What kind of soil are you? (Ep 57)

We were created for more than we have yet to imagine. But often, we settle for so much less because we fail to make a few simple yet powerful choices. It is time we choose to take our place in the Kingdom of God. 

Episode Breakdown:
0:30 Tailgate Talks w/ Donna & Monica
1:30 The Choice is Yours w/ Jon
23:30 A loaded truck & NEWS!
