Life Apps for the week of 11/16/14 to 11/22/14

A way to live:

“If it doesn’t kill you , you will grow by it.” Life brings stresses and strains. Face them and cope with them. You will grow by it. Don’t forget that there really is a Spirit working in us to help us to endure and to grow.
[Suggested by Matthew 25:14-30]
