We are pleased to announce the keynote speakers for our 2014 Weekend of Hope events—Jennifer Barrick and her parents, Linda and Andy of Virginia. Jen and her family have an amazing story which has been chronicled in the book, Miracle for Jen, and on The Today Show, Fox & Friends and other national outlets. They will be speaking at our April 2014 Hearts for Hope Women’s Tea, Journey of Hope Men’s Breakfast and Wake Up Call event for church youth groups.
