Women's Ministry Trip to Romania

I am so excited to be starting my journey to get me to Romania this summer to share and spread the word of God to people who really need to hear it! To share the stories with these women and children about how he has worked in my life and where he has led and is leading me to go! I have started two fundraisers today to help me earn the funds that I need to be able to go reach out to these people and touch their lives and hearts with the love that Jesus and our Father has for us!

If you feel so inclined to donate, no matter the amount, I would greatly appreciate it! I will keep everyone posted with my journey  to getting there and my journey while I'm there as well!

Please lead me...

After another moving church service yesterday I picked up a piece of paper, well 2 pieces of paper actually, about the Women's Ministry Mission trip to Romania this summer.

When they were talking about it during the service I was taken back to my high school mission trip days and was quickly reminded how much I miss them!! Then I thought maybe this is something I NEED to do. After seeing the cost I got a little scared, it's quite a bit of money and living with just one income right now I know there is no way we can afford for me to go. So, I started praying. I want God to lead me where he wants me to go. I know if he wants me in Romania he will figure out a way for me to get there and afford to be there!

So, if you're reading this, I ask that you pray with me that God leads me in the right direction, whether it's to Romania or it's just staying right here at home, I will go where he tells me!

Finding Value

Today I learned something from an amazing sermon!

IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT ME!  At times I tend to think this way but after listening today and seeing what God is capable of I now know that it isn't all about me and what I want!

I am now going to be helping other people find the value in themselves to make myself more valuable! IF I can't help people see how valuable they are then how can I see myself as a valuable part of this community, and this world?

God knows we are all valuable in our own unique ways, otherwise we wouldn't be here. He teaches us through his words in the Gospel to find value in our lives and in our homes and in our community! We must branch out and help those that aren't believers or that are questioning their beliefs or faith find the value in themselves and the value in believing in Jesus Christ and our Father!

You are valuable, and you are wanted!

A little about me.

Before I really start jumping into finding my way back to the spiritual path I used to be on, I first want to share a little about myself.

I grew up in a Presbyterian church. I don't know that I had a super close relationship with God, but I did talk to him often and I hope that I went down the path he had laid out for me. I know not all decisions in my teen years were the best or the right ones, but I made them and I know that they were put in my path for a reason.

After becoming pregnant at the young age of 19 and getting married a short time after finding out I feel like I lost my way a bit. I was confused to say the least. I thought that I was in love and that that was my fairy tale romance, but I soon found out that was not the case at all. After dealing with a boy who wasn't ready to become a man, a husband or a father and dealing with some abuse along the way that relationship ended just 2 short years after it began. I wasn't attending church and I wasn't talking to God at all. I didn't know why he would let someone treat someone else they way I had been treated. I was still young, hurt and confused.

I shied away from church and was just focused on raising my little girl and trying to make things work for her and I since we were on our own. I then met my now husband online while he was deployed. I realize now, even though we met in an unconventional way, that God put each of is in each other's lives for a reason. My husband is not a believer, never has been and I doubt he ever will become one, but I do believe we were brought together to make each other better and to help each other through the most trying time in our lives.

Now, as we are coming up on our 3rd anniversary we are dealing with something I never though I would ever have to deal with in my life. Infertility. It is a nasty word. It's something I hate thinking about because all I want to do is give my husband a child. Yes some might say be happy you have a child already. I do have a child, a beautiful 6 year old girl who never ceases to amaze me, but I want to give my husband a child to call his own, one that will call him Daddy and look upto him the way Makenzie looks upto him now. Now in this time in my life I need God more than ever to show me that everything is going to be ok and we will be blessed with a child when he thinks the time is right.

Now after more than 7 years of being away from a church I have found one that I truly believe is the perfect fit after just attending one time. The way I was welcomed and treated by the members there was truly amazing. The sermon that was delivered really hit home for me and at that moment I knew that God had brought me there on that particular day, for that particular sermon to let me know that that is the place I am supposed to be. I was so moved. I can honestly say I have never experienced anything like that before in my life. I have never ever been so close to tears while singing praises to the Lord.

I can not wait to start my journey again to finding Christ and to find my way back to the faith I used to have.

I can't say I will post a lot on here but I know when I feel moved I will be posting. I am hoping at least once a week. If I can help at least one person find their way back as well I will feel like I have accomplished something truly awesome!

God Bless!
