If Not Us, Then Who? – It’s Just a Phase

This weekend we started a new series called It’s Just a Phase, So Don’t Miss It. Chances are if you have been around kids, you have heard those words used to describe the actions and attitudes they are displaying. Often it is said to give a parent hope. “It’s just a phase” is almost always […]
