At age three, Kristy was cooking before she knew how to read; she was self-taught in the operation of the stove. She "cooked" by standing on kitchen chairs, boiling noodles, draining them, and tasting spices to "flavor" her meal. No one showed her how to cook she just did it out of necessity.

There’s a much broader sphere of influence available through written words. (less)

Mental Health Misconceptions and Religion

Mental Health Misconceptions and Religion
