if you’re in need of a miracle, this is step one.


For years, I lived a life without faith. I put Jesus in the same category as comic-book action figures: strong and mighty on paper, but pure fiction and utterly useless in times of need. I remained faithless until I responded to this strong sense, thumping inside of me, that I finally needed to ...
