3 Fantastic Books That Changed My Life in 2019

Good books Africa Boy

Last year was the biggest of my life. I experienced large amounts of growth in certain areas and witnessed several massive changes.

When we, as Christians, take the time to spend thirty minutes in Jesus, our days and hearts are affected. Guys, I cannot emphasize this enough. Reading the Bible in the morning is crucial to our life as Christians. There. I tried to emphasize it. Setting a Biblical reading goal and sticking to it is the best way to get closer to Him.
