“One thing I loved about Holy Family were the chapel reflections. Pastor Hunter sharing deep stories with perfect messages in them to not only listen and reflect on the story itself but to also self-reflect. I really think the reflections helped some people. I remember a lot of people (including myself) put so much into them. To get up there and express yourself is scary but getting your name called to speak is also one of the best nervous feelings ever.”
