Even before I reached the age of driving, I’ve always been scared of driving. It’s amazing how people could manoeuvre through tight corners

Depression is a very popular topic in our world today and needs to be taken seriously. According to the World Health Organization, depression will be the 2nd highest medical cause of disability by the year 2030, second only to HIV/AIDS.

On Saturday the 26th, I was given the opportunity to speak to teenagers in my church. They had a 2 day programme and though I didn’t go the first day which was Friday (was at work), the one I experienced on Saturday was wonderful and I learned a lot. My favourite part of it all was questions the teenagers asked. You could tell that they needed to understand several things from sex, relationships,
