Daddy!

It only takes a little faith…

“It only takes a little faith to move a mountain.” Even If – Mercy Me Jesus spoke of having childlike faith… but what is it? We saw an example of this type of faith in a recent post about a boy who spoke with God about the loss of a special pet. (The Faith of Read More …
