A Friend and Example to Many –-Shane Hall
This week we are grieving the passing of a friend to our ministry, Shane Hall. We are grieving the hole that will be left behind in his house, in his church and in the lives he has touched--including ours.

And no doubt, I embarrassed him when I was a young wife, whether intentionally or not. These are all examples of doing our husbands harm... Read More
