Memo from God


This ministry is tough. At times, it can take a lot out of you. Take some time out during your day to refresh and join Julie Parton for a short devotional titled "Memo from God." Back by popular demand after being offered at Heartbeat's 2012 Annual Conference, use this time to take a few minutes to reflect on our role in this ministry as we put another election behind us and look to what the future may hold.
