I've been trying to nail down why it touches my heart and I think I've recently figured that out. … Continue reading Moana, the Christian Life, and My Mom
I'm sure this analogy has been made before: Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups; it has its downs. Sometimes it throws you for a loop and all you can do is hang on tight. At times, there is a steep incline and you feel you are making progress to the top, … Continue reading Roller Coaster
