Where's the Remote? by Holly Crain, Single Parent Director, FBC, Houston, TX
I’m sure you’ve heard that in your house many times!
It’s a super frustrating moment when you’re ready to sit at the end of a long day and watch your favorite TV program only to realize that the remote control is misplaced. We want to be able to sit in our comfy chair and control at least the TV because life gets to the point of being uncontrollable…even the dog won’t listen anymore! Read More
