God has blessed me, Denny Pattyn, with an amazing, caring and extraordinarily close family. It is truly a gift and something that I don’t take for granted. We are far from perfect and the journey to remain close has not been without challenges through life’s storms.
Navigating a life-changing cancer diagnosis these past five years, while trying to find my footing as the world struggles to adjust to the coronavirus pandemic, makes me grateful for my faith and appreciate all the more the God-ordained institution of family. It clear to me more than ever we need God’s grace and wisdom to direct our families through these turbulent times.
