"Do you know Jesus?" I ask this question to almost every person I meet these days. From the lady who identifies as same-sex attracted at the drive-through window, to the balding millionaire loading up his car outside a high end shopping mall.

I'm 33, very happily married, with three amazing children, and I just went on my very first "Schoolies". It was a drug and alcohol fueled sea of youth, and I absolutely loved it.
