Live by the Truth!

Several years ago, while working for a company in Texas, I met a middle-aged Russian woman who was on-loan to our office to conduct some training.  She was beautiful, happy, outgoing and easy to work with.  During some down time, while several of us were sitting… Continue Reading “Live by the Truth!”
