“The year humanity tried to destroy us and the enemy tried to break us, but through it all, through our struggles, the worst days, God showed up and consistently showed us how good He is! Yes we were hurt, disappointed, doubted but we never wavered in our faith and grew even closer to God and each other,” she wrote. But LeAnne is looking forward to a prosperous new year.
