Why I Got Divorced and Why God is Okay With It

Okay…controversial title; I know. Many will disagree with me on this and that is okay. Some may say I am trying to rationalize a bad decision I have made, and maybe I am. Feel free to weigh in on the issue by commenting. I’d love to discuss and see other people’s perspectives on the issue!

As with many sins committed, I feel like the intention behind it can sometimes be more telling than the sin itself.

For instance, if you go into a marriage with the safety net of “ah…well, it’s just a piece of paper. If something happens, we will just get divorced and go our separate ways,” then I think that is a sin. If you are truly giving your all into your marriage and despite your best efforts, it is still crumbling, or if your spouse is abusive or neglectful, then I feel that you have every right to leave.


I grew up in a divorced household. My mother has been married 3+ times, my father has been married 2+ times, my grandmother has been married 3+ times, and the list goes on. From a young age, I was determined to break that cycle. I did not want that for my life. Divorce was never an option in my mind. It was messy. It caused hurt. It was not for me.

When I was 15 years old, I went to work with my step-dad who owned his own company, like I did every Summer. While there, I met one of his new employees and developed a crush. That crush led to a flame. Then we began dating. Then before I knew it, we were engaged. Several months into the engagement, at the crazily young age of 17, I found out I was pregnant. With both of us coming from Southern Christian homes, this of course sped up our engagement. We got married 6 months before our daughter, Isabella was born and the marriage was flawed from the beginning. Despite the fact that my new husband was 22 years old, he still lived at home (looking back…that should have been a red flag, but when you are a teenager in love, hormones take over and you overlook things you shouldn’t). Once we were married and living on our own, he went a little wild. He began watching porn (lots of porn), chatting with women in online chat-rooms, joining weird websites seeking out companionship (even though I had not gone anywhere), etc. When confronted, he said he felt trapped and forced into the marriage because of the pregnancy (despite the fact that we were engaged before we got pregnant).

Several months into the marriage, he applied and got hired on to his dream job-law enforcement. He became a deputy sheriff. To say this job changed him was an understatement. The things he witnessed hardened him, took away his joy, and took him away from his family for huge chunks of time.

I want you to know I am not saying the whole marriage collapsing was his fault either. With the constant cheating on his part, I emotionally shut down. We both went through the motions of marriage and were “happy” in public, but at home, we were two strangers living under the same roof. We became roommates instead of spouses and I’m not sure you can come back from that.

Because I was young, did not want to be left alone, did not want to be another teenage pregnancy statistic, and was fighting desperately for a marriage that honestly was not worth fighting for, I talked my husband into having another baby. In my mind, I thought this would be the glue that held our marriage together. Well, as you can probably imagine, that did not work as planned. Our beautiful baby boy, Nolyn, was born in June 2010. And honestly, for a few months, we were happy. We were closer than ever. Then…I was blindsided.

One night, when Nolyn was 11 months old, he came home from work and I heard those dreaded words “we need to talk.” I could tell by his tone and the look on his face that it was something serious. I sat down on the couch and he stood beside me. He said that this was no longer working for him and that he has been seeing another woman and was in love with her. I sat there listening dumbfounded. He said he was sorry and that he would be packing up his things and leaving shortly. I did not cry. I did not ask why. Honestly, I felt a little numb to it all. It had been a long time coming, but in the heat of the moment, you still do not expect it to be happening. He left with all of his things 3 days later and moved in with the woman that I later found out he had been seeing for over a year.

After he moved out, the kids and I never saw him anymore. The new woman he was with decided that his children were “a tie to” me and she did not like that we would still have contact. This went on for nearly 4 years.

Four years go by and I finally meet this AMAZING man. I fall hard for him and his 2 girls. He is, without a doubt, the man God placed on this earth for me. He loves me SO much. He loves my children as if they were his own. We are now married. We are now having a child together. We are both TRULY happy. Happier than I’ve ever been. But without all of the things that happened in my past, I would have never gone down the path to meeting him.

He, too, was married, experienced infidelity, and had the marriage crumble. He was hurt and lost and lonely. He felt the same emotions I did. His ex-spouse was moving along with their new love interest as if nothing had happened, while he went through the divorce alone. Although our stories are different, they are very much the same. We were meant to be together, but we had to go through what we went through to get to where we are now. Now we had something to bond over. Something that tied us together emotionally. I am BEYOND blessed to have this man in my, and my children’s, lives and to call him “mine.”

Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”

I truly have this kind of marriage. The kind of marriage where he puts my needs above his own. Where he works to support and provide for our blended family. And as messy as things can tend to get with blended families, we make it work well.

Not only did we bring God back into each other’s lives, we brought our children into the church, our two youngest girls got saved during Vacation Bible School earlier this month and were baptized last week, we have a new life joining our family in a little over 2 months, and we are all thriving, happy, and healthy.

Also, upon Louis’ infiltration into our family, the kids’ dad slowly crept back into their lives. I think seeing someone step into his role stepped on his toes and made him “man-up.” He still does not take as much interest in his childrens’ lives as I would like, but he’s making baby steps. The fact that he is in their lives at all now is a miracle and it is all thanks to God’s plan and the new man he placed in our lives.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “When God closes one door, He will open another door”?


Louis is my other door. He renewed my purposed. He helped me to not feel alone. He inspired me to do better. He has pushed me to do what I thought I could not do. We have pushed each other back into church. He has given my children the father-figure they had been longing for. He has given me the gift of another child (and thank goodness it is a boy for Nolyn’s sake-he has to fight off 3 girls at our house as it stands now).

For the first time in a long time, I have my joy back. I am immeasurably happy!





I read an article earlier today and it really got me thinking.

12 Christian Messages that Drive Me Crazy

1. Leave people who do not benefit you

Negative people, complainers, bad influences, sinners. Question: If we extricate them from our lives, who will love them? Who will be light to their darkness? This message encourages weakness. Christ encourages maturity and becoming the greater influence. Wherever Jesus went, He had the floor. That’s why He could be fully Himself with the most religious and the most worldly. And that should be our goal too. Grow, don’t go.

2. “God is in control” or “God will take care of everything”

As almighty as He is, He doesn’t wield His power freely. He partners with His children. He’s empowering a growing family of sons and daughters to walk like Him in the earth. Leave your garden “to the Lord” and see what happens. Weeds and animals will overtake it to ruin. Care for it daily and you partner with His miraculous design of seed and soil. The kingdom is forcefully advancing and forceful men lay hold of it. Arise and join your Father in His work.

3. You were born sinful

No, you were born innocent. Adam, formed by the very hands of God, breathed into from His mouth, sinned. That’s because He created us fragile and vulnerable. Knowing this, salvation was finished before the foundation of the world. Sin entered the world, not man. You were fearfully and wonderfully made; skillfully wrought by the Lord’s hands. Never call depraved, evil and sinful what God personally crafted in purposeful love.

4. The ‘call of God’ is more important than the work you do

Too many Christians see their jobs as traps keeping them from really serving God. The most incredible people I know are deeply committed to family and work and are highly effective ministers. The former does not hinder the latter. Our work IS our ministry. Stop trying to stay “free” for spiritual things. Those who do rarely build anything, have little impact or lasting legacy. Put down roots and go all-in right where you are.

Stop trying to stay “free” for spiritual things. Those who do rarely build anything, have little impact or lasting legacy. Put down roots and go all-in right where you are.

5. I am leaving this church to lead another one

The Church is the Father’s family. Being a leader therein is not a job, it’s an identity. Pastors and leaders are fathers and mothers. Vacating a church where our seed has been sown for a better opportunity creates a fatherless house. The church is not a business with CEO’s and presidents. It’s a family. Fathers don’t leave, hirelings do. The true design is sons and daughters being sent out.

6. Give to support a ministry, a mission or a project

Biblical giving is to a person: the Lord Himself or an actual person. Giving to projects and organizations shifts the focus from people to things. That’s when giving loses life and becomes a burden. Generosity peaks when our hearts are connected in relationship. Give to people. DO things.

7. The Bible is the infallible and inerrant word of God

No, Jesus is. The Bible is authoritative, miraculous and the highest written work concerning the Lord and His family. It is profitable for teaching and correction. But it never calls itself the word of God. It is a treasure chest where we discover He who is the Truth. Jesus was the word made flesh. Now, through relationship, we are too. Never allow a book to take the place of who He is or who you are.

