One: It reminds me of a worship song that is absolutely beautiful.

How Does Obeying God’s Rules Give Me More Freedom?

First blog post as I am back in the States for the summer! Woot woot! *happy dance*

It was close to the deadline for our submission and we had to go around and summarize our project in one word, giving the overall theme of the story.
