Focus High

Have-tos. Unresolved matters. The to-do list. Our children’s cares. Unfinished work. Interruptions. Lots going on that can feel like a brick has been put upon our spirits. When your heart is heavy, keep plugging away at your prayer lives, moms. Keep talking to God, keep focused on Him, all the […]
