A modern day prophet and Gods work in pioneering a way to bring light and life through His Son Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit to pave a new mental health plan that makes clearer the very fine line and all the loopy ideation and highlights the genius mind and the intelligence of His grace and mercy given through a modern day prophet a pioneer for mental health in a new light and a new golden rule.
