I love Jesus, because he first loved me!
My husband, John, and I have been married for over 20 years. Over these years, our home has been through many trials as well as has seen many miracles. We have been tested and are able to say God is faithful through it all.
For instance, as biological parents we waited 12 long years before we were able to have a child of our own. As adoptive parents, we adopted a blind child, Maleka, that was burned as an infant. As foster parents, we cared for over 100 medically fragile foster children, even having to bury a foster child whom we were in the process of adopting. Not to mention we opened and ran a shelter for homeless women and their children for 4 years.
So, you can see, we have been through the good and the bad and yet through it all found God to be faithful. That’s what this ministry is about – good or bad – God is faithful.
You see, as I reflect back over the years and life events there is one thing that has remained constant and that is: Jesus, my Lord and Savior, can be trusted. He has been our rock. Life and people will let you down but the Bible tells us “He (Jesus) is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.”
That’s what my ministry is all about…through it all God is faithful.
As I travel and share our family’s remarkable testimony, one of the topics I teach is “Don’t Let Others Determine Your Destination.” It’s partly from moments where I have experienced people walking out of my life or attacking my reputation. A spiritual principle is that any time you are living for Jesus and being productive in His Kingdom there will always be opposition. In fact, if you don’t have some opposition in your life, you may want to reevaluate how effective you are being for Christ. Because where the work of God is moving Satan is constantly looking for ways to destroy. “He is like a lion seeking whom he may devour.” ( I Peter 5:8 )
I am honored that God has allowed me to take all my past life experiences and now use them for His glory.
“For ALL things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
