What it's all about.

Where’s yours hiding? Or is it even hiding? Perhaps it’s sitting right there in the middle of your room. Perhaps it’s so big it’s disrupting your decor, nosing in your stuff, moving your things around… affecting your life. Then again, it might be small, still growing, an infant now but soon will outgrow the couch it hides behind.

While your elephant may not be the same color or size as my elephant, it’s still an elephant. It still keeps us from being what God wants us to be. If you don’t address the elephant in the room, it might just take over your eternity.


Yep. Like Always, They're Awesome.
