S2 EP3: His Miracles Are Real w/ Nancy Hunter
“I believe that God has given us this time to learn to live a life of hope. Tony has served 19 years of his sentence and, just like any nagging mother, I constantly remind him of the world available to him if he keeps making good decisions. God has proven Himself to us over and over again through His miracles, and He is not through with us yet. You may have read Proverbs 3:5–6 before, but I want to encourage you to see these verses as a promise meant just for you. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths” (NKJV).” His Miracles Are Real—Nancy Hunter Read Nancy’s story through this link: https://victoriouslivingmagazine.com/2018/05/miracles-real/ For more information on how you can help us deliver hope behind bars, visit our website: https://victoriouslivingmagazine.com
