Running Toward the Sun!

Let me keep it real with y’all — If you know me [like really know me], you know that I am a writer. I write for solace, for love, for healing, for fun, for God, for friends, for everything. But to be perfectly honest, I don’t remember the last time I wrote anything. I made it…

Thank You, Brandon Williams!

I tried to find a quote that would be fitting but there were none suitable or sufficient. The only words that could truly show my appreciation is … Thank You!
