Today's StreamingFaith.com devotional is about holiness. I address the different ways misunderstanding what holiness truly is and how it can impact a family with It's in My Blood. Naomi, Rosalyn's mother, is a combination of women I know who ascribed to the importance of the "outward appearance" of holiness.
