It has just released (September 1, 2014) and we're so excited to be able to share stories about the Covington family over the years. (less)

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Lynette Sowell, Love's Stormy Gale
