Good Morning, ladies! I have a special blogger (with a great blog) to share with you today. :)
Heather writes at You'll find all kinds of wonderful topics - Family Night Fridays, Give-aways, Reviews, a Good Morning club and more!
Below is Heather's testimony, which I know you'll enjoy... and please take time to visit her blog as well!
1. Can you introduce yourself? :)
My name is Heather and I am a SAHM to four children ages 9,7,4 & 2. I am just a 32 year old mom still figuring out who I am and who God wants me to be :)
2. How did you come to know Jesus Christ in a personal way?
I came to the Lord at the age of 4 and He has always been with me and guiding me. I have grown know Him more as I matured naturally and was able to read and comprehend the scriptures. I really dont know a time when I didnt have a close relationship with the Lord. I did waiver in faith when I allowed doctrine to take over. I struggled for a year in trying to understand what a particular church was teaching because it went against how I was brought up and made me question my relationship with the Lord. The good that came out of the year of darkness, was that I dug into the word and know I firmly know what I believe instead of being spoon fed by preachers.
3. What is “the story” or the main themes of your life?
Faith that the Lord is who He says HE is. From Him being my Father and Friend, to being my Protector and Provider.
4. How do you see God using this story to encourage others or to mold you?
Its hard to give everyone the whole story of what God has done in my life, but I hope that through some of my history others will see the hand of God and be drawn to a deeper walk with Him.
5. In what ways have you seen God be glorified in your life?
I find that the closer I get to Him the more I want to be like Him. My attitude is much better and I find myself praising Him during the day when I start my day off with some time alone in prayer. By seeking to live my life as Christ, I know others have been drawn to me and I am able to share with them and pray for them. I am not perfect and am not afraid to own up to my mistakes and ask for forgiveness. By living everyday and striving to live in love, I glorify God even in my weakness.
6. Can you give an example from your life of Romans 8:28 – all things working together for good?
My husband and I lived about 4 hours away from our family for about 3 years. We had just moved back to Indiana , where we are from, and my husband was offered a job in Georgia. We moved away from our family again, this time it was 12 hours away. Feeling stranded yet trusting that God knew best was extremely hard for me as a mother of 3 young children and seven months pregnant with my fourth. The Dr. I found in Georgia was making me have a c-section due to a previous c-section. I was totally aginst this due to lack of help during my recovery time. When my fourth child was born the Dr. had said that if I went natural the baby or I could have died because she was laying on top of the placenta. Neither of us knew this because all the ultra sounds came back normal. I thank God for leading me to the right Dr that would not give into my pleas for a natural birth. Not only was I blessed with my fourth child, but also we found that my oldest had special needs and the city we moved to has the best Special Needs Therapy School. Had we stayed in Indiana, the desire of our heart, we could have lost our baby in child birth and lost our oldest daughter in the school system since there is nothing to meet her needs there. The Lord truly knows best.
7. What is your prayer today – and how can we be praying for you?
My prayer today is to continue to have a growing desire to be like Jesus and to be a mirror that reflects every aspect of His character.
Thank you for sharing your testimony, Heather! God bless you today :)
