Backs in Search of Bones

Backs in Search of Bones

This past week at Teen Leadership Conference, high schoolers were asked to write about significant events . . .  in their lives in a way that would be a blessing to someone else. What they came up with was mostly a cry to be parented by someone with a backbone or a hair on their chest. Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it . . .
