How Do We Grow?

By |2017-10-12T10:03:18+00:00October 12th, 2017|Encouragement|

My eight-year-old daughter, Hallie, still can’t wrap her arms even halfway around the giant oak in our yard. Our little farmhouse was built in 1930—the first in this square mile—many, many moons ago. She looks like a pint-sized ant standing [...]
