Connie Pritchett’s Story in her own words on August 21st, 2017.
When I was a little girl, I lost my dad at age 11, and my mom, could not take care of us, and so I had to give up, both of my parents, and so I went into a Foster home, there was noone else to take care of me, so I was all alone, and My Foster parents were up in age, and it was obvious to me, that I would lose them too. I felt like there was little hope for my situation… it seemed like everyone around me, had their parents. And it began to take a toll on my health…
But I was in church, which was the one thing that kept me going… and somehow… I heard this scripture:
All things work together for good to them that love the Lord, and and are called according to his purpose…. Romans 8:28.
So I repented, and gave my heart to the Lord.
When I heard that scripture, it served as a foundation for me, and I knew that somehow, someway.. things would work out, and this scripture… is still on my refrigerator.. today.
And I totally believe, that life averages out… when we set our minds.. our hearts.. and ask Jesus to come into our hearts…
I have lived a wonderful, blessed, life…
With love to all.
Now is your chance to tell your story (in a paragraph or two), of why you have thrived rather than survived, and what you went through and how you became a better, stronger, more empathetic person through it all.
Most everything, if you allow distance, time, thought and self introspection, you can find a lesson learned or wisdom gained.