8. “We are going to heaven” or “Heaven is our reward”

The overwhelming tenor of scripture is heaven and earth long to be one. We are not escaping the earth, we are inheriting it. The key to our inheritance is bringing heaven – the person of the Lord Jesus – to earth. HE is our reward and our inheritance. Heaven is the realm of the spirit and it was created as the original atmosphere of earth. It is the son of God’s privilege to rejoin the two. Creation is groaning for the reunion.

9. The will of God is something we do

Every “thing” in the Old Testament became a “who” in the New Testament. It is also true with God’s will. You cannot do God’s will until you first BECOME His will.Relationship with God first transforms us and the resulting identity does great things. There were guys who did all kinds of great things in the Lord’s name but were never known by Him. It didn’t work out well for them. Become His will in relationship then do His will in power.

10. Christianity = blessing, prosperity and a good life

Imagine Peter, Stephen, Paul and the rest of the disciples listening to modern-day sermons. After, the guys who suffered greatly and were martyred for their faith would feel they were not in God’s will. I’m not saying you have to be whipped and harassed to be a good Christian. But brokenness, loss and suffering are part of a genuine walk with Jesus. They are not signs of failure but of becoming. God wants to bless us but not at the expense of our maturity.

11. Everything is about the church service

Way too much of the church’s resource is directed at a once-a-week, well-rehearsed production. This event is to be an outgrowth of a deep and abiding internal work within a church family. After many days of seeking the Lord in an upper room, an amazing “service” took place.

Our public gatherings are to be a convergence of the committed core family with the curious, seeking and hungry of the world. This meeting is not church. It is the Father and His lost children connecting through found ones.

If the mass of our resource was focused on relationship – one to another and to the Lord – our services would be so full of Him that little preparation would be required.

12. You become a child of God when you get saved

Actually, you REALIZE you’re a child of God at salvation. Sin blinds us to our true identity. Jesus is the light that broke through the darkness of our orphan state to show us our Father who loves us. If God made us, then we are His. Jesus came to reconcile – brings together AGAIN – lost children to His Father. Salvation is a reunion through new birth – from an faulty identity sin convinced of into our original identity as children of God.

Okay now…back to Caran’s opinion on the article:
-How do you feel about this article?

-Do you think the author is correct in their statements?
-Do you have any objections?
-I would like to hear your opinions on these issues. A few of the things said kind of sparked a curiosity in me while I was reading through.

Tattoos and Christianity-What Do You Think?

Tattoos are such a controversial topic with many, not just within the Christian community. Many people feel that it is dumb to mark your bodies with a permanent branding, of sorts. Others feel that if they feel strongly enough about something, putting that object/idea/etc. on their skin forever shows the ultimate commitment. Where do you fall on the spectrum?

**Please note that the below is my opinion on the topic and is not stating that if you do or do not have tattoos that it makes you more or less of a Christian or anything of the sort.**

I, personally, know MANY faithful Christians who have tattoos. I do not feel that the mere fact that they have ink on their skin is going to keep them from heaven. In fact, I have seen Christians use their tattoos to bond with others who are inked and not Christian and it was a foot in the door to get these people into the church. Remember, God does work in mysterious ways.

Some say that getting a tattoo is a sin and reference Leviticus 19:28: “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.”

If simply reading the verse, the topic seems pretty cut-and-dry, but there is more to it than what meets the eye. This ceremonial law was given to the Nation of Israel, not the entire body of Christ, and this law was listed under Levitical law which was overturned when Jesus came and gave us new laws as a body of Christ. Not all of the laws given to Israel apply to the rest of us. For instance, here are some more Levitical laws we no longer follow (and these don’t cause as much of a stir as this one for some reason):

-Eating Fat (Leviticus 3:17)
-Letting your hair become unkempt (Leviticus 10:6)
-Wearing clothes with rips and/or holes (Leviticus 10:6)
-Drinking alcohol in Holy Places (Leviticus 10:9) [This one is a bit of a problem for all of the Catholics out there, huh?]
-Eating an animal with a divided hoof, i.e. pig or rabbit (Leviticus 11:4-7)
-Eating or touching the carcass of any seafood without fins or scales, i.e. anything besides fish like crawfish, crabs, lobster, shrimp, etc. (Leviticus 11:10-12)
-Going to church within 33 days after giving birth to a boy (Leviticus 12:4)
-Going to church within 66 days after giving birth to a girl (Leviticus 12:5)

