Testimony: Forgiveness

I have a testimony or two; one is a search of forgiveness and the other is a search of thanks.
Testimony: Forgiveness.

I am who I am; I am a Christian!

My parents. Is this why I like photography and to goof around?

What does it take for me to be live up to being who I am?
Not a thing; I am who I am by birth.
I am part Swanson, Hook, Goodwin, Wise, Butler, Coon and a myriad of other names all smelted together in what you see in me. Continue reading
