Keeping skeletons hidden or dressed up can be a tiring and daunting task. It seems like the more we try to cover up our pain the greater it becomes. So what is the cure? How do we rid ourselves of the things we keep in hiding?

If you are willing to journey with us, we will begin the process of unearthing what we have covered up and allow God to shine his light upon our darkness. Are you willing...
