A Mother’s Hope

Dawn Madden

 

We all have a story that makes our walk with God shareable.  There was a time in my life when I had lost all hope. I was traumatized nine years ago by a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. My third consecutive miscarriage caused the weeks, months, and years to follow to be the darkest I had walked through.

Explaining my grief to loved ones just made the feelings resurface and I never felt like anyone truly understood, so naturally I found a way to grieve alone.  My desire for more children only got stronger as time went on.  I truly wanted His will for my life, so I accepted that maybe another child wasn’t part of my story.  Since then, my faith has grown stronger and I have learned that beauty can come from the ashes.  God loves me and wants me to live a victorious life.

It’s been nine years and we now have three teenagers aged 18, 16, 14 and a special 18 month old!  You see, He wasn’t finished blessing me! And what a gift our later baby has been.    “Behold children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a WARRIOR so are the children born in one’s youth.” Psalm 127:3-7

I wanted to be a part of sharing this message of hope, not only because I LOVE the beautiful pieces of jewelry, but also because the message of putting on the full armor of God daily is something I believe in and want to share with others how empowering it is.

I am confident that every struggle and every victory are designed by God.  I am honored to be a warrior for the Gracewear Collection and excited to help share the message of hope and inspire women to be shielded by His grace.  The opportunity to host Gracewear Gatherings has been rewarding and so much fun!
