A Recap

  • United 2014

to believe that our trip is only half way done. We arrived in Vegas last night and we’re gearing up for a great day of coaching today! This is when I’m realizing just how thankful I am that I’m not by myself. Having Michael with me makes everything 100x easier and I can’t help but remember what it used to be like.

Amazing people, amazing food, amazing views, amazing classes… but what is TRULY amazing to me is how God uses relationships and connections to change people’s lives.
