Ardent Charity

  Last fall, in my job as Publications Specialist for my campus’ ministry I was put in charge of a biannual publication sent to donors.

What You Don’t See

I have struggled with this myself. For years I was a competitive dancer and when I went to college and wasn’t competing I struggled … More Who am I?
