It takes courage to try something new. Imagine you are a teenager, pregnant, and you are walking into someone's house for dinner (someone you don't know). You would probably be dealing with competing emotions as you take that first step into the unknown. It takes bravery, strength, and courage! Week after week, we see moms display these very attributes. We asked one of our friends to share about her experience as she stepped into the unknown and got involved with Around the Table. Enjoy!
I prayed for a long time about the name of the ministry God had placed in my heart. Not just any name would do, it had to have meaning. On March 7, 2014, I was reading Genesis 6 and when I came to verse 8 it caused me to pause, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” As I looked up the meaning of grace I read that it meant favor. I believe that we have favor with God, and that it is because of his saving grace that we can have relationship with him. This verse made me think back to a time when my boy was small and we were just getting established in a place of our own.
