The Author

Welcome! My name is Alyssa J Howard, and I am so glad you are here!

I occasionally watched the news and paid some attention to big stories, but all of that changed when the pandemic began. I found myself sucked into everything on social media. Perhaps it was due to the fact that I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands. Or maybe it was the ... Read More about How to Cope When Faith and Politics Collide (Part 2)

Even those that don't claim to be Christians know that forgiveness can bring freedom and peace. But how do we find the strength when it feels impossible to forgive?
