My father was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) when I was five. At the time, he preached for a small congregation in Western Kentucky. My mother had just had my brother and times got tough. The people at the Heath Church of Christ stepped up and got involved. I spent many days and nights in the homes of these good people while my parents were seeing doctors or dealing with the diagnosis.
I learned at a very young age that ‘church’ family is the best family you can have.
