Thanksgiving Turkey!

I’m working today, but it’s a fun day! Today we are making turkeys!! I did a lot of prepping for a potential of 72 patients at a psychiatric hospital. Keep in mind that some people come into the hospital for suicide or self-harm, so it is not safe to have a whole bunch of peopleContinue reading “Thanksgiving Turkey!”

One of the gifts that I received when I was licensed as a minister on October 1st, was a $200Continue reading “Change is Here”

Recompense Dream

I had an odd dream about my father, but it wasn’t a bad dream. If you have heard or read my testimony, you will know that I suffered extreme sexual abuse, maybe even some would consider it torture, at the hands of my father as a child. He wasn’t all bad, though, and the abuseContinue reading “Recompense Dream”

I’m going to turn thingsContinue reading “Turn Around”
