Punch Me, But Don't Massacre Me With Your Words

Susan Thom

Many of us remember getting hit with the "belt" or slapped, or spanked. We don’t feel the pain any longer, and the memory is not often painful, unless severe abuse was rendered. However, words remain in our minds forever. The hurtful and demeaning sounds still reverberate in our minds and never go away. I know my father hit my siblings and I with the belt on occasion, but I don’t recall the exact situations. I do,.



Boost Your Blog's Credibility By Sourcing


Why do you write a business blog? Is it because you have a need to share your thoughts with a wider audience than the cat in your lap or your spouse (I hope so since it's a business blog)?

Ngozi Nwoke

How many people do you know whose lives were prophesied about before they were born? Jesus Christ is one of them. In His case, virtually everything about His life was prophesied long before He was born! What does this mean? It surely shows He is not a fake and He means business.
