A number of months later and in light of my understated revelation, the Lord has continued to order my steps and to demonstrate his presence in my life as God has bestowed the gifts of experience and wisdom. Through God's grace and the Lord's guidance I now share Thirty Moments of Vision. So tune in and stay tuned as the moments unfold to fortify your understanding of a Savior-centric focus.
