Shifting Your Focus, Finding Contentment

06.21.16 | Spiritual Growth

Contentment begins with our heart. If we set our heart on the things we want and what we deserve, we’ll always feel like something is missing. But, as Kyle York points out in today’s L3 reading, if we remember who owns all things, we...

The Struggle to Hand off Our Faith

06.20.16 | Unstuck
