my journey living for christ

I hat—– very much dislike those words; that thought. Im very impatient to a fault. I blame it on mother because I say I get my wild child from her.

Peace in the Fall

The last two months have grown us up and out. Busy is an understatement and change is but a laughter filled with large eyes.... We met our 2018 team this October, face to face and heart to heart. I can not explain how detailed our God is in His training. This team is ridiculous! Seriously,....…
