Do you have a “yes” in your spirit?

The Qualities of My Favorite Coffee Shop and Someone’s (Potentially) Favorite Church

I’ve been asked this question at least three times in the past month. Here’s the latest inquiry (edited for the purposes of this blog): Hi Arron, How do you do it? You serve as a minister, raise a family, run triathlons, and still find time to write books. I am in a similar boat. I […]
