Recently, I was forced to stand by as my daughter's heart was crushed. I wanted so badly to "fix" things; however, the entire situation is completely out of my power to "fix." So each day I've stood by my sweet pie being the mother and friend she needs right now. If I could say anything…

So many groups claim that what we do and how we do it will bring us closer to God. When really there is nothing, outside of acceptance of Jesus gift of salvation, that we can do that will bring us any closer to him. There is nothing we can do to drag people into heaven…
