May 28 – Quiet, Please!

May 23 – Try A Different Approach

3:144 – Try A Different Approach #faithbites #faithjourney approach Tonight my youngest just didn’t want to listen to me. No matter what I said or did, it wasn’t clicking.

3:105 – Just Hang In There #faithbites #faithjourney hang Some days you just need to hang in there. For instance, I tried to do a video #faithbite and it was constantly interrupted by the dog, the kids, the video, everything. But it is what it is. It reinforced the need for this #faithbites.
