I met Jennifer a couple of years ago at elementary school pick up time. She is just seemed like a normal mom but as I got to know her, her story unfolded before me. She has faced great loss yet experienced great joy, too. She shares her story today on the show--what happens when life is less than you imagined. When the picture in your head isn't matching what is reality. They lost jobs, lost 5 babies, had a cancer scare and adopted a special needs kid. Ups and downs, but she clings to a God who overcomes.
Jennifer's Survival Kit:
- date your spouse
- the great outdoors
- Netflix & box wine
- Community (friends & mentors)
Jennifer's heart certainly reflects the Father's. I love how even though life looked differently than she expected, she discovered that God is a god who remembers. I love how personal God proved Himself to be in their lives. I know so many of you resonate with her story--her story of loss. I want to read again what she quoted: Micah 7:8, Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light. I hope that will encourage you to survive a little easier today.
