A Challenge Just For You It started sometime in the beginning of this year.  I kept hearing this phrase or something similar, “You are what you think.”  I joined a bible study on Speaking Truth in Your Heart and came across a verse I was familiar with, but this time it took on new meaning.Continue reading “You Are What You Think”

Should I, Should I Not

Should I?  Should I Not?  Ever had this run through your mind when making a decision?  If you’re anything like me you have and multiple times, maybe even every hour for weeks on end!  I know how complicated making decisions can be, but during these times of confusion and uncertainty it has drawn me closerContinue reading “Should I, Should I Not”
