This is the true story of what happened to me on May 1, 2017. A painful day. But, a day changed the path of my life. It started as a normal Monday morning. I had just finished up my morning radio show, like normal. I then headed to my normal Monday meeting. That was the …

What Our Cat Taught Me About Prayer
