    When someone is doing something wrong and it is my responsibility to speak up, I feel angry. Maybe a godly anger – the push to engage. But – the speaking, the communicating God’s words – needs a big, heaping spoonful of gentleness or it’s not going to be helpful.

    God bless you and Dean.
    Love & prayers,
    Mrs. Dana
