We were "Church Hoppers" until we found Dayspring. Dayspring has brought the Grubbs family to a new level of Christian awareness, showing how we fit into God’s plan and how the quality of marriage and family suddenly comes alive with a marriage they can mold theirs by. lf you're tired of "hopping", come plant some roots in the Dayspring garden; the fruits will be plentiful.
