Recently, I got a chance to chat with Dylon, who also attends Core Creek Community Church with me. Dylon’s a guy that just radiates positive energy every time I see him.

Or maybe you are one of the few that actually loves what you do now and can’t think of anything else in the world you’d rather be doing.
