Spark Your Faith

Sometimes in life we hit a point where each day just feels like a repeat of the day before; We feel like we’re stuck or we’ve lost our passion and our fire.

God has shown me many, many times over that he can ignite that spark in a bazillion different ways. Let’s talk about some of them!!
