Do Your Part And He Will Do The Rest

Last edited 27th June 2018

Rest. We all want it. Maybe more often than we will admit. That's why it doesn't surprise me when people come back from a holiday and are already planning the next one. Could it be then that we are looking for it in the wrong places?

The Deadly Sin That Got Me Shook

Last edited 21st June 2018

If there's one sin that follows me around like a dead smell, it's envy! Like most Millennials, I spend a lot of time scrolling endlessly on YouTube, Snapchat and Facebook.

Discovering God's Will Within Us

Last edited 7th May 2018

St. Catherine of Siena is known for saying, “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” In this video, Matt Fradd seconds that notion and encourages us to be the person our deepest desires tell us to be, because that's the person God wants us to be.
