What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Ah…Valentine’s Day…the celebration of love…ERRRK! Put the brakes on! For many, it’s a day of disappointment in a marriage that leaves us wanting.

Friendship and the Grace of God
by Michael Haykin

Ever since you were in the fourth grade, you wanted to become a dentist. At that tender age, what inspired you to practice dentistry? Growing up, I spent a lot of time in my dentist’s office. I liked it there. I remember it being a happy place. I trusted everyone there and felt like they […]
