Amy’s Story

When my husband passed away, I immediately found the need to find someplace to help me get through it. Cornerstone was just that place.

Saundra & Angela’s Story

I knew that I wanted to give whatever I could to the place that helped give me hope again, just like my sister, Camie, with the kind heart would have done. God allowed everything to come full circle.

Kyle Kiffer’s Story

I went through one year in a very deep spiritual valley. However, one Sunday morning, I woke up while in College and realized that something was missing. Something was different in my heart.
