Hello, Tomorrow

I had the joy of seeing my brother Andy on the last day of 2017 and the first day of 2018. We have many things in common as brothers and friends, but there are really two things that make us stand out from most other brothers. The first is that we both have major scars. […]

How to face your problems

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment.
