Book Review: How We Love | Milan & Kay Yerkovich

This is the book I’m probably most proud of finishing. While it’s not excessively long and it’s certainly not boring, this book takes a lot of determination to get through.

The main theme of the book is telling God you’re willing to let Him do anything with your...

Don’t take anything personally. Don’t make assumptions. Always do your best. The...
