His Words to Comfort Not Mine (Michelle D. Howe)

I truly have no words to offer you right now because I’m hurting and grieving the loss of a very dear encourager in my life.  She was one of my biggest cheerleaders and I probably never told her that.  I’m struggling to find purpose again and move forward.  As just as I write this, God [...]
