Praise Report

I just wanted to share a quick testimony! Daniel and I decided before we were married that we would not plan our marriage or our children around money. We knew that was the opposite of what most people did and I'm sure there are lots of people that thought and still do think we were/are being irresponsible. Well, we very well may be but what we have seen over and over in our lives is that when we put God/marriage/children ahead of money that God always comes through and provides whatever we need right when we need it! We made a risky decision to get married when we were just 19 and Daniel did not have a decent job until a week or 2 before our wedding but it came when we needed it! We ended up having our two boys while Daniel was in college and not once did I have to get a job. The 3 years that Daniel was in college were 3 of the happiest years of our lives and we look back on them with the best of memories! Things have been tight at times but not once have we ever had a need that God didn't provide for. We again made what most people would call a stupid decision to try for another child just months after Daniel lost his job in Bluefield. However, now that we are expecting our 4th child we are really beginning to see even more breakthroughs in our family business. Praise God! We know that only God could do this for us and we give Him ALL the glory! It is nothing we have done on our own. I just want to encourage you all to do whatever God puts on your heart to do and trust Him alone to provide for you!

Hey there - thanks for your blog message. I hope you will follow my blog so we can keep up with each other.
God can do nothing but bless you for being faithful to His word and will for your family. I will be praying for the financial strain to be lifted and for the safe and healthy delivery of baby #4.
