I’m from rural Mississippi but grew up in Florida. I was a cheerleader in high school and dreamed of having a successful news anchor career. Then I envisioned getting married in my early 30’s and starting a family around 40 years old.
That WAS the “plan”. Well… all that changed when I met a professional baseball player at 19 years old, got married at 21, and started a family in my mid 20’s.
Life hasn’t gone as I planned. Does that sound familiar? I have 4 amazing children (including one that needed a liver transplant at 2 years old that kept us in and out of hospitals for over 2 years), I never became a news anchor, my husband never made it to the big leagues, and life has been wonderfully imperfect and totally not the way I dreamed it would be.
But, I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world! I have been on adventures I never imagined. I have witnessed miracles that only God could make happen. I have experienced blessings that only God could provide!
God has a plan for me and my family — a plan for hope and a future! And, it is much greater than anything I could have ever dreamed of. And, he has an amazing plan for you too!
