Loving Boundaries

Boundaries are important in every facet of life. This is something I am constantly reminded of during my day-to-day encounters.

I Expected

We all can think back to a time when we expected that something would go differently. Even things we have prayed for did not turn out the way that we had imagined in our minds. When I was a teenager, one of the hardest periods of my life was when the healing I expected for […]
