After feeling like I could never measure up to God's standards in my youth, I was so freed when I was reintroduced to the concepts of God's grace and love. Nothing I did or didn't do would make him love me any more or less. His grace not only covered my sin before I was saved, but also after. Ho... Read more of this blog post »

Seeking God’s Will?
How is God at Work in Your Life?
