The Disney+ release makes for an enjoyable movie night for a group of family or friends to sit down, relax and share a few laughs together without anyone having to think too hard.

The Cruciality of Owning Your Faith

Spiritual crises, as difficult as they can be in the life of a young Christian, are necessary for a person to truly understand and own their faith. Even though it was the most difficult period of my life, I wouldn’t hesitate to go through it again because I discovered what I truly believed and who I am. This is what I found during my own spiritual journey.

This verse from the Bible has brought me great inspiration in my own faith journey: “If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”  –Jeremiah 29:13     Photos courtesy of Madisyn House
