Sailing through the Storm (Pt. 1)

Still water, untouched and unmoved, almost appearing as glass, reaching far beyond the horizon into the unknown. Clear blue skies enable you to see the shore and the wind feels good on your skin.

My Christian Life as A Love Story (Pt. 1)

I like who I'm becoming and God is an inseparable part of that. As I've been developing, I have been trying to figure out how to explain to people who Christianity as a religion is flawed like all religions but Christianity as a faith is more than church on Sunday, it's a love story everyday.… Continue reading My Christian Life as A Love Story (Pt. 1)
