Building Self-Worth Through Common Sense, Faith and Acceptance
"A person's self-image affects his or her ability to hope, dream, dare, and achieve. I seek to encourage and build the self-worth of another through common sense, the teachings of faith, and unconditional acceptance. And I do that in practical ways through my preaching, writing, and photography. I continually assure people of the beauty and goodness of God's creation-especially the human person."
