Saints Among Us
This series of devotions is meant to help us understand what it takes to move toward being a saint in our everyday lives. Hear stories of people like you and I who stood out above the rest. Learn about modern day saints and persecuted christians who too may be saints one day, as well as beautiful saints who started religious orders. May God bless you as you continue to strive toward sainthood in your life. Michelle Workman
