5 Truths to Defeat Fear

5 Truths to Defeat Fear

“I can’t swim!” were the words offered in a barely audible whisper.

My son’s closest friends had gathered for his birthday party at the lake, and the excitement built as they each donned a life jacket.

The Cure for a Bad Attitude

Have you ever had one of those days where frustration has threatened to over take you? That’s where I sat, on the verge of tears.
