I've been tasked with a...well a task. I have two weeks to come up with my story, or whatever story I'm supposed to tell to my group. To be fair, this was partially my idea, so I have no one to blame but myself. We're reading Remember God by Annie F. Downs. And I kind… Continue reading Has anyone seen hope?
I feel like if I start every post with, this has been a trying time, you may start to doubt my authenticity. But friends...2018 was brutal but 2019 has been coming in hot on its heels.
