“You Made Me”

You made me. You made me worry, hope, and stew. You made me visit the doctor when I had stuff to do. You made me work harder and longer at my job to provide for you. You made me give up sleep, work, time, money, leisure, trips, opportunities, fun, and dates You made...

“The Mormon Church is Seriously Antiquated”

Book Review: “Finish” by Jon Acuff
