How I Was Touched By Mercy.

To celebrate the release of my book Touched By Mercy. I am giving away a Nookcolor eReader, check out the details on the Touched By Mercy Contest Page.

But here, I would like to give away another gift, something intangible it seems, but as real as the air we breathe.

Something free, but as costly as life's blood.

It's fitting in this Holiday Season to remember all that God has done for us, especially in giving us his son, Jesus as a sacrifice. 

I hope that you will share your story and bless others.

Has your life been Touched By Mercy?  How so?

On July 19, 2008 I miscarried my fourth child, however, I had never grieved the other children so I wound up grieving them all at once. I was very angry and bitter and wanted to die at least once a day. I would wake up in the morning with no desire to live and only got out of bed because I had two small children to take care of. I tried praying, but felt like I had failed as a woman and as a mother to my unborn children. Eventually, I was able to "heal" and the next summer gave birth to a precious son, and exactly two years after my miscarraige, I was in the hospital again with signs of a miscarraige. I was reeling with the emotions of facing another loss and realized how angry I still was at God. I spent the next three months on edge waiting for the bomb to drop and be told that I had lost this baby. I prayed that the baby would live and be strong and that God would have Mercy on me and spare me another loss. Today I am 7 months along with my pregnancy and he is strong and active. Through the last 6 months, I have seen the Mercy of a Father's love by realizing that He too has lost a child. He knows the pain of that loss and He alone has the strength to carry that burden for me.

Mama of Angels...

What an awesome and poignant story. The feelings you must have gone through and still go through I couldn't begin to understand. But I am so honored that you shared that story of how God touched your life. I hope and pray this pregnancy continues to go well for you.

In a nutshell: In January of 2007 I began struggling with an eating disorder and self-harm. I went on a downward spiral and ended up in treatment several times, and having several relapses. In the fall of 2008 I became a Jesus follower because of a woman at my church who showed me the love of God. God put some amazing people in my life who taught me how Jesus saw me. I am so grateful for the mercy He has shown me and hope to share it with girls who have struggled as I have.
