Focus for a Week - Saturday & Sunday
A scripture and a song to help us to focus
for 10 minutes each day of the week
The challenge is to listen to the song, read the verse and to spend 5 minutes focusing on our Heavenly Father and on His Son, Jesus Christ, every day this week.
That's just 10 minutes each day.
Each day I will add a new song and a new scripture.
If you have done this all week, I'm impressed!
