Car Blessing

Recently I ran into a bit of car trouble when my car did not pass inspection and I did not have the money for the repairs it needed in order to pass. My rejection sticker would allow me to drive for about 15 days, so I began to pray and really trust the Lord that it would all work out. (more…)

Called To Adopt

17 months ago I adopted a 15 year old from a local foster home making me a first time mom to a teenager. Jenny was diagnosed with RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder); which is generally defined as “a failure to form normal attachments to primary caregivers due to neglect, abuse, abrupt separation from caregivers. However, with prayer, love, patience and concerted effort, RAD can be repaired. (more…)

From Orphan To Family

Doctors have diagnosed me with RAD, ADHD, Bi-polar, Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. With RAD, I have a hard time making friends; I’m either non-social or too clingy. My biological mom was an alcoholic. I was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Pierre Robins Syndrome (which affects my speech) and a cleft pallet (hole in the top of my mouth). (more…)

Honoring God With Tithe

We believe that our story has happened the way it has because we honor God with our tithes and offerings, no matter how much or little we made. The summer of my Senior year at VCU, Jen was frustrated with work and really wanted to quit--at that time I was only working part time and taking 12 credit hours. How were we going to make what little ends meet if we both weren't working? Eventually savings would run out. So we sowed and prayed for increase. (more…)

Job Favor

God has brought me through an IED blast in Iraq, cured me from testicular cancer and gave me a job the day the twins were born. So, why did I doubt that when I raised my hand in church a few Sundays ago for a God Story at my work, that it wouldn't happen?! Like Mark 9:24, I believe, but needed God to help my unbelief. I raised my hand in church, received a blue God Story shirt and thought "well, this is nice, but this is as probably as good as it is going to get." (more…)

God Heals Back Pain

About a month ago I hurt my back picking up my little one. Having a hurt back certainly made life difficult. I asked for prayer several times in several different settings and each time felt better but was not completely healed. (more…)

Job and Financial Provision

I began looking for work last summer. I felt confident that I could find work easily. I've never had trouble finding a job, and even though I had been out of work for the last few years staying home with our daughters, I believed I could jump back in where I had left off. I was surprised by how much more difficult it was this time around. My confidence waned, and despite applying to hundreds of jobs I received only a handful of interviews. All of them went well and I was even offered one, but it turned out to…

Giving Into a Job Upgrade

It had been almost 4 years at my last job when I decided it was time for a change. I was bored with my job and didn't feel like I was growing much anymore. I began to search for jobs last June-July with an application here and there but didn't hear a whole lot back from anyone. (more…)
