Back in Seattle 6 weeks ago , my heart was restless and it was hard to find peace. My day was spent in sections – time for God was at daily mass and a few random prayers throughout the day. The rest of the day was spent doing whatever I […]
Before Paul and I moved to Covecrest, a friend of ours named Jon, who had also been a Life Teen missionary, called Paul on the phone. I overheard Jon telling Paul that he’s excited for us to be going to Covecrest and that he believed that I would receive healing […]
