I want to be free. I want to live. I want to grow!
Dear Friends, there are three things on my mind today:
1. I want complete freedom from every kind of captivity.
I want to continually know the truth – the truth that sets free. I want to take every thought captive to obey Christ. I want to be free in every way!
