I am wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandchild, employee, friend, but most importantly a child of God! I've always been "religious"...brought up in a Lutheran school from grades 2-7, attended a Lutheran church until I was about 13 when my family fell away due to the hecticness of life. I had my daughter a month after I turned 19, was a single mom for several years, diagnosed with Leukemia at the ripe old age of 24. With the Lords grace, beat my fight with cancer but instead of rejoicing and praising God I was angry at our Lord for "allowing" me to get sick. Spent a few years angry at God and the world. Made many bad choices and I'm very lucky to be alive today. Married my husband in November 2003, and again with God's mercy and love, was able to become pregnant thru IVF for our son. Finally, in the summer of 2008 I was pretty close to hitting bottom due to circumstances happening in my marriage, stress of parenting my 16 year old daughter and issues among other relatives, and I finally started back to church. Although I was feeling better because I was drawing closer to God again, as I had wished to do for several years, my life continued to be a mess. Life at home got worse with my husband and daughter and went thru many painful and depressed days, weeks, and months. This of course was the devil at his best. Trying to keep me from attending church, bible studies, MOPS, and any other God based changes I was making in my life. Things eventually have gotten better but every day is a struggle. There are still issues and hurtful events taking place but with the Lord strengthening me I am handling things in a more Godly example. I am a very blessed daughter of God and am so happy that I have decided to give my life back over to Him. What an AWESOME God He is!
