Cost and Admission

I’m going to explore the unexpected ways my faith has been inspired and reaffirmed in my doctoral studies. Primarily, I’m going to look at how many of the things psychology teaches us about perception end up affirming Scripture. It turns out God knew what He was doing when He designed us. Who knew?!?
