Welcome graphic

My name is Matthew Seals  I would like to share my story with you. My defining moment. I have to give credit to the title "Defining Moment" to James Spann. I heard him say that and knew it applied to my life. LIfe is now either before the tornado or after. I survived an F5 tornado that hit the western suburbs of Birmingham, AL on April 8, 1998. My family and I were all injured. It left me with a permanent T12 spinal cord injury (i.e., I am paralyzed from the waist down)  We  lost our 8 year old son.

God has shown His faithfulness  throughout this experience  and this is what I would like to share -- God's goodness and faithfulness -- along with some severe weather safety tips.
