Yesterday my grandmother called to chat.  She isn't doing well so I guess she is taking the time to call all of us and say what is weighing on her heart.  She and I have always been able to have deep conversations, and I've always felt like I could talk to her about anything.  We were discussing God and forgiveness, and where she thought God had led me, and that she was proud of the woman I had become.  About two years ago, I went to the front of my church, and I asked my pastor to pray with me.  I knew that I had a terrible need to control every single thing in my life, and I needed God's help to allow Him to take control.  The pastor prayed with me and shortly after that things happened in my life that weren't the easiest to go through.

My husband and I had been having a lot of trouble getting pregnant with our second child,  After many failed attempts with fertility drugs, we had decided that another baby just might not be in the cards for us.  Shortly after, I had to have my gallbladder removed and learned that it was so bad, I had gangrene.  A few weeks of recovery and I was much better, but I missed some work, and money was low.  Shortly after that I found out I was pregnant.  Such a blessing!! With that blessing came sacrifices.  I was placed on 4 months of bed rest, and I couldn't work either of the two jobs I had.  Money was tight to say the least.  Furlough days at my husband's job only worsened our situation.

Then I found Premier.  Premier has not only blessed us financially but spiritually as well.  This company was founded on Biblical principles.  Joan and Andy Horner vowed to always serve people in the name of the Lord.  As I was talking to my grandmother yesterday, I reflected back on what the last two years had brought for my family and me, and I realized that the day I asked God to take control, He did.  The last two years haven't been easy by any means, but they have brought us HERE!!!  My faith has remained strong, and continues to grow stronger because of God and the people he has put in my path.  I am thankful everyday for what Premier has done for me, and I look forward to the years to come.  I know that I am where I should be with a company that puts God and people first before all else.  I finally let God lead me, and I am now home with both of my children, and very blessed to have the life I have.  I'm surrounding myself with all the right people in my life, and I know that God has good things in store for me.  I can't wait!!!
