The ultimate creator and chef, God, birthed inside of me my abilities and inspiration from the very beginning.

Time in your day to pray

Time in your day to pray

Today is the first Thursday of May, which is annually the National Day of Prayer. So I thought I would take today to share with you some tips on making prayer apart of your daily life.
