Rockford Reformed Church
Some things in our lives seem so insignificant that we pay little or no attention to them. But some seemingly little things make a very big difference in the health of our lives, our relationships, our marriages, and our families. Varying our course just a few degrees on a compass can, over miles, cause us to end up in an entirely different place. For several weeks, we're going to look at little thoughts, little habits, little actions, little words and little prayers that make a BIG difference in life. Understanding these little things, and putting them into action in your life, can, over time, transform lives, relationships, and even destinies. Join us, and bring someone you care about!
