You have a purpose.
There are so many ways you can grow in all areas of your life, and at any stage of your life. We talk about building an ironside--a defense--spiritually, physically, intellectually, and socially.
Doing something well takes practice and patience. On this show we ask family, friends, leaders, and heroes for help.
