Fear Exposed. Day two...

One of the responsibilities a good father assumes is to teach his children to face their fears and to push through them. This is true for the Christian and non‐Christian father alike.

Have you ever had a reaction in your body to something completely unknown to you at the time?

Propaganda Has Just Enough Truth to be Believable

Fear Exposed. Day nine...
