Living life as a single parent with no where to turn, I went back to school. That is what in fact brought me right here to living in Benbrook. After grad and moving into my new home, I thought about whether or not I could live here in Benbrook for the rest of my life or if it would just be another pit stop, you know?

I found the answer one day at the Whitestone Golf Club while playing a round of 18 with the fellas. I knew about the rich history of Benbrook and the many accolades of greatness and purity that the city is surely proud of. I understood that, but the real meaning of sanctity is the surround of yourself with many options.

I recognized from the jump that engulfing the culture would particularly elevate my mental to a state of pure bliss. Benbrook was home, and I can finally reunite my family in a place where people judge you on what you know and not what you look like.
