How can you be an active participate in your life? How do we find freedom from traditional jobs, relationships and viewpoints? And why do we feel the need to conform to normal routines?

I'm talking all about anti-American ideals, French cooking and learning how to cultivate relationships with others, God and myself.

It was always expected in my Christian community. But now that I'm in the community of the world... I'm learning that I have to find out how to mean the words I choose t...
