[et_pb_blurb title=”Once upon a time you probably dreamed of how your story would go…” _builder_version=”3.0.91″]

Did it end with a happily ever after?

My story hasn’t always gone as I planned or dreamed, and for many years that frustrated me…

Until, I finally decided to embrace the story God wrote for me…

Your story has probably taken some unplanned twists and turns too. So what do you do when life doesn’t turn out like you planned?

What happens when disappointment comes?

When the unimaginable becomes your reality?

When happily ever after never happens?

I’ve learned that embracing my story brings freedom and joy. And now my passion is helping like you embrace your unexpected chapters in life.

Embracing your story gives you the freedom to stop comparing your story and your journey with someone else’s.  Stepping into your story allows you take of the facade of what you think your story should look like, and live at peace with the story God wrote for you.
God is able to heal your broken heart and give you a peace that passes all understanding. Finding joy along the journey of an imperfect life gives you the opportunity to find purpose in your pain and to be refined into the woman God created you to be!

    This is sooo great ! I’m a big fan !

  2. What a priviledge to your Moma. God is so good. He has given me such joy through you and our family. May he richly bless each writing with His chosen readers. May hearts be opened to hear the CREATOR speak to each individual reader that they may know Him and experience all that you so beautifully write about.

    Hey, Carla!! How are you? So fun to be connected with my TP5 co!!! can’t wait to hear what’s going on with you!

  9. Wow…oh my goodness…!! I have really enjoyed your blog as well as your website…I am truly blessed to have you in my life…as a friend, as a neighbor..and as a spiritual sister…I am so proud of you, and the work that you have chosen to do.

    Who knew, the day that you came in that open house, and we met for the first time, just how wonderful it truly would be? I promised you then, that you could borrow eggs and sugar if you were to purchase that house…and along with the many times we have called on one another, I have gained so much. You are truly a beautiful soul, and I feel very blessed to know you.

  10. Hi Faith,
    I will be praying that you can bring your program to Wichita too. I would slove to see you and listen to the message you would bring. Our band is playing for a relief for Haiti concert Sunday. We are excited that God opened the door for participation in this concert. I would love to send you a CD, can you send me your address? Tell Carl hi for me. When are the Dove Awards? Blessings, Marcia

    Faith – Your Mom sent me the information about Carl’s new album. So I registered, but even if I don’t win, John and I will definitely go out and buy it. Congratulations on your marriage. It was very special to meet you and to get to know you at your grandma’s funeral. John and I have many wonderful memories of staying at their home and enjoying being with them. If you are ever in the Tucson area, please let us know, we would love to see you and Carl. A dear friend of ours just found out he has pancreatic cancer, so we are going to send him this CD, he is a believer and we are grateful for that. Love in Christ – Joan and John

  12. Hi Faith- I am a friend of Mela Kamin’s – I was there the day she and carl met (love love love him by the way! my entire family- huge fans!) Mela shared your link and I have been praying for your sweet little girl. I have a co-worker that is 20 weeks along with her first. She just found out she has Single Umbilical Artery which can cause genetic problems, most frequently kidneys to the baby. Is anything like what you experienced? She goes in for another ultrasound Friday the 1st. Please keep her in your prayers and if you have m=any suggestions, we would love to hear from you. You know, with all that extra time you have 😉
    Much love from SUNNY (& soggy) Minnesota, Gina

    Hey Gina 🙂

    Thanks for the kind words and support of my wonderful hubby 🙂 We appreciate it. Also, thanks for the prayers for JL. She is doing great and recovering quickly. I’m sorry to hear about your friend. I actually didn’t know that JL had a kidney issue until the day before she was born. I was not diagnosed with anything, they doctors simply saw her kindey was enlarged on the ultrasound. I wish I had more advice for your friend. And I’m sorry to hear about the complications she is facing. I will definitely be praying for her and her doctors. When I knew that Janie’s kidney was enlarged I just kept clinging to Psalm 139. I knew that God knit her together this way for a purpose {whether we will know that purpose this side of heaven, I don’t know}, and I trusted that because He knit her together and created her, He would know best how to heal her. He chose to use doctors and surgeons to heal JL. Let me know if I can be of any help to your friend. I will be praying for her. Please keep me updated on her progress.

    Thanks so much!!
