"…at that point, the American dream and retiring by 40 meant nothing to me. I just wanted my life back."

You will see first hand how God can take our weaknesses and use them for His glory! Listen in as Jami and Gary (her dad!) share memories, laughter and even a few tears in this very special episode.
