We are part of The Trust Project.

Retired army medic Sam Williams will talk about how God sustained him through many difficult and dangerous situations from noon-1 p.m. Friday, May 20 at the Unity Foundation's monthly Faith at Work Lunch at the Broadway Ballroom.

Williams served as a medic for 26 years. Now a mentor and coach, he lives in Alexandria with his wife, their children and four foster kids. He is the Alexandria Covenant Church administrator and vice chair at Bread to the Nations, and works with middle school and high school kids during the week. He received the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal, which goes to members of the military who perform significant volunteer work with tangible results.

Tickets cost $10 per person and can be purchased online or at the door.

All attendees must register in advance either at or by email, . Without a registration, the Unity Foundation says, it can no longer guarantee anyone a seat.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

But as time passed, she learned all moms contribute in their own way.
