Top Ten

Time for a lighter post today. Below are ten quotes that have been very influential in my life and ministry. Since it is more blessed to give than to receive, I share them with you. Some are fun, some are serious, some will make you think, but they all have one thing in common: they are all true.

So, without further ado and in no particular order….
