The saying I had a face for radio had never been truer. After seeing a doctor I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. My doctors ordered me off the road for 6 weeks to prevent any stress to my body that could cause my condition to worsen. Immediately I started praying for a miracle. I truly believed God was going to heal me so I could continue his work, And he did. What doctors were expecting to take 6 weeks to recover God recovered in 2 weeks.  Its our Faith that will put our “Miracle in Reach”-Hester
Reach is available on almost all digital media sources including iTunes 
and CD Baby
