Toilet Paper Shortages

Toilet paper shortages. In our series addressing the importance of talking to our children about godly interactions across racial and multi-cultural lines all I can think about are toilet paper shortages.

Prayers Offered in Faith – Praises

By Melissa Teten I sat in a room full of veteran Navigator staff with adult children. As they shared their personal prayer requests, so many were centered on their children.