That being said, in my opinion and through my reading of the Word, and my beliefs on the topic, I believe it can be a sin to get a tattoo, but it depends on your motivation, the image you are getting, and what your tattoo may say about you to others. I believe it is a personal decision and it is up to that person’s discretion. Think of what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:23: “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.” If the tattoo you are getting helps, edifies, and shows Christ, then why not? If it may take some explaining and may distract people from Christ, then it may be something you may want to reconsider. My dad (who is completely anti-tattoo by the way) says “if you feel that strongly about something, buy the t-shirt.”

What It Means to be a Godly Father

So I missed the boat on posting this by Father’s Day, and you’ve probably already read a ton of blog posts on this topic because last Sunday was Father’s Day, but guess what? It’s important to remember these guidelines year-round; not just on Father’s Day. Wouldn’t you agree?!

Anyway, bare with me and read along on a redundant topic, but one that is well-worth the attention.

What does it mean to be a Godly Father?

I’m sure when asked we would all say things like “going to church” and “praying for our families.” But it is so much more than that.

In a society full of darkness and a culture where it is deemed “the norm” to have single mother households, we need the men of this world to step up, take responsibility, and be the anchor their family so desperately needs.

Just to State Some Facts:

According to the 2014 U.S. Census, 23.6% of U.S. children (17.4 million) lived in father-absent homes. Of those children, the ones living in female-headed homes with no spouse present had a poverty rate of 47.6%. This is over four times the rate for children living in the homes of married couple families. Families need fathers. Mothers need additional moral, financial, and physical support. Children need their fathers too. Did you know adolescents from father-absent homes were 3.5 times more likely to experience pregnancy by the age of nineteen than were adolescents from father-present homes. Moreover, the rate of pregnancy among adolescents from father-absent homes was 17.4% compared to only a 4% percent rate in the general adolescent population. There are plenty of additional statistics out there that are available to research further and the numbers do not lie. Fathers are SO important to a family.

What Does the Bible Say about being a Godly Father?

God has designed fathers to be the leader in their marriage and in their household. 1 Corinthians 11:3 says “But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ; the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” This establishes the order of authority within the home and sets boundaries for your children to follow as well.

As a child growing up in the South, my house was riddled with old country sayings like “Waste not, want not” and “Do as I say; not as I do.” But children have to see a Godly example in their fathers (Matthew 23:3). Children learn by example so the only way to teach them is to show them through your words and actions.

Children view their fathers are leaders and follow their example. They need somewhere to root their identity (Deuteronomy 6:6-8). In this passage, the Lord tells fathers to pass down the word of God through the next generations so their family’s identity will be centered in the Lord.

Paul teaches in 2 Thessalonians 3:10-12 that men who are lazy and refuse to work should not be allowed to eat. You have to be able to provide for yourself and your family.

Most fathers want what is best for their children, but in many cases, your children will take a different path than the one you would have chosen for them. They may not have the profession you would like for them to have, they may not think college is their next step post-high school, they may not ever have children, or whatever else you think they may need to do, but they are living their life and you must love your child unconditionally as Christ has loved you. Do you think you have always stayed on the path your Heavenly Father wanted you to be on (or your earthly father for that matter)? We all stray and we all have different ways of doing things, but a father’s love is SO very important. Think back to the story of the prodigal son. When the son returned, the father did not judge the son or force him to earn back his favor, love, and approval. He simply embraced him and threw a celebratory party for him (Luke 15:20-24). Why? Because he was his son and he loved him despite all that had happened.

You must love the mother of your children as much as you love yourself (Ephesians 5:25-29). Showing your children you love their mother, whether it be through grand gestures, or simple nuances, you are teaching your sons how they should treat their wives and teaching your daughters how their future husbands should treat them. You are setting the bar for the kind of person your child will end up with later in life. Do not take this responsibility lightly.

Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Ephesians 6:4 echoes the Proverbs passage, saying, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” It is not good enough just to make children go to church, say their prayers, and learn Bible verses. Those things ought to be part of the training process; however, we don’t come to know Jesus or grow in Him simply by going through the motions of “church” or “religion” or whatever you want to call it. The issue as a father is teaching a child to love the Lord as they model their own love for Him.

In order to show your children Christ through your words and actions, you first have to spend time with them. Be involved in their lives. Take time out of your day to read with them, play with them, ask them questions, etc. Giving your child your time demonstrates your love for them. Ephesians 5:1-2 says, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”

Another important one that is very controversial among parents everywhere is disciplining your children. Even our heavenly father disciplines those sons whom He loves (Hebrews 12:6), and the fact that a father is willing to discipline his children demonstrates love. Young children need to know their boundaries as it makes them feel secure. As kids grow older, they must see that they don’t run the home and that Biblical principles will be followed in the home. Discipline reinforces these realities through imposing consequences. But it must be evident to the children when they are being disciplined that the father’s love for them has not changed. Discipline is never aligned with wrath because it is kindness that leads to repentance (Romans 2:4). Discipline is simply another expression of love (Deuteronomy 8:1-6, Hebrews 12:6).

So to sum it up, a Godly Father should love God, love others, teach their children the right ways in Christ, work hard in everything he does, discipline his children when they do wrong, and love them always-despite their wrongdoings. In doing so, you will be a great example of a Godly Father to your kids. Know that no one is perfect. You will stumble. You will lose your temper. You will say a cuss word when you drop something on your toe. You will do wrong, but through the wrong, know how to show your kids how to correct the wrong (i.e. ask them for forgiveness when you lose your temper or ask them to pray with you when you are having a rough day, etc.). Use everything as a teaching moment to bring your kids closer in their walk with Christ.

A Super Special Father’s Day at Our House

Our two youngest daughters got saved during Vacation Bible School this year at our church. We were ecstatic. We were even more excited about what followed-their baptism. Because we have a blended family, it took a little shuffling to make sure everyone’s schedules could accommodate this joyous occasion, but finally, we were able to get them dunked! 🙂

I was thinking about how special baptism is, what it symbolizes in our lives, and then I started thinking about how God has a time and a plan for everything. How cool is it that our girls were baptized on Father’s Day?! A day that is meant to celebrate how important our father is to us and all he does in our lives…our girls got to give themselves to their Holy Father and made an outward confession of faith before the entire congregation to their “Capital F” Father.

How am I feeling about the whole thing? BLESSED!

The Bible Journaling Movement: What is Your Opinion?

So as an artistic individual, I have seen many of my Facebook friends or bloggers I follow join the “Bible Journaling Movement” and have been intrigued by the phenomenon. I have heard a lot of controversy on the issue in my personal life; mostly by the baby boomer generation. They feel like “doodling” in your Bible, the most sacred book in the world, is disrespectful. But is it disrespectful? Is it wrong to join “the movement?”

To see what it was about for myself, I bought a journaling Bible. I had been watching my friends post their creations for weeks and was falling in love with the idea. I like to get creative with things and so one night, after gathering up my colored pencils and a little courage, I decided to take the leap and drew my first creation in my Bible.


I found the whole experience to be awesome. Do you want to know why? Because not only was I “doodling” in my Bible, but I was reading a passage, meditating on it, thinking about how it applies to my life, and then creating an image that depicted what that passage means to me.

I feel like this new “movement” is an EXCELLENT way to get young people interested in the word. It allows them to express themselves, and yet, learn their Bible. If you’re a visual person like me, it also allows you to visually view what you just read and will more readily be able to regurgitate that information because I will see the picture in my head and know “Psalms 147:4 talks about how amazing God is and that he knows impossible-to-know things like how many stars are in the night sky.”

What is your opinion on Bible Journaling? Are you for or against “the movement?” Why?

