"Tough times never last but tough people do." - Teri Johnson
"When we're in those tough times, it's hard and overwhelming and brings up all of these negative emotions. And when I think about that, I want the opposite of that. And the opposite of that is God because God is love, and he just wraps us in that love and peace that surpasses all understanding." - Teri Johnson
