About Kathy

We read fairy tales and Harry Potter. We believe in the spirit of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Most of all we believe in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit and in His Holy Word which was perfect in its original texts, our salvation through the blood of His son, Jesus Christ, the Resurrection and His Ascension back to heaven and Christ's promise of Eternal Life.
