But sometimes ”knowing it… Continue reading Beauty and Self-Esteem: the Point We’re Missing (Pt. 1, the Love of God)

“Beyond Priceless”: the Book that Speaks Truth to Real Emotions

Note: I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Emotions are real. Very real. Depression can block out our hope. Doubts can make us give up faith completely.
