Then Sings My Soul Book 3

On 11/14 Will Norrid wrote: I recently read Robert Morgan's latest collection of hymns and hymn-stories, Then Sings My Soul Book 3. This book, like its two predecessors, is attractive and user-friendly. The book contains stories from some great hymns of which you have probably never heard.

Finding Purpose Beyond Our Pain

Finding Purpose Beyond Our Pain

On 10/16 Will Norrid wrote: In Finding Purpose Beyond Our Pain, Drs. Paul Meier and David Henderson attempt to add to the conversation regarding God’s hand in the refining work of pain in our lives. Pain, they insist, is not always a bad thing, and in fact, maybe be the warning sign that motivates us to make much needed emotional ... Not too deep, not too bad
