Building A Jesus Platform (THROWBACK MONTH)

(Originally posted 8-21-19) 

The other day while mowing my lawn, I had a revelation.  Some of my best thoughts nowadays come during that hour or so I spend out in my yard.  The only downside is, I’m at a loss…

The Home Is A Battlefield (Parenthood Series)
