Motherhood is the light that reignited the fire inside me!
From the outside looking in it seemed as if I had it all together. I was traveling across the nation, doing speaking events and was beyond blessed financially. But, I was dying inside. I was scared, lost, confused, and prideful. I was seeking approval from the wrong people and searching for my purpose in all the wrong places.
I sat in the dark praying for God to send me a sign, to just talk to me. Then, in February of 2018, I found out I was pregnant.
Many people had their opinions of what I should do – abortion, adoption and some were fully supportive of me keeping the baby. For the first time, I made a decision on my own without caring what anybody would think and it was the best decision I have ever made.
The first day I interviewed for Casa Teresa, I sat in the hallway with tears in my eyes, afraid and scared but also hopeful of the person this place would make me into; the women I’ve always desired to be. After my first week, I knew this place was invested, not just in me becoming a mother, but in healing me, inside and out.
In October of 2018, my daughter was born. Motherhood is God’s most beautiful creation. It’s the drive and motivation every day to do the best I can, to do more for the sake of my daughter. I have another purpose in life and that’s being Eve’s mother, but it also makes me fight harder to make the world a better place.
I never imaged how drastically different my life could be in just six months. Casa Teresa has played such a huge role in my transition to motherhood because of the tools I have learned, relationships I have built and so much healing that has taken place. All of these experiences prepared me to be the best mother I could possibly be.
