It Began in the Garden

It Began in the Garden

It is never fun to invest in someone, love them deeply and in turn they disappoint you.  You learn that quickly as a parent. And being one, has taught me so many things about myself and how God sees me as His child.  Eric and I choose to invest, love, guide and encourage for our […]
