I love summer! It's a great time to not only eat watermelon, but also to catch up on some great bucket list items.
And if your bucket list looks like mine, you're going to love what I'm about to do. I'm going to give you links to some of my favorite books, podcasts and online courses in hopes that you might soak them in as you enjoy this season.
We did this course together with our Prayer Clinic team during 2020 when we were separated from each other due to Covid. It was SO good! And, it's FREE!! Here's the link:

Then they joined us in our 2nd service where my husband Tom and I delivered a message that we called "Unburdened by Unleashing the Power of Prayer in the...
