I hope you love talking about desire as much as I do- for chocolate lava cake, that is. (Being married has made me aware of how often women bond by talking about foods they mutually love. Isn't that strange? But I digress.) If you’ve ever felt selfish for following you...

Do you ever feel afraid that giving your life to God will result in him making you do something you don’t want to do? Do you worry that his plan can’t make you happy? Do you avoid thinking or praying about putting God in the driver’s seat, and instead only give him wha...
