When I was in college, I had a tattoo idea. I’ve always loved Philippians 4:6-7 — “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ… Read More Obedience & Peace
If you’re somehow involved with the field of education — students, teachers, parents — you know the pandemic has posed challenges we never thought we’d encounter.
