But back to the blog…) When I think about regret, I think about one night during my senior year of high […]

How can I overcome fear with courage?

Love makes us do dumb things. I know from first-hand experience. I met my wife during my first year of seminary. She was attending the church where I was on staff. We got to know each other as she became involved in a program I was leading. Like any couple in the 21st-century, our relationship […]
