      Powerful Words

      May 10, 2018 Pastor Terry
      John Killinger wrote these powerful words years ago. Take a moment, read them, re-read them. Let them sink in. Then say a prayer of thanks for moms.

      Take these for example: 
      "You don't get two chances to make a good first impression."
      "If your mind goes blank, don't forget to turn off the sound."
