One of the biggest problems with decking your girlfriend in the face is that it sends the wrong message.

I may not be able to trust him, but I could trust the Lord in him!

This may be a good start, but it’s just that…a start.

Standing in a dark Las Vegas hotel room with my ear cupped to the bathroom door, I heard a voice that I had never heard before. My body shook uncontrollably at just the glimpse of the depth of darkness my husband was entangled in.
