A Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for creating me. Thank You for blessing me with so, so much. Thank You for the incredible world that You made. You really are amazing! You made this whole, insanely complex world in 6 days! That is almost unbelievable! But You are an awesome God,…

Daniels Faith; brave the lions

Most of us have known the story of Daniel for as long as we can remember. I know that I have! Because of that I never really took a closer look at it, that is, until today. Daniel 6 has one of the most incredible stories of faith that the…
