Today, All Souls Day, our family takes time give thanks for and share stories about family members and friends who have helped us along our Christian journey.
The day is finally here: October 27th. It’s the publication date for Growing Christians, the first book we created as the Grow Christians community. Last week I shared a sneak peek inside the book on the Feast of Saint Luke the Evangelist, and today I’d like to share why we wrote it.
