Ministering to Orphans :: 11 Ways You Can Get Involved on the Local Level

Some people have no idea what they want to be when they grow up—and they’re well into their twenties and thirties. That’s not the case for Georgia Reagan.

I’m not disciplined enough.” Truth be told, a lack of discipline does show up in my work-at-home … [Read More...]

You never forget the crappy days. As much as you want to, you can't. I used to see this as a curse but now I see it as a blessing, for it's important for me to remember how far I've come.
