Deep Restoration, Part 2

Deep Restoration, Part 2

I am continuing a review of John Eldredge’s Walking the Dead book.

I am still in Chapter 7 and Walking the Dead by John Eldredge.

We are Misunderstood

John Eldredge delves into the insults and injuries we all have experienced.

Did your family believe in you?
