Lessons Learned Through Big Decisions
Early last year, we caught up with three young adults who had big plans for 2016. In this follow-up discussion, we discover how the year went in light of their life changes and goals. A new job, new marriage, and new challenge (live on $7/day!) proved daunting but worthwhile. Listen in at what our panel learned in the process.
Married at 77
Guests: Fayrene Clark-Reese,
Fayrene Clark-Reese was happily single for 77 years. Until she met Cecil, fell in love, and married him after almost eight decades of life on her own. But in five short months, Cecil died. Why did God give Fayrene a husband after such a long wait, only to take him away? Now in her 80s, Fayrene has much to say about hope, trusting God, and living life to the fullest. You will not be able to stop smiling as you listen to this “optimistic octogenarian” share her love of life and the Savior.
