And Jesus Came And Spoke To Them, Saying, "All Authority Has Been Given To Me In Heaven And Earth, Go Therefore And Make Disciples Of All The Nations, Baptizing Them In The Name Of The Father And Of The Son And Of The Holy Spirit, Teaching Them To Observe All Things That I Have Commanded You; And Lot I Am With You Always, Even To The End Of The Age." Amen (Mt 28:18-20)

The Life of Rebekah Miller

Shattered Beauty

Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has a purpose, that the things you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Continue to persist and persevere."
