Two Movies To Add To Your List

Two Movies To Add To Your List

Hey, guys! Yeah, still no fall update… I’m continuing to pray through some of those big decisions. This week I’d like to share two movies which have totally inspired me to get back to my writing. 🙂 1.) Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice) As a wild youth, elementary school student Shouya Ishida sought to […]
