30 Things in 30 Years: Faith
So one of my features will be to showcase 30 things I have learned in thirty years. Many of us know 30 is a pivotal age for most anybody, but it’s important to remember that if we're not learning some things along the way, what are we doing?

And then, we shouldn’t be surprised when it does come. Think about it, you feed anything poison, it’s bound to die. Some of us draw faith from a Higher Power, some from communal fellowship, some from silent and still meditation. Whatever you see fit, think on some good things and know it’s coming!
