“For When I am Weak, Then I Am Strong” 2 Corinthians 12:9-11

One of life’s lessons that I’ve learned recently is to not look at all the negative things that have gone wrong in it but instead, look at the way those negative things have made your life better in a positive way.I haven’t always thought this way.

When I found out my moms diagnosis had a timeline to it, I knew I had to startContinue reading “The “D” Word”
