Years ago I went to a church I really loved. I loved that they concentrated on loving the community. They went out not only on Sunday's but also during the week to help people who were less fortunate or who were in need.

To me I'm still the 18-year-old kid trying to figure stuff out in the world of people who already … Continue reading Strength
We love Cs job. It's a tough place to work though. I haven't been posting because I am still trying to navigate him working third shift. I'm finally figuring it out.
