Friends Devotion #2

When my son went to college he was determined to make new friends. Having been taught that you have to “be a friend to have one,” he was determined that within the first week he was going to have made new long-term friends. Probably two weeks into moving into his dorm...

Friends Devotion #1

Friendship. It's truly one of the most beautiful things we can participate in as human beings. This week we are going to explore how we can be "superheroes" in our friendships. When we claim the power we have to both give and receive friendship, our lives will be...
