Growing in Faith

Why pray?

When we pray we are discovering the heart of God, knowing Him, finding Him, and seeking Him - for He is our soul's desire.


From generation to generation

Rules were made to be broken! Or were they?… We grow up with this saying, thinking that rules are bad, guidelines are restrictive, and by following something like God, we are freaks who are weak.
