So I know some of my latest posts may have been a bit dreary, but that comes with the territory of abortion. It's not a pretty topic. But I must say, I'm happy! Incredibly happy!
My husband and I have never been closer and he has been such a pillar of strength & encouragement for me! I have seen him grow so much spiritually since the Lord has called me to step out & speak out with my testimony. I truly love him more every day!
Homeschooling is going well. Thankfully we started early this year so with all the travel & unexpected speaking dates & sickness we are still on track & should be done before Easter! Though I'm sure we won't break for long since Brady actually likes it!
Along with this wild journey God has had me on I've really realized how many amazing prayer warriors I have in my life! There is NO way I could do what I do if it weren't for the kind words & support from so many people! Even complete strangers! The kindness that has been poured out to me has definitely made me want to strive harder to be that kind of person for others.
As hard as it is (& even lonely at times) to be so open & raw about my prolife stance, it has made me a stronger person & has allowed me to see things from a whole new perspective. I already had a deep hunger for God's Word, but I now understand the vitality of digging into it, knowing without a doubt what it says, & being bold enough to stand up for it at any cost!
Opening up to everyone about my past has given me so much freedom to just be myself. I don't feel like I have to hide or pretend to be something I'm not. I can be me, the real me. And I've realized that it's OK if people if don't like me, it doesn't feel good, but it's OK. As long as I'm honest, obeying God's Word, & seeking the Lord in all that I do, I'm going to be happy.
No doubt I'll continue to go through rough waters, fire, & doubt, but I can truly say in this moment, in this season I am happy. And this happiness resides only in Christ who gives me strength.
