when our lives feel out of our control. Freedom comes when we trust our faithful God.
On September 7, 2007 I was convicted of capital murder and sent to a maximum-security
prison for “life without the possibility of parole.” I was convicted of the death of my son, a crime I did not commit. I started questioning everything! Fear consumed me! My five children were left
without a mother, and Emma, my 7 month old, was still nursing. I knew God was God and He
was sovereign, but I couldn't grasp how He could love me and allow all of this to happen. How
could I have faith that He had good plans even when my world had turned upside down?
My physical freedom had been taken away, but God had plans to use this to bring freedom to so
many more. On May 10th of this year, I was finally declared actually innocent! God has turned
this tragedy into so much more! He began a ministry that has and is touching the world with His
love! This workshop will explore how to move from fear to faith to freedom.
- Fear: Perfect love casts out fear! (1John 4:18) God’s love is perfect and His plans for you are good!
- Faith: God is faithful! We can have faith even when life seems out of control, because His faithfulness will carry us through and work all things out for good!
- Freedom: When we put Jesus between us and our fears, putting our trust in Him, we can not only find freedom, but help others to find it as well.
