A Guide to Kid-Safe Messaging Apps

Kids are becoming more and more tech savvy every day.

While it’s great when you have a computer issue to solve, it can be a challenge when it comes to the ways they communicate with peers.

How Could Jesus Have Remained In The Tomb Three Days If He Was Crucified On Friday And Rose On Sunday?

PRAYER TO ROOT OUT

Let every plant that my Father has not planted be rooted out in the name of Jesus.

I lay the axe to the root of every evil tree in my life.
