Doubts and Demons and Driving with God

Hello again, Mary Adrienne here. I hope you’ll click on over to see my new post at Nashville Catholic Writers. We’ve been tuning our presentation and getting everyone pulling in the same direction and I think it will be a collection of writing that you’ll enjoy.

Doubts and Demons is my latest post there.

Here’s D and D. Many blessings on your day. MA