Check out these other amazing journals I have come across:

The Terror Attack on Orlando, FL from my perspective, as a Christian

I’m sure you’ve probably heard about the mass shooting that took place last weekend in Orlando, Florida. If not, read more about it here: http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/12/us/orlando-nightclub-shooting/

On Social Media, the world was booming with people’s thoughts and opinions on the attacks. I read many horrible slurs, many close-minded individuals spilling forth their poison, and witnessed MANY people, within the church, saying things referencing that God destroys sin and that the victims of the attacks deserve what happened because they lived a sinful life. “Let he without sin cast the first stone!” NEWSFLASH: We all live a sinful life. If you think God had any part in those attacks last Sunday, then you apparently don’t know the loving, compassionate, merciful God that I serve.

I saw someone post this article on Facebook several hours after the horrific attack on Sunday and honestly, it really got under my skin and I could not keep quiet on the issue any longer.

Here is a link to the article they posted:  https://blogs.thegospelcoalition.org/kevindeyoung/2015/07/01/40-questions-for-christians-now-waving-rainbow-flags/

If you don’t want to read it, here is the gist of it:
-it was written by Pastor Kevin DeYoung
-it states that Christians are becoming too politically correct and are too afraid to step on people’s toes (I agree).
-it lists a bunch of questions that “true” Christians should be asking themselves to make sure they are staying true to Christ.

I felt that most of the questions were completely bogus though and that in posting this article mere hours after an entire group of people, mostly within the LGBT community were targeted and killed, the person who posted the article was justifying the act of terrorism.

This was my response to her Facebook post:

“In posting this mere hours after a tragic massacre occurred, despite what your true intentions were, it looks as though you are saying these victims deserved what they received simply because they live a lifestyle you disagree with. As a Christian, I do not support gay marriage and never have. I do, however, support loving one another and showing Christ in everything we do. So to answer some of the questions in the article you posted (because answering them all would be tedious):

1. I don’t believe gay marriage is something to be celebrated, but I believe we should love one another despite differences and ostracizing an entire group of people is only going to push them further from the light of Christ.

5. I do not think Jesus would have been “okay” with “homosexual behavior”, but, and that’s a very big but, Jesus hung out with prostitutes and the morally corrupt in order to show God’s love and mercy and kindness. Think back to the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. Samaritans and Jews were not to associate with one another; yet Jesus asked her for water. This woman had 5 husbands and was now living with a 6th man who was not her husband, yet Jesus did not shun her. He spoke with her and listened to her speak and showed her God’s plan for her life. God uses flawed people to show hope to a flawed world.

14. Children probably do best with a mother and a father, statistically speaking, but all children really need is food, shelter, encouragement, and love. They need a loving environment. There are plenty of single parents out there raising children who turn out just fine. There are plenty of sisters or brothers or aunts/uncles/cousins/etc. raising children in homes without both male/female influence and those kids are not “turning gay” or becoming menaces to society.

19. This question is absurd and has nothing to do with the topic at hand. “Do you think close family members should be allowed to get married?” If people with the same DNA are getting married, their children are going to have physical and mental problems due to incest. Gay people getting married (who cannot procreate without intervention, mind you) would not be bringing physically and mentally challenged people into the world willingly and knowingly.

25. Absolutely. We live in America and have freedom of speech for a reason so if someone disagrees with homosexual practices, they should be allowed to exercise their religious beliefs without fear of punishment, retribution or coercion. Exercising your religious beliefs should not include hating, slandering, bullying, or other malicious acts/forms of speech that can be seen going on in the church currently by people claiming to be Christians.

35. It is absolutely possible to love someone and disagree with decisions they make. That being said, have you ever heard the phrase “you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar?” You can tell an LGBT person you disagree with their lifestyle all day long. There is nothing wrong with expressing your opinion. It becomes wrong when you ostracize them, hate them, have malice in your heart and mind towards them, etc.

I’ll end my statement the same way Mr. Kevin DeYoung decided to close his article because it works both ways. “Food for thought, I hope. At the very least, something to chew on before swallowing everything the world and Facebook put on our plate.”

Let me know what you think about how Christians should “handle” the LGBT community. How should we react to acts of terror such as this? How should we behave when it comes to politically correctness in society?

As of yet (nearly a week later), she has yet to respond to my comment and it has received dozens of likes. It is very justifying to know that there are still “good” people in the world who stand for good values and try to truly show Christ in all that they do.

Just remember: “God uses flawed people to show hope to a flawed world.”
