I Believe...

...that God will give me the victory over failure.

...that God will give me the strength to endure trials and tribulations.

...that I am precious and loved by God despite my faults and weaknesses.

...that Gods faithfulness and love will guard my heart and mind.

...that I am Gods masterpiece and I am like royalty in His kingdom.

...that God is my strength and wisdom and will give me confidence.

I am a mother of 5 beautiful blessings here on earth and 5 with Jesus.  I have been through many hardships as a child growing up in an unbelieving home.  I did not come to know Christ until my 4th pregnancy ended in a stillborn baby boy.  I cried out to God for answers and heard "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness."  I did not know at first where that came from until little Nathan's funeral when the pastor said those same words.  I knew then that the Lord was speaking to me through this trial.  It was February 2004 that I made the decision to give my life to Jesus and I started reading the Bible and trying to understand what He had in store for my life.  I am still carrying a lot of baggage from my childhood, but with the help of Bible Studies and Prayer Partners, my husband and my church, and most importantly, God, I am seeing the 'light'.


  1. Colleen what a beautiful post and what pain you have been through but so glad you are seeing His light and blessing others like me through it. I had many miscarriages but never a stillbirth. Bless you for your ministry and sharing with others going through what you have been through. It took me many years to give thanks for losing so many babies, but eventually one day I did. I was able to thank God for the two beautiful children I have. I would never have had them or known them had I not gone thru the pain of losing those other babies. THANK YOU! Debbie W.
