Home Schooling


  The final few weeks of this past semester, I embarked on analyzing the leadership of a man I once believed to be a great man of God. This man was a well known leader to the community I was raised in. He was also a recognized leader among many others within the larger conservative Christian community my family followed when I was a child, who have all fallen in recent years to the blinding light of public exposure revealing...
