Her favorite quote:
“Everything matters. Because you are important, everything you do is important. Every time you forgive, the universe changes; every time you reach out and touch a heart or a life, the world changes; with every kindness and service, seen or unseen, my (God’s) purposes are accomplished and nothing will ever be the same again.” THE SHACK by William P. Young
