Sometimes the questions and the thinking is in relation to new ideas, new goals or projects. Then I become paralysed and overwhelmed – where do I start? Here’s some of the questions that I have had this year –…

7 Roadblocks to Success

Which enemy do you battle with the most? We have a new series starting at church this week called “The Battle Begins”.
