Creating a database to combat writer’s block

So I have this awesome idea for curing writers block, but first, can I be super honest? I don’t really suffer from writer’s block, but hey, I’m not normal. Yet with that aside, what helps me most is the way I formulate an idea. Sometimes I focus on an abstract concept such as lost love. … Continue reading

Proverb 28:27: “He who gives to the poor will lack nothing.” I enjoy tithing. Why?
