Time, memories, experiences shape how we see things we so deeply love or loved. How about your marriage? The birth of your child? Hopes, dreams, desires now smashing into reality.

But as biblical counselor Paul Tripp explains, our life is not made in one or two glorious moments, but is made up of the tens of thousands of seemingly mundane moments that transpire every day.
