Faith

Me, being apparently the eternal optimist (that sometimes falls in to a deep dark pit of anxiety and despair) is wondering what it would take to bring back faith, to bring back hope to people where it has largely been lost. Where it has widely been cast aside as some kind of ugly byproduct of … Continue reading Faith

I don't have a lot of time at the moment. I have a full time job I am very thankful to have, a young child which I am even more thankful to have. I have a dog, a home and people to take care of and love. I don't have stacks of money and riches … Continue reading Plentiful Resources
