I would (and still do) argue about nuanced things people over look in order, not to prove why my interpretation was correct but, to show that … Continue reading Rainy Day Books
Last week was my wedding anniversary. The past eight years have felt at least 16 years long, and at the same time five minutes. They have been the greatest and hardest years of my life, and the Evangelical Church did little to nothing to prepare me for it.
