Now on to the Link Roundup.

  • We Don’t Talk About It Christian; Inspirational; on Depression
    Years, decades have passed. And I still struggle. Struggle with the self perceptions.

  • Why I Hate Surrender Christian; Inspirational
    One of Satan’s most brilliant lies is that if you surrender something to God, you’ll receive something less beautiful in return.
