Overcoming Sexual Sin

I’m guessing that the title of this one alone has caused some click bait. People’s ears perk up whenever the topic of sex is addressed. It’s innate within our makeup. Then you go and add the word “sin” after it, and you might as well start an all-out war, especially…

Overcoming Rejection

Rejection…a wound that cuts deep and often feels irreparable. Have you ever tasted it? I think it’s safe to say that if you’re alive, you’ve experienced some form of rejection. Whether it be big or small, rejection seems to be something that visits every single human being in this life.…
