“I am a child of the almighty God through the power of the blood sacrifice and resurrected son. Fellow heir to the kingdom of God, husband of an excellent wife who fears the Lord, father of two sons and one daughter, gifts from the Lord raised up as living stones to reflect His love and His glory. I am confident of God’s work in me and satisfied in Him alone.” -Jeff
