Praxis, a fancy word that means skill. When confronted with the trials of life, we have choice. We have agency. Through Praxis, a weekly blog, Dr. Helms Pickett’s transparency will give you clarity. You will learn tools to engage despite your present circumstances. Praxis offers Biblical application to daily life. Just as the Lord told Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.” (Exodus 14:15) Praxis admonishes you to “move on” and onward to what God has ordained for your life. Start your Monday off with the boost you need without the added caffeine!
