It's Not a Coincidence

Alyssa Robinson served on No Selfie Saturday and made connections that have nothing to do with her and everything to do with God. Do you have a story from No Selfie Saturday?

We'd only been trying for two months but here they were. I immediately pulled out my phone to calculate my... Read More

One card. One minute. One person.

Another loss of life. Another senseless act of violence. Another time to mourn what should not be. I immediately reflect on Orlando,... Read More
