Any spiritual lessons you have learned on outdoor events:
In September of 2013 my wife and I lost our little girl Bree Elizabeth Kassinger, who was supposed to be born in November. A couple weeks later I was bowhunting one morning. I got to my stand really early as normal. I thought to myself that it was really dark, and that's how my life had felt due to our circumstance. I almost immediately felt God tell me that soon the darkness would be gone and the sun would be shining. God taught me in that moment, that no matter what happens in life, no matter how dark, or how difficult your circumstance is that it won't last forever. That He is faithful to bring hope and life to His children.
