I recently watched the movie Overcomer and it was fantastic! It's one of those films that stays with you long after you've watched it. It makes you think. It touches your heart. If you haven't seen it, please DO. You won't be sorry. I know I wasn't. It convicted me, encouraged me and reminded me that … Continue reading Who Are You?
With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share a funny story I have been working on for a submission. Entirely true, it is meant just for "Christmas blunder" ha ha's and no more!
