"Ultimately, we all only get one journey through life and although at times it may not seem fair or feel overwhelming I truly believe that God has a plan for all of us. He doesn't give us more than we can handle and through us we can share His love with others. I believe that He sends special people into our lives that help guide us, believe in us and lift us back on our feet. I'm blessed to have so many of these amazing people in my life." - Scott Roy "ENJOY THE JOURNEY!"
