I start each morning in my “big butt prayer chair” talking to God. I know He hears me. He has answered many of my prayers in mighty ways and has thankfully denied countless others.

But seriously, who likes looking (and feeling) like an idiot? I met my friend, Gina, for lunch today at this huge restaurant. The place was teeming with people, mostly dressed in business… Read More
