I turned thirty this week. My twenties were personally challenging for me. Unlike many twenty-year-olds, I didn’t get to go off to college, live in a dorm or “find myself”. My parents never thought to prepare me for college, searching out scholarships, saving money and I never considered that I would have to worry about it until it was too late. So I stayed home, went to community college, decided to go to beauty school to help pay my way through college and worked. Shortly before my twentieth birthday I met a boy . . . who only a few months later would become my husband. I moved out of my parents’ house into a home with my husband and continued school and work until our first little baby arrived.
The other day I spoke about Purpose in Pain. This video takes us way beyond that. Having survived a near fatal plane crash, Stephanie Nielson teaches us the joys in having faith in God and our Savior Jesus Christ.
I am not my body. I am beauty, I am a mother. ~ Stephanie Nielson
