VP Daughter, Charlotte Pence, Opens Up about Battle with Atheism and Finding Faith in Christ

Will Maule : Oct 19, 2018 : Faithwire.com

"In that moment, I came home to my Savior, to my Friend. I understood I needed Him and He took me back with open arms. This incredible feeling of acceptance and renewal is one I cannot put into words, I cannot recreate, I cannot justify. It just is. It is a free gift, and one I cannot live without.
