    Falling In Love Again

    0

    After thirty-plus years of marriage, raising children, ministry, publishing and speaking, my husband Bill and I realized we desperately needed to get away to reconnect. We didn’t want to be like other couples we’d noticed who sit in a restaurant, silently eating. We knew it …
