Kordell says the most influential person in his life is his mother,” because she is the most hardworking and dedicated person I know “.
The motto that he lives : “For God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.” This bible verse speaks volumes for when adversity tends to strike we must not let negative thoughts or anxiety overcome us, but have a strong, caring and a peaceful mind to keep us calm through the storm.
