Today my daughter said to me, "God teaches us through lots of different people, sometimes from someone we don't expect." That's just what I was thinking... The author of Bitchin in the Kitchen, a popular blog I discovered recently, tells about her "chance meeting" with an American veteran. I was moved to the core. This… Continue reading How To Change The World
