Who Am I? Gifted!

This past Sunday we continued our fascination with mosquitoes (you’ll have to check out last week’s podcast to see where that’s coming from). Remember – all it takes is one and you’ll know it! Yes, even li’l ol’ me can make a difference in this great big world.Which was where […]

Who Am I? A Saint!

“Hi, I’m Brian and I’m an alcoholic.”“Oh, stink! I’m such a total loser!”“Grandpa, watch me – I’m Spiderman!!“ That’s how some people will identify themselves. Maybe at a support group meeting.
