Some of the toughest times in my life were when I allowed myself to be distanced from God. I've never left the church, but there are times when I wasn't fully connected for various reasons. When this happened, I found myself making poor choices and making life more difficult than it needed to be. To keep this from happening again, I've tried to find resources that keep me grounded in God’s word, so that I don't stray too far. These resources are not a substitute for being engaged in a church, but can be a great way to supplement your learning or help you if you are not currently a member of a church for any reason.
