SOME

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 John 1:4 It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.

Face To Face

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 John 1:12 I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink.
