By Dave Henning / December 31, 2023

“Every person on the planet today is on a spiritual journey.  Each one of us is either failing or sailing, walking by faith or stuck in place, surviving or thriving.  If you feel unable to move beyond your plow, to accept the mantle of promotion God has for you, then perhaps it is time to […]
