Guests: Ashley Mazelin, Jake Roberson and Brandon Wilson

[20:50] -

Did you buy four prayer journals only to write a paragraph in each before throwing them under your bed? You may be overthinking your prayer life.

Guests: Paul E. Miller

[19:35] -

Want your relationship with God to be intimate, conversational and transformational? Paul shows us how to get started.
