Lord, Help Me be a Mother

I wrote Lord, Help Me be a Mother when I was asked to share my story with a group of ladies during a Fellowship Day fifteen years ago. I prayed for guidance from the Lord to help me show everyone what an awesome God we have. I hoped that by the end of my talk they would see how God had touched and still touches my life in a very special way and how blessed I am because of it!

I have always been encouraged to write my story down so it could reach others facing that unknown direction in their lives. Stories of Life gave me the opportunity to share that one glimpse of God’s beautiful plan for me.
