What do you do when your dreams are shattered?
In 1985, I was born to a preacher and his wife in Morton, Mississippi. From birth, I was Daddy’s boy. We often went on road trips together and threw the football in the backyard. Dad was a passionate gospel preacher, and he taught me everything I know about preaching and ministry. But more than a great father and a good preacher, Dad was my best friend. Every week of college, he and I shared a meal together and talked about life. We were headed for a lifetime of rich friendship that only a father and son can know.
