Have you felt imprisoned by fear?
Did you ever wonder, "Why me God?"
Facing life as a young woman with shattered dreams and little emotional support, I was armed with unshakeable faith and the promises in God's word. My prayer was for God to use my experiences to encourage others by sharing my painful but faith-filled journey.
Why I Love Diamonds
Yes, there is a specific reason I chose the diamond. I used to tell my daughter, when she was going through a difficult time that when you take a lump of coal and put it under tremendous heat and pressure, it becomes a diamond. Whatever the stress or challenge we are experiencing we can choose to learn from them or become bitter by them. I choose to believe that this process can make us a more beautiful person. As God cuts away the facets of our experiences it allows His light to shine through.
I often say, "I always like to look at the glass 1/2 full and find the good in any situation. I don't believe in failures, just opportunities to learn and grow."
