My name is Mindy Cumberland, and I have been a member of Cornerstone for about 7 years. For those of you who do not know, I recently had a double lung transplant about 6 months ago. I’ve always felt like I have had a close relationship with God, but throughout this journey I feel like our relationship has gotten stronger and stronger each day. While I was at Duke University Hospital in Durham, North Carolina, my mom, Jan Vaughn, and I decided to write some things down that helped us get through some difficult times during my journey. We created a blog to try and help other people get through difficulties as well. Everybody goes through difficult times, but the most important thing I learned throughout this entire journey was that God has a reason for absolutely everything that we go through. We just have to trust Him and know that He is with us every step of the way. I hope and pray that the things in my blog can help someone in some way.
