It really is a key to the Kingdom!

I’m referring to discipleship – true, authentic discipleship!  Iron sharpening iron.  Contending for truth together. It is a key to our walk with Him. It is a key to growth. It is a key to learning. It is a key to love.

Sharing my hunger for more of this world through lips that say “if only we had a bigger house, more money, newer car … ” the list goes on. Continue reading

Visual learner.

God often talks to me in pictures. He knows I am a visual learner.  He knows, because He created me that way!
