I don’t …

Fight Sexual Immorality And You Will Lose

It was around this time last year in January that I went to Puerto Rico for vacation. I was really excited to go. My first language is Spanish, and they use American currency there, so I thought it would be such a cool experience. I tend to be very economical with my money (call it “cheap” if you want to …

The last time I thought about hooking up was yesterday. I sometimes go through these seasons where I feel my flesh trying to get the best of me.
