A lot of times it can feel like you’re the only one who has ever experienced what you’re going through right now. No matter what you’re going through, we truly mean it when we say we’ve all been in your shoes and nothing you’re feeling or believing will shock us.
Below are a series of stories from people right here at Palm Valley Church. Some come from great experiences while others were walking through hard times. The unifying thread through all of them is a life changed through the hope and purpose found in Jesus.
Restoring Relationships | Olivia’s Story
