Dirty Water


If you've got a well and the well has bad water, fixing the pump is not going to help what's in the well. That's the problem with a lot of self-help books. They tell you how to fix the pump, but they don't know how to tell you how to fix the water that's in the well. Until you fix that, things aren't going to get better for you.

You Weren't Created to Do Life Alone

Your #1 Purpose


Whenever we go through tough times, we are tempted to ask, "Why? Why? Why me? Why is this happening? Why are we going through this?" Even, "Why is God allowing this?" or "If God wants me to be happy, why is his happening?" Lots of people think God's number one purpose is for us to be happy.
