Lookin’ for Love

As I’m writing this on a Friday afternoon at 4:00, it’s almost officially the weekend, the time of the week that in my former love junkie days was meant for man hunting.

Hilltop Mission Trip

A legion of roundtops covered in black tablecloths consumed the ballroom. My friends and I plopped our belongings down at a table in the back. The room squawked with the chatter of over 250 ministry leaders, speakers and authors. It was August of 2015. I had recently been approved to become an alliance partner with […]
