“I never knew how to worship, until I knew how to love” – Henry Ward Beecher
“I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.” – A.W. Tozer

On my heart:
Worship is not just something you do, rather it is something you become. I pray that my humble offering of serving Him will become exactly the tool that He can use in my marriage, in my family, in my church, and in the Jerusalem He has placed me to serve. What a privilege!
