This week we traveled to Wellman, Texas to surprise the Brown family. You know, the Brown's are really an amazing family — Jeanne, Johnny Mac and their daughter Katrina. They absolutely have had one of the most tragic situations, losing their child Alex to a texting while driving accident. They have been able to look beyond their own personal grief and realize that the message is more impactful than their grief. As a mother I can tell you that there's nothing in the world I can imagine worse than losing a child. The fact that they lost a child and they were immediately able to take a message and move forward with it just testifies to the integrity and the character of this family.
This week we traveled to Nashville to build a new structure for the Lighthouse School because they've sustained a massive amount of damage during the floods back in June. I think everybody in the country saw on different news stations part of the school floating down the river. I'm from Tennessee, born and raised, and there wasn't anyone who could have looked at that footage and not go, "Oh my gosh."
