Calling: I think I have found mine, what about you?

What is your “calling”?
[A.K.A. Why you’re breathing.]
Merriam-Webster defines calling as:
-a stong desire to spend your life doing a certain kind of work

Have you ever felt God moving you in a direction you feel under qualified?

Buil”t” with the Boyces and the next chapter…

As of 9.11.12, we are proud owners of a beautiful home, mortgage free, paid for and built by our community. How to you even begin to say thank you?! We are beyond words grateful.

Our kids are settled and a sense of peace and calm has rested upon our home. It’s a deep exhale I have been craving for 3 years.
