Letter to Lovers

In this journey called life, I have seen many young couples purpose in their hearts to walk out their lives as one.

When Is Safe Too Safe?

It was one of those nights on the Canadian prairies. The violent thunderclaps, flashing lightning and gale force winds had brought us to this place – hiding in the basement. Why the basement?
