The power of your story

One day, there is going to be an adulterous woman that God places in my life. A woman that has hurt and betrayed everyone she knows. A woman filled with lies and manipulation and a deep need to feel like she's in control. A woman who puts on the air of love toward others, but [...]

Lover like Israel – April 22, 2013
