Several hundred feet away from where she was at, her 8-year-old son, Damean, was on the ground after just being involved in a serious dirt bike accident that lef...

James 2:18 I had the privilege this week to participate with friends in some community ministry and I found a slip of paper with a little slogan or saying on it, a saying I consider simple and true, while at the same time layered with depth of thought.

I cashed out last week with a 12-3 record, which upped my overall mark to an outstanding 61-23 (.726).
