FAVORITE QUOTE

“Words I believe and that I share with those in my company and care: Just think, you’re not here by chance, but by God's choosing you. His hand formed you. He made you the person you are. He compares you to no one else – you’re one of a kind. You lack nothing His grace can't give you. He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.”  -- Roy Lessin
