Christian Radio Produces Brave Volunteers

brave-volunteersThe new Disney-Pixar movie "Brave" came out over the weekend.  I know a handful of college-aged girls who plan to go see it together.  Rumor is, their night out includes crimping and teasing their hair in attempt to resemble the title character's unruly locks.  Some may question their good sense for publicly parading with "crazy hair" where they are certain to attract attention.  I call it -- appropriately -- brave.

Recently, I witnessed how Christian radio equipped a group of people to bravely do the following:

  1. Jump -- not step -- out of your comfort zone in serving the disability community by fully ...

Fathers Matter!

"Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad." - Anne Geddes
