Jesus Christ is perfect theology. For anyone who wants to know the will of God,...– Bill Johnson (excerpt from Face to Face with God)
Let's Just Be Real Here, My Family Is Ridiculous:
Mom: Wow! Look at this beautiful road! What a forest! The trees are so big and dense! Lauren, if you crash your car out here, no one will EVER be able to find you. Wow!

(While checking in at our hotel in Texas)

Tori: TURN YOUR BLINKER ON!
