Straight up, I have a lot of books. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise to many of you. At Christmas, most of my presents are fresh printer-and-ink-smelling rectangles in tacky Christmas wrap, simply because I make it easy for my husband to guess what I want by constantly adding a pile of Marissa … Continue reading Can I be in your Shelfie?
Today is the second day that I have been praying for a revival to break out in Canada. Far-fetched, you think? It's not as unrealistic of a prayer as you realize. In 1904, a revival took place in Wales. A man named Evan Roberts had prayed for ten years that the people of Wales would … Continue reading Catching the Fire of Revival – Part III
