Spiritual Foundations

Here’s a little encouragement for the week ahead:

“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians [4:19] (NKJV)

If you’re looking for a premium DIY solution for the most common legal situations then you’ll love this app called ShakeLaw.

If you're a freelancer, for example, you can generate agreements straight out of this app. There are a bunch of options included with ShakeLaw and I think it’s worth checking out.
