Stuck In My Head…

Ever since Jennie Allen’s talk at IF this weekend about going SMALL instead of BIG with spreading God’s truth, there’s been a song stuck in my head by Francesca Battistelli called “He Knows My Name.” I’ve really felt as if God has laid these two specific lines on my people-pleasing soul, and I wondered ifContinue reading “Stuck In My Head…”
