The Gospel of Consumption.

Today I saw an old photo in my Pinterest file, and remembered an article that my husband recommended to me.

The 2 of them together make a post. I don`t even need to write anything further.

He’s the one who transforms the hearts of those who are open and can show us the way we were intended to live while we’re on the earth, regardless of the ways of the world.
