Back to School
Many of us are dictated by school schedules when it’s a time to start fresh and embrace new changes. Adapting to these new changes is easier for some than for others. But all of us can be challenged to make one important resolution: to spend time in God’s Word on a daily basis. In His Word our Lord reveals Himself and His will for our lives. His revelation informs our hearts, heads, and hands and transforms our lives and lifestyles.
