Face of Dystonia- a remarkable friend and woman

This lady right here… …she’s one of my dearest friends. An unlikely pair we are. We met when I was 16 and going on my first mission trip with a bunch of highschoolers. She was a leader.

A soup by any other color…

I cannot blame him for having an immediate aversion to ingesting this, because to be perfectly honest, I had my own doubts. I purposefully ladled an unproportionately small helping into my bowl for fear that with the first bite I would spew it across the room and thus ruin any chances of my children ever… Read more…
