You're An Overcomer!

In April of 2013 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I'll never forget that day and the feeling of my heart sinking. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.

The quicker you yield, the more grace He releases as He prepares you for the unpredictable. You never know what God is preparing you for. Stay in the fight...
