2015: a year in review

3.09.2016 |

There were so many incredible things that happened in 2015.  There were several joyous occasions; however, there were a few losses sprinkled throughout the year.  It is nothing short of God's grace that we have made it through another year, and it is God's grace that will continue to sustain us in this new year.
