The Origin Story Found in Listen Up, Kids

How did we get here? When did we get so far off course? Did we ever really know where we were going or why we set out for this place? These are all relevant questions… that we often ask much later in the process that we would prefer – but it’s never too late.

The 14 Most Read 1Glories Blog Posts of 2014

Praise: For Hank! The Hurried Angel’s Sling
