What is Your Mission

by Karl Ihfe

What is your mission? Do you ever think about that?  I believe most people don’t.  And if I’m being honest, I’d have to lump myself in that category as well. I can get so focused on getting through my day that I don’t stop to consider the purpose and direction of it in the first place. Read more…



The God of More

by Matthew Benfield

Made for More Through Friendspeak

by Betty Mullican
