Welcome to Two42 Summer Devotionals. Life is busy. We get it. Between school, work, traveling, and finding time for community, it can be hard to make time for yourself. But the summer offers a unique opportunity. It is a chance to breathe. To create some margin. We hope you will join us on this journey.

We are going to post 3 devos a week for the next 8 weeks. They will loosely follow along with the series we are doing on Thursday nights, “Goliath Must Fall” by Louie Giglio. But even if you can’t make it on Thursday nights, we hope you will use these devos are a bit of fresh air for your soul. Enjoy.
