Faith has direct applications for going to church, praying, reading the bible, serving, giving, worship, et al. But, beyond that, It’s just not always clear nor does even feel ‘spiritual’. Yet, if we believe God is All-Present, then it stands to reason faith intersects with our time, or as parents, our spending, and in marriage.
