Posted on April 26, 2018 8:08 am by Laura Stone


In May 2008, Ann Driggers founded the Jordan Crossroads Ministry Center Haven of Rest, a nonprofit domestic violence crisis center for women and children.

A sign is a fun thing. Don’t you love it when you get a sign that means wealth, health, or good fun is … Read the rest
