Mental Health and Faith

One of my all time favorite pastors is Chuck Swindoll… He preaches with humor and eloquence, love and truth while showing me who God really, that God He loves me and then Chuck guides me to know God better… In a recent email Chuck talks about endearing faith… And it’s totally CR (to me at …
