To all the Old Roads


To All the old Roads

For a person who is planning on at least trying to make a living off of words. I find it a struggle some days to put together the words to describe the last several years of my life.

This was in response to decades of attitudes towards people who had a touch of the Prophetic in there lives that the churches miss understood. People who if they had been encouraged and trained could have maybe changed the unfortunate course the county is now on. Continue reading
