Cancer and Coronavirus: Guest Post by Mary Gunther

I reflect on the two cancers I had in my thirties as a tremendous gift. A gift for then and a gift for now because what I learned in the midst of cancer is still applicable to the coronavirus that faces us. I didn’t think too much about my cancer.

This is My Story

This is my story. This is my song. Praising my Savior all the day long. Hymn Sings were a regular part of my church experience growing up. This hymn was a staple.
