A Year Filled with Blessings!

I prayed and prayed for God to help me figure out the direction I needed to take.  And He delivered the most awesome message to me.  He said, "Trust Me."  And in the midst of conflict and disappointment, I handed it all over to Him once again and…

Presenting in memoir form his own account of three personal Great Awakenings, the author presents from his co-careers in mental health counseling and pastoral ministry a challenge for persons (however small) and communities (…
