--Matt Hammitt

1/25/07: "As Christians, we have eternal hope. We know our destiny. But we shouldn’t be afraid of  saying, 'I’m having a really bad day.' Face your pain, don’t run from it. Be real with your  emotions—and lean back into the hope you have in Christ. Let’s embrace His strength during  our weakness."
