Hi friends! I appreciate you stopping by today.

Below you’ll find my notes for Lisa Harper’s message from Elevation Church this weekend (6/28/2020). It’s titled Hope Is In Our DNA.

She really provided a lot of new perspectives for me personally on some passages in the Bible, and I pray that she does the same for you.

As always, I take my notes live – context is necessary…go watch the message!
