Justin Kollmeyer's picture

I love stories that reveal far more than what is on their surface. As a matter of fact, Jesus loved stories that revealed far more than what was on their surface.

Here’s a story for your mid-summer reading. I pray you’ll be drawn into it, so that it can reveal to you the Truth beyond its surface. Read More»
