Family Pathways mother finds blessings in the storm

When Krystal Smith sneaks into her children’s room to wake them for school, she doesn’t enter on her tip toes – she dances.

“We have a lot of dance parties,” Krystal said. “We start pretty much every day with music that gets the blood flowing and we dance.”

With the music on, her children jump out of bed, and they start their day – together, happy, dancing.

Coming to Buckner Family Pathways was an answer to prayer, “a prayer I didn’t even know I needed to pray,” Krystal said. Krystal is no stranger to difficult times.
