A quote from Margaret:
You're here not by chance, but by God's choosing. His hand formed you and made you the person you are. He compares you to no one else, you are one of a kind. You lack nothing that his grace can't give you. He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill his special purpose for this generation."
