Jesus is my help and my salvation. He blessed me with a wonderful husband and two boys, Jordan and Braydon. Jordan was born with Down Syndrome.
God has been leading our family through this disability maze for twenty years. I haven't always felt like I have been blessed. In the beginning of this beautiful walk, I felt betrayed and alone. God gently held me during that phase. There have been many days that I struggled with fear, but Jesus is always there to still my heart and comfort me.
On two separate occasions when I felt myself on the verge of breakdown, He has given me visions and moments of incredible peace.
Doctors told me, "Jordan may never talk or walk." Thankfully the doctors were wrong. With God's help we were "ABLE" to conquer both. Jordan is "ABLE" to drive a four-wheeler and work a job, and he always works at the altar no matter where we go. Jordan is also "ABLE" to tell you there is only one God and His name is Jesus! To God be the glory for our "ABLEs"!
