A story of seeing God in the simple things by Alyssa Robinson:
I walked up a hill into a one-room chapel that comfortably
holds about 80 people. This was my first time walking into this chapel, and I
didn’t know what to expect. My heart was palpitating with anticipation. Questions

A story of grace in parenting from Camille May :
My son, Hayden, was born three weeks early. If you know him now, you might find it hard to believe how tiny he was then! As a result of being early, he had some bumps along the way in the feeding department – not true these days.
For the first few weeks of his life, I took him to the doctor every other day to be weighed. Each visit revealed that he had lost a few more ounces. I will never forget the morning that my mother went...
