FC: GRANT'S BABY BOOK | “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." | Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11,12

No adventure will be greater than being led by Him into battle, discovering his deep love for you, and risking everything for Him because He first loved you.
