“God is love. He doesn’t just have love, he is love. He doesn’t just do good things. He is good and so God is not trying to destroy or devastate us potentially…He knows that we’re going to be shaped, that our characters going to grow, that our faith is going to grow and that ultimately like your [All Things] podcast says, Romans 8:28, ultimately something beautiful is going to come from this.” – Dawn Scott Damon (10:37)
