Love Talks: Bond

Jerry and Heather met in college with Jerry laying eyes on Heather first at a fraternity picnic. He was admittedly hesitant to approach Heather because she seemed different from the other girls he had seen on campus.

His Teachings: Seasons

Many who’ve met me in this season and see my successes tend to think I’m just lucky. No such thing. If only you knew the PAIN and trials I went through before receiving favor. If only you knew the many years I lived mad at the world, sorrowful and not trusting in Him. When I finally gave in and gave it ALL to Him my blessings poured in.
