By Don Doran / 3 weeks ago

We might all see the same thing but when we tell what we have seen there will be very few times that two stories are the same. We each view an incident from a different perspective. So is it with the storms of life! We each have a different perspective on each storm. It is […]

By Stephanie Hardesty (Steffanie H. Russ) / 6 months ago
