call to love

Who are you being called to love? A friend? A family member? Sponsor a child? Feed the homeless? Go on a mission trip? That man that's always drunk at the bar?

re-bound

When we hear the word “rebound” applied to modern day relationships, we usually think of a person that is used purely for the intent of getting over another person.  Which is why, when God put this thought in my head, I was completely confused. “Let me be your rebound,” He told me. Rebound? God wants… Continue reading re-bound
