Sometimes we put our faith aside. Writing it, it seems like such a silly idea. Q. Wouldn’t you cling to your faith when the world around you crumbles?A.

I’ve so far successfully eliminated alcohol, energy drinks (after consuming at least 1 a day for the last 8 years) and by the end of the month I will have cut out soft drink (soda)… Continue reading The Path Ahead
