If you’re reading this post, there’s a possibility that you haven’t gotten to writing your faith goals/new year’s resolutions/whatever you wanna call them yet, or maybe you haven’t finished up on them yet.

Just this week, we finally completed the purchase and transfer of ownership of our house after almost one year of getting everything necessary for it to happen.
