The fact that we lost two of our children; it was hard times. It is with the strength of the Lord that we get through it. Without our faith it would’ve been impossible.
How do you live out your faith? I try to follow the tenants that we are taught. I consider the decisions I make. We work with a grief recovery group. If we can help others who have gone through what we have gone through, and let them know to rely on the Lord, then we have served our purpose.
