Hey, party people!

This song sums up my approach to life. People wonder how I can be so open about myself in writing. It’s because it ain’t about me. This is God’s life. The only thing that matters in my trivial existence is my ability to turn trials into testimony.
Thanks for hanging out again. I hope you enjoyed the letter. Until next week, be cool, be kind, be creative, be yourself. Love, Craig
