Christian Purpose and Calling: Found.

I attended a Christian church service recently about discovering our purpose.

But, oh fellow Christian, I’m compelled to share three things that caught my attention recently.  I believe Christians who do yoga would want to know.  These voices we care about hearing.  Kids in school do yoga.  At our excellent public school the two-hundred little kindergarteners… Continue reading Why Christians’ Yoga Matters
