Great explanation of what true freedom is!

Snowman time!

After the FOCUS Conference, we visited Ave Maria University in Naples, FL.
God is SO awesome! He is pouring down graces on this world in the midst of so much turmoil.  May God be praised! The FOCUS Conference was so wonderful -- we met so many great people. 

The Ave Maria University tour was also inspiring -- they built a Catholic town around the University. It was great.
