Five Minute Friday: She

 
 
Its late for "Friday" posting... but I just had to do this!
 
 
 
We met the summer of 2011. She was in the internship at our church and watched our sons several times to earn money for a missions trip to India. She and I had many heartfelt talks when I would take her home. We grew closer and I prayed for her often. In August God put it on my heart to pray for her like a daughter. So I did.
It was only a few more months before she came to live with us. She traveled with us, celebrated holidays with us, became a very treasured member of our family.
God did a mighty work in her. Beyond what we could ever have planned or imagined. She had a room in our finished basement that she made her own and she watched our boys to offset her living expenses.



She chose to get baptized, graduated the internship and found a job at a local preschool. She experienced more and more of Jesus, His provision for her, His grace, and His blessings. She moved out on her own in June of 2013. We praise God for who she was, who she is and who she is becoming.

I have learned to never underestimate the power of obeying God. He asked us to have her live with us and He did so much. If God puts someone on your heart to invest in and pray for. Please do it. You'll not regret it!

Who am I?

I am a wife and mother of 3. I have been married to my best friend for over 25 years and our children are 12, 11 and 9 years old. I have struggled with infertility, suffered the loss of a baby by miscarriage, and endured multiple career paths. I have experienced a crisis of faith that shook me to the core and lost a dear friend to a tragic death. I have had a personal relationship with Jesus for most of my life. The Bible and my relationship with Christ has been essential to my surviving and even thriving in my circumstances. I hope you will be blessed by joining me in this process of life. I thank you for showing up to read what I have written.
