Favorite Bible Verse: Ephesians 2:8-10 - For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is a gift from God - not works so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do.
