“We all have a story, gifts, and powerful experiences to share. Our paths might not always be clear or steadfast, but this scripture teaches us to persevere. In times of uncertainty, fear, and hatred, we must continue to be empowered and inspire others to spread God’s word and love,” said Jessie Houff. “What can you teach the world?”
