Truth is, I’ve been fighting a bad fibromyalgia flair this past week which equates to constant … Read More

Midwives of Transformation

Years as a slave to this world’s addictions, its vanity, pride, and lust, its wicked excuses, and the way it has broken the hearts of everyone that lives in and of it. It is the world and it’s ruler Satan that hurts us and lets … Read More
