I’m slowly working my way through the book You Can, You Will: 8 Undeniable Qualities of a Winner by Joel Osteen.

O Me of Little Faith…

Image credit: tpsdave, Pixabay

I’ve been intentionally quiet the last few days. Perhaps my lack of an immediate, definitive and public reaction in the wake of last Friday’s news marks my lack of qualification as a blogger. In fact, I’m honestly still not ready to write publicly on that topic. You’ll find many on the Catholic Channel here discussing [Read More...]
