We were broken, individually and as a couple. We were both shells and our family was suffering for it. We didn’t see it, until our world was completely ripped apart. Marriage counseling, for us, was so much more than just learning better communication. We had to learn who we were in God before we could learn who we were as a couple. God took a terrible situation of dust and ashes, turning it into a beautiful story of growth, forgiveness, humbleness, and redemption. Satan threw everything he had at us, it seemed. This has been the hardest road we have traveled, and we are completely thankful for it. It’s hard to see the path through the rain. We were in the storm and couldn’t see where we were being led, but we were pushing through and doing the work. A year and a half of work and pursuing God when sometimes we didn’t know where we would end up. God has great plans for us, and is using this for HIS purpose and HIS glory. We are better individually, as spouses, a family and Christians. Counseling is a tool that God used for this change. Only with God.
As a small child God captured my heart with compassion to work with children and the elderly. I love their wonderful stories and wisdom that God has given to them and the innocents of children. I was saved at a really low point of my life surrounded by encouraging women.
I met my husband and was married for 32 years. We shared a ministry together in the intercity of Fort Worth Texas where we lived. God used it to open up our eyes and hearts for His people as we served them. We went through a lot of trials and tribulations, but God says that it is these times that draws us closer to Him.
Several years later my husband took his own life. I learned on Ps 23:4, "Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for you are with me and your rod and staff will comfort me."
With a lot of healing years later Jesus called me to go to the nations. He made a BIG difference in my heart. When I am used by God I can't believe what just happens!!! He is amazing !!! My life was changed and showed me what amount of Pure Love I had to give to others and the nations he was calling me too. It required waiting on the Lord and putting Him first while honoring Him to proclaim the Good News.
I dedicated myself to the Lord in missions and the plans God laid out for me to go to DTS in Kona, Hawaii. I was there for 3 months in addition to an outreach in Malaysia and other mission trips where we went to Panama, Costa Rica and The Dream Center in California.
I have a new zest for life and walk with the Lord with purpose and a glow in my heart because I have surrendered to Him, and now He has filled me with joy and peace.
