The Pornography Epidemic

Orange is the new blessing
I had to wear orange. I like the color; it's in my color wheel as a flattering wardrobe choice. An orange jail jumpsuit, however, was never a choice for me. Instead, it was a consequence for a bad choice. I made a mistake. Who doesn't? I'm a sinner. We're all sinners.

The seasons of dating and marriage
