For more of me, I’m on Instagram and Twitter, and I write regularly for Release the Women and Oxfam America.

    I’m glad I found your blog. I have been having difficulty understanding the techno digital world. I use a small world of it, but everything else is a blur. I like your blog it gives me some ideas. May God use you richly Elizabeth in Kosovo.
