God’s Sense of Smell: Poop Stinks…

Day 8 of the Wild Kids, Wild God – 31 Days looking at God’s Heart Series.

Love’s Performance on the Test Drive

Day 7 of the Wild Kids, Wild God – 31 Days looking at God’s Heart Series.


It’s easy to love the loveable. Your best friend, your faithful pooch, your funny co-worker. But how about the un-lovely? That lady with the bad attitude at the check-out?
