What Keeps You from Growing Closer to God?

What keeps you from growing closer to God? Huh….  I don’t think about this often, but when I do I’m always surprised at what my answer ends up being. Your answer may be simple or it may have so many twists and turns it would give a roller coaster a run for its money! I […]

Being Ethical…No Matter What
