New Episode of Plugged In: "Finding Joy in Waiting"

Cara Morales believes that waiting is a necessary part of life and that if we embrace it with the right attitude it not only makes us stronger — it leads us to Christ.

Cara gives us three practical tips that will focus our hearts and lives on the expectant hope of Jesus in the days leading up to His coming this Christmas.
