She taught me that I didn’t have to be a boaring Christian but I could a fun one. She introduced me to Christian rap, which is now one of my favorite genres of music.

That summer basically changed my life forever. If

When I first heard that we were learning about Romanticism, I thought that we would talk about love, cupids, and hearts. I was not looking forward to this project.
