Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
From a young age I was taught by my parents to say “please” and “thank you.” When I was ten years old my mother died, and my grief was profound. Her death left a vast emptiness in my heart, and at that age I simply could not comprehend it all....
I can rest assured that God’s love will sustain me.
