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.

3:141 – If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes #faihbites #faithjourney changes In chemistry and physics, a closed system at rest will stay at rest until something changes.

May 17 – It’s Not About You, It’s About Us

3:138 – It’s Not About You, It’s About Us #faithbites #faithjourney Us When I was in High School, I did Lincoln-Douglas debating.

Nov 16 – Afraid of Nothing

2:320 – Afraid Of Nothing #faithbites #faithjourney afraid Today was a rough day. Worst anxiety in a couple of years. Just wanted to crawl into a ball. I prayed a lot and took a lot of deep breaths.
