Happy Christmas

For it is my belief, that the day this sweet baby boy came to the world- the world was changed forever. Jesus came to change the world. He came to bring hope and to bring love to the outsiders. He came to bring joy to the depressed, to rescue those who were hanging on by a wing and a prayer. He came for broken people, for those that people gave up on, for those that were deemed to be unlovable.

Daddy Issues

Fathers are necessary, life-changing important aspects to any child’s life; and their presence affects the outcome of their child’s relationships.
