Tibi Necesitas Es

Remarks from State Deputy Jason Esteve at the State Organizational Meeting in Prattville on July 7, 2018. When I became a part of the state council, there are things I never thought I would say.

If we are honest, we know that we men are not that good at “coming away…to a deserted place” to “rest a while.” In fact we know that over 80 percent of us check our smart phone even before brushing our teeth in the morning, and spend time on it in the last hour before we go to sleep. Like the apostles, we focus on getting a lot done. But let’s imagine what would happen if we truly r...
