Being widowed at age 28 while pregnant with a 2 year old at home.
I felt used: like I was created to show his glory but not to be loved by him. It felt as if my own desires were ignored or forgotten.
My husband was active duty Air Force when he passed away, so I receive a stipend to live on, which gives me the freedom to do what I love (write and parent my kids).
He meets my needs. I’m still wrestling with him with my personal desires, but he has revealed his purposes for losing my husband (and my dad 2 years before that).
So many. Ha! Never Alone and Angel Armies were huge when Keith was sick. Cornerstone by Hillsong is one that I clung to after he died and Good, Good Father is one that gets me so hard now. I lost my dad and my kids don’t have their dad either, so I struggle to embrace God as my Good Father.
Oh my word. It’s hard to summarize. He has opened up my platform and given me the opportunity to encourage people to live bravely and authentically through hard times on my blog and podcast.
So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. (2 Corinthians 4:16 MSG)
