On Being a Message Bearer {for my writing, speaking, ministry leading friends}

Message Bearer Manifesto for Writers, Speakers, and Ministry Leaders

Wouldn’t you agree that being a message bearer is no easy thing? It’s a responsibility and calling. It’s a burden and privilege. It is full of blessing and too many trials.

4 Key Steps Toward Real Life Change

Do you know what the secret is to experiencing real life change? Oh, yes, there’s a secret. It’s not a magic pill. It’s not some big expensive program or eCourse you need to invest into.
