Hi! I am Meredith, I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Gregg, for the past 8 years and we have 5 beautiful children! Brayden, Kenadi, Kaidi, Asher and Atlas. Brayden and Kenadi are twins and God gave me 2 wonderful years with them before He called them to their eternal home in Heaven with Him. As hard as it was living without them, God had already blessed me with carrying another child and 4 months later I gave birth to my daughter, Kaidi who brought more joy than you could ever imagine! 19 months after she was born, He blessed us with my blonde headed little sweetheart, Asher and a surprising 11 months later, WILD baby boy Atlas arrived making sure to make such an entrance in to this world that there would be no more after him. We currently live with my parents until we figure out where/what we are going/doing next.
Now, I'm not sure how great of an introduction it is (and to be honest, I would probably nervously add/change a few things) but it's simply stated and I don't feel like I have to explain anything more. I don't know why that would seem so difficult to say, but there's just something about it that makes me nervous! I can write all day long, but talking gets me every time! :)
I have been asked by a few different people about sharing my story in public. For years now, I have talked about how I was NOT a public speaker for all sorts of reasons. I can feel God calling me in that direction and I know that I need to be obedient to God and step out in Faith and trust Him, because He WILL provide and He will help me through. For so long I have "hidden" from much of "my story" because of my discomfort with public speaking, but I see now that God gave me this story and I need to share for those that need to hear of His never ending comfort, His Everlasting Love, His ability to take something messy and turn it into a message! Even if it is only one person who is meant to hear, it's worth it! I pray all the time that God would help me with this, that He would calm my insecurities and give me the strength to say, "yes" the next time I am asked.
Do any of you ever feel inadequate in the things God has called you to do? Are you struggling with stepping out and having faith? Let this quote be an encouragement! :)
|I love this! How true it is! With God, anything is possible! :)|
