Hey there! Next month I’m organizing a Worship service for all the area campus ministries called Gloria. Gloria is a gathering Christians of all backgrounds for a time of worship of our God.

And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 1 Cor. 12: 5 (nasb) This verse always inspires me! It’s going to be… Read more

I have 9 at the time of writing this and I’m working on a new piece with a friend of mine this week which will hopefully make it to an epidermis near you soon. But why do people get tattoos?

The Following is a sample chapter from a book I’m Working on… Please let me know what you think!-Billy It all started with a goat. At least that’s how the legend goes.
