Blessings of Ministry...

"For from him and through him and for him are all things.To him be the glory forever! Amen."
Romans 11:36

In this season of ministry, there is much to be shared as I contemplate all that God is doing right in our very midst.  May His will always be at the center, may Jesus always be seated on the heart's throne of this ministry, and may He guide each and every decision made and endeavor undertaken.

Month after month, the Lord has drawn women in.  We come together, broken by our grief, yet longing for hope.  Some are grasping for it, while others are clinging to it.  Our shared experience bonds us - even those of us who never have a chance to meet - and we get it.  Love abounds and hope is revealed.  Hope in the Savior...our only hope.  

"Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel."
Philippians 1:12

This is the testimony of my grief.  I believe it has happened to advance the gospel.  Still, the pain is real, grief runs deep, and wounds sometimes feel just as fresh as the days we found out.  Just as real as the grief, so is my Jesus.  More real than anything I have ever experienced in my life.  Over the past six years, I have seen and experienced things that only He could do.   

Who could offer a peace to a heart filled with turmoil?
Who could bring a sinful woman back to faith?
Who could orchestrate a divine meeting between two grieving mommies with a passion?
Who could piece together gifts and abilities and a desire to serve?
Who could draw women to this place; this haven of hope?
Who could keep them coming?
Who could give strength through humble surrender?
Who is the good news?
Who could open doors and guide with infinite wisdom?
Who could give the words?

Jesus.  Only Jesus, who is the Word that became flesh (John 1:14).  And He has done great things!

Here are just a few of the ministry highlights and prayer requests that I am excited to share with each of you as the Mommies with Hope ministry continues to evolve...

*  We are in the midst of becoming an official 501c3 non-profit organization!  *
*  We will be launching our first fundraiser in the coming weeks (please pray)!  *
*  We are looking forward to a brand new website, slated to go live this summer!  *
*  My book will release this summer and is now available for pre-sale through Amazon, Christianbook, and Kregel.com (description provided)!  *

Please be in prayer as God continues to do His work through Mommies with Hope.  Pray for me, that I may always walk in obedience, leaving the results up to Him!

Blessings to You,
