I recently decided I should probably listen to God about going back to school to get my Bachelor Degree and eventually my Master's Degree. It definitely wasn't something I decided on my own. There are plenty of things I could do in my spare time. However, God has huge plans for me and I want … Continue reading Lessons Jesus Taught in Statistics Class
Many times in life I have heard the phrase "be careful you don't burn all your bridges". I've been thinking a lot about this lately. I agree there are times you must be careful and not do this.

I am blessed as God continues to put many people in my life that speak truth and that are living for Jesus.
