“Being strong means you avenge any wrong done to you. If someone hits you or pushes you, you have to push back harder.

Evolving Personally Always Involves the Death of Something

Interesting fact about me. As a youth pastor for 36 years I have never read the book I Kissed Dating Goodbye. Never. I knew the moment I saw it that it was bunk. I have long been a believer in dating. I write all about that over on Brave Dating Coach. I wasn’t even tempted […]
