The presence of medicine, is not the absence of God

The strong black woman, God and mental health I remember having a conversation with a friend about the increase in black women getting on YouTube confessing that they’ve been struggling with anxiety and depression.

The argument is that Christmas is pagan holiday and “true” Christians shouldn’t participate. Christmas is a pagan holiday For our purposes, a pagan […]
