WHAT FAITH MEANS TO ME:

“My faith means everything to me, especially going to communion. That is very important to me in my life. I recognize Christ to be the most important person in your life. And I hope that everybody comes to that conclusion because that is very important in growing up and raising your kids. I am glad that I have a couple of sons who bring me to church on Sunday because I am too old to drive a car. I am glad that I have sons that help me.”
