Do not get me wrong she can be the sweetest little 3 year old…

Home is where God is.

Your home is a sacred and special dwelling place. It is a place where those living in should feel safe and secure. You should feel loved and worthy in that home. Your home is also where your heart is and where your heart is so is your treasure.   What kind of home did you come from? Was it a loving home? Was it a home where a mother or father wasn’t present? Was it a home where you didn’t…
