This week I share with you how my toddler’s complete meltdown can be linked with two important Christian ideas: 1) Total Depravity and 2) the Holy Trinity. Both are essential to make sense of life’s most challenging problems. To learn more about Total Depravity check out these blog posts.

3. Husband, Wife, Marriage
4. Rain, Ice, and Humidity
