*Before you read, this was written and sitting in my drafts folder for the longest time. Enjoy.* This weekend, I am fully immersing myself in the glory and salvation of God. As a newfound Christian, I can tell you that this journey was not an easy one. If you had asked me ten years ago [...]
Hey Allie, or should I dare say "Alyssa," Let's get something straight. Who you used to be in your teens and who you are now are two completely separate people, let me tell you.
