Through by Sabrina Calhoun

I would lay on our hardwood floor in front of the record player for what seemed like hours listening to and singing the songs. Over the years, I have noticed that some of those same songs still play in the background of my mind during difficult times in my life.

New Role by JP Quianzon

As a person that prides himself in forming my own opinion on people, I said to myself, “I’m going to surround this guy with encouragement, positivity and treat him like he’s a highly valued member of this team. Lord, help me break this thing over him, starting today.”
