Christie Thornton is the wife to her awesome husband Adam and a mom to her wonderful boys Quinton and Travis. But what givers her hope, strength, confidence, and the value she so desires is her relationship with Jesus Christ. Brokenness claims the lives of so many ladies, but thankfully it doesn’t have the last word. My prayer is for all ladies (both young and old) to hear God’s Truth and those ugly lies they’ve come to accept as truth be revealed and torn down. I pray we all realize we are NOT defined by our past regrets, hurts, circumstances. Our true identity is with Christ. Honestly and humbly bring your brokenness to God and let Him refine, restore, redeem, and reclaim your heart! I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
