Stay the Course and Never Compromise!

In light of some of the recent posts and comments, I would like to share a few thoughts from my heart, but I want to do so by beginning with a story. Over five years ago, an unknown blogger started an unknown blog that would eventually become very well known with thousands of readers. The […]
