November 18, 2018 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey Do you ever feel God is a million miles away? I am in one of those seasons. It started a couple of months ago.

October 21, 2018 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey I have spent the past few weeks presenting a case for staying in your marriage.

October 14, 2018 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey Here is the fantasy I brought into marriage: My future husband would be my soul mate, hand-picked by God to be perfect for me.

October 7, 2018 Grace ccmadmin by: Cris Corzine-McCloskey Here are some things I used to believe about myself. I thought I was patient, open-minded, loving, hard to offend, and selfless.
