My mom’s life is a distinct hashmark in our family timeline. She made a decision as a teenager to live for Jesus and change the future of our family tree. She wanted her children and the generations after her to not have to suffer the effects of abuse, social hardship and addiction like she and the generations before her had. Before she even knew me, she wanted the Lord to be the center of all I do and who I am. I am thankful for not only the Lord’s calling on her life, but her willingness to dig in her heels and stop the cycle that threatened to continue into her future…as well as mine and my children’s. She’s raised 4 strong and godly children, who are now raising 10 more children to know and love Jesus. She loved and served my dad fiercely to his last breath and beyond and she never gave up on her own family. She understands that no one is too far gone for the transforming power of Jesus. She is a cancer survivor and saw how the Lord used that storm to bring her mom to salvation after 35 years of sharing the gospel with her. She’s traveled with me for the most part of 12 years in the ministry of Casting Crowns to help care for my children. To say she’s left a legacy is an understatement. She’s an Ebenezer Stone in the history of my bloodline— a distinct marker between what was and what will be. Happy Mother’s Day, mama! I love you more than jelly bread!
