What did you want to be when you grew up?

What can I do about it?

One of my favorite that our family has used through the years came from my cousin, Brad. It was, How can mine help it?" He said it when something happened where he felt helpless. He knew someone should do something, but [...]

It's Front Line Friday and it is my privilege to introduce you to Diane Drake. Diane is a wife, mother and an active member of Lost Mountain Baptist Church in Powder Springs, Georgia.
