Are you wealthy?

One of the lifelong (dare I say world long) struggles with humans is understanding and/or finding our life purpose.  We, as people, lay awake at night trying to decipher what the hell we are here for.  We look to prayer, our pastors, the bible, society, each other- yet we still continuously ruminate, worry and fret. … Continue reading
