Inspirational Quotes to help you get Through Crisis such as COVID-19 Pandemic

Crisis, such as the COVID-19 Pandemic, can test our abilities and shake up our faith. Like so many, I have a heavy heart as I hear each day about the impacts COVID-19 is having on our communities.

We are thankful to all the health workers, first responders, truck drivers, warehouse workers, grocery store clerks, and many others who are showing the utmost courage and bravery to help our fellow citizens in these difficult times.  We should take precautions and never lose hope.  There are two things we know about all crises: each one is different and each one does end. This too shall pass, God willing.
