  • Shot Glass Prayers

    In Jamaica, we have a saying “suck salt through wooden spoon” that means to endure hardship, usually over a prolonged period.

  • Scales on our Eyes

    We all have traits about ourselves that we are not proud of, and consciously or sub-consciously try to hide from others around us.

  • Worse than a Slave  

    When Jesus gave us the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), He gave us four distinct instructions:
