• Living With Faith After Loss

    August 23, 2013

    I grew up in church.  Preacher’s daughter.  Yep.  Preacher’s daughter.  I grew up singing about Jesus and going to church more than anywhere else.  This was all I knew.  Faith.

Of course, like the other twenty eight years of my life, I will again celebrate the impressible man that my very own father is to me and his family.
