The Power of a Latte

I know all our families are imperfect. The older I get, the more it seems that if you can talk about the imperfection, the hard things, and even repent over the things that were hurtful (not that it makes everything better, but it brings things to light that need to be brought out of the… Continue reading The Power of a Latte

Finding Freedom: A Pride Month Devotion

I have made it a practice these past few years to spend time during the month of June to purposely write about how I see passages of scripture differently now.
