a story of losing everything and finding myself. I hope you enjoy it! This is Episode 5. In this fifth episode my wife joins me in the studio to cover the events I did not witness due to me searching for help for 9-12 hours as discussed in episode 4. 

The flood waters that occurred in August of 2016 encompassed 90% of the city of Denham Springs, parts of neighboring Baton Rouge and even Central city, Louisiana.
