  1. Reading this story, so absolutely open and honest, was very refreshing. I am so glad we were able to meet! You played a very important role in my life and my walk with God you may not have even realized, every time we got together!

    • Michelle you did for me as well. I remember the first day we met, at my house, at one of our “Fort Knox MWF” meetings. I remember being astounded when you tried to change the conversation from general small-talk and talk about things we could praise God for instead…blessings. I knew then that we would be friends…just didn’t realize how good of friends. I’m so glad that God brought you into in my life and even though you weren’t a part of PWOC as much, you were one of “those friends” who really showed me grace and that it was okay to be close to people that were not “my kind” of Christians. I love you girl. Thanks for your comment!

    Aprille, I have tears in my eyes at such a beautiful story of grace! So inspiring, and such a wonderful conclusion. I know you have struggled a lot of the past few years I’ve had the pleasure of knowing you, albeit virtually (I’m trying to work out just how long it’s been… At least 5 years, and more for sure!), and it’s been so encouraging to see you fight through everything. I may have moved overseas, but it was with my family. You’ve lived without your husband for months at a time! I look forward to seeing what God has in store for you in the future! xx

    • At least since 2008…so yeah, quite a while. 🙂

      I always wonder what people who have known me for longer think of me…I just hope that my transparency about my struggles helps others realize that they are not alone and that it’s okay to not have everything figured out! Thanks for being my friend through it all!
