Inspirational stories come from the writers heart and soul. God put His "heart" in you. He didn't just create you. He invested Himself in you. You are the inspirational story that emerged from the heart and soul of the Father. Who you are is a person worth knowing well.

Testimony!


So tonight I had the amazing opportunity to speak to our church youth group. The series that they are talking about is struggles. Adam asked me to talk about my dad. This is the first time besides in a small group setting that I have actually talked about my dad in front of a big group of people. I was really nervous but I made it through! ;) It actually was a lot of fun! Before I went up I just continued praying that God would speak through me what I spoke would be his words and not my own. Then He began to tell me that although I might not see a reason for my dads death this is the beginning of my ability to speak into peoples lives. That He is going to use me to show His love and faithfulness through the hardest times! It was so amazing just knowing that God is going to use my trails to speak into other peoples lives. Man God is good! Thankfully I did an internship last year and one of my classes was public speaking so I was not all that nervous just a little bit lol! However it was really amazing sitting up there looking into these kids eye some who have no hope and telling them that God did not just make them to fill up space but that He has a calling and I purpose for each of their lives!

So proud; I am sure it was amazing even though I was not there. Remember the dream that your dad had before he died about you speaking in front of a large group of women; will I just get the picture that this is the beginning of that dream coming to fulfillment. Love ya.

Way to go! I have no doubt that God will use your challenges and struggles to encourage others. He already has been. Life is hard but God is good right? Glad it went well!
