The Cost And Consequences Of Accountability

After having written the previous post about accountability, I felt I should expound further, sharing my own personal struggle that our family endured. You see, I know first hand the cost and consequences from accountability. It was 2013. Hardest year of my life. Hardest year for our whole family. Kyle (my husband) and I were […]

The Life And Death From Accountability
