The National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer is a day when many people across the United States will join together and ask God to bless our country. We live in a great nation and we enjoy some incredible freedoms.

It was a very complex and dangerous mission and I am so grateful that there are men and women who are willing to put their lives on the line in order to protect us. We are truly a blessed people. ...Read More

We invited our family and friends and we worked hard to make sure that everything would happen just as we had planned it. It was an awesome day!...Read More
