Plank Hunt – My Unforgiving Ways And WW Linkup

I’m excited to get back to the “Plank Hunt” series because it’s so important to realize the power we have to impact our marriage for the better by taking responsibility for our “planks” (see Mt. 7:3-5). I’m sharing today about one of mine that I found in doing the “Character Flaw Inventory.” If you didn’t […]

Got Truth?

But what do you ‘feel’ about it? and Linkup!
