My second family
Being a part of a church community has been such a huge source of comfort and stability over the course of my adult years. It's so hard to make friends when you are an adult -- making friends at school was so easy as a kid.

But once you get out of school, it seems the friend pool can dry up rather suddenly and all you have is your workplace and sometimes that isn't enough.
I was so thankful to have a place with Redemption Hill and these people make me feel welcome and loved -- just like a second family. I hope that you have your own second family out there because honestly, one family isn't enough for m
