Titus 3:5

Happy Easter, friends!

This holiday is the joyous celebration of what our Savior did for you, for me, for us all.

Jesus Christ came to save us!  He conquered death.  And we’re given life.

That’s My King:

May your day be full of joy.

Last Monday I shared my workout plan for the week ahead – I always do this but don’t necessarily follow it to a T – it’s a guide, a plan.  Somedays I follow what’s scheduled, and some days I don’t, but by planning ahead I make physical activity a priority. You can compare the two […]
