Calm the Storm

Today I have just finished celebrating the 4th birthday of our sweet daughter. The pride and joy she brings is incomparable. While I celebrate the day she was born, it also brings back some tough memories for me because her birth brought on physical, mental, and even spiritual battles. Now, we are in the very […]
