Erin remembers her fascination as a child with her granddaddy’s cows and her grandma’s cat. She had a dog, cat, and lamb by the age of five.

Noah asked his audience to consider the “little voice in your head that tells you when you should not do something.” That “little voice” protects us from and doing things we will regret.
