Christian Reflections Placeholder

“Life is hard.” It’s a saying nearly as old as life itself.

The reality of that statement pervades every portion of life. Thankfully, though, the difficulties that life presents don’t always mean “the end.” In fact, the struggles we endure in life often give us more strength and focus, so that we can grow and even prosper.

Charles Christian anchors the evening news for News-Press NOW and also serves as an ordained minister for United Methodist Churches in Gower and Helena, Missouri.
