Ask Alma: A one-night stand with his brother
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Dear Alma, Ten years ago, I relocated to a new city. I wanted to meet new friends, so I joined an online dating service. One man in particular I really liked and slept with the same week.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Let’s talk a little bit about freedom. I’m referring to the freedom afforded all of us through Christ. There is something quite liberating when you know or realize that you have been “set free.” Have you ever thought about what that really means? The word “release” comes to my mind. Some claim relief is how they
