When You Have to Leave the Shore

I have two major phobias: Roaches and sharks. Roaches - they are just creepy. They show up out of nowhere, scurry around at night, and well...they crunch when you kill them. Ew!   And then sharks! They can show up out of nowhere too! (well, in the ocean that is), they seem to scurry around the

Need Some Encouragement?

About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world.
