This is not okay. That's obvious. When I watch stories like this, something inside my heart begins to swell. First with anger and confusion, how could this really be happening?!
Give the gift of unconditional love and faithfulness to the women around you.
Of all the things my parents did right, praying for me bubbles to the surface of my memory.
