What would you most like our youth to remember about you? I want them to remember me as the one that reminded them constantly that they are worthy of love, they must never give up and they must always lean on God. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
